Southwestern Christian University Reviews
I absolutely loved the school. From beginning to end the staff and students were so overwhelmingly welcoming. They always did everything to include everyone in everything and bind us all together with God. The sports were competitive and all the students supported every athlete at every sport! For such a small school they sure can create a big family at a fast rate! The teachers were also a huge help and they are very realistic with everything and are very hands with students to secure success.
It's an okay campus, and the people are friendly. But they treat you like you're 12. Although there is no more curfew, you still can't do anything. You can't party, God forbid you touch any alcohol even if you're 21. They'll put you on probation for anything. Drinks, PROBATION. Touches any substance that the university doesn't agree with, PROBATION. Doesn't go to chapel 28 times, PROBATION. It's actually ridiculous. Athletic facilities are pretty dumpy. The equipment looks like it was bought from a retirement home. Equipment is broken and takes forever to get fixed. Most of the coaching staff is nice so I guess that's okay. The trainers do their best, they're okay. At times they make questionable decisions. The gym is about what you'd expect from a small school. The cafeteria food is not the best, but the manager is a great dude and tries his best. He doesn't have much to work with in the first place, and the budget isn't much so you can't blame him for the crappy quality.
I really like SCU! There is always an event going on here and things to do, even for a small campus. Because the campus is small, everyone knows everyone, making friends easy to happen. The professors are always available and are willing to help you succeed.
