I love SWOSU, there are great people and it feels like home. I believe it isn't for everyone-no college is, but it was for me! Its small, but bigger than my hometown. It was kind of boring at times, and I must admit places like OU do make me envious, but at what cost? Super cheap for quality education. I am super shy so believe me when I say people here are so friendly! I even made friends, if I can you can, trust me.

SWOSU is an awesome school to attend. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, the professors are helpful, and the opportunities are endless for students to get involved!
This college is very affordable and offers a small yet robust science-based atmosphere. The pharmacy program is sought after by students from around the world. Other biology and chemistry classes are well-funded with wonderful laboratories and friendly professors. If you're interested in biology and chemistry, and you're looking for a small town, this is the right place for you.
