Southwestern University Reviews
Most of the people that come here are from small private high schools & are pretty sheltered. I guess in college they feel the need to party to an excessive extent. The whole school revolves around greek life - and this is why we’re in trouble with Title IX involving rape cases.
I once asked my professor why he made his test so much different than his assignments & he responded: "Welcome to college." There aren't many majors here. Not a lot of people know about this school outside of the area, unless they did research.
There are no healthy food choices here. Everything is pretty much preserved or has an unnecessary amount of preservatives or just fried. There was even a caterpillar in the sandwich. There's a reason it's a D-.
If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't come back.
Teachers are very passionate about what they teach and are very approachable; this also includes our current president who is very open to visitors and loves discussing elaborate topics with students. Students are worldly and well-rounded; most students are not only passionate about their chosen major(s)/minor(s) but also involved in sports and some sort of art form(s) (music, theater, painting, sculpting, photography, etc.).
Overall, this school is made unique in the fact that it is a community and most members are well-rounded individuals with many interests and passions who enjoy sharing those passions with others. I have felt welcomed from the very first time I set foot here and there is an over whelming amount of places to seek help when you need it.
