Southwestern University Reviews
Although at first glance I was not completely sure SU would be the school for me, after simply days there I knew that I was home. The classes are small, and the teachers truly care about the individual educations of their students. I was so encouraged in my desire to pursue not only a double major, but a minor as well. Southwestern truly encourages you to reach for your dreams. And they have so many resources available for you to actually achieve those dreams. I have found lifelong mentors and friends at Southwestern, and I highly recommend it to all!
Whether it be the financial aid office or an academic department, they will go out of their way to help you. Southwestern has so much to offer, you just have to ask! Take advantage of the events that are put on throughout the year and join any of the numerous organizations on campus.
Southwestern has a wonderful feeling of community, creating a campus that is usually accepting and welcoming of those curious about their field of study. However, Southwestern falls short on its humanities studies as it transfers most funds and resources into its STEM programs, neglecting certain fields. Southwestern also faces the troubles of preventing minority groups from achieving representation and acceptance on campus.
