University of the Southwest Reviews
I do really like the University of The Southwest. It is more of an athletic school more than anything. It is a very small campus but the people/professors are great! Only athletes live on campus and attend in-class classes. So, the environment is very nice. A few things that should change with this university is the food. The cafeteria food is not the best. Being athletes and being constantly hungry then to go to the caf to eat is bad. Other then that maybe they should try to expand their schools because they do not have a wide selection with majors. Those are the only negatives, everything else is awesome.
My experience here has been pretty good so far. I got to play baseball here and go to school as well an its helped me make great life long friends that I will forever be grateful for. Its a pretty small town so there really isn't much to do when I am not playing baseball or doing homework, but having close friends is what mad it more fun outside of school. Not only did my teammates become close but we became a family and that's another reason I enjoy it here. It is pretty small so it would be nice to see it grow some more even though it has grown little by little in the time that I have been here.
University of the Southwest is a good school. All of their professors already have their masters degree or are currently working on their masters. The athletic rate at University of the Southwest is 95% and of course as always accademics always come first. The coaches there have study halls so that the athletes can stay on top of class. There is only classes Monday through Thursday so we have the weekend off to catch up on any work that we may and attend any student activities or games. Classes are only based on your major so you won't just get thrown into some random class. Classes are typically done by about two o'clock in the afternoon that way the sports can practice.
