    Campus Safety

    SWCU has a Safety Program and Policy handbook that is updated every year. They have security available on campus grounds and in the dorms. They also offer CPR and sports management safety classes.

    Greek Life

    To my knowledge, SWCU does not have Greek Life; however, they do offer Greek courses and literature.

    Clubs and Activities

    SWCU has a huge selection of clubs and activities to get involved in. There is the Fellowship of Christian Athletics, Kappa Kappa Pi, student-led Worship Services, the music department, and heap of sports--to name a few.

    Great for these types of students

    I believe this University is great for any type of student, but especially for the one's interested in ministry and want a closer walk with God. There is such a wide range of denominations that are represented there. They do not discriminate against any race, creed, or sex.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every Friday some students from SWCU volunteer at the City Rescue mission and minister to some of the young homeless people there. I think this is a cool tradition. It is great that the students want to reach out to their community.

    Bang for the buck

    I really enjoy the convenience of being an online student at this time in my life; however, based on all that I have read and heard about this University, I wish I could experience on-campus life there. It would be so neat to be a part of their music program and worship services.

    What to do for fun

    SWCU has a wide range of activities to participate in for fun. For instance, they offer a variety of sports for men and women, like basketball, bowling, soccer, and track--just to name a few. Also, there are numerous campus clubs and organizations that are non-sporting, such as music.

    Food and Dining

    I heard that SWCU offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner on campus. Unfortunately, since I am an online student, I am unable to enjoy those nutritious meals.

    Dorm Life

    Last Year, SWCU had their ground breaking for their new Dorm. They offer Bible studies and prayer at each dorm. And they provide security. I am an online student at SWCU. Therefore, I am unable to give too much information regarding Dorm Life since I do not have any first-hand experience.

    Academic Rigor

    SWCU strives for excellence. They require honesty and hard work from each student. The staff and instructors stress integrity and speak strongly against plagiarism.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are seeking a school that has a wonderful selection of Associate, Bachelor, and Master Programs to choose from, give SWCU a visit or a call. This University has a pleasant Christian atmosphere. They intertwine faith with each program.

    In three sentences

    Southwestern Christian University offers on campus and off campus classes or degrees online. The student services staff at this University is friendly and goes the extra mile to be helpful. The professors have the student's best interest at heart and desires for their students to succeed.

    What to do for fun

    My friends and I love to watch Disney movies. We find ourselves having movie marathons in our common areas. We also love to play sand volleyball and workout in the schools weight room. SCU has a large parking lot where some of us will go long boarding and just hang out. I love spending quality time with people and SCU makes it easy for me to that.

    Food and Dining

    The food experience has definitely improved over the years I have been there. Personally, I love to workout and eat healthy and I can find just what I need after a workout that makes me feel like my workout was not in vain. The cafeteria offers a number of different options to fulfill anyones appetite from proteins, to salads, to pizza, to delicious desserts. You will never grow hungry!

    Dorm Life

    I love living in the dorms. As a junior, I have had the opportunity to have a few different roommates and enjoy doing life with some incredible girls. I look forward to having deep discussions with some of the best friends I have ever had. Whether it is staying up late to write a paper, or hanging out on a friday night to watch a movie in the common areas, there is never a dull moment in the resident halls. I love it!

    Academic Rigor

    I feel like the academic workload is at a level of expectancy. I feel challenged when writing papers but I feel so successful when the paper is finally completed. Everyone learns differently, so when it comes to tests, it is important to figure out which study method works best for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice for prospective students is to enjoy college while you can. Though it may be tough at first, once you find your niche, it is smooth sailing from there. Do not be afraid to ask for help from any of the professors on campus. They truly love you and want to see you succeed.

    In three sentences

    SCU is an excellent place to learn from incredible professors. Each professor deeply cares about the well-being of their students. It is great learning a biblical perspective in in any degree at this university.

    Campus Safety

    I have no idea. I live at home and I am in an online course. From what I understand, it is a very safe campus.

    Greek Life

    Does not apply. I live at home and I am in an online course.

    Clubs and Activities

    I would have no ideas. I live at home and I am in an online course.

    Great for these types of students

    Any student looking to find a school that follows the teachings of the Bible will be extremely happy with this school. I would recommend this school in a heart beat.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I would have no ideas on what is on campus. I am in an online class.

    Bang for the buck

    This is a very good school and you get your money's worth.

    What to do for fun

    I live in my own home, so what I do for fun is my normal routine.

    Food and Dining

    I cook for myself at my home. I am in an online course.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorms. I live at home. I am in an online course.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is a steady pace and the assignments can be difficult if you do not read carefully, but the work can be done and if a problem arises, all you have to do in message the professors, student support, or a classmate to get help.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are trying to find a good Christian school to attend, this is it! They walk you through the beginning processes and explain the workings of the school. When I got into this school, I had very little knowledge of how to use a computer, the student support person they assigned me help me and talked me through what I needed to know. They explain it in plain terms so that even a person of 52 can understand how to use a computer and do their work. I'm living proof.

    In three sentences

    This college fits the way I believe and the studies are well constructed. The Professors and student support staff are the best. These people make you feel as if you're a member of the family and if you have a question which needs answered or help with an assignment or anything else, they are there when you need them either by school email or by phone.
