My overall impression of this University is amazing. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. I am very excited to begin my program of choice at Southwest Baptist University!

I recently completed my first semester at SBU. The instructors take an interest in your learning, they don't act like teaching is just a job. I would recommend SBU to anyone looking to further his education.
