What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Southwestern has a small town feel but it has everything you could need nearby. Austin is thirty minutes away for a more city feel, but there is what people call the square; its walking distance from campus and it's basically like a small city. The atmosphere and people are great; they are always willing to help!
Lea from Georgetown, TX
Southwestern is a difficult school, but it is worth the amount of work, both for the future and learning opportunities. It has a friendly community of faculty and staff, as well as students.
