What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
southwestern is a phenomenal university. it provides every student with great resources to be successful. attending southwestern university was the best choice i ever made.
Maria from Jarrell, TX
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!
