What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
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.
David
Southwestern University is a spectacular university largely because of its size and close-knit community. You will feel at home knowing that not only your fellow students are there to support you, but the superbly talented and intelligent faculty are eager to help you with your academic and career goals. Despite its general obscurity, Southwestern is a very prestigious university and has a very challenging but valuable course-load.
