What Students Are Saying

2.22 Average Rating
I would give the University of the Southwest a 8 I love everything about the school. They has small class size so the teacher has time to help and work one on one if you need it. Everyone is really nice and willing to help. There are many different teams and clubs that people can join if they wanted to. I love that this University is a Christian University and everyone you run into is not scared to let you know what they believe and why. They are ranked in the top 3 in the Mental Health Counseling Program. The only thing that led me to take a few point is the price I do not believe that college should cost as much as it does. the price of the school is the same as Big 12 school. That is a little high. I do think they do an awesome job over all. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good christian university that has both face to face and online programs.
