Nice Campus, just horrible staff and "racist higher ups"
I felt accepted as soon as I stepped on campus. There was someone with us on our entire stay. When we were going through our tour, they made sure that they answered any and all questions that we had. They also made sure that we had time to rest for lunch. I especially loved the rooms. Another thing that really drew me to this university is their academic programs. The fact that students are sought out by outside businesses.
I think Southern Wesleyan is a very good college. It has a solid campus layout and structure with a good student base. There are plenty of opportunities to do extracurricular activities, a good variety of sports and many chances for mission trips for global travel and aid opportunities. The staff/faculty there are really what separates the college from other places, the teacher -> student interaction is very excellent. It is a very safe and friendly environment and they truly want what is best for the student and their educational needs.
Southern Wesleyan was not one of my first choices when deciding what college I wanted to attend. I later decided that the Christian culture would be great to be around. As the year has went by I think I am enjoying it. Although chapel is a great experience, I just believe that there should not be that many mandated to attend. Maybe half of that would be better.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Southern Wesleyan University is 55%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Our college is God focused and good if you want your son or daughter to have good people around for good influences. It's fun, and when theres nothing to do there's always the random trps to wal-mart. We make it fun.
The worst part about Southern Wesleyan University is the inflexability of options in choosing which courses to take each semester. Because SWU only has a small number of professors, especially in the Religion Division, certain courses are only offered at certain times. Professors are very helpful and accomodating to seniors who are in danger of not graduating on time because of this, but as a freshman I was completely in the dark when trying to plan out my future college career. It was very difficult for me to even get any advance planning done at all.
Someone that is focus and a Christian.
Southern Weselyan is diversified by offering an AGS program in several cities and i am a current AGS student.
I wish I had known that people were so friendly. It was not as scary as I thought it was going to be :)
If you are looking for a cold, impersonal school with apathetic professors and thousands distant peers, then SWU is NOT for you. The classes are small, and faculty are willing to go above and beyond to help you succeed. The students are among some of the most kind and caring people you will ever meet.
My classmates are very close and friendly.
The atmosphere is the best thing. Everyone is so kind and has up-lifting spirit. The Chirstian atmosphere is genuine and nice.
Sometimes I feel that minorities are seen as the black sheep. We don't get many events, nor invited to some. I was quite sad to see many students (and even facutly and staff) treat minorities a little differently. Pretty shocked for this to be a Christian school. Expected so much more.
The classroom at my school is like the typical high school classroom in regards to size and atmosphere.
Social life, community, spirituality, classes are interesting
My school is best known for its quality education with a christain perspective.
