I absolutely love it! The Christian element encourages me so much and the people and professor are amazing! The professor will always be there for you and encourage you to keep going. Since the class are smaller then they have more time for individuals. The atmosphere is wonderful!
Southwest Baptist University a great school to be at. The teachers care about what we want to be, they are always making sure we do what needed to be done. As an athlete, I was treated with the same value as every student. some classes weren't where I would want to be but the teachers find a way to keep the courses interesting. I won't say I enjoy every day at the because that would be a lie. but I enjoyed the effort of my teachers and counselors which help me graduate. The class size is great and the teachers interact with us.
Southwest Baptist University is a Christ-centered university, with many opportunities and people that can deepen your knowledge and relationship with Christ. It is also has many degrees for almost any profession and multiple professors to help with your success. I highly recommend SBU!
SBU has a Christ-centered environment and there are always people to talk to. The professors want you to succeed and they are always there to help. It is an atmosphere that is great for focusing and learning. My first year of college has been amazing here.

I would tell myself not to worry about going off to college. It is diffferent but a great new chapter to my life. Just live it up college is a time to re-event yourself. Just have fun and be yourself. You learn alot and just don't shut down and lock yourself in your room.
Theres not much I didnt know before coming. My softball coach, who attended the school as well had me fairly prepared. If I had to pick though it would be lack of diversity because I come from a big city, and then came to a small town.
I personally wouldn't know very well what is truly worst about SBU because I am not very invested in the campus life. I live off-campus and am relatively reclusive outside of attending classes, so my lack of investment is a fault of my own rather than the college. I personally dislike the presence of the football program as it seems to only drain funds on the college.
SBU is primarily known as a conservative, Christian private university with caring faculty and staff, and excellent programs in physical therapy, education, and business.
Southwest Baptist University is a caring faith based academic community that offers a wide variety of fields of study.
The best thing about my school is the community feel of the the college. It produces the movers and shakers of tomorrow by instilling a desire to be global leaders while keeping life personal.
That it is small and fits me. The school goes out it's way to help students fit in during freshmen year. They have even created a new program that each dorm has taken and fit it to themselves. My dorm had the big sister program, it turned out good and more people are planning to stay in the dorm.
My classmates are highly encouraging and hard-working students who always seem to know the right thing to say when you need a kind or uplifting word. They are also very supportive and intelligent individuals.
Nothing , because is great. What can you say about your school if it is what you are looking for??
Southwest Baptist University is a Christ-centered college which is the main reason I decided on attending there. My faith is very important to me and I believe SBU helps prepare me to be someone who is Christ-centered as well.
This is a Baptist school so anyone who doesn't want to conform to the rules of this school shouldn't attend.
I believe that all students can attend this school. The campus and school are very oriented toward a Christian lfestyle but the main goal of the University is to prepare students for life out of school. The people here are interesting, helpful, god loving people that want to pursue a career like any other student. It is a great campus for student activities, school spirit, class and major selection, as well as participating in athletics. Overall, it is a University that all students are worthy of.
The classes have a small number of students, which is great for learning. A typical general education class has around 20-30 students usually, with the classes like biology having a higher number of students. Now that I am into classes for my major, I usually have classes with about 10 people. That number varies between majors. I personally love the class sizes and how the teachers know me by name.
