Southwestern Assemblies of God University is a great choice for anyone who wants to pursue God while also pursuing an education. The community at SAGU is inclusive and tight-knit. The students are so welcoming to campus visitors, the staff and faculty are amazing, and the campus is absolutely beautiful.

This school was a disappointment. Although God is in the school name, the majority of the students there are not Godly. The students their look down on others, gossip, and spread rumors. Attending SAGU for one year opened my eyes to see how the AG community operates. The roommate I had, I thought was my good friend. She was supposed to send me my dorm things after I let her know I could not return. We had an agreement that I would send her money so she could ship me my things, but like many of the females, once they get into a relationship, their boyfriend is their only priority. Students are able to go on mission trips, but it is interesting to see that many of the students will go out of their way to go to undeveloped countries to spread the Gospel, but will ignore a fellow classmate based on the way they look. There is only a few students you can trust, and even then, you always have to watch your back. I felt that the people I considered friends were not genuine at all. As someone who has attended a Christian school for 7 years, starting college here was a mistake. This university is not worth the money. If you are looking for a Christian University, do no apply to SAGU. (Don't think that by attending a Christian University your relationship with God will be made stronger - not saying that it won't - but your relationship with God starts with you. You don't need a building, all you need is your Bible, a pen, paper, and some alone time)

i love sagu and everyone in it. including the professors, students, and staff. i’ve made a lot of friends and just has that welcoming environment that you would want to have anywhere. it may not be for everyone but it’s perfect for me because i get to grow my relationship with God, play basketball for the school, and get my education.

Austin

S.A.G.U has been one of the best experiences of my life. The friends I have made there are amazing and there is always something to do, or some event going on. The area is great, it has a small town feel to it but the city is still nearby. I love being here at S.A.G.U.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time, I would make sure I looked into more colleges and went with one where I could get the same kind of education and at the same level, but one that wasn't so expensive. Also, I would ensure myself that just because I am a freshman does not mean I have to act like a "typical" freshman. Doing ALL of my school work is crucial and getting as many scholarships and as much financial aid as possible will really help in t he long run!

  4. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about my school is the environment I learn in. There is always time to relax, and there is always time to work. It's a "laid back" environment that allows me freedom to do what I need to do to get my school work done, and it also allows me the time I need to rest when I feel overwhelmed.

  5. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    The only person I say that should not attended this school is someone who does not love the Lord. This school is very indepth in the spiritual sense and the presence of the Lord is strong here. For someone who does not know Jesus they would probably not want to go to SAGU because of the Chapel service and the high regard for spiritual life here. Although there are people here who don't have a relationship with the Lord, and this is a good place to begin a relationship if they don't have one already.

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    The rigor of the curriculum here at Southwestern could definitely use a little boost. I like a challenge, and I think that the courses would be a lot harder if the teachers were no so helpful and engaging with their classes. Because of the small student body population, the teachers have great office hours and are usually available to help whenever needed.
