What is your overall opinion of this school?

Go for the good! That is what I have to say about Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Sure, it is not a huge university where you could get lost in the shuffle. It is the home away from home that will embrace you for who you are. Everyone at SAGU is geared towards helping you develop mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. So what are you waiting for?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SAGU is a pretty great school! I love the atmosphere. There's friendly people everywhere! I just feel at home when I'm at school. I'm just a freshman right now but I do intend on attending SAGU all 4 years! I can't wait to see what the world has to offer me after I'm done with college. And I'll definitely be involved with SAGU even after I graduate!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love Southwestern Assemblies of God University. For me as a believer in Christ, this is one of a few schools that are truly authentic about their faith. The school is small, making the class size really easy for me to learn and to also connect with almost everyone on campus. The housing is also accessible and great. Athletics are also great to watch and play for also. Overall, i love this school and I am happy I made the right choice.

Southwestern Assemblies of God University, Un-Godly

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)

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This is a smaller university so you get a lot of individualized attention. Even though it is small it offers several degree plans and is still expanding. Very good media department with up to date equipment to learn with. You will get a strong religious education while getting your degree. They want you to succeed.

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

Knowing what I know now, after spending two and a half years in college, I would like to tell my former high school senior self to learn to study. College is not the same as high school. You do not always have someone reminding you to turn something in or make sure you get this done. Procrastination does not always work out so well when you have a big load. In the past few years of college, I have learned to rely on myself to plan on when to study and when assignments are due. I am working full time to pay for college so time management is extremely important. I would also tell myself to save as much money as possible for college. College is not free and in fact can be rather expensive. Apply for as many scholarships as possible. Even the small amounts add up and it's free money. Taking your basic classes at a junior college or community college can save you thousands of dollars before you transfer to a university. The last thing I would add is, stay focused on your education. Because it is not free, don't waste it!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Start applying for scholarships early and often. There are scholarships available from elementary on. A lot of small scholarships add up too.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Southwestern Assemblies of God University(SAGU) is a friendly, church based, goal oriented, and great school. The professors care so much for their students and want the best education for us. Students at this campus are generally all friendly and open to one another. I love this school.

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

College is fun but it takes more than just showing up to class. You have to be goal oriented and manage your time wisely. Interact with different students and be friendly. Take each course serioulsy and don't ditch! Get close to your professors. Be in school activities and find yourself study partners. College comes with responsabilities.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

We don't have our won football or soccer stadium.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

I am not sure that is the right word. There are students from all ways of life at SAGU. We have had students from all over the world attend SAGU. There are rich and poor students.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

I would say that SMA (The mission's department) plays a big role at SAGU. They have different branches that all connect to the head office. The jazz band, choir, and chorale are all pretty popular. As a school, they do try and have plenty of activities for the students.

Describe the students at your school.

The students on campus are like every day people. We have great individuals that are very musically educated! Our sports teams are not too bad. This is a place that you can make friends that will last you a life time!

What are the academics like at your school?

We have bachelor degrees and masters. Most of our professors have a masters or doctors degree. They all try and take the time to work with students one-on-one. They have many degrees, but at the same time they don't have some of the more common degrees, such as, nursing. It's a full credited school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you're looking for a school that will feed your mind, heart and spirit, SAGU is the place for you! Academically, I believe that the course load and overall rigor of the school could be greater, but the abundance in spiritual intensity makes the costly and simple courses worth it all.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The stereotype is pretty common: If you're not here for a church-related degree, then you are either here for business or athletics. To some degree, the stereotype is accurate, but not entirely.

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.

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

Always be careful of who you associate yourself with. Before people know you they will make assumptions about you, it may not be right but it is going to happen so by careful. The people that you meet in college are going to most likely be with you for a lifetime especially the ones that are going into the same line of business as you, do not make enemies. These people could show up later on in life and if you made enemies with them back in college then it will still stick with you in your forties. Make sure not to associate with the ones who everyone knows is bad news, these people are not meant to be in your life anyways. If those relationships are not helping you then there is no reason to keep it going. That may seem harsh and you do not want to make enemies but you also have to realize that this is the real world now. These are not petty high school relationships but they are life time relationships, choose them wisely.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known about those sports players or people in general that were not going to be serious about their relationship with God. Also, another big thing that I wish I knew about was that people always take something small and blow it out of portion. I have lost relationships and friendships because they take something small like having a meal together and ask you if you are getting married. I would have been more careful if I had known.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

This school is a christian university and only people that are christians are suppose to be accepted but that is not always the case. Especially sports players fall under that category. The school sometimes sells out for the sports players and accept them into the school and give them scholarships because sports bring in the money, those scholarships should be going to the students that are actually serious about coming here.
