My opinions about Southwestern is that this college is very welcoming. Not only the community in the school is welcoming and very involving with activities, the community outside of the school is very welcoming and involving. When I first arrived at the college, it seemed like most of the freshman got the help they needed. I have a scholarship on playing tennis there, I did not know anyone within the community but when I stepped on the courts all of the team made me feel like I was part of a second family. I honestly believe there will everyone in the school that will be involved in a activity and not alone. The campus is honestly beautiful as well during sunsets are the best view. The clubs are very creative to, they have a hiking club, art club,blook clubs and green team. They even have interesting clubs like hammock clubs, where you are lying on a hammock for the whole time. Most sports and clubs will have study groups so no one will fall behind on grades, they will make sure you pass your class.

A great college with professors willing to work with you to ensure your success. So long as you pay attention, and ask for help, you can succeed here. The community is great, the food is awesome, and no big complaints about housing. Despite the penitentiary being nearby, the school is well-lit and very safe, with SC security only a call and 5min away.

I had been wanting to go to Southwestern since my freshman year of high school and the teachers welcomed me with open arms. Even with some teachers leaving, our Music Chair has had many candidates for the positions for the students observe and become a part of the decision since it is our education. There is so much student involvement and it is amazing

I came to this school to run Cross Country, and I thought it was going to be a great school from the few times I was on campus, but then I actually came here. The school is complete crap. I have to fight with financial aid to get my scholarships just so I can go here and they are no help what so ever and then I try to leave the school, and I had paid off my loans, and now they are telling me I still have loans to pay off. It is ridiculous. So Financial aid sucks. I have never seen the head woman even tho at the beginning of the year she said you could always come and get help from her, but every time I go in she is busy. They will try to impress you on the college visit with the food, but don't be fooled it is awful when people are not visiting. They also have you fill out a roommate match thing at the beginning of the year, so you get with someone like you, but don't be fooled; they will match you with just anyone. My roommate for the first semester was the complete opposite of me. She drank and smoked and was loud and obnoxious when I was trying to sleep. She brought people into the room constantly and never asked me if it was okay. Her boyfriend even stayed the night a couple of times which was a big no-no. She would come in from drinking and throw up for hours in the bathroom keeping me awake at night. Classes can be okay tho. Some teachers take the time to get to know you and help you if you struggle in there class, but others are just awful. I had an advisor in the history department, and he didn't even know my name or who I was when I went in to talk to him the second semester. I had talked to him many times before this. You would think that maybe he had a lot of kids to advise, but that was not the case he had three kids in his department and knew everyone but mine. I want to say the most helpful person on the whole campus was my cross country coach and to be honest; he was the only reason I stayed the whole year. If I could give southwestern a lower review, I would. Maybe a 0.001 out of 5. If you are rich and snobby and look down on those with less money you will fit right in here.

Southwestern College-Winfield FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Southwestern College-Winfield?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Southwestern College-Winfield is 92%. 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 _____.

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

    I would tell myself to get a job and save as much as possible. Another sore topic is I would make sure I took the advanced placement tests that I took the classes for just because the score results would have been sent and I wouldn't be having to have my junior year results sent up. The main thing is knowing what I want from softball and determining before I got here if I was going to play. That would have made the first few months alot less stressful and I would have stayed out of the Emergency Room and been a lot more secure in my own identity. It also would have been easier to let down my family if I had been able to quit before I went to play for a college.

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

    While I attended Southwestern College I thought that the worst thing was the city that it was located in, Winfield, KS. I would have preferred to live in a little bit larger town or city where there was more going on. The campus always had activities going on, but sometimes I wished that the community had more restaurants and events going on to get involved with. However, Wichita, KS was only forty-five minutes away, so if you felt like driving then you could always go there for more variety.

    When I went to school there not one individual felt out of place there is a little of something for everyone. The person that should not attend is one that is not concerned about their degree because the professors push for the best in each student and want everyone to do well. The college is in a small town but close to a large town so if the student wants to attend a school in a large town this would not be the school for them either.
