Christian atmosphere is most important. Staff and students are friendly and caring.

SWAU is one of the many few "typical" Christian universities. I never saw alcohol or drug usage, and I never witnessed any peer pressure. The students become family to each other - and, naturally, because of the business with school, emphasis on social gatherings, and Christian atmosphere, most students are too busy to break any drug or alcohol policy. It is a pretty safe environment.

SWAU is an active campus. If students do not have their nose stuck in books at the three-story library, then they are engaging in some campus activity.
The student center is a place for mental relaxation and small social gatherings - a great student hangout spot. The Student Association (SA) usually runs and coordinates all the activities that go on. During the beginning of the year, all the students participate in two main events: "Handshake" and "Watermelon Feed." Both of those events give new and current students the opportunity to personally meet faculty members and make new friends. The SA usually has activities every weekend that involve leaving campus to go: bowling, visit the Dallas Cowboys stadium, botanical gardens in Dallas, Six Flags, etc.
In addition to the SA activities, the Spiritual Life & Department also holds activities. These activities usually relate to community service, yearly prayer weeks, and spiritual camping trips.

The campus is culturally diverse amongst both students and faculty. While the number of available programs are somewhat limited, the quality of the professors compensates for the lack of a variety of M.A. programs; the professors welcome new insights, and are student-friendly, often helping them increase self-confidence in their desired major. A small university in a small town, SWAU proves a positive learning environment that many students adopt as a second home. Here, education thrives as well as the well-being of students themselves.

They are pretty lenient towards having your own class and schedule.

Athletic department needs to have a lot of changes gym-wise and the communication between the coaches and the players.

There really is no night life. The school is a very conservative Christian school in a very small town.
College Junior 2013-08-22T19:56:27Z
It is a vey small town and there are not many options nearby; however, what is close by is good.

Computers are a little dated, but they are always available or use and get the job done.

Don't let the small size of the university fool you. The academics are excellent. 100% of graduates in the math, education, computer science, and other fields are either employed or in grad school. The advantage of having a small university is that you can befriend the professors, and they help you with your assignments and understanding the material. Yes, the workload is hard, but the family atmosphere with your classmates and professors makes up for that.

As a music major, one of the requirements is to perform in recitals each semester. However, recitals are not the only performance opportunities around. Because of how closely tied the university is to the church, music majors will perform in church more often than they do in department sponsored recitals and concerts. I am a violin performance major, and I am very grateful for the many performance opportunities that are available to me which are preparing me for a career in the professional music field.

Because of the small size of the student body, it is possible to get to know the entire campus. Your professors know you by name, and you can make acquaintances and friends with your classmates. What's more, is that the professors have office hours! This family feeling is one that is difficult to find at many universities.

The student center was recently renovated, and is now the hub of student recreation. The gymnasium's floor was redone this summer. There's plenty of Student Association-sponsored activities basically every weekend, and the campus is close enough to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to drive there.

Because of the Adventist campus, drugs and alcohol are virtually non-existent.
College Sophomore 2013-08-08T00:24:39Z
This school is very accepting it's students come from all over the world! although it does seem to be a small university the school, staff and it's students seem to be very loving and freindly
College Sophomore 2013-08-08T00:09:28Z
since every class is so close you really don't need to worry about driving to class unless you live in a different area then in that case there are parking spaces in front of the library, near the admin building, near the communication building, and also around the campus.

I'm not sure about public transportation since the university is located in a small city, i'm not sure if public transportation is even necessary. They have dorms and the classes are close so a bike would be a better choice to use for transportation.

Although I love the nursing department at my school, I wish that they would try harder to keep students in the program. When I began, we had over 60 students and now we have a little over 30. The reason we lost so many students was because their grades weren't good enough but I wish there were more tutoring options and more one on one time with professors to go over things students may be struggling with. On a positive note, the fact that the program is so competitive makes you try harder to stay in.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
