Professors and Staff are extremely helpful. For students who enjoy a smaller classroom setting and a more personal relationship with their professors and not teachers assistants, SCU is a perfect environment. All of my professors and then some know me by my first name and treat me with respect and understanding. SCU is a Christian University and provides fantastic Bible classes with very impressive and knowledgeable professors. Being a smaller university, about 500+ students, getting in touch and connecting with all faculty and staff is much easier.
There are many work-study programs that are very flexible with the students schedule.
The workload I would say is about average depending on the amount of hours you are enrolled in, and Professors are very helpful and understanding of students schedules due to the more personal relationship that is available.
I am currently a part of an AMAZING Internship, and there are others, called Victory School of Leadership where I will get my degree in three years in Christian Leadership and learn hands-on ministry at the local Victory Church.
The opportunities are endless if you are determined and serious about finding them.

The opportunity to get help, and be successful is amazing at SCU. Due to the smaller university environment, students are more capable of accessing help from Professors, who are wonderful, Christian, hard-working teachers. They take extra care into ensuring success for every student and are all passionate about what they do. There are chapel services that provide GREAT opportunity for students to get involved in ministry and in worship, and the effort that is made by the instructors is fantastic. I strongly believe in the Academics here at Southwestern.

SCU is very well located. For quick and convenient, there is a gas station that is less than a block away, just right across the street. There are tons of fast food options for affordable and quick options, and a short drive to the city can provide you with endless options and a great environment to enjoy the downtown area and see what Oklahoma City is all about.

The policy at SCU makes it a great environment concerning the use of drugs and alcohol. There are consequences that effectively keep drugs and alcohol of campus. There are of course students that make poor decisions and push limits, but for the most part, the regulations and policies are very much a part of campus life. Not in a way that is overbearing. In a way that is respectable and gives a feeling of security. Due to the curfew, that is absolutely reasonable, students must be back in their dorms by curfew. Each room is checked at the time of curfew, which for some is annoying, but for those who understand, there is a feeling of protection and security. Use of drugs and alcohol is never visible on campus.

I personally do not have an apartment and cannot afford one at this point in time. I am playing basketball and trying to keep up with school. It would be pretty hard to juggle school, basketball, and a great job that could help me pay the bills each month. I have heard that the apartments by our school "Rockwell Plaza" are nice, good looking apartments. They are not a descent price if you were trying to get a roommate to share with you. However, the rooms are not that big and the rent is not too cheap. The location of the apartments are very convenient because they are not too far from the school. Students get to school within 5 min and that comes in handy. Being close to the school allows students to be able to get to class on time. Also most importantly, students are able to save gas! The apartments have a park and looks like a safe environment. I heard that the landlords are very friendly and will work with you when you explain to them your situation.

The school is really strict. There can't be any girls in the boys dorms or any boys in the girls dorms at all times. For all classes you get up to 10 absences, it doesn't matter if it is excused or not. 2 tardies = 1 absent. Dress code is strictly enforced and there will be consequences if not followed. Curfew is at 10 o'clock so if you want to study with a friend it has to be done early. If a student parks a little bit off of the yellow line in the parking spot to the side then they will be written up for a warning. Other than that the rest of the rules are common sense rules to abide by.

The atmosphere at Southwestern Christian University is very peaceful. We have a lot of students who are always in a happy, positive, mood. Our town in Bethany is also small. There are different Christian schools around so the majority of the students are Christians. There are always many extra curricular activities to do on campus such as inter mural sports. I play on the women's basketball team and we do a lot of volunteer work. This just shows for the simple fact that SCU cares about others and we are there to help others in there time of need. All of the students as well as the professors maintain a healthy life style. We all know how to behave and we are great with interacting with others. It always good to meet new people and build relationships with many new faces, that can last a lifetime.

Even though we are a small school, our athletics are a big thing! We have a lot of student/faculty support and school spirit and the teams train hard. The majority of our school is involved in athletics and it's fun yet challenging for us to become better. We have athletes from around the world and our teams are like a family.

The weather is pretty great most of the time and the sunsets are amazing. It can be a bit windy and chilly sometimes and we had a couple days this past year where school either got delayed or closed because of sleet or snow, but overall I enjoy the weather. When its cold or rainy it is not that bad because our campus is small so you don't have to be outside long.

There is a number of apartment complexes nearby and they vary on cost. Bryan Hill is the apartment complex closest to the school that a lot of students live at and I believe is the cheapest around. There are also some small houses around that you could rent if you can afford it with a friend or two. They aren't far from school and they are in a pretty good location.

The internship program is phenomenal. I love that I get college credit to intern at a church and gain experience for the rest of my life. I am in my senior year and plan to graduate in May 2014, knowing full well that I will be prepared to enter into my own ministry. This takes up a majority of my time but it is well worth it because I know that my work is not in vain.
College Senior 2013-07-22T14:33:51Z
I love the biblical studies program at SCU. I feel like the teachers are very knowledgeable of the subjects they are teaching and really care about the well-being of their students. The workload is pretty average for college students. With the semester outlined in the syllabus, it is easy to plan your schedule around exams and papers.

The last two years, I have been put in a room without a window to the outside. We have also had minor problems with mice and crickets. Though it is nice sharing a bathroom with only 1-2 other people, I would enjoy living in a place much nicer.

The community and atmosphere is awesome, we're like a family!

Student Council seems to run cool events, I do not attend most of them though due to work or other things.

The student recreation center is the best place for entertainment. The environment is fun, safe, and great place to meet people. The center has video games, table games, music and a tv. I won't have to leave campus.I can stay focused since I'm a freshman.

After touring the Campus of Southwestern Christian University, I feel confident that the school will have computers available for students to complete assignments. I also noticed student support in the lab I visited. I know most students will have their own computers, but the university is set up to provide computer labs if needed. The school is set up for student success.

The curfew at Southwestern is somewhat ridiculous! The Residential staff are strict about what time you are in your rooms. There is also a strict dress code that people can be written up about. And quiet hours are between 11pm-8am. You also have to attend chapel 23 times per semester or you will be put on a "spiritual life probation."
College Senior 2013-01-28T17:20:46Z
There are plenty of affordable apartment complexes nearby. The amenities are unbeatable and almost all fo them are within minutes of the campus as well as other conveniences like Target, WalMart, fast-food restaurants, and shopping malls.

There is a curfew at SCU. However, you can sign out whenever you need to if it is approved by your RA. If I want to stay out past 1 or 2 I will go stay at a friends house.

Very seldom do I have to worry about parking. I almost always am able to park in the same spot every day. The only time I worry about parking is when there is a big event.

Health & Safety:
Southwestern Christian University provides a safe environment for it's students. The students are held to a high standard, and therefore theft and bad pranks are almost unheard of. There are always security guards on duty and I have never felt unsafe on campus.

There are a lot of apartments nearby and some are pretty cheap. My ex roommate found a 3 bedroom apartment for 500 a month. There are also some really expensive apartments for those with more money.

Its a Christian University and what sets this school about is the student outreaches. This isn't done by the school itself but by certain individuals who are on fire for Christ. Theres a lot of feeding and prayer for the homeless and we provide clothing as well. This school really helps people to build a relationship with God.
College Junior 2012-11-13T20:28:16Z
Its not very noticeable but every once in a while there will be students smoking marijuana in a dorm room and they try to cover it up with lots of air freshener. The only way I knew about this was the fact that it was my suite mates. Now one else even knew there was any drugs on campus. Its usually just about 2 or 3 guys on campus and smoking marijuana is the only drug scence at this college.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
