Life on Campus

Southwestern focuses on life, not just the life of the mind.

We educate students—in the tradition of the liberal arts—to think, analyze, solve, communicate, and create. This gives them the broad foundations to excel not just as professionals, but also as people.

Virtually every student highly recommended for medical school has been accepted. Our graduates enjoy high placement rates in dentistry, optometry, physical and occupational therapy, and veterinary medicine as well. Our teacher education placement rate of qualified graduates is 100 percent.

Your time at Southwestern College won't all be spent in the classroom. Our students rave about the friendships they've made while living and getting involved on campus. Whether you choose a dorm or other housing option (link to broadhurst/residencelife), you'll meet other new students and form lifelong connections.

Life at SC is all about options. We offer a wide range of dining options so even the pickiest eater can find delicious meals. Want to form new friendships? Try out one of our over 45 different campus organizations (link to activities page) , which range from pre-professional clubs to service organizations to special-interest groups like the Student Government Association. Whatever your interest, you can find an organization that fits you.

Our campus is full of energy and fun activities. Come join today.
