Student Foundation (STUFU)

STUFU Logo 2022Experience the difference and excitement of strengthening the Builder Family

Student Foundation serves as a programming board to create meaningful experiences for all builders from Southwestern College. Our mission is to enrich the collegiate experience by providing programs, services and involvement opportunities which promote unity, diversity and student development. Student Foundation programs are directed toward physical, spiritual, mental, educational, and social health of the students.

Student Foundation membership is made up of Southwestern College students and provides the bases for the organization. Members provide the insight to the student body that allows the group to coordinate effective events and programs for the campus.
