Our community-style dorm allows for 1 big bathroom on each floor. Hotel-style rooms include one bathroom in each room, set up much like a hotel.

Southwest Baptist University
There are lots of ways to enjoy college, receive the most financial aid, and grow spiritually, socially, academically, and so much more! My advice is to get out of your comfort zone and meet as many people as possible your first week on campus.

I really enjoy attending SBU. One disadvantage is having to attend a certain amount of chapels per semester, it is not as enjoyable if it is mandatory to attend. They do have lots of different ways to earn chapel credits which is nice

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Just be prepared for the college workload. However, most instructors are very kind and understanding and will work with students, especially during a family crisis

I love how much the professors care about their students! I have made lots of wonderful friends and had a great experience so far!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining facilities last year were pretty awful. However, we are supposed to be getting a new dining provider, so it should be a lot better this year!
