Local Atmosphere: Our school has two museums which feature a plethora of sculptures and framed art. There is always something to do on campus. Our student-ran organisations and clubs keep the school lively. We recently built a new recreation center which conveniently features a gym and two basketball courts. At Southern we take pride in our sports and athletes. Our football team is the current SWAC champion.
