How much a student likes Southwestern depends entirely on the personality and upbringing of the individual student. For many, Southwestern is a collegiate paradise. The school feels safe, close-knit, and supportive. This is particularly true for those students that come from other small Texan towns similar to Georgetown. To others, the school feels constricting, bland, and homogenous. If you would rather live in a relaxed, affluent, (though academically rigorous) environment instead of one that regularly pushes your comfort-zone boundaries, you may very well be the ideal Southwestern student. There are very few students who are in the middle about their feelings towards Southwestern; they either love it or hate it. Many of those that dislike Southwestern came in with poor attitudes, often because Southwestern was not their first choice. However, as the popularity and prestige of Southwestern grows, so does the number of students coming here because it's where they want to be.

Essentially, Southwestern provides top-notch and unique educational opportunities for its students. Some students take advantage of study abroad and internship opportunities, others do not. Some students take advantage of the thriving social and Greek scene, others do not. Because Southwestern tends to be isolated, it takes effort on your part to go out and find things to do, like driving to Austin or exploring what small things Georgetown has to offer-none of these things will just fall into your lap. The same goes for the school itself; to get the most out of your time at Southwestern, you have to be prepared to make the school work for you. If you invest lots of energy and work in Southwestern, it's bound to return the favor tenfold.
