This so far has been my first semester at the University of the Southwest. I am so glad I started to go here. They offer me a program which is called NExT. new experienced teachers aids. This is where I am working at the school and it is going towards some of my credit hours. Every time I have had a question about the school it was quickly answered. Another thing I appreciate is that it is Christian based. I was completely discouraged with starting school and I believe I was directed towards this school. I was discouraged because I have a 4 year old daughter and it is stressful at times to work and go to school. I didn't know when I would have time for her. Thank God it has all worked out thus far greatly.!

I believe what makes University of the Southwest unique was the fact that everyone on campus is an athlete. Walking around from class to class, you know everyone; it makes it a whole lot easier to adapt because you have a lot of things in common.

The dorms are a bit filthy because the carpet is full of stains and the walls are dirty, the social atmosphere is fine but when it comes to quiet hours most everyone does not abide that rule. I believe the dorms cost is expensive and should be reduced down since we did get accepted to a private university.
