General Information About Southwestern University
As the first institution of higher learning in Texas, Southwestern University has a rich history grounded in the pioneering spirit of those who settled the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Our 1,300 students have a passion for intellectual and personal growth, enjoy small classes and stimulating interactions with our faculty of teacher-scholars who reflect our core values. Southwestern is a private, highly selective liberal arts institution encompassing the Brown College of Arts and Sciences and the Sarofim School of Fine Arts. Classroom learning is augmented by an environment that encourages participation in faculty-student research, athletics, intramural and recreational sports, and over 90 student organizations. Living-Learning Communities and the Paideia Program offer exceptional opportunities to fully integrate one's experiences in and out of the classroom.
