Christian college students interact in Blue Hill Coffee, a student-run enterprise at SWU.

The faith-filled community at SWU is comprised of students, faculty and staff who are passionate about learning and growing, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Week of Giving 2020 is Week of Caring at Southern Wesleyan University! #SWUcares


Warriors at heart. Your campus experience may only last a few years, but your connection to Southern Wesleyan can last a lifetime. Stay connected to SWU through events, publications, and social media.

SWU provides a Christian college environment for fine arts engagement opportunities.

Whether you come for a campus visit, fine arts program, or athletic event, SWU seeks to provide educational and cultural opportunities not just to our campus community but to the greater community around us.

Housing Checklist

The college experience is about learning and growing, and we recognize not all of that goes on in the classroom. That is why Residence Life at Southern Wesleyan University focuses on fostering intentional community and holistic personal and social development in a Christ-centered environment.
