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.

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.

Visit Campus

Spend a day as our guest and experience what makes SWU unique.

Most experiences can't be described in words and photos. We don't expect you to be convinced to attend Southern Wesleyan University without experiencing it for yourself. That is why we want you to experience campus life and the special community we have here at SWU. We offer several visit opportunities so you can get this chance to experience life on our campus.

These visit opportunities are for the traditional campus program on our main campus in Central, SC. Students looking for online and graduate programs, please click here.
