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.

Alumni of SWU are invited to give back to this Christian college community to further the mission of Christ.


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.

Catalog of Needs


During these days of tough economic times budgets, of necessity, have had to be trimmed, expenses reduced and much discipline and frugality exercised to live within our means.

With the help and cooperation of many in administration, faculty and staff SWU have lived within their means and balanced their operational budget, ending in the black for the past 16 years. This is especially significant in light of very tough economic times for the past three years

This in no way means that all or most of our needs have been met – much to the contrary.  Tight budgets and tough economic times have left most of our departments at SWU with many legitimate needs, which have been placed “on hold”.

In recent weeks we have addressed this important matter by creating what we are calling the “Catalog of Needs and Opportunities.”

This was created by asking all departments to identify important needs that will advance academics, outreach, community life and student learning this current academic year.

With the list of needs in printed form we are asking friends of SWU to partner with us in identifying one or more of these needs. We recognize that most of us individually are not equipped to meet most of the needs found in this catalog, but collectively if we all join forces with family, friends and co-workers, much can be accomplished.

So many times when needs are expressed we discover a colleague may be connected with a company that might like to supply a need, or a friend with inroads to matching funds or discounts.

Already a number of needs have been gifted.
