My time as a soldier and student at SWU was very enjoyable. SWU is a very military friendly school that embraces it’s military students to succeed both in and out of the classroom. The faculty is very supportive and understanding. I never once had any issues when it came to having to miss class instruction due to training or military events. My professors always made sure that they were in a position to help me when I had to miss class. They made balancing out my military work with my school work a smooth experience. I will forever hold close to the memories and friendships made while being a student at SWU.
