Why I SWU - Personal Enrichment

Why I SWU

Because NOW is MY time to shine.

Like many adults, you probably thought about going to college after high school but didn’t start, or didn’t finish, as a result of competing priorities. We understand. Life happens.

As adults, we often find ourselves in situations that require we up put others’ needs before our own. Strained finances, health concerns, family commitments or the need to care for loved ones can make going to school prohibitive for many young adults just starting out.

If you are here, you likely experienced a personal challenge or situation that prevented you from earning your degree in the past, but are ready to move forward. Your time to shine is now.

At Southern Wesleyan University, we understand that for many students earning a degree is about so much more than getting a higher paying job. It’s about gaining a sense of accomplishment, personal enrichment and taking the time to invest in yourself.

Like you, we believe that it’s never too late to learn, no matter how long it’s been. That’s why each of our degree programs are designed with working adults in mind, offer flexible class schedules and allow you to earn your degree online, at our own pace.


We’ve helped students just like Vanessa Miller gain the personal enrichment she sought from an education, all while working two jobs, starting her own business and raising five children. And we can help you too. Watch the video below to learn more about Vanessa’s story and why she chose to SWU.


We’ve also helped students just like Tim Prendergast earn a degree that builds on his strengths, while offering a renewed sense of purpose. Tim, an Army veteran with a passion for servant leadership, wanted to earn his master’s degree from a university that would honor his military education benefits and his faith. We helped Tim earn a degree that facilitated his transition into a job that holds deep, personal meaning. And we can help you too. Watch the video below to learn more about Tim’s story and why he chose SWU.
