About Southwestern University

For 175 years, Southwestern University has been engaging minds and transforming lives.

Committed to “Fostering a liberal arts community whose values and actions encourage contributions toward the well-being of humanity,” Southwestern is unique in many ways.

Our location in the heart of Central Texas allows our 1,528 students to enjoy the warm, small-town feel of historic Georgetown as well as the close proximity of Austin with its vibrant, innovative and creative culture.

Southwestern’s residential campus offers a true liberal arts education with small classes and numerous collaborative undergraduate research opportunities. Outside the classroom, students are civically engaged and volunteer in the community at more than twice the national average! Half of all students study abroad and most take advantage of leadership, service and activism opportunities in Southwestern’s 90+ student organizations. Our scholar-athletes compete on one of 20 NCAA Division III varsity teams. Go Pirates!

More than half of all Southwestern students complete at least one internship experience and 91 percent have found employment or have been accepted to graduate/professional school within 10 months of graduation. All of this (and more!) combine to create a lifelong Southwestern Experience.

Campus information

Southwestern University, a private, four-year, undergraduate, Liberal Arts College offers the following facilities:

  • Athletics- The athletics team at Southwestern College is a member of the NCAA Division III competition in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, and track and field for men and women; men’s baseball and lacrosse, and women’s softball and volleyball. This provides the necessary opportunity to students to thrive in academic as well as non – academic activities.
  • Living- To assist in the transition to college and to enhance academic success, all new students who have fewer than four full semesters in college are required to live on-campus. While upper class students may live on- or off-campus after their second year, the fact that 83% of our enrolled students live on-campus shows that most students choose to remain on-campus, even after their second year.
  • Student Organizations - SU offers over 90 registered organizations on campus which gives numerous opportunities for involvement outside the classroom. These organizations represent interests that range from student legislation to social activism, literary publications to Greek Life.
  • Safety and Security - Security and safety are very important at Southwestern University, and the Police Department has state certified police officers who patrol the campus 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, year-round to ensure the safety of the University community.
  • Dining Services – SU offers great meal plans to the students according to their budget. The catering service strives at producing quality food products and services to ensure the satisfaction of the SU community.
