Southwestern has been committed to “Fostering a liberal arts community whose values and actions encourage contributions toward the well-being of humanity” for more than 175 years.
Southwestern, Texas’ oldest university, has been devoted to teaching students to think, create and connect to make meaning and make a difference for more than 175 years.
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.
Southwestern is located in the heart of Central Texas. Its 1,515 students enjoy warm and sunny weather. The University is within walking distance to downtown Georgetown where students enjoy iconic restaurants, coffee shops, and exploring nearby parks and trails. The campus is also less than 30 minutes north of Austin, the “Live Music Capital of the World” – a booming city filled with year-round festivals and events that attract visitors from all over the world.
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! One-third of 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!
Two-thirds of all Southwestern students complete at least one internship experience and 92 percent have found employment or have been accepted to graduate/professional school within 10 months of graduation. All of this (and more!) combined creates a lifelong Southwestern Experience.
"Southwestern is a place and time of personal growth and joint endeavor. The first moment I walked onto this campus as a prospective student, I knew Southwestern was home. It was so real, so genuine." Katherine Tanner ’13
