Southwest students come from many locations and walks of life. The student body normally consists of both single students as well as those who are married and have children. Enrollees include students just beginning their college career, as well as students who are turning to ministry as a career change. Adding to the diversity, the student body typically includes students from a number of different states and foreign countries. The opportunities for men and women to develop relationships with other Christian students abounds, and the quality of these relationships develops over the course of study at Southwest. Our graduating students often comment upon the lasting and lifetime relationships that they have formed as a result of studying the Bible on a daily basis with their peers. Southwest offers an environment like no other to form such relationships.
