ESTABLISHED IN 1927, Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) is a Christian institution located in Waxahachie that remains committed to Bible-based education. More than 70 academic programs are offered through SAGU’s colleges of Bible and church ministries, business and education, and music and communication arts. Programs added in the last 10 years include criminal justice, social work, digital media arts, and math education. Small class sizes and a student-faculty ratio of 16:1 create a personal, comfortable learning environment.
SAGU is strong both academically and biblically. The education department demonstrates a 100 percent state-certification passing rate. Digital media arts students have produced four award-winning films that received national airtime. Another student film project sent student journalists to dozens of countries to produce a feature-length documentary. And SAGU is one of only 139 schools in the world to reach All-Steinway status.
The 78-acre campus has five residence halls, including two built within the last five years. A two-story wellness center opened in 2010, and the state-of-the-art Hagee Communication Center was unveiled in 2013.
Waxahachie’s historic downtown district is full of shops and restaurants, and many students travel the short distance to Dallas for sporting and arts events. In a recent survey, 92 percent of students expressed a “great sense of connection and community at SAGU,” and 94 percent of graduating seniors said that they would "recommend the university to prospective students."
