SOUTHWESTERN CHRISTIAN COLLEGE is an accredited, historically black college that today is home to a diverse student body including African American, Hispanic, and international students. Dedicated to students’ academic and spiritual development, SWCC embraces them upon arrival to campus and takes care to get to know them personally and by name.
SWCC’s founders were motivated by the desire to prepare students for effective Christian living. The two-year liberal arts college offers classes in biblical studies, history, humanities, English, music, and other subjects. In addition to associate’s degrees, SWCC offers bachelor’s degrees in biblical and religious studies. The fine arts building houses a state-of-the-art recording studio that has launched some alumni into successful music careers. Some on-campus housing is available.
Despite its small size, SWCC offers a Greek system of national fraternities and sororities. Honor societies, clubs, and organizations include Circle K International and Phi Theta Kappa. The men’s and women’s basketball and track and field teams compete in Region V of the National Junior College Athletic Association. Other sports favorites include the dynamic women’s volleyball team.
SWCC is located in Terrell, a former railroad depot town that once linked East Texas to California. The Round House, an octagonal residence built in the 1800s by Terrell’s founder, is situated on the campus and is now a state and national historic landmark. Students benefit from SWCC’s proximity to three of the best fishing lakes in the state, and the campus is just 20 miles from Dallas’s museums, restaurants, and nightlife.
