Southwestern Adventist University

Keene, Texas

THE SPIRIT OF TEXAS inspired Southwestern Adventist University (SWAU) to take an act of faith and open its doors. For more than 130 years, SWAU has boldly integrated that faith into every aspect of learning and on campus.

The Christian worldview at SWAU frames the academic experience, without closing it in. Students are introduced to broad perspectives and ideas and are challenged to explore how faith influences living out Christ’s love in the complex world.

SWAU is committed to providing students with an exceptional education that emphasizes academic excellence. Dedicated faculty members are experts in their fields and passionate about teaching and mentoring. The curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in their field of study while fostering critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. Small class sizes, state-of-the-art facilities, and hands-on learning opportunities provide students with an unparalleled educational experience.

Healthy living programs include wellness workshops, while the vibrant campus community is filled with opportunities to make new friends, explore new interests, and create lasting memories. SWAU offers a wide range of events throughout the year, such as concerts, comedy nights, and festivals that provide fun and engaging social experiences.
