A community that has your back

I have received multiple scholarships that enabled me to attend Southwestern and that means I have a lot of support from the University’s alumni and friends too.

I can’t adequately put into words how much I love this school and my teachers. I cannot wait to graduate and get a job so that I too can give back to this institution that has helped me so much.
