Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives

Student Life

Academics are our highest priority, it’s true. But we’re not all about textbooks and research labs. There’s plenty to do outside the classroom! From an annual music festival to renowned lecturers to Opera Theatre; Zumba class to Ultimate Frisbee games to Thursday Chapel; Greek life to varsity athletics to community outreach, there’s something for everyone at Southwestern. Follow Student Life happenings with our Pirate Life Facebook Page.
