Strong Reputation & Rankings
Ranked the “Number One National Liberal Arts College in the State of Texas” and 5th overall in the state of Texas by US News and World Report, Southwestern has a reputation of being the best of the best. Although the University enjoys the benefits of generous donors and a good endowment, we still lag behind the four institutions ranked above us. Likewise, Southwestern’s name recognition and visibility are always in need of a boost. Your gift will provide that boost.
Alumni, parent and student gifts to the Southwestern Fund give the University an edge in national rankings, while also providing support for students and faculty. Your gift also helps our retention and graduation rates, enhances the natural beauty of our campus, and provides resources for marketing and visibility.
