Southwestern Insight
Not only did Southwestern pioneer higher education in Texas, it continues to be on the leading edge of education today. Initiatives like Paidea, flipped classrooms, and inquiry-based learning are all examples of how Southwestern is leading the charge to prepare students, in all senses of the word, for the ever-changing world that awaits them after graduation.

College Search Advice
Think of it as a match to be made, rather than a prize to be won. Rather than asking if you can get in, ask yourself questions like: Is this school a good match for me? Would this school help me to achieve my potential? Just because you can gain admission to a school doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the right place for you.
