visit campus

Visiting the Southwest Baptist University campus is the best way to learn about SBU's academic programs, experience the close-knit campus community, and see what a day is like in the life of a Bearcat. During your visit, you will learn more about what SBU has to offer and meet our excellent faculty and staff. Schedule your visit today and find where you belong at SBU.

When I visited SBU, I felt the community and the bond between other students. I saw how easy it is to connect with other people here, which helped me make that final decision to become part of the Bearcat family.
