Southwest University Students

Dear Students,

The pandemic we are currently facing raises unforeseen challenges for our institution. Southwest University’s mission is to provide our students with a safe and healthy learning environment. To help mitigate some of the uncertainty, we have implemented heavy precautions on a daily basis. Along with increased safety measures, we have provided a COVID-19 handbook and action plan regarding the reopening of the campus. The return of residential classes are progressing in the forthcoming months, and specialty labs are currently being conducted.

 It is our duty to assure you and your families that the institution is carrying every precaution made necessary by the local and state government. Above all, we are committed to putting the health of our students, faculty, and staff before anything else.

We are immensely grateful for your continuous support and cooperation,

Benjamin Arriola

I am writing this email just to tell you about my experience here at Southwest University.  I am 32 years old and have over 7 yrs experience managing big companies.  I have had some of the most successful businessman in El Paso mentor me and train to be the head of companies, but I have never came across someone as brilliant and sharp as Dr Baird.

I’m pretty set in my ways but instead of just trying to get a degree, Dr B has changed me from being close minded to being open minded.  He just doesn’t teach the class he challenges how we think.  I feel for the first time in a long time I am able to look and approach things in a different manner than I know.  I just wanted to let you know that I don’t look at Southwest as just a degree now.  I feel myself evolving and turning into a better leader.  It would be nice to know that you are impacting students more than just a paper.

Instructors like Dr Baird are assets to the education system and should be recognized.  Thank you to your Southwest University team and look forward to continuing my journey with you guys.
