Southwestern College joins SAGE

Southwestern College becomes the 204th school to join the SAGE program! Locate in Winfield Kansas (40 miles from Wichita), the Southwestern campus is made up of 20 buildings spread out on 82 acres. Southwestern College has its roots in the traditions of the Methodist circuit riders, whose love of education helped shape the educational landscape of the 19th century. In 1999 the school became the first in the region to issue laptop computers to all incoming freshmen. Now wireless network access is available in public areas on campus, and all offices and residence halls are wired for access.

How does Southwestern help students be successful? Successful students are engaged. In a 2005 national survey of student engagement, Southwestern students scored higher than its peer schools (and higher than bachelor’s-granting schools nation-wide) in active and collaborative learning, student-faculty interaction, and supportive campus environment.
