Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Southwestern Assemblies of God University Waxahachie Texas
Southwestern Assemblies of God University s undergraduate and postgraduate students get to enjoy a tree lined, naturally beautiful campus. The institution traces its origins back to 1927, with the formation of the Southwestern Bible School in Enid, Oklahoma. It later combined with two further bible schools and in 1943 as Southwestern Bible Institute relocated to its current setting in suburban Waxahachie, Texas.

This grand and attractive construction dates back to the early 20th century and today hosts conference halls, classrooms and the university s McCafferty Hall as well as faculty and admin offices.
