We've been looking forward to this day all summer. There's nothing quite like the hustle and bustle of the first day of classes.

What are you most looking forward to this semester?

Three days of activities, orientations, introductions, and fun and games filled the #SWBTS and @TXBaptCollege official kickoff of the new academic year with New Student Orientation, August 10-12, as new students prepared for the new academic year.

Here at #SWBTS, we are committed to training even the smallest of Southwesterners. That starts with the Southwestern Music Academy through @SWBTSMusic.

You can register your child for one of the many music classes offered this semester at http://swbts.edu/sma.

What better way to beat the Texas heat than a friendly game of Slip-n-Slide Kickball?

We think it's safe to say this semester is going to be a good one!

As we begin the final day of New Student Orientation, we are so excited to see how the Lord uses each of these students during their time on Seminary Hill.
