(Edited by Angela Mangueira) On our campus, jewelry is a debate that has been going on for many years and nobody is brave enough to debate about it. When I arrived to Southwestern, jewelry was not allowed because it was inconsistent with Seventh-day Adventist standards. However, even though jewelry is not allowed, students still wear it and I believe that this policy is not being enforced, as it should. As Christians we are called to be separate from the world. My question to people is … [Read more...]

(Edited by Jaime Baldwin) Southwestern Adventist University’s music department held its first student recital on Thursday night, Sept. 18. Southwestern is made up of hundreds of students who each have a story to tell. For some, music allows them to share their story. A few years ago at a high school recital, Brainard Mwansa, senior finance and accounting major, experienced a moment that changed his life. After taking years of piano lessons and competitions, somewhere along the way he lost … [Read more...]

A Creative College Experience

Matthew House, senior communication major at Southwestern, designs his own college experience. Since childhood, he taught himself video production and graphic design skills.
