In 2001 Southwestern began a master planning project to enforce and strengthen the future of the University.
This master planning project included then need for new structures such as: parking, accessibility, new facilities, environmental issues and memorials. The master plan also included elements pertaining to non-structural issues including enrollment projections, security features, endowments, technology and investments.
This research and planning has brought Southwestern to a very exciting time in its history. New student growth over the past several years has prompted us to begin the Vital Vision Capital Campaign. The campaign will consist of four distinct phases which will allow Southwestern to reach its maximum potential on the eleven acre campus.
The first phase began at the end of 2003, with the opening of a new resident hall in January of 2004. The resident hall was completed at an overall cost of 1.2 million dollars and will house 56 students.
