Visit GSW

Southwestern is one of Georgia's best kept secrets and visiting our campus and meeting our students, faculty, and staff is truly the best way to let you See Yourself @ Southwestern. To view the campus, you may attend Southwestern's Preview Day or schedule a Personal Tour during the week.

Preview Day

Preview Day is a Saturday where you and your family, along with students from across the state, are our guests for the day. GSW students, professors, and staff are available to answer all your questions and give you the opportunity to "See Yourself @ Southwestern." Our upcoming Preview Days are:

Saturday · November 1, 2014
Saturday · January 31, 2015
Saturday · March 28, 2015

We begin taking reservations for preview days in August each year. You can sign up by calling 1-800-338-0082 or on the front page of our website at Look for "Sign up for Preview Day." Click here to learn more about Preview Day

Personal Tour

To schedule a Personal Tour for you and your family, you may call our Admissions office at 800-338-0082. Student leaders who are a part of our Zephyr Recruitment Team give tours by appointment Monday - Thursday. You will also be able to meet with an Admissions Counselor to have any admissions questions answered. We do ask for a week's advance notice to prepare for your visit.
