History Southwestern Christian College (SWCC) is a four-year, coeducational liberal arts institution affiliated with the Church of Christ. It was founded in 1949 as Southern Bible Institute in Fort Worth, Texas. The following year, the school moved to Terrell, Texas, where it occupied the former Texas Military College. SWCC strives to provide a wholesome environment for students, one that is conducive to the development of Christian character. Its primary purposes are to offer a well-rounded educational program that will motivate students to value academic excellence; to assist educational, culturally and/or economically disadvantaged students in making their transitions from high school to college; to assist students in preparation for varied vocations in life; and to help prepare future leaders of its church constituency. Among the 15 buildings located on campus is the octagonal Round House Site, one of 20 surviving round houses in the nation. SWCC also has a recently constructed fine arts building and a modern learning resources center that houses the library.
