Following Southwestern Assemblies of God University's (SAGU) 107th Commencement in May, students departed for summer break. However, the SAGU campus remains a hub of activity and has become a North Texas hot spot for camps and conventions. In total, SAGU will host 5,055 campers and an estimated 6,000-plus visitors by the end of July, beating the previous years total of 4,560 campers.

This summer, SAGU plays host to North Texas Fine Arts Festival, Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders, Assemblies of God North Texas District Council, Camp U, Encounter God's Presence Camp, Royal Family Kids Camp, Art-Life Camp, SAGU Soccer Day Camp, Christian Cheerleaders of America, 220 Camp, Nike Football/Baseball Camp, SAGU Basketball Camp, FC Dallas Youth Soccer Camp, SAGU Basketball Day Camp, Church of God of Prophecy District Council and SAGU Volleyball Day Camp.

SAGU was voted #37 in The 50 Most Beautiful Christian College & University Campuses in the World by Christian Universities Online. The campus blends the nobility of the Farmer Administration Building, a registered historic landmark constructed in 1901, with expansive new amenities in the additions of the Garrison Wellness Center (GWC) and Hagee Communication Center (HCC).

The GWC has become a key resource for athletic camps. The 32,000-square-foot building provides an indoor basketball court, track, junior Olympic-style pool, racquetball courts, weights and cardio equipment.

The HCC, which opened in Fall 2013, created even broader resources for small and large events. The upscale performing arts center features a state-of-the-art recording studio, a television studio, black box theatre and a 600-seat performing arts auditorium.
