I am currently enrolled in the nursing program after having a particularly rough go at one of the local technical colleges. South university nursing program took me in and gave me a new perspective on college. They actually teach and care about you. I'm never intimidated to ask questions and the instructors are actually invested in your success instead of seeing you as another number.
I transfered from from Lander University. This is my third week at South, So far so good. I really enjoy the small class room setting. There ASC and library have been my hang out spot since day one. Another thing I like about south is your able to get more classes finished. They have four semester instead of two like most universities. There semesters consist of fall, winter, spring, and summer.
My opinion of south university is amazing. The school is a great school and I recommend it to anyone. The professors are always available and easy to work with. The campus is so safe that security guards are always walking around so there will not be any interruptions during class. Students get to together and work on projects and get the job done.

I have always asked myself what I would?ve told myself if I were to talk to myself as a high school senior. When I think about it, I will say two things; focus harder and do not give up your dreams. Surprisingly I believe my old self will tell me that that?s the plan. I have always been very focused and dead set on what I want for my life concerning my career and what I needed to do to get there. I understood that the journey will be difficult because the transition from high school to college can really make or break someone. I have gone through many ups and downs since going to college, and I believe it has only made me stronger. I don?t think I will change one thing that I have done since I graduated high school, because it has made me into who I am today.
South University is very involved in their students curriculum and personal lives outside of the classrooms, they want to get to know the student inside and out to help as much possible; instructors encouraged students to learn more because the instructors really show how determine they are to have successful students.
The class sizes are small so the professor know you by name and you get to know all your classmates quickly.
I sometimes feel they are not as supportive to the older students returning to school. I have made great sacrifices to come back to school. I am an unemployed full time student and there are minimal sources of financial assistance in the form of scholarships and grants for returning or students over 45 years of age.
A person that shouldn't attend this school is someone who has not matured enough in school and are not able to push thmeselves to self study. Someone who is not eager to learn and get real world experience from professors who want to share what they know.
There is absolutely no student that could feel out of place at South University. We have every type of person and all sorts of groups. We have Jocks, Geeks, the all about me types, and even Pegans. No matter what you are into I am sure there is a spot for you.
Every year around the holidays SUO has holiday contests, it's really to get the students involved and more aware of what SUO has to offer. You can win gift cards to Amazon and more. It's a really great way to meet people and get to know what our school has to offer,
Each professor is different, however I have never met one that seemed like they didn't have time for their students. They seem willing to truly want you to learn and get the most out of class.
I had some time off from work due to renovations and I called some schools to see when I could start and South University was so quick to help me get going. The wait was too long at some other schools, South University enabled me to make the most of my free time.
I go to school at South University Online, but you can still see the stereotypes exist even at an online university. There is a social media site, SUO's very own Connections, and the profile, like Facebook, shows you everything everyone wants you to see. You see the jocks; some go to a campus and online simultaneously. You definitely see the geeks, I think they rule SUO. They do extracurricular, smart people things like write for the paper and have a help page in every type of class for those not so gifted. Just because many schools are completely online doesn't mean there aren't cliques. Technology has come so far that we have the ability to do it all online, even be in a fraternity or sorority.
I have no comment here because I am satisfied with the academics at the school. I am also plan to go to law school and South University BS in Legal studies allows you to skip one year of laws school because it is pre law.
A focused and hard driven individual should attend South University. An individual that participates in studies, organizations, meetings and etc... An individual that approves of being in a smaller classroom versus a larger classes, making it easier to connect and to have a one on one relationship with the instructors. Last but not least, a compassionate individual should attend this University.
When I am discussing my school, South University, I describe it as very friendly. Everyone, from the person at the reception area, to admissions, to financial aide, to the teachers are so very positive and have great attitudes. It is a campus that you feel welcomed!
There isn't anything that is frustrating about my school. The admistration and professors are always available and eager to help. If you have any problems they will try their best to resolve it and make your experience at the school stress free.
