South University - Columbia Reviews

South University is a wonderful environment for adult students. They understand that along with trying to better our lives, we also may have children at home.
I've been with South University since 2010, very close to the time I delivered my daughter. I started with online classes and they were very understanding of any time that I missed due to my newborn. Since then, it has been a difficult run, but rewarding. Yes, the college is expensive and there are teachers/staff that are not so helpful, but what college isn't like that? South University has been the most helpful college I've been to (coming from 3 different colleges). I am about to start my second degree with South, and I am excited!
