South University - Richmond Reviews
What I like about South University, is that the staff and the professors want to see the students succeed in the career that they are pursuing. I haven’t felt like I’m a inconvenience to them and that means the world to me. Unlike any other colleges or universities that I’ve been to or seen, they actually have an appreciation week for their students, and that’s honestly needed because college students are overly stressed out at times. One improvement that South University could improve on, is how certain programs are laid out, such as certain information is not always clear or presented. South University is a great school, and I recommend anyone who are looking to further their education to apply there.
I had a great experience as a graduate student. Recently graduated with my masters in physician assistant studies. I feel prepared for the boards and am excited to start my career. Thank you South University!
I feel that taking courses at South University are directly preparing me for my future career in the Health field. The staff is friendly, helpful and always willing to speak with you. I can not comment on the return on investment as I am only in my second quarter of prerequisites while I am continuing to work full time. The class times are at reasonable times and with a flexible work schedule I am able to make this work. I feel that the professors that I have want their students to succeed and work with you on any questions or concerns you may have. The location isn't too bad despite being located in busy Short Pump. The parking is a little difficult at times, but totally manageable. Overall I feel this institution is doing a good job with its students.
