    South University - West Palm Beach Reviews

    I am a new student to South University. So far, It has been a pleasant experience. There has not been any moment where I did not feel as if I did not have the resources necessary to be successful. I transferred in from a bigger university and there I very much felt like a number. The small class sizes here make for an overall better learning experience. The only gripe I have is with the cost of Education.

    South Univeristy was a great school because class sizes were small and professors really lookout for their students. The professor were either former police officers or have backgrounds in the criminal justice career where they were able to share experiences and knowledge with their students.
    My experience so far has been enjoyable, I am currently a new student at the university, so I could not speak from prior experience. This will be my first semester and I am taking courses online. I am enjoying them so far, although the online format seems a bit overwhelming.
