I believed Southern Union State Community College is a wonderful place to either earn an associates degree or knock-out core classes at an affordable cost. The campus has clean and recently new or renovated buildings. The only complaint is the student life and social setting if you are an on campus resident. The town is extremely small and the closest town with a party scene is almost an hour away. Therefore, this school is perfect for someone who is solely focused on the academic aspect and loves a quiet setting.

Since my plan is to get a associates degree in nursing at Southern Union I really enjoy that the school has such a great program for cheaper, easier, and faster. Many hospitals have told me they prefer to take a nurse that went through the SU program vs. Auburn University because the program is that good. Their Health Science building is made to mimic an actual hospital, I was told if something huge happened to the city of Auburn or Opelika and the hospitals were full, they would bring patients to Southern Union. It really is amazing. I would probably change the scenery, I would like for it to be in a place where you could see more while you study or something of the sort. Overall I love the school.
So far, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time studying at Southern Union. My plan is to get an associate's degree here before transferring for my bachelors, but honestly I wish I didn't have to leave Southern Union. I love my teachers, and because I live in Valley, AL, I can sign up for classes at both the Opelika and Valley campus since they are not far from each other. This helps ensure that I can sign up for the class that I need. My experience at Southern Union has been amazing, and I'm proud to be able to attend this school.
