Southern Union State Community College Reviews
Southern union did a fantastic job preparing their teaching staff for the online transition. They were willing to assist students throughout the transition with a positive attitude. I am very proud to have attended SUSCC, and go bison!
Southern Union is a great place to start your higher education journey! The staff is super helpful, the professors/instructors are awesome, and it's an all around wholesome environment.
Due to the sudden conversion to online this past Spring, the overall experience was good. We finished the semester with all of the requirements being met. We incorporated using Zoom over google meets due to the screen sharing aspect. We are still using Zoom this Summer semester too. Only negative that we experienced with online last semester was a monitoring company for our HESI final. We will not be using them in the future and it was a quick fix to complete our course last semester.
