SUU is a fantastic school! My experience here has been a very positive one. My small class size, and amazing professors have made my learning personal and I have been able to get the help I need to be successful. The campus is beautiful and the student body are welcoming. I have loved me time here at SUU and am very excited for my future here.
Review Your College
I currently attend SUU and have loved the last couple years attending here. The class sizes are perfect, and it's so easy to have a relationship with your professor and academic advisor. There's so much one on one and great help whenever you need it. There are so many resources and you are taught the best way to use them. Great preparation for grad school!
My choice to attend Southern Utah University has proved to be my best decision thus far in my educational career. The campus is welcoming and not too large so is it easy to navigate. Each professor cares about the individual student, which is not always easy to find in college. The school's medical program and nursing program is incredible. They have an exceptionally high acceptance rate into medical schools, namely the programs at John Hopkins and the University of Utah. This university feels like a home, with welcoming students and faculty as well as a beautiful area. It is also surrounded by national parks and is near to Brianhead, so it fits well with outdoor personalities. I recommend this University to all who inquire about which college is best to attend.
