Southern Virginia University Reviews
Southern Virginia is a great school that enables you to meet many people and get to know them personally because of its small class sizes. Professors are more than happy to help students with questions about assignments, tests, and school in general. Because the class sizes are few, you are able to get to know your professors on a personal level and it makes the classes more enjoyable. If your looking for a school that has good moral values and a friendly environment, Southern Virginia University is perfect!
SVU is a great University. It’s small with a tight-nit community. The classes available are great, and the professors here are super nice. Although many people love small universities, I feel that SVU’s main issues come from being so small. There isn’t much to do in town, it’s difficult to not have a car since most things to do are driving distance but not walking distance, and there just aren’t as many classes available as I would like. However, SVU does plan on expanding within the next two years or so, as does the town it is in. This should solve most of these problems, I assume. And even with these issues, my overall experience at SVU has been pretty great.
Overall, my experience with Southern Virginia University was rewarding, and although difficult, was a good learning experience. The professors were fantastic and actually cared about you as an individual, and your scholastic needs. To let the students have a more individualized learning experience the class sizes tended to be small. The surrounding scenery and architecture of the building were beautiful, though the latter is in great need of repair. For those who had dietary restrictions, the food was sub-par. It is generally not a party or drug school, and the students tended to be ignorant of those who were not of the same religion.
