I am highly involved with the football program as a member of the Jaguar Marching Band and I love supporting our players. Game days are the most exciting events I've witnessed so far in college. The students always make a large showing and are incredibly enthusiastic about supporting our team. Our team, while not the best, is improving every year- especially for such a young program! Our marching band, even though I'm a bit biased, is one of the best in the region
Overall my experience at South was not bad. I attended the Mitchell College of Business, majoring in marketing, and enjoyed many of the classes offered. The university is very involved with their students and sends out a daily digest email each night for students to see what the upcoming events are. A big plus about this university is how they embrace diversity and international students, and how these students accept others as well. The big issue I had while attending was the food choices. There are only four fast food restaurants in the student center and the POD stations found around campus are very over priced for a small selection of snacks.
I'm not a member of any intramurals or sports, but I know many people who are a part of these. The football team is getting much better as years go by. The campus recreation center is state of the art with tons of fitness classes and a couple huge swimming pools. The marching band is really awesome, and there are scholarships for just becoming a member so you should consider it if you want to be in a great band!
