University of South Alabama Graduate Reviews

11 reviews
I have been at South for 5.5 years. I am an international student who came in as a student-athlete, graduated undergrad, and I am currently in a Master's program.
South offers good, but not necessarily excellent academics, a beautiful campus, a relatively diverse student body, somewhat (but not terribly) limited dining options, limited parking spaces, proximity to the beach, cheap education, and a rapid rise in stature in, not only the Gulf Coast, but in Alabama and the South.
Highly recommended if you are a Gulf Coast resident looking for value for your money whilst still getting the full college experience.

There is great support from professors and staff, particularly in the nursing field. In studying for acute care nurse practitioner the faculty have been extremely supportive of my goals.
My experience as a USA Alumna and Graduate Student has been amazing. My experience as a college student has helped me to develop individually by deciding what field of study I want to pursue. While pursuing my B. A. in Communication with a minor in English, my academic performance soared because I was pursuing my passion in the field of Communication and English, and I enjoyed my courses. I discovered my passion for writing when I decided to have an English minor. My professors were very helpful and worked with me one-on-one to make sure that they did all they can to help me succeed. Now I am currently pursuing my M.F.A. with a primary concentration in Graphic Design and a secondary concentration in Printmaking. Living on campus has been a great experience for me because it helped me to develop my own sense of independence and freedom. Also, while living on campus I have free internet access, and it is convenient for me to go to school/work and attend campus activities.
