Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

Overall, I think the school has certains aspects that some students might like and not like. I do not like the fact that the English department is so small, yet I do like the fact that the business school is progressive. I have been attending SU for the past year and I personally don't think I am the proper fit. The school is very expensive and I do not feel as if I belong. Some people love the school, and are very happy to be there, however I am not one of those people.

I'm going to be a transfer student to Shenandoah University. I can't wait to be a student here and start my major as a Bachelor of Science Exercise Science. I've visted here a few times and I watched a couple girls soccer games. I really love the enviroment of the school!
