What I liked most about Southern Union was the professors were really helpful and down to earth. They also offered free tutoring in between classes or after classes very helpful! Helpful tip you must take a tour around your school especially if it's your first school. Find your classes before your first day instead of the day of you don't want be late on your first day!!


Overall Rating

I like the price. It is lower than my expected Pell Grant of 5,000 USD. I also like the courses offered. I also like the efforts and couteousness of the staff. It appears to be a great way for me to get a degree that I will be able to help lots of people with.
