SIU was a great school close to home. The campus is very welcoming to students with plenty of housing and amenities. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

Graduation Year: 2001

Southern University was great. most of the struggles came from not having the habits pre-developed to flourish as an individual. they offer a center for basic skills that helped students prepare. they have good integrity in scholar driven infrastructure. By that i mean the majority of the teachers deliver, they have good technology support systems, they have traditional resources like a real library and institutions where you can solve dilemmas with people directly vs talking to machines. i believe they have good relationships with community colleges which give you better chances that your credits will transfer vs retaking curriculum. they have on campus organizations in place for some focuses so that you can get real life work-ethic and real life situations while simultaneously being taught in the field. its a real university too!! architecture, resource center, stores, work out facility, sports teams, art district, scholar society and functions held on campus. to be very specific they just need to provoke a stronger work hard play hard mentality to the ones who have not come instilled with those traits. on the other hand this is the great leap from being considered a teenager to being recognized as a capable adult. and adults don't like babysitting other adults. so that's my review. take up your purpose take up your banner and do what you will with the insight.

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2012

I liked my college a lot. I started off at university of Illinois but it was too big and not right for me. I loved the smaller size of siu and I loved the location.

Tell us about your college experience.

My school was a good fit for me because it allowed me to get a major and a minor in what I am interested in and set me up for success in my graduate school studies. Some areas lacked in the experience I wanted, but college can definitely be what you make of it!

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, but solely because I am getting my Master's degree. If I had only planned on using my Bachelor's, I would not be satisfied. If I could go back and choose, I would have focused more on an engineering, accounting, or science based degree.

What advice can you offer other students?

Be eager to seek out professional opportunities, but make sure you take plenty of time to socialize. These years may possibly lead you to the most valuable relationships of your life. Find the balance and become the person you WANT to be (not who others think you should be, or who you think they want you to be).

Tell us about your college experience.

My college experience was wonderful. Great instructors, great colleagues. However, I didn't take full advantage of the price ledges I had as a student and now I regret it.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, either psychology or computer science. That was my second choice. I enjoyed my psych program immensely.

What advice can you offer other students?

Take advantage of clubs and student organizations.
