"The program at SLU was crucial in my understanding of what it takes to become a leader on today's schools. The faculty was knowledgeable and always willing to help. My learning was important to each faculty member and I felt as though they each invested themselves in my education. I would recommend the program to anyone who is interested in a close-knit high quality education."

"The faculty members are usually wonderful and willing to help. The lack of wireless internet on the campus somewhat limits research capabilities."

"Southeastern's Counselor Education Program has outstanding instructors. They truly care about students' success and are passionate about the field. They have a sincere desire to help students progress through the program to develop into exceptional future professional counselors. The course materials are highly relevant. I really enjoyed reading from my textbook and learning as much as I could about the profession. The workload in this program is challenging yet manageable and helps to instill a desire to learn more, do more, and be more as a counselor in training. Tuition for this program is reasonable and there are numerous opportunities for graduate assistant positions to help pay for school. Our school uses a text-book rental system where students only pay one small fee to rent their textbooks from the school every semester instead of buying them. This is a tremendous help with saving money as a full-time student. The campus is relatively small, and it only takes about 15 minutes to go from one side of campus all the way to the other if needed. Also, the small size allows for low student-to faculty ratios and helps foster great relationships among students and instructors. We have the highest scores in the nation for the Comprehensive exam required for certification and licensing. I truly believe that I am receiving a high-quality education to prepare me for a career in professional counseling."

"Southeastern's Counselor Education Program is one of the best in the nation. We have a low student-faculty ratio and students have the opportunity to develop close bonds with one another through the program. Course materials are extremely relevant, and the course work required is both challenging and interesting. I have great confidence that this program is preparing me for my future career and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to live and learn here. We have wonderful faculty members that truly care about students' success, and are passionate about shaping the top future counselors of tomorrow."

"The Progam is great due to the small scale of the university. It allows for a better one on one feel when working with advisors and professors. The major cons don't revolve around the somewhat small town atmosphere and the slight difficulty of getting around town and out town to do various tasks."

"Fantastic financial aid opportunities, and a very manageable work load. However, they do not have very good access to technology, and the budget is terrible."

"The Applied Sociology program is great.The graduate staff are very helpful and instructive. They are also accommodating to students with full time jobs. I am not sure about career support as I have not finished the program just yet."

"The campus completely shuts down on the weekends, leaving much to be desired socially for a student who is out of state. However, academically, the class sizes are very intimate, I know every professor in the program, and while challenging the classes are not terribly difficult or stressful."
