Success At South College

Shawn Domm

I chose South College because it came highly recommended from mentors of mine, the faculty is second to none, and the program fits my ever-changing lifestyle. I also chose it because of the flexibility. My wife is still serving in the United States Air Force on Active Duty, and this means that we move when they tell us to move.

South College provided me with a quality, hands-on education while challenging me to meet my potential. The smaller class size made the one-on-one experience the most beneficial. South College showed me day-after-day that the continuing education and learning offered is unlimited no matter how experienced you may be.

One of the major reasons I chose South College was for the smaller class sizes. It allows more one-on-one time between students and professors, which enhances the learning experience for me.
