Success at South College

Eric Lee Miller - South College Student Success Story

I like South College because of the other students and the teachers that go out of their way to make sure you are good. The administration seems to really care. That’s what I like about South College – we are family.

- Eric Lee Miller, Associate of Science in Business Administration
Adam Hatcher

I went to college originally straight out of high school with the intent of majoring in musical performance with a concentration in theoretical studies. I was not prepared to for college at that point, so I decided to gain some experience and maturity by joining the work force full-time. After working for 10 years, I felt it was time to try school again.

- Adam Hatcher, Bachelor of Business Administration

I considered dozens of schools with similar online programs, but South College was just so proactive and more helpful than the others. It was stress-free for me to enroll and get started. Also, being a military-friendly institution made it easier for me to use my Post 9/11* GI Bill® benefits with the Yellow Ribbon Program.
*Post 9/11 GI Bill® students are required to verify their enrollment each month.
