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.

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.

South College was the only place that felt like home after I went and visited the campus and met with the staff. They were super hands on and involved before and after my application process. The medical equipment was far better than other colleges that I had visited. I loved everything that the campus had to offer and I was so excited (and still am) to be a student here.
