I chose South College for several reasons. South provides an excellent academic environment with accessible and exceptional professors, smaller classrooms and accelerated programs.

While I was looking at programs, South College’s DPT program had a unique atmosphere and was a program that was challenging the traditional brick and mortar DPT education model. It was something I wanted to be a part of, and I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to learn from the top PTs and educators in the country.
