my experience attending southern university A&M i would have to say it was a life changing experience. the first day i arrived on campus i knew southern was for me. the staff and student environment was so comforting i knew i couldn't go anywhere else. although southern does have many flaws. it is also a great place to enhance your intelligence while maturing in life. while academics isn't the only hurdle you will face wile attending southern. you can't forget about the great experiences you will have as a jaguar.

Although I have just finished the enrolling process, from what I have seen so far, I believe Southern University genuinely care about their students having a successful academic carreer. Thus, I feel confident that Southern University with help achieve my goal or at the very least acquire the skills necessary to do well in my intended career field.
