I currently attend SUU and have loved the last couple years attending here. The class sizes are perfect, and it's so easy to have a relationship with your professor and academic advisor. There's so much one on one and great help whenever you need it. There are so many resources and you are taught the best way to use them. Great preparation for grad school!

Southern Utah University is one of the best schools I have visited, and because of this I chose to attend there. Not only do I feel that I am among some of the most steadfast, and smart students, but my professors have all been better than I could have even imagined. The class sizes are one of the main reasons I decided to enroll, with them being smaller (my largest class was 42 students) you are able to connect more with your professor and get to know everyone in your classes. School work might not be one of my more favorite things, but by being enrolled at SUU, my professors helped me want to learn, and challenged me in a positive way more than I thought they would! But of course not only are the classes awesome, but the student life in Cedar is wonderful! I got to attend some amazing and fun events with my friends that I am excited for this upcoming year! I would strongly suggest looking into this school, and if its a match for you and you apply, you wont regret it. I know I didn't!

I loved going to Southern Utah University for the year that I was there. I loved all of my teachers. All of my Professors were enthusiastic and hard-working, to ensure that my fellow classmates and I would get the best education possible. The course load was reasonable, perhaps not quite as hard as it could be. The campus was clean, and taken care of. The other students there were respectful and clean as well. I thought that the library was a very efficient tool for studying as well, to myself and to other students that I would see studying beside me. My professors were open-minded, and taught myself and others to be open-minded and to think critically. Sadly, SUU didn't have the major that I was interested in at the time, and so I decided to transfer to a different University to further my education.
