Amazing Options – I have just this semester transferred to Southern Virginia University, and have only just recently decided my major. I have not been able to take any art classes but from the research I have done and the people I have met I am definitely satisfied with what they have going here. All of the professors, not just for my profession, are extremely qualified and have made extensive trips into the field. Since they also work here on such a small campus, they also are dedicated to making individual connections with each student. It is amazing here!

Fantastic School. I'm a senior and I have loved the quality education I have received and the opportunity to participate in multiple meaningful extra-curriculars. I am a full-time student involved in the men's tennis team, student-athlete advisory committee, and part time work at the school doing actual work in the business world. The Professors are incredible. I literally texted 2 of my professors last week to ask for help on homework problems and they helped me. They actually care about you, your education, and your future opportunities. I would recommend it to anyone. Students are also nice, lots of LDS kids.

For Being So Small, We've Got Game! Our athletics are currently transferring from the NAIA division to Division III. But even though we are small, we take sports seriously! We have experienced, knowledgeable, qualified head coaches. This past season, our women's volleyball team got 3rd in Nationals, our men's and women's basketball teams made it to the second round, and our men's baseball team got 4th. So for being such a small school, we can put up a pretty big fight!
