Don’t be afraid to try something different! Niya Warner Calderon has many creative sides. She draws, plays piano and trombone, and enjoys using art and music in approaches to her work every day. Originally from Lorain, Ohio, she moved to Columbia, South Carolina, to attend South University after earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Bowling Green State University.“Counseling is not just about talking,” she explains. “And I really think it’s about more creative questions than just ‘how are you feeling today?’ According to Niya, her work takes a lot of creativity in order to do the job effectively. “I love that helping people can come in so many varieties,” she beams. “And I appreciate having the freedom to take a theory I learned in school and do something creative with it at the office that I can see may help somebody.”Niya enjoyed a happy childhood in Ohio, “But once I started my counseling internship through South University, I had to learn how to help my clients who came from backgrounds that were not so great. It sounds simple, but I had to learn how to let my guard down to relate to others. Then, I finally realized that people are just people.”Niya has an incredible range of empathy for others, “Something inside just compels me to want to help others who are suffering, and help can come in many different forms too.” While working on her master’s degree in Professional Counseling at South University, Niya says she learned how to cultivate a client’s trust and credits the externships set up by the program as well as the “incomparable teacher support” of colleagues such as Dr. Sharon Williams and Jarrod Smith as factors that led her along an inventive and inspired path in her counseling practice.“My professors at South University placed a great deal of knowledge and resources at my fingertips,” she continues. “My classes were never just a presentation of material; they were a discourse of experience where the instructor could answer the question directly when I asked, ‘How did you do this?’”Niya currently works with at-risk teens at the Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands at the Ben Arnold Unit in Columbia, South Carolina. She plans to open her own counseling center some day.

South University has been named a 2015 Military Friendly® School by G.I. Jobs Magazine
SAVANNAH, Ga. – October 7, 2014 -- South University has been named a 2015 Military Friendly® School by G.I. Jobs Magazine, marking the fourth year in a row that the University has been awarded the designation.
The G.I. Jobs 2015 Military Friendly® School designation recognizes colleges, universities, and technical schools’ dedication to the success of military students in the classroom and after graduation.
“We are very proud to be recognized as an institution that strives to serve our members of the armed forces as they advance their education,” said South University Chancellor John T. South, III. “We provide dedicated teams to meet the unique needs of the military and veteran affiliated students to ensure they have a smooth transition from military to South University. We also extend this commitment to spouses because we understand that the spouse serves alongside the military member.”
South University provides assistance that includes waiving admission fees for military and veteran affiliated students, and the transfer of relevant course credits. South University also evaluates the Joint Service Transcript and awards credit for military training and work experience when appropriate. These measures are part of the pledge the University made when it signed to support the Principles of Excellence program established by President Obama in 2012.
South University also offers an Active Duty Scholarship for eligible service members who serve on active duty or in one of the Reserve components or the National Guard. The University is also proud to be a signatory of the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding and also recently signed on as participants in the Department of Education’s 8 Keys to Veterans’ Success program. South University is approved for benefits offered through the Department of Veterans Affairs and offers Yellow Ribbon program benefits to all eligible veterans.
