Jessica PatelBachelor of Science, Healthcare ManagementSavannah CampusClass of 2009
When asked her favorite place in the world she’s traveled, 21-year-old South University student, Jessica Patel says, “Hands down – the area between Jaipur and Agra, India – just south of New Delhi. It’s so beautiful there, and it’s where the Taj Mahal is located.”
Her first vision of the solid marble mausoleum, built by the Emperor Shah Jahan for his wife left Jessica speechless. “The whole thing was built out of familial love. A man loved his wife so dearly that even in her death he wanted to protect her and honor her. That’s amazing.”
To Jessica, India and its beauty, however, are not limited just to architecture. Jessica values many aspects of her family’s heritage, and here in America, it’s her love for her family that stirs a vision of success in her.
“My interest in healthcare management came from within my family,” says Jessica, who was raised in Toronto but now resides with her family in Savannah, Georgia. “My parents have taught me to care about and for others, especially the elderly. It hurts me to see someone who has no help, and I’m driven to get my degree in healthcare so I can make a positive change in other people’s lives.”
Jessica’s parents have encouraged her to use her talents to the fullest. “My family was so happy when I started South University in healthcare management, my dad especially. He wants our friends and family to know that his daughter is studying at South University to be a hospital administrator.”
Jessica also knew what she wanted in her studies, a more intimate place to learn than at a large public university. “I was really seeking a more productive environment, and the possibility of one-on-one relationships with professors, and I’ve found it. At South University, I have a number of favorite teachers, and I simply feel like I belong here because I’m surrounded by kind, friendly people— and especially by professors who are helpful and accessible! I think I have really good role models for my work and how I want to see myself in the workplace someday.”
Jessica plans to earn her B.S. in Healthcare Management in December 2009. Her goal is to be working in hospital management as she graduates.
“I’m so thankful for my family’s support and can’t say enough how it’s helping me through college. I love the path I’m on, and I know it’s going to lead me not only to understanding myself better, but also to helping others navigate the road as well.”

National Coffee Day is September 29
SAVANNAH, Ga. – September 22, 2014 – As we prepare to celebrate National Coffee Day September 29th, South University faculty member Roseane Santos, Ph.D. is sharing five facts you should know about your coffee.
Santos is an Associate Professor at South University’s School of Pharmacy and has centered her research on the health benefits of coffee. She is co-author of the 2009 book An Unashamed Defense of Coffee: 101 Reasons to Drink Coffee without Guilt, and will moderate a workshop focused on the impact of coffee on human health at the International Summit on Clinical Pharmacy in San Francisco this December.
1. Turn Off the Tap
Water from the kitchen sink is not ideal for brewing coffee. Santos suggests using bottled or filtered water because the amount of minerals such as chlorine, heavy metals and calcium may alter the flavor of the coffee. Remember, water represents 98% of the cup of coffee.
2. Filter Out Fat
It might be surprising, but coffee contains fat. Santos says using a filter will help trap much of the fat and keep it out of your coffee mug.
3. Medium Roast Is Best
Hard-core coffee drinkers may love a very dark roast, but Santos says mild to medium is the best when you are looking to capitalize on all of the health benefits of coffee. Many of the components in coffee that provide health benefits are broken down by heat. So, a mild or medium roast will yield the most health benefits.
4. The Caffeine Kick
How you brew, what kind of water you use, and how long the beans were roasted won’t have any effect on the caffeine content of your coffee. Caffeine is one of the few components in coffee that is not thermo-sensitive, or affected by heat. If you are caffeine-sensitive, the only solution is decaf.
5. Have a Second Cup, and Third, and a Fourth
Santos says the latest research shows that drinking three to four cups of coffee a day is the best amount to help maximize its health benefits.
