Success stories

Outstanding Education for Remarkable Careers

We're committed to helping our graduates make an impact in their professional and personal lives. We applaud our alumni and the difference they make. Check out what some of our Columbia graduates have to say.

Heather Schuckmann 2009
Heather Schuckmann Grad Alumni
Class of '09
Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies

“When I left my military career, I had to refocus my goals for the future. My mom has always encouraged me that all things in life happen for a reason, and the hurdles are no reason to stop growing and learning. At South University, I've discovered more possibilities for using my talents in the future. The difference now is that my purpose here is not about passing a class or making a grade. My purpose is to make a difference by showing others what I know works in the world; that's why I love the practical teaching and learning environment at South. My professors don't just encourage me to try to operate outside of the real world, we learn, as students and professionals, how our experiences can affect real life changes in real circumstances.”

Steve Knafelc 2013
Steve Knafelc Grad Alumni
Class of '13
Master of Science in Criminal Justice

“All of my classes were conducted online, and with my work schedule at the sheriff's office this was the best move for me to make.”

Alicia Parler 2010
Alicia Parler Grad Alumni
Class of '10
Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies

“The comradery among service men and women exists due to hardships and discipline soldiers confront together on a regular basis. More than anything, military life has taught me to appreciate my freedom as an American, something I took for granted before I joined. I learned self-discipline, which made me a better student, and ultimately, helped me realize my career aspirations. As soon as I stepped foot onto campus, and started contacting professors like Carolyn Horner, the whole experience from start-to-finish has been welcoming and encouraging. ”

Sylvia Rushing 2010
Sylvia Rushing Grad Alumni
Class of '10
Bachelor of Science in Nursing

“Well foremost, I am privileged to be the first in my family to get a bachelors degree and also, to graduate with honors from a really great program at South University is a great feeling as well. Dr. Morrow helped me see how nurses have a great ability to change lives, in very tangible and far reaching ways. I've known this gift a long time, but in studying for the BSN degree I learned that there is a whole new door opening to my career in nursing that I never knew existed”

La'Sondrick Bridges 2011
La'Sondrick Bridges Grad Alumni
Class of '11
Master of Business Administration

“After talking it through, I realized I could go to school and work full time as well They really care about you and want you to succeed.”
