Students & Alumni Speak about Online Learning

by South University, Online Programs
July 10, 2014 Find out what undergraduate and graduate students at South University, Online Programs value about our online learning experience.

Our students are always busy. Many have full-time jobs and family responsibilities—which is why they demand an online environment that’s flexible and that can work with their hectic schedules. It’s also why we designed our online degree programs to allow students to attend class and access their study materials any time of day from anywhere with internet access.


Hear more from our students and alumni about why they chose South University, Online Programs.

In Their Own Words

"The online courses at South University allowed me to receive my BSN and continue to work at the same time. I could log into my class at any time and from any where, when it was convenient for my schedule. Because of the easy access, convenience and availability of help when needed, I decided to return to South University, Online Programs to gain my MSN to become a Nurse Practitioner."
- Monica Peck, Bachelor of Science in Nursing 2012 graduate, Master of Science in Nursing student

"One of the main things that I enjoyed about attending South University, Online Programs was the flexible schedule it offered. I was able to start classes at my convenience without waiting a long period of time between breaks. At one point I had to take a three month break due to financial reasons, but I was able to immediately start back once I was ready."
- Joe Black, Master of Science in Information Systems and Technology, 2012 graduate

"The online experience is less rigid, much more flexible, but still has the same level of instructors as you have on the regular college campus. Plus, I like the ease of working at my own pace through assignments and at all hours of the day."
- Jack Siegel, Bachelor of Science in Health Science student

"I was working night shift at University Hospital, driving 65 miles one way to work, and raising 5 children, so I needed a program that allowed for flexibility in my busy schedule. Sitting in a brick and mortar school at a specified time for a few hours each week was not doable."
- Sandra Ross, Master of Science in Nursing, 2012 graduate

"I liked the convenience of taking classes online especially being a working mom and a military wife. My degrees have definitely opened up more job opportunities for me and I am very hopeful that once my family and I relocate with the military, my degrees from South University will continue to open up doors for me."
- Demetria Mills, Associate of Science in Paralegal Studies, Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies, 2012 graduate

"I like the online environment because it is very convenient for students to work or attend to family and still earn their degree for future careers. The online classrooms are easy to navigate and the instructors are friendly and caring."
- Sherry Boyce, Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management student

"The motivation for me to pursue my education with South University was the flexibility of the courses and the care that the staff took to make sure my every step and my overall direction were geared toward achieving my goals in life."
- Tanisha Jones, MBA in Healthcare Administration, 2012 graduate
