    I think you definitely get all of the bang for your bucks. You get inumerable experience inside and outside of the classroom at a historic and unique institution, it doesn't get any better than that!

    Due to a great amount of budget cuts Southern University is underfunded but for what it is worth it is made up the quality of its education. The view of the bluff is the best sight on campus. Somehow mostly everyone who attends or has attended Southern University loves it dearly as if it were their second home.
