Southern Virginia University is a private liberal arts institution that was founded in 1867 as a school for girls, but is now coeducational. SVU is located in Buena Vista, VA, and integrates the ideals of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints into the education, but is not affiliated. Business, human development, and visual arts are favored academic programs among undergraduates. The admission process is “selective.”
svu is a small school refuge for those lost in a sea of people. it brings back the ear in learn as your professors listen to your thoughts in the small class sizes. it sets the standards that will lift you higher for the rest of your life.

southern virginia university has helped to inspire me to reach my goals. the small school atmosphere allows me a closer relationship with my professors who are willing to work with students and help them in any way that they can. the students are friendly, have a natural glow about them, and are all here for the same reason: to succeed.
