Will learn a lot
When I went to Southern I learn so about the school and what I should expect when I attend. The staff are very friend and treat everyone with kindness.
Will enjoy being here
There are so many people at Southern and each one has there own personality. However one thing they all have in common is that they love the Lord, and if you do to then you will fit right in.
Bang for the buck
Its pretty easy to get a job on campus and there are so many places around that will hire people for all types of reasons.
Tips for prospective students
Go and see the school for yourself dont take anyones word for it but your own!
Great for these types of students
Anyone who is willing to learn, and wants to go places in life.

Did learn a lot
I definitely learned a lot about myself as well as my subject material. There are many opportunities at Southern to find a path that fits your personality and interests. If you aren't sure what you want to do with your life Southern has advisers, student mentors, and counselors that can help you find a career choice or two suited to your lifestyle.
Did enjoy being here
Southern offers a variety of activities to keep you busy while you aren't hitting the books. I really enjoyed the social mixers and the athletic program. Intramural sports and other extracurricular activities allow you to meet a greater number of people from a variety of majors. People who can later become a great resource as you are exploring all the career options Southern offers.
Bang for the buck
For a private school Southern isn't really that expensive. They also offer scholarship options for that extra financial push.
Tips for prospective students
Get involved-the more you put into your college experience the more you'll get out of it.
Don't be afraid to ask questions - Sometimes questions left unasked are missed opportunities to learn.

Stay focused - whether you are a freshman just coming in or a senior on the home stretch wasted time is time lost for good. That's something no one can afford in this economy.

Great for these types of students
Flexible, open minded students who want to enjoy their college experience
Hard working students who want to finish as quickly as they can
Anyone who wants to expand their knowledge base in a positive, supportive environment

Dorm Life
i love my dorm, its very convenient. we have a kitchen, free laundry room and spacious nicely decorated lobby on each floor. the dorm is clean.

What to do for fun
hulsey wellness center offers state of the art exercise equipment, pool, saunas, steam rooms and free exercise classes. the downtown area is close by as well. gymnastics team, nature trail and cave offer unique opportunities to enjoy.

The people you will meet in Southern will stick around long after college. Some students and parents compare southern to a marriage program because every Adam has his Eve. With so many students Southerns students make Southern what it really is. Everyone is super friendly. Maybe its the awesome weather! Definitely a place for the single students.

If you are looking for a small town college in a park-like setting; this is the place for you. Small class sizes lend to getting to know the students and the instructors! Emphasis on a personal relationship with Jesus is a plus for students who want to make Him a part of their life.
Tips for prospective students
Plug into resources! Attend your worship services! Attend your classes! Study hard and get your assignments done quickly. Take advantage of the extracurricular activiities - they're fun and you get to know lots of people! I took a year off to be a student missionary in Africa! What an incredible experience!
Academic Rigor
You definitely need to study but that would be at any school! Whatever your goals are - go out there an get here!
Dorm Life
Love it! Now I'm an RA in a campus condo! Everyone is great here.
Food and Dining
Excellent food if you're a vegetarian! I love the food here - it's delicious and affordable!
What to do for fun
I'm an officer in the cooking club! My friends and I love going hiking & camping and this summer I'm working at a youth camp where I am helping with adventure camp. We'll be repelling, white water rafting and caving to just name a few things.
Bang for the buck
I've been fortunate to be raised around mission minded people. I've been to at least a dozen different countries on mission trips lasting from 2 wks to about 11 months! When I graduate from college I hope to devote a large part of my time to mission work!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There's all kinds of hiking areas and a cool cave - if you don't mind getting a little dirty!
Great for these types of students
Vegetarians! Outdoors people! Christian students!
