What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
Students should take advantage of all that Southern has to offer such as different courses, sports, clubs, job opportunities on campus, and the helpful staff. In addition, students should get involved as early as possible and find an advisor that will help them navigate throughout their years at Southern
Jessica from East Haven, CT
If you have interest in this school, make sure you come to a campus open house so you can check out everything to really get a feel. Also, if you are looking for a good education and not as much worried with the social aspects than this is the best school for your money. Check out the college's website for their sports and clubs and see which one you would enjoy as this is the best way to guarantee a strong social relationship with other students living on campus.
Max from Naugatuck, CT
Future students I encourage you to visit schools and then try to choose the right school. Southern is a good school and good for commuters.
Amanda from CT
Students thinking about attending this college should know how to have good time management skills as well as organization. It is also good to learn to be independent, it could be hard coming here and jumping right into it.
Danielle from Vernon, CT
The campus is big so if you have class on opposite sides of campus a bike would be a good option. Don;t worry if you're shy because there are always things to do to get to know people and the CA's are really nice.
Brianna from Shirley, NY
Make sure you are focused and always in class on time.
Handle your business with financial aid and scholarships.
Make sure you are visiting your academic adviser daily.
Angela from East Haven, CT
Plan out what courses you need to take and when you want to graduate. Set goals for yourself so you don't fall behind and are left out of courses you need to help you move toward graduation.
