What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
Don't be afraid to leave home. I moved across the country to come to this school and I'm so glad I did. I always thought I wanted to go to a big school, but after starting here, I realized that the small classes are what I need.
Cristina from Buena Vista, VA
The teachers are wonderful. Do not be afraid to talk to your teacher after class, they are willing to help you. If you do not understand anything, please go to them. Get to know your classmates (you will see them all of the time). Bring a car or have means of transportation to make your own fun. Off campus housing is the best option.
DIAMOND from Grosse Pointe Park, MI
I would do anything you could to check out the awesome scholarships and grants Southern Virginia offers. There are talent grants, academic scholarships, extra-curricular scholarships, you name it! This school tries really hard to make sure you can afford it.
Haley from Richmond, KY
i would encourage any prospective student to visit the campus first. smaller schools are not for everyone but if you visit and love what you see then it's most likely you will truly enjoy attending this university.
Madison from Ringgold, GA
Don't be intimidated by coming here. We often joke that this is the BYU of the east, except it's much smaller. Just be prepared to have someone there for you.
Mikelle from Las Vegas, NV
If you are considering SVU, be prepared to participate in class. The small class sizes means that your professors will actually care if you come to class regularly. Become involved with the community. Buena Vista is a small town but it's people have a lot to offer. Find opportunities to be a leader-servant. That is what SVU is all about.
Kaia from Herriman, UT
You can pretty much walk to all your classes, they are not far from all the dorms and other housing. Check to see if Southern Virginia University has your desired major, and don't judge this school by its cover, come take a look, meet some people so you really get to know what the school is like.
Laura from Pasco, WA
If you are considering Southern Virginia I highly suggest you go. The education, location, and people are amazing. Be prepared to study a lot. It's definitely hard work but pays off.
