My degree from SouthernEducation
My degree from Southern not only prepared me for my job but it's reputation as an Educational Institution from New England greatly helped in getting a job. In education today, I would recommend that students get more than one area of certification.

Question
My academic experience at Southern was EXCELLENT.Psychology
My academic experience at Southern was EXCELLENT. This school has what you need if you're willing to go after it, so make sure you're informed and proactive. A lot of students didn't seem to take school as seriously, so, yes, the atmosphere wasn't the "brightest". However, I sought out those individuals who were like-minded and I had no problems. As a member of the Honors College my tuition was completely paid for (best decision I could have made as I now have NO student loans). The smaller class sizes (both in and out of honors classes) were really conducive for fostering relationships with professors, and those relationships helped me get a job right out of graduation, and will help me when I apply for graduate school in the fall. The social life at Southern is a bore (as most people are commuters) and the food is pretty bad. But, hey, it was all about the education for me. I had my core group of friends and we all took school pretty seriously. If we felt like doing something fun on the weekend there was no problem getting into downtown New Haven for food, drinks, and dancing. House parties were always fun too! Academic clubs were prevalent (I was a part of both clubs for my major and became president of one). Not too many non-academic clubs that I was aware of, though. Honestly, so happy I went to Southern. Met some of the best and brightest professors I'll probably ever meet. My thesis advisor worked with me over the summer and sometimes into the late afternoon/evenings when we needed to hammer out the work. Looking back on it now, I'm so glad I chose Southern over UCONN. I would have been just a number! Southern's psychology department is a real gem too. Many of the professors in the dept. went to top notch schools and they actually know how to TEACH. Can't say enough about how awesome they were. They really helped me to see my own potential and I will be forever grateful!

Question
First of all, I usually don't leave anyQuite BrightComputer Science
First of all, I usually don't leave any negative feedback to things unless it is TOO bad. For this school, I think it's ok overall, professors are helpful and understandable(including the CS department!)

School are nice, dorms not really. The community is horrible in New Haven because it is a crime and black location. You always feel not safe when outside of school(inside is ok). You see a lot of blacks in school showing their underwears and wearing hats like they were in the mall. Although I know there are lots of black people that are good, most of them are terrible and not ready for class. When doing peer review in English, they are totally not ready and they have terrible grammar that draws you crazy!OKfor the CS department, professors are great and helpful actually, but some of them's first language is not English, which is a little downside. But overall, the Math and CS department are doing ok.
