Very happy that I chose to attend SXU!BrightComputer Science
Very happy that I chose to attend SXU! Great all around environment. Everyone for the most part is friendly. Classes are nice size. Prof listen & teach to you not at you! They keep the school very clean all the time. They listen & care about your opinions & what you have to say. Always respond quickly & friendly. Nice variety of people-- races. We all get alone. I've never had any problems. Only negative is the tuition & room & board could be a little lower but you get what you pay for... Great reputation. Beautiful atmosphere. Always improving. Looking forward to using what I've learned to make big $$! No regrets.

This "university" is filled with students that areBrightUndecided
This "university" is filled with students that are a product of the very poor Chicago Public School system. As a result, you will have classes, if you choose to attend, in which students do not understand the student-teacher-class model. They will interrupt the teachers and lectures frequently. They will often attend class without ever making an attempt to purchase the required texts (thus perpetually interrupting the class throughout the semester). I jumped ship after only one semester, and it's the best decision I have made academically. This place is good for two groups of people: those who want to work as a nurse (their nursing program is said to be reputable), and those who want to teach from the same crappy public school system from which they emerged. Any other degree will most likely be of little value because the academic rigor (lack thereof) and poor networking within industries (any of them) will set you up for failure. Now, a degree in and of itself is better than none, that is clear. But if you are spending your own dough, do it somewhere that has a better payoff. If you are attending for the sake of learning, again, you can probably do it somewhere else a lot more effectively.

SXU was a painful and expensive mistake.Quite BrightMath
SXU was a painful and expensive mistake. If you are planning on becoming a teacher, this will be a great choice, otherwise you are better off at a state school. There is rampant favoritism all over this school. The worst person at SXU is Dr. Elijah Ward. He is the only person who should never teach or be employed academically. Honestly avoid this one at all costs.
