This school is a great place to find yourself as part of a community. Its the school to attend if you want real and intimate relationships. While not in the middle of the city, its only 10 minutes to downtown Jackson. A conservative school with conservative rules and attitudes. No drinking or drugs makes for a VERY safe environment to learn. Teachers are available 24/7. SAU is committed to strengthening its students faith in God and making sure every student feels valuable.
The purpose of college is to grow in knowledge and to find your footing in the world - SAU helps you accomplish both. The students are friendly, optimistic, and ready to change the world. The faculty is helpful but they are not enablers - they want you to think for yourself. I grew in faith with Christ - yes this is a Christian Liberal Arts school and it shows in everything that I experienced. The sports complex is cool, and there are always things going on around campus. Not everything is perfect, but the positive outweighed the negative. The campus is small, but not too small. I would attend again.
SAU can be a great place to learn and to grow both academically and spiritually. Unfortunately, the students are very cliquey so if you feel the need to conform and fit in perfectly than you might have a little trouble. The rules really are not that bad considering that when you sign up you sign a contract agreeing to abide by their rules. The cool thing is you don't have to be Christian to go here but you do have to respect the people who are. The faculty are the best and I have only encountered a few who do not agree with me. Overall, it is a personal choice. If I had to choose again this wouldnt be my choice but that is because of the students. The education is worth it, but the hypocritical ways of a lot of the students give SAU a bad rep.
