I did not go here for undergrad and I am so surprised at the amount of bureaucracy I have had to navigate through since getting into the program. Nobody has any time for you, the program itself is incredibly poorly designed and makes it almost impossible to work your way through school because some classes are only offered during the day. Its almost as if none of the professors actually sat down and gave the program some thought from a students perspective. Some of the staff are very nice, but on the whole it seems that no one can spare a minute. There is not a whole lot of transparency with the program either. For example, pre-requisites for classes are not actually listed in the catalog given to you, so you need to ask your adviser to lay out your entire program because you won't be able to yourself. Your very nearly crippled as soon as you are into the program by a painstakingly slow and ill-conceived progression of courses. That is not to say that the teachers are not brilliant, all of them are highly intelligent and talented. However, nothing is made easy at this school, it just doesn't seem to work. I would HIGHLY suggest exploring other options before thinking about a special ed program through southern.
