There are SO many great reasons to live on campus – you’ll do better in school, make lifelong friends, have a built-in support system, and live close to everything. South students are not required to live on campus...they choose to!

Student Services

"I have been given so many opportunities at South as a student and have had the best faculty and instructors. Teachers here make an effort to get to know students individually and that's not everywhere. Between class, work, and extracurricular activities, I have gotten more than I could ask for from my college experience."  Click for more related to Student Services.
