What students Say

I’ve visited many campuses and lived in a number of states, but Southern is the only place I’ve ever really felt at home. The students here share my faith and interests, and the professors go out of their way to show us the same love and concern they would for their own children.
—Myron Madden, senior

What Alumni Say

Through the archaeology program I was able to gain professional work experience during Southern’s excavations in Israel. This helped me get accepted into one of the world’s leading graduate schools for conservation.
