    I enjoy being at Southern. At the beginning it was really hard getting used to being away from my parents and many of my best friends, but I have met so many amazing people. I really like that Southern is a very diverse University, that was one of the things that attracted me to this campus. I also like that the professors and staff at Southern are nice.
