The Saturday before Thanksgiving, prospective students and their parents gathered at Southern Virginia University for an Open House. I talked to some of these soon-to-be students at the opening reception in the Knight Arena. This university is a real gem and I always enjoy the chance to help others learn more about my alma mater.
It’s exciting to think about the future years of students who will come here, learn from many of the same professors who have taught and inspired me, form meaningful friendships, meet their significant other, and make so many memories on every inch of this beautiful campus.
To anyone considering Southern Virginia, I hope you can find the time to make it to an Open House (you can even get reimbursed for up to $250 of your travel expenses). Come and see all of the potential that this university has to shape your life.
