Worst College Ever

Reviewed: 4/1/2019

Degree: Pharmacy

This is the worst college to ever attend, and my experience at this school was terrible. First, the teachers crammed information daily, about 100 power point slides and youre tested twice a week. The teachers were very unapproachable and extremely unhelpful. I also felt that some teachers were extremely racist and only helped favorites, so we were forced to do a lot of work with minimal guidance. The teachers used intimidation tactics during class which created a stressful learning environment and... Read More

Do not go here

Do not go to this university to do pharmacy. Get ready to take 2 test EVERY week and sit in class for hours. You dont learn anything just here to pass. The professors cant teach. You teach yourself and each professor thinks their class is more important but we have 6 classes each quarter.

I am still amazed how you can have professors that just graduated in a school that offers a doctorate program (without a higher level like a residency). Their professors are all family members, and they dont care if they are not qualified to teach, as long as the whole family is in. The school just wants your money. They dont care if you learn or not, thats reality. I was one of the top students in my class, and I can say I felt I knew very little after graduation. When it comes to rotations, most... Read More

This is a very poor program,and I do not recommend it. The teachers are not all qualified to teach the classes in which they do, and most instructors handout large PowerPoints and send you home to teach yourself rather than them teaching at all. Students are not able to get questions answered as many teachers literally do not know. Books are not always provided limiting student resources, online technological learning is not utilized, database access is limited, students only have one printed in... Read More

Degree: Pharmacy

This is one of the worst Pharmacy Schools nationwide. Their tuition is the highest and the quality of education received is poor, they have the lowest graduation rate yet the highest retention rate because the hold students back every chance they get for remediation so they can get more tuition. The program is supposed to be 3 years yet they are quick to make it 4 while you wait a whole year to restart with loans due. I think it is a disadvantage for being a small university because professors have... Read More

Degree: Pharmacy

You get out of something what you put into it, right? This school is hard. Its supposed to be. I can say that I feel prepared to go out into the pharmacy setting daily and make my patients lives better. That is why I went to school, to learn, to network, and to help people in the long run. South is a very tough program, and I am thankful because it taught me discipline and determination I can now carry through life. Being a real pharmacist has had its adjustments, but I am proud to say that I am... Read More

Degree: Pharmacy

I have extremely enjoyed my experience at South University thus far. The courses are interesting and intellectually challenging along with extremely knowledgeable and supportive professors who go out of their way to get to know every student and guide each one on the path to success. The professional environment really prepares students for a rewarding future in their fields. Unfortunately, because South University is a private college, the graduate programs are very expensive with little to no opportunity... Read More

Crap PharmD program

Reviewed: 6/15/2015

Degree: Pharmacy

South University Pharmacy School is a terrible program. They will lie to everyone just to get their tuition money and sell them this for-profit "education" over a cheaper state school alternative. They tell students all kinds of lies like they can do their rotations anywhere or that there will be tons of job offers when they get out. This is completely false. The school does not let students do their rotations anywhere so that they can save money on opening contracts with new locations. They also... Read More

Degree: Pharmacy

This is an accelerated program. So instead of four years of pharmacy education, it is condensed into three years. If you are not good at managing time then this is not the program for you, especially if you cannot handle high stress levels. Time management for this program is key. It is doable. I am involved with organizations within the school, such as: KE, APhA, ASHP, class Vice President, and I do work 8-15 hours per week when didactics are in session. My GPA is above a 3.50, so it is manageable.... Read More

Pros: It is a small, private college so you get close to the professors and fellow classmates. It is also in a great location. Cons: It is a private institution so the tuition is extremely high.
