SUU was a great school for my first two years of college. After I got my Associate's Degree, that's where things went down hill.
They cared about my success only as long as it made them look good. After suggesting outside-the-box projects for Honors coursework, many of the professors weren't interested in helping me out because My thoughts were too "unconventional". My thought was, "The reason why I chose SUU is because "Learning Lives Forever". All of my professors were encouraging me to think out-of-the-box. Things didn't seem to match up.
My Majors were Spanish and French. I studied abroad, but there were no programs that offered semester stays while taking coursework in French or Spanish. This since has changed, but my grades did not change over properly and it was a huge hassle with the Department chairs to get the coursework into the SUU system in appropriate course labels.
While going for career advice, the advisors were ignorant as to help me with a future career. Many of the career councilors and professors were trying to steer me toward teaching, but I later found out, after taking a bit of their advice, that teaching wasn't for me. Even though I would express my concerns, the staff would state that teaching was the only respectable thing I could do given the circumstances. Really? There is more to life than teaching.
Overall, the more and more I stayed at SUU, the more apparent it became that it is merely a teacher and coaching factory, with narrow-minded individuals trying to impose their ideals on others.
After graduating from there, I would say that you should go to another institution for your university education.
