"SUSC was what SUU was when I came fresh from Nigeria. I was only 17. I was nervous and really did not know what to think of my new home for 4 years. Everything about the school was perfect. The small classes, students, teachers and staff all made my stay worth it. The school of business staff really made a lasting impression on my life. I am still in contact with several of my past professors because of the relationship both on the academic and personal side. The amount of course work and content helped me getting employed and stay employable. I recommend the school to my brothers and strangers."
