“The personalization the SUU Math Department provided during my college experience was phenomenal. All of my teachers were so willing to work with me on a one-on-one basis. They provided me with opportunities to assistant teach in and grade for classes, tutor fellow students, and participate in multiple research projects. Their influence helped me obtain two amazing internship experiences that have led to my full-time job offer. At SUU, I felt like I was set up to succeed from the very beginning.”
