Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2018

The Physician Assistant Program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale is top of the line. I am receiving the best education from some of the most knowledgeable faculty I've ever met. Our faculty includes physicians as well as PAs. They are some of the greatest people I've ever had the chance to work with. They genuinely care for each of their students, and truly enjoy watching us grow as students and as future medical providers. They fuel my inspiration to practice medicine.

The business school is a fantastic place to learn, and they go the extra mile to ensure their students are able to secure jobs upon graduation. The school as a whole is a very fun place to spend your college years and has something to offer all people.

SIUC is an institution that encourages independence. It's partly the geography--it's a big campus with sprawling housing--but also academic led. My professors' provided me the tools to succeed, but I had to take the initiative to apply those things and to reach out for help as needed. It was a very meaningful growth experience.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Southern Illinois University provides a campus and staff that is conducive to gaining new skills and insight in your field of study. The campus is located in a calm and serene environment. The people are very friendly and helpful within the area. The professors are accommodating and make an effort to build relationships with the students. Carbondale is a Midwestern College town, but St. Louis and Nashville are only a few hours away if you would like to explore the city atmosphere.
