“My time at SGU was an amazing experience. I felt fully supported throughout my whole entire journey and I couldn’t be more grateful to SGU for giving me this opportunity. My time on the island was an experience I wouldn’t trade for anything and I’m thankful for the lifelong friendships I made and the memories I’ll hold with me for the rest of my life.”

“I believe SGU was my ticket to everything! SGU gave me the foundation and tools necessary to achieve my goals. Aside from academics, SGU offered me research opportunities starting in Term 2. This allowed me to work with Dr. Paul Fields for a year and a half on initiating and gaining approval for three clinical trials.”
