Stephen Floyd - SWU Student
"The computer science program at Southern Wesleyan University prepared me in many ways. Through strong relationships that were built with my professors I was about to get interviews. The content that I learned also prepared me for my masters in computer information systems at Boston University."
Lance Ingle, Class of 2009
"I felt well-prepared when I graduated. That confidence has helped me through interviews, proposing new projects/solutions at work and has even helped me push through to meet deadlines. The experience I gained at SWU is invaluable."
