Student Testimonials:
“I’m very happy studying at SSU. We have nice, experienced teachers and staff, and very enthusiastic students. The campus is very diverse. I really enjoy speaking and spending time with people from different countries. After I complete the ESL program I am planning to apply for the BBA or MBA programs offered by Southern States University."
- Rena, Intensive English Program 

"The ESL lectures offered here are very captivating. The SSU administration is always willing to help their students.. I would recommend this school to all international students who consider studying abroad. My English has improved so much. I’m going to leave the U.S soon, but I’d like to come here to study at this school again, if I have a chance.”
- Helen, Intensive English Program

“One of the advantages of this school is its convenient location. SSU offers English programs in several locations in San Diego and Newport Beach. Another advantage is its very flexible class schedules. The Library and computer labs are a big help to us in improving our English skills. Other ESL schools don’t provide such services."
