What our Students are Saying…

Reasonable cost, no entrance exams, great curriculum and all from a real brick and mortar school. Those are the reasons why I chose USD. I’ve made some wonderful contacts with my professors and fellow students. I look forward to continuing those relationships after I’ve earned my degree.
John Soubik, Coal Township, Penn
The moment I decided I wanted to go back to school was the moment I started wondering how to be a better administrator. I knew from my very first day as a USD freshman back in 1980 that this university was the right choice for me. That still holds true today.
