Why SCO? This is a question hundreds of students ask themselves every year before submitting their applications to Southern College of Optometry. There are many great optometry schools with excellent programs, but what makes SCO stand out? During this webinar, participants will have these questions and more answered by a live panel of SCO Student Ambassadors. These students will discuss their own journey to optometry and why SCO became their ultimate choice for optometry school. They will also share insights as current SCO students regarding the student-life experience. If you are interested in SCO and would like to learn more about why we could be the right optometry school for you, be sure to tune in!
