Why Spartanburg Regional? Choosing Spartanburg was more about feeling the sense of family and closeness rather than checking off boxes concerning educational experiences and didactics. However, Spartanburg does fulfill those as well! The right “fit” isn’t a term used to describe every program, it really is a special and unique to you fit, and Spartanburg felt like the “right fit” to me!
