Augusta University Reviews
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at AU. In particular, their Social Work program has changed my life. I have been able to be mentored by incredible professors and have gotten to the opportunity to be a social work intern through their BSW program, which has given me my first real social work related experience. I will be graduating from AU in May of 2019 and I will surely miss it once I am gone!
I took both the vitural tour and campus tour of Augusta University and it was amazing. They have so many majors and minors. They have a lot of medical majors too which is amazing. Also the school is affordable which is so amazing. The campus, majors, and tuition is what makes this school my number 1 school I want to go to!
With the recent partnership with Medical College of Georgia, a degree with Augusta State, GRU, or Augusta University is one that will be followed with a look of prestige. This school offers a great challenge in each of its fields and career opportunities are growing and plausible with a degree from here. With an extremely well-rounded career center, mock-interviews, resume reviews and guidance towards job searching is a breeze with the staff found on the second floor of University Hall. Many medical fields promise job placement upon graduation and that is one incentive worth working towards!
