Augusta University Reviews
I like Augusta University, because the staff is extremely friendly and easy to talk to. There are plenty of diverse and friendly students to get to know. If you study hard and do your work, it will be easy to succeed. This is my freshman year, and I love it so much. It is a good school for good people, even if you aren't a medical, dental, or cyber student. #GO JAGS!
Augusta University is what you make it. If you are looking to have the time of your life in college, consider attending another school. The science department has the hardest curriculum. Some of the professors are excellent at and some are poor at teaching. To ensure you get the most out of your classes, read reviews on the professors you choose. Campus life is not very exciting because most events are planned in the middle of the day when students are in class. Honestly, sometimes I feel like I'm being taxed to attend this university. The tuition and fees are very pricey. Overall, do not go here unless you are strictly committed to your studies.
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!
