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!
Review Augusta University
My overall experience at AU has been pretty great The courses here are challenging but definitely not impossible. Science and math courses will make you rethink everything you ever thought you knew about studying but in the end you'll be thankful for the challenge. Aside from one, my professors have been amazing. Every professor I have taken has been extremely proficient in their field, and not one has ever refused to help or guide me in the right direction. Business office and academic advisement is lacking in some areas, mostly communication and clarity but other than that AU has it going on! With the recent name change and rise of sport victories, Augusta has itself a college-town growing right under its nose. I cant wait to grow with this college!
Augusta University, being the local college in town, seemed to be the most convenient, affordable college experience. Although, I was able to experience a change I never expected staying at home, seeing many of my former classmates, and the lack of college spirit was going to be quite the unpleasant experience. In this freshmen experience, I almost lost my interest in college after finding that the most difficult part was the school, facility, and people rather than the school work. From this experience, I learned to never stay home that first year of college unless you cannot healthily function without your family being close. To fulfill your college experience, I truly believe that the fresh start should include a new environment, a dorm, and of course all the courses you need to seek your future goals. It's definitely a huge college regret of mine.
