I was there for two years and ended up transferring. There are a limited amount of professors and students always end up not getting the courses they need! Professors here are also extremely hard. Although the campus is beautiful it is VERY small and I think there are not enough students there. Dorms at UV are terrible and the parking situation is a nightmare for freshmen. Social/party life is non-existant and it is hard to get involved on campus or in clubs. I wouldn't recommend going here unless you are very academic-oriented and enjoy a small university feel.

I love Augusta University! Augusta has given me opportunities to make something better of myself and to become a greater version of myself. I am a student hopeful of receiving the HOPE scholarship one day, and I hope that I could get money to satisfy my financial issue, as my family is currently struggling more than we ever have before.
This school is amazing for academics, especially for medicine. As far as "bang for your buck", I would argue that Augusta's the best place for medicine in the state. The proximity to different hospitals compared to the tuition makes for an outstanding deal. Couple that with the fact that it's very near the Medical College of Georgia, and you have a university with many opportunities for research and internships. The majority of science professors are reasonable and care for your learning and well-being.

If you want the "traditional college experience", this is not best school for it. The University does have fun events , and there are many organizations you can join, including an expanding greek life. However, turnout's a problem for many of the school's events. Students often take the drive to other in-state colleges when looking for a good party scene.

Overall, there is a tradeoff between student life and academics, but it's worth it if you're interested in medicine especially.
