Absolutely life-changing. AC prepared me for law school and life in ways I cannot explain. The professors here truly love what they do and want to pass that on to the students. The community is close-knit and welcoming to everyone. Give AC a chance, where you’ll have a name and not just a number.
Austin College is a very friendly community and environment. Everyone is social and wants to connect to others, and the support it has for your journey through college is nothing short from the best.
Despite having one of the weirdest experiences as a first-year student during COVID, the college professors did their best despite the difficulties of hybrid and online classes. Overall as a student, there is still more to experience and hopefully as the pandemic eases over time the experience becomes better,
Austin College has taught me alot in my career journey and well as adulthood. I have definitely grown alot in the the two years I have attended and learned quite a few things about life. The academics here are mainly pre-med based but are rigorous and worth it for the pre-med track. Research opportunities are great as well. Availability for classes and major options otherwise are limited. The campus, dorms and housing and the cafeteria are very average. Other than that if you are pre-med its a good option.
I am so happy I chose a small liberal arts school. Small classes, knowing your professors, and life-long friends are all great advantages. I was pre-med, but loved my non-science classes.
Austin College taught me how to problem solve and how to approach life. The education itself was invaluable and has served me well. I recommend it to anyone wanting to attend a small college. You will be called by your name and taught by the actual professor of the course.
I am grateful daily to have attended Austin College. I received a wonderful, well-rounded educations, that has definitely helped me achieve my career goals and beyond! I chose to attend AC for it's community. The campus is small and accessible, with a wonderful ratio of students:professors. I always had the support I needed. The campus is also beautiful. The main dorms are on-campus, with no roads or streets between the buildings! The campus felt safe and comforting. I enjoy going back to visit! I always feel at home!
The four years I was there made a lasting impression that I still enjoy. It was small enough so it felt that everyone could be invited to everything but it was never crowded. Academics were informal but rigorous. I love that there is an observatory now!
I chose AC because of the walkable campus with no streets in between the dorms and the major buildings. It took less than 10 minutes for me to get to class. There have been multiple upgrades to buildings, dorms and the city of Sherman in the last 10 years. The five years Masters in Teaching is a great choice for students wanting to concentrate on a subject and then become a teacher.
Attending Austin College was the best decision I ever made. The community cares about you and there are amazing opportunities to prepare you for a competitive work force. Taking advantage of all that Austin College offers, asking questions, and participating in the college community are the keys to an experience you will cherish. Austin College is not only an outstanding and unique education experience, it’s a support system for life.
AC helped me grow academically and as a person. I traveled the world and made life long friends. My professors remember me even now. I was accepted into ivy league law schools, and offered full tuition scholarships at 3 TX and CO schools. I am now a successful attorney and owe a lot to AC.
Going to Austin College was one of the best decisions I have made. I was able to be a name and person in small classes rather than a number, lost in the crowd. It’s a beautiful campus with everything you need, full of professors and staff that will know you by name and you will know them. High, excellent academics and a bustling student life.
Amazing experience! Austin College has given me many opportunities that I simply could not have been given at a larger school.
My experience at AC prepared me to gain entrance to medical school, succeed while achieving my graduate degree, and to continue to thrive in practice.
Austin College is a one of a kind experience which prepared me to think for myself. It is a small liberal arts college that prepares students for not only graduate school( medical, law, business), but for the world beyond. Each student has a mentor to help guide you through graduation and beyond. The academics are beyond compare, but that’s not all AC provides. It has many extra curricular activities:sports, choir, social and service organizations. I made lifetime friendships with my peers and my instructors. It is a place to grow and feel safe.
I love this campus so much!! The professors and staff are so nice and helpful. I feel like more than a number and am given all the tools I need to have success after my undergrad.
The transition to online learning was super easy! If I had any trouble my professors were super helpful and understanding!
Austin College is a place where I have grown in leadership skills and is a place where people are happy to help you grow in such skills. There are different things to do every week and there are always friendly people to reach out to for help. The resources on campus are for all students and have helped me achieve certain positions. (I did learn my first year to bring rainboots to campus.) There are many places for students to study and with the newly renovated Ida Green Theater it has become many students favorite place to study. Before Ida Green's renovations, the Idea Center was also a great place for me to study as well as the library. Professors here are also very passionate about what they teach and have creative ways for students to showcase their knowledge. During the spring, I fancy going out on the College Green to have a picnic with friends and enjoy the Texas sun. Austin College is a campus where students are transformed every day and show to be leaders today and tomorrow.
While taking classes online I was happy to know that my professors were available to me most of the day and had strong communication skills as well. I flourished as a student even through zoom because of their optimistic attitudes and their attention to each individual student and their progress.
Austin College is a mainly in-person campus. The campus experience is great with the school's activity board having movie nights, mid day free snacks, and other programs offered every week. The RAs also have plans for students living in the dorms. The school is very focused on pushing students to pursue research opportunities and wants students to attend peer research sessions.
