I love Averett, I am currently a senior at Averett majoring in Sports Medicine and Coaching. Averett is a great place to call home, its full of leadership opportunities, ways to advance in career development, and build outstanding relationships that will last a lifetime. Averett has helped develop me into a better leader, and person. It has helped me in many ways that no other bigger university could. If there was anything that I could change about my time at Averett, would be to go back and relive the best moments I have experienced there. Averett will always be a place I can call home, and I would never go back and change the decision of going there for my higher education.

I love this university. The small size has allowed me to have better relationships, opportunities and education. This small school has a big school attitude in regards to having school pride and always having fun things to do and countless opportunities for community involvement, career opportunities and extracurriculars.
My experience at Averett University was great ! I enjoyed the campus and its staff along with students. The teachers were awesome and made you really feel apart of the school academically . The Campus as a whole was beautiful and diverse with a family running it to become the best successors they can be!
