Averett is an awesome campus! I've only went to their orientation, however, everyone there is very nice and helpful. Although the campus has a lot buildings, they do have a lot of programs and stuff that is beneficial to anyone that needs it!

The staff takes time to get to know you on a personal level. I like how all students get to have dinner at the president's house, it makes you feel more like a person than a number. I also really like the small classroom sizes, that way professors are able to form a bond with each of their students and help them where they see fit. The campus is small but has a cozy feel so it's not too overwhelming for students. I also liked the diversity. When I took my tour, my guides were foreign exchange students, which I liked.
Averett University has become my second home over the past year and a half. I like Averett because it is very easy to get involved with club and organizations in campus and it is also very easy to make friends and get to know people on campus. What I would lile to see change is the food and arranging for restaurants to be on campus and being able to use meal swipes in the restaurants. It would be easier to use meal swipes instead of our own money due to the fact that if we did not want to eat cafe food, we have more than the school store in the student center.
