Averett University Reviews
Rating 3.55 out of 5 348 reviews
I like the city Danville which is where Averett university is located. Averett is a small university, nice for getting to know the staff and students. I haven’t had any bad experiences there my first year. The food isn’t the best so that’s one thing I would like to change.
Averett University is literally magnificent. And I am not just saying that. I have never in my life enjoyed a whole school year. Everything was interesting and don't even get me started on the people. Each staff was very helpful and respectful. The University stands for so many things such as the black lives matter movement. I don't even have one bad thing to say about them. So encouraging and I am beyond grateful to be enrolled in this school.
They helped me so much online. More than anyone else would've helped physically. They are angels sent from heaven.
Upon applying to Averett, I had a wonderful experience with an admissions counselor who set me up for my graduate program. I jumped into the program, but with not much understanding of what I was getting into. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I did it, but it was a little bit stressful getting the schedule figured out, as you would end one class on a sunday and start the next on monday.
I took all of my classes online, which was great as I could complete assignments while working my normal schedule. Depending on the professors, the experience varies. I had a few professors who seemed that they did not want to help students.
Some of the classes are challenging, but overall I’ve learned a lot in the classroom that can also be used in the real world.
I did participate in online classes during the fall. I have four online classes during the spring. The teachers worked diligently to make online learning fun. They used many platforms to make everyone feel like they were sitting in the classroom face to face.
I love the feeling of this hometown university. It is very family oriented, and reflects the importance of tradition. Averett University is very diverse, and I feel right at home. I am so glad I chose AU to further my academic career. It is a beautiful campus with many extra-curricular student activities.
I did have a few classes online this past semester. PRofessors were very understanding of the constantly changing situation and adjusted their teaching methods to fit the online format and our student needs directly.
I paid a deposit for the enrollment of my daughter and Covid-19 hit and I lost my job. The college refused to refund my deposit even with the pandemic. They kept money when services were never rendered. I tried speaking with several different people. Most of the time I did not get a response and the 2 others I spoke with denied my refund request. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. My daughter will NEVER go to this crappy college. Additionally, their dorms are TERRIBLE and for the amount this place cost's, instead of lining pockets they should put money into renovations. Im sad I ever considered this place for my childs college education. Thank goodness she didnt attend. Only good thing to come from Covid-19 yet!
I hated this school and the entire city of Danville. The focus is on the sports programs and they can't be bothered with you otherwise. Most teachers were not interested in helping you out. One even told me that it was like that on purpose to weed out the ones who couldn't make it. I did have one good one that gave me a great recommendation when I finally had to transfer out of here to a college that was a better fit for me. Besides that, someone got into my dorm room and stole some things and when I called security about it, they blamed me for it! As for the city of Danville, I couldn't stand going anywhere there. It was too slow and I didn't find the people all that friendly. If you asked anyone for anything, they always looked mad that they had to do something. I never felt safe either. I couldn't wait to leave. I didn't even make it here one year before I got out! It always hurt because this was my first college experience. Luckily, the next college I went to made up for it.
This is my first year here, but some of the online learning experience is a little stressful, but i think i can get the hang of it.I feel like the professors knows what they are doing and teaching us the right materials. The teachers are very helpful when it comes to online classes
What i like about averett is that, their campus is wonderful, they have really amazing food here, great staff, and wonderful RA's!
Yes I did take some classes online due to the pandemic this year . The teachers were awesome with switching from a in the class type of teaching and online teaching. They worked really hard to get the materials you needed to succeed.
Averett University is a really nice school, I went there for tour a few months bachk and I was really amazed on the school environment and the students there were really nice and the football teamm is really great and i ust cant waint to attend this fall
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’ve only been at Averett for a couple of months and it has already become a second home for me. I love the small classroom sizes and the connections I have with my teachers. I currently play football for Averett and my team has brought me as one of them. I wouldn’t trade my school for the world.
