When I first came to this school, I just knew it was my school. It is where I belonged. Averett University is a small college with the most welcoming people. The teachers want you to succeed and they encourage students to reach their goals.
Averett university is a school where you can come and know you will be safe can relax when the school work is done and make many friends because everyone is so friendly.
I think Averett is a very good school. I think they are always trying to find ways to get their students involved and they're always trying to come up with new programs and activities for students to engage in.

I couldn't have better things to say about Averett University. Let me be clear - if you want a huge state school where you can walk into the cafeteria and no one will recognize you, Averett is not for you. But if you want to speak to almost everyone you pass on your way to class, have professors who take time to get to know you and will ask if y'all can catch up after you graduate, have the opportunity to take on leadership roles in your extra curricular activities, and become a part of a FAMILY, Averett should be your number one choice.

The professors and advisors are phenomenal. If you're wondering just how close of a relationship you make with the staff at Averett - my advisor has a picture of us hanging in her office from my senior pinning, and when going through a hard time in a leadership role, the president wrote me an encouraging handwritten letter. The relationships you make with the staff are exceptional.
Averett University is a very small school but you get to learn more about the people you are with. Also you become very close with your teachers and athletics is a huge part of the University.
What I like about Averett University, is the teachers and the classroom sizes. I also like that Averett want to stay connected with their students. The faculty and staff are very helpful and want to see that all students go after their dreams and turn them into careers. If I could see Averett change I think I would want the dorms to change.
Averett University is a university that is all about big dreams and bold futures. For international students atleast, they create a loving atmosphere for their international students coming from all walks of life with open arms ready to teach and students ready to learn. I am now a sophomore at Averett University and i would recommend this to anybody.
Averett University is a great school in a small area. They care about you as a person no matter where youre from. They make sure you are taking care of according to your needs and they will give your parents a peace of mind.
The best thing about Averett University is that there is a close relationship between the student, the program of study, the advisors, and the instructors. They are exceptional at making student specific adjustments so that a person can graduate on time. There is a lot of support for students who are taking difficult classes like Calculus. There are also a lot of very good transfer options for students who come from the community college system which saves a lot of money.

The only problems I see with Averett University are related to the size of the school. At around 300 students graduating per year, the undergraduate head count is probably around 1000 students. Add in grad students and the entire school probably has no more than 1600 students at any given time. This makes class availability something you must plan for. Larger schools offer classes every semester rather than just once per year.
What I liked: Reasonable class sizes, lots of personal assistance when needed from staff and professors (try taking calculus III in a 200 seat stadium class compare to a class at AU -- it is much better). If you do your work and make an effort you should get a valuable degree in 3-5 years. AU works really closely with community colleges which is a great way to save a lot of money and end up with an Associates degree and a Bachelors which can be nice.

What I disliked: Danville is a little 60 years ago.

Overall: If you major in Education, Computers, or Business you will have no trouble finding a job. If you complete a liberal arts major then you need to be very good at marketing yourself. There are a lot of opportunities for grads from AU especially in Greensboro, Roanoke, and other nearby areas. The school has a good local reputation.
Averett is a great place with a lot of great people. The teachers really care about the student's success. The class sizes are small and provide a more intimate setting. Campus life is fun and there are always events going on. The fellow students are very personable.
Averett University is a great place to attend college. I love the small class size. Professors are incredible always willing to provide one on one help. Averett University has a lot of athletic programs to choose from. The campus food is wonderful. Campus security is every present and vigil there are more than adequate number of call boxes through out the campus. Averett University is an multi nationality campus. Many local events in Danville that happens near Averett University through out the year.
Overall great school. I love the atmosphere, friendly staff, plenty of activities going on. The café has good food. Small campus, but still plenty going on to entertain students. Offers many academic programs and administrators are very willing to help you succeed.
Great professors and amazing programs! It's a dry campus which is problematic. The atmosphere on campus can be uncomfortable for certain students but groups such as the Freedom Alliance and the Black Student Union are trying to change that.
The students are friendly and welcoming. The professors are knowledgeable of their fields. Classes provide hands-on experience. The campus is compact.
I HAVE BEEN THEIR ON ORIENTATION 3 TIMES. THE PEOPLE ARE GREAT. THE CAMPUS IS LAYEDOUT IN A FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE AND PARKING IS AMPLE AND FREE. THE CAMPUS LAYS IN THE HEART OF DANVILLE. THE PROFESSORS THAT I TALKED TO ARE PEOPLE FRIENDLY AND WANT THEIR STUDENTS TO LEARN AND AT THE SAME TIME HAVE A GREAT EXPERIENCE. I CAN NOT WAIT TO GO THEIR IN JANUARY.
People are people, no matter what their ethnic or racial background is. We are all Americans and all Americans deserve to be treated with respect, when earned.

Drugs and alcohol are everywhere. Just don't participate!
This will be my first year at Averett University. However, my siblings attended Averett and are now very successful. I am looking forward to my own experience.
The city where this is school is not the safest, and it is starting to affect the are around the school. Security will take their time to address an issue on campus.
