Saint Augustine's University Reviews
I went to Saint Augustine University for the orientation and to meet some of the professors, students, and a tour around campus. It was an amazing experience I could never forget! They showed us around the university and talked about the history and meaning of every building there, also they explained to us exactly what they expected from there students and there expectations were high because they believe everyone can succeed if they have a good and focus mindset. The students there are very encouraging and outgoing, they know how to make a good first impression on you that you will never forget. I believe St Augustine well be an amazing college for me and everyone else.
Saint Augustine's college is a wonderful college that provides a great learning environment and ensures black excellence. It's a private HBCU in Raleigh, North Carolina and my experience was great. The teachers care about their students and make sure they can do everything they need in order to succeed for their degree. The environment is peaceful with lots of learning activities throughout the school. Me personally I say my freshman experience at Saint Augustine was perfect and i recommend this school to anybody.
Saint Aug is a poorly functioning institution with low student morale, poor faculty retention, unkempt facilities, and underwhelming academic programs. I was dripped on by a moldy ceiling tile in the ladies' room. Water leaked into a lighting enclosure during my class. My professors often cancel class. The faculty, staff, and students mistreat early college students.
