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.

Applying to Saint Augustine's University has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I won't lie and say there hasn't been any challenges, or there won't be challenges. What I will say is this: the good definitely outweighs the bad. The University has afforded me the opportunity to create bonds with people that I have grown to love. All of my professors are eager and willing to assist. This is definitely the university of second chances. The school also cultivates you to be able to perform well in the outside worlds. I am an international student and there are so many opportunities for international students within the University. You won't regret attending Saint Augustine's University.
I am not a student that is fond of online learning. As a matter of fact, I find it quite difficult to understand classroom work outside a classroom. However, the professors have seen how challenging online learning can be and have made it their greatest endeavor to ensure every student is able to fully function given the circumstances. Although I still prefer in class lectures, the online learning platform has not been as difficult as I anticipated.
