Saint Augustine's University Reviews
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.
The campus experience at Saint Augustine's University is one to remember. Freshman residential life needs improvement also current building structures need renovations. Although the students there are very diverse especially with the large range of international students. The downfall to the campus is the on campus cafeteria food selection, the food options are very few and the quality of the food is not always the best or the healthiest options. Most students either live off food from the grocery store or fast food unfortunately. Also the need for a more lively campus atmosphere is needed with more on campus activities throughout the year.
St. Augustine itself was okay. Trying to get any answers regarding scholarships, admissions etc, was painstaking. The classes were fine. I ended my freshman year with a 3.4. The cafeteria was not good. It wasn't open half the time and those that played sports barely ever got to even use it. Lots of money spent dining out. The campus apt type living was not bad. It was a decent sized room and had to share a bathroom with the guy next to me. Just do your research before going to ensure they can help you with scholarships.
