    Great for these types of students

    It is an excellent school for a student who is on a budget and cannot afford an expensive school. Also, it is a good school for students that had B averages in high school because it provides a fostering environment for learning and getting used to college life. Also, if you are required to work throughout your collegiate years this is a good school for you because the city of Augusta provides many job opportunities. Also, many ASU students are adult students are returning to school to get a higher degree, start a degree program, almost every class especially in the afternoon will have one or two adult students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before applying for admission, it would be a best bet to visit the campus during fall or spring semesters to see if it is a match for you. The school is very small compared to other universities in the state, but isn't crowded due to the small population of students. If you see yourself as a student at ASU, apply as soon as you can, admissions is rolling so you are able to apply even after the application deadline. The admission's office works really fast to give you an answer as soon as possible. If you are applying for University housing, get your application in as soon as possible because housing is limited, but before applying for housing- go check out the housing because for some the apartments are too far from the school and the area for some is not good, even if you don't like the student housing that the school provides, there are many options for housing even right on Walton Way, so it is close to school and covenant to school. Overall it is an excellent school, but many of its students commute to and from school and are from the Augusta- Richmond County area.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition for the school for in state is roughly around 2k per semester which is very affordable compared to other college and universities in the state of GA. The tuition and fees cover everything from parking, events that are held throughout the semester, use of the school's gym and other facilities. For students that have Georgia's HOPE scholarship, it is roughly around $40-200 dollars per semester to attend without books. Textbooks range roughly around $400-700 per semester but the ASU bookstore has a better buy back policy than any other school that I have encountered with its textbooks.

    Did enjoy being here

    The campus is very small, which means that there are less students than major universities throughout the state. The campus has an historic charm feeling to it as many of the buildings on campus have some significant role from history. The students are very friendly and many know each other through the local highschools that they attended together. I was from a different high school which was over 150 miles away but I still met so many new people and everybody I encountered on campus were very nice, friendly and helpful. Most students become friends in their classes as they help each other throughout the semester. The school offers many different activities that are planned throughout the semester to bring its students together like movies, concerts, events and lectures. Also being in GA's second largest city, there is a lot of concerts and different events held off campus and ASU has the option of purchasing discounted tickets which allow the students to attend these events on a more affordable note.

    Did learn a lot

    Most of the professors and TAs that I had at ASU were very knowledgeable in their field and also held terminal degrees in their fields. Like all colleges, most of the class times were strictly lecture based but many professors gave examples to describe what they were lecturing on and it allowed the student to really apply the knowledge to an everyday applicable field. Many professors have office hours which allow you to visit with your professor to get one on one help with things that you might have had trouble with in class. Also, the school's writing center and math lab are very structured and helpful! The TA's are very knowledgeable in their field and help the students out , if the student has a hard time understanding the professors method of teaching. If you are ready to learn and work hard, this school is for you.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for any type of person. Shy people will meet people just as easily as more outgoing people will. Students who struggle in a subject will have classes that are at their level, other students who will be at that same level, and tutors that are readily available to help!!!

    Tips for prospective students

    Come visit the school. Ask a lot of questions. Get your tour guide's email address if you can, so if you have more questions after you go home, you can have a specific person who can answer them for you. If you decide to come here, sign up for FYE. It's a great way to help you transition from living at home, to being a first year college student! If you can stay in the University Village Apts, do it! The experience is invaluable!

    Bang for the buck

    This is a great school for the money! It's academics are excellent, and it's fun to go to see the sports teams play. It's got everything that a bigger school would have, but I don't feel like a number here. The University Village apartments are great, and I feel safe wherever I am.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm so glad that I picked ASU! I didn't know anyone before I came, but I've met so many people that I know I'll be friends with for life! I really like my teachers and my classes. I love living in an apartment, and having my own room! Everyone's been really helpful and nice.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers and the school really want you to succeed! The First Year Experience groups you with other Freshman who share your strengths and weaknesses, so you always have people you know to help you if you're struggling!

    Any around 3.3 and higher if you want to apply for scholarships!!!!

    Tips for prospective students

    Be ready for challenges. If you have any concern in regards to how much work you have to do, and if this is the college for you, you should schedule a campus visit first before making your final decision.

    Bang for the buck

    Apply for as many scholarships as you can. You will save a lot of money because it's not that not expensive!!!!

    Will enjoy being here

    Definitely a friendly environment. You will have met friends that will last a lifetime. Not too crowded, nor too small. Campus is safe and secured!!!!

    Students that enjoy a calm life. Those that enjoy or expect to spend time partying may not find the type of parties they were looking for here. Also excellent for any student that can maintain a 3.0 gpa because the school isn't that expensive you'll get a reasonably sized refund if you get plenty of scholarships.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be yourself. Take a tour of the campus to see if this is truly where you want to be. Apply for as many scholarships as you can and try to save your refund money so that if anything happens you have it to use.

    Bang for the buck

    It's not a flashy campus, but it is nice and has charm. Your fees include student activities such as concerts, sporting events, and lectures that the school has. They also give you chances to get discounted tickets for outings such as the movies some times.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is wonderful. It's small so you don't have to worry about being late for a class that's on the other side of campus when you have 15 minutes between classes. The teachers and students are all friendly too.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers and teacher assistants are helpful. If you don't understand something you can ask and they'll help. Some classes are easier than others, but they all provide some sort of challenge.

    Great for these types of students

    THE SCHOOL WILL BE GREAT FOR THOSE WITH A HUMBLE TASTE. IT IS A SCHOOL THAT IS AFFORDED. THE SCHOOL WOULD BE GREAT FOR THOSE WHO ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS TO ATTAIN WHATEVER DEGREE THEY INTEND ON ATTAINING AND LEAVE THE SCHOOL. STUDENTS WHO COME FROM A WEALTHY BACKEGROUND GO TO ASU BUT IT IS MOST LIKELY THAT THEY ATTEND A MORE EXPENSIVE SCHOOL. SO IN A NUTSHELL, IF YOUR PARENTS ARE NOT ADEQUATELY AND FINANCIALLY STABLE, THEY CAN STILL AFFORD TO ENROL YOU INTO ASU.

    Tips for prospective students

    I WOULD ADVICE THOSE THAT INTEND ON GOING TO ASU TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A TOUR AROUND THE SCHOOL. BY DOING SO, YOU BECOME AWARE OF WHAT IT IS YOU ARE GETTING YOURSELF INTO.. SINCE STUDENTS HAVE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES ON COLLEGES, IT IS BEST TO EXTEND YOUR RESEARCH ABOUT THE SCHOOL BY DRIVING THERE TO HAVE A LOOK. BUT I ASSURE THOSE OF DESCENT TASTE SATISFACTION WHEN THEY GO FOR THE TOUR.

    Bang for the buck

    THE FEE IS ROUGHLY AROUND 2K, WHICH IS VERY AFFORDED ALONG WITH THE AID OF FINANCIAL AID AND SCHORLARSHIPS. THE ACCOMODATION IS ALSO VERY PLEASING COMPARED TO THAT OF OTHER INSTITUTIONS. THE STUDENT ARE ENTITLED TO SO MANY THINGS.

    Will enjoy being here

    WHEN I SAW THE SCHOOL AS A WHOLE, I IMMEDIATELY KNEW THAT JOY WAS GOING TO BE IN MY HEART AT ALL TIMES. EVERY INDIVIDUAL PRESENT THERE ALL HAVE A PLEASANT PERSONALITY.THE STUDENTS THERE ARE ALSO CORDIAL. I AM CERTAIN THAT I WILL ENJOY BEING AT ASU.

    Will learn a lot

    i BELEIVE AUGUSTA STATE UNIVERSITY IS A BRIGHT INSTITUTION. MY GOING THERE FOR THE FIRST TIME GAVE ME A FEELING THAT I WAS GOING TO BE INCREASED ACADMICALLY. THE TEACHERS THERE ALL HAVE THE ZEAL TO TEACH AND CARRY ALL STUDENTS ALONG.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of the accessible professors and the free tutoring!

    Bang for the buck

    It's very affordable and you get more than what you are paying for.

    Am enjoying being here

    Campus is small so there is not a lot going on on campus. It's a commutor college, so very few students live on campus. There is enough to keep you occupied in the city of Augusta though.

    Am learning a lot

    Professors are very helpful, usually very reachable as well. Classes are small, which enable me to learn a lot and ask questions whenever I don't understand something. If you ever have any questions outside of class, everyone is helpful and friendly. Curriculum is not always the most challanging, but it teaches you what you need to know.

    Anyone who's serious about being a college student.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go take a walk around the grounds - you'll be hooked! See all the great facilities that ASU has, talk to anyone who goes there and just do your research and you can't go wrong!

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to most other colleges, I believe ASU is very reasonably priced

    Am enjoying being here

    It's a great atmosphere - beautiful campus, great facilities, awesome teachers - you can't ask for better

    Campus Safety

    we have police both on campus and at university village.

    Greek Life

    there are many different sororities and fraternities to choose from, and each have their own specific charities which they do events and raise money for.

    Great for these types of students

    this college is best for those who wish to major in nursing, communications, or early childhood education.

    What to do for fun

    we have the augusta mall, which is only a few minutes up the road and a rgal cinemas which is always packed. of course there are clubs down town.

    Food and Dining

    there is food on campus, but the cafeteria closes at 6pm. and it's the same food every day. so you might prefer to shope for groceries, which are cheaper in the long run anyway.

    Dorm Life

    university village is off-campus, and costs $435 a month for four bedrooms and $535 a month for two bedrooms. electricity, water, etc. all goes to one bill instead of separate which is very convenient. and there are many activities for residents to attend.

    Academic Rigor

    you must be extremely dedicated to your studies in order to succeed academically.

    Tips for prospective students

    study, study, study.

    In three sentences

    asu is academically challenging. the people you meet here will be your friends for life. try to know what you want to major in by your second year of college.

    Great for these types of students

    this school is great for any type of person. shy people will meet people just as easily as more outgoing people will. students who struggle in a subject there are learning facilities on campus that can help you and tutor are always available. also if you cannot afford a expensive school with great befits this is school is great at an affordable price.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    the campus has an historic charm feeling to it as many of the buildings on campus have some significant role from history. also this school is claim to have a ghost i have not seen it. but it is to be said that after climbing the staircase at bellevue hall, a distraught young woman threw herself from a second-story window, joining her fiance in death. emily galt died more than 140 years ago, but some say she has never left the house, which is now part of augusta state university.

    Bang for the buck

    the tuition for the school for in state is around 2.000 per semester which is very affordable compared to other college and universities in the state of ga. the tuition and fees cover everything from parking, events that are held throughout the semester, use of the school's gym and other facilities. for students that have georgia's hope scholarship, it is roughly around $40-200 dollars per semester to attend without books. just remember now if you are enrolled in a learning support class hope will not pay for it. textbooks range roughly around $400-700 per semester but the asu bookstore has a better buy back policy than any other school that i have encountered with its textbooks.

    What to do for fun

    since augusta state university is located in a small town there is really not much to do, especially if your a transfer student. there always bowling, movies, restaurants, some clubs and parties around town. but the school actually every monday has movie day free for asu students. but its best to have some friends that whenever your bored you can hang out with them and do something crazy.

    Food and Dining

    the food is great i personally love it. but the only error is that it is expensive its best to have a meal plan, but if not just go occasionally but at least once to try it out.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life is expensive at any school and here just the same. every year the price goes up a certain percentage. the dorms here are basic not extraordinarily. regular tv, internet, water, heat and basic kitchen appliances. but you there a pool, that one plus because since it is in georgia summers here are way, way too hot.

    Academic Rigor

    depending on your major the school is not too hard just as always do your work, study at 2 hours for every hour in class and complete homework assignments. but this school is known for there nursing and business programs. the nursing program is tough here and expect the best from the students. the business school on the to the other hand, gives free coffee and is known for one the best in the state of georgia.

    Tips for prospective students

    before applying to school i suggest coming to visit the campus and get a feel for it to see if it right for. the admission's office works really fast to give you an answer as soon as possible. also if you decide to apply for housing try to do it asap because space is really limited. try to come to class at least 30 hour early, because parking here is terrible. use all the resources the schools gives you like the pig out. which equals free food, the career and academic advisors here just to help you and try to come to class on time teachers here are really picky on that.

    In three sentences

    augusta state university is very small compared to other universities in the state. parking at this school is horrible. on the other hand the hull college of business here has so many resources that other schools in this state do not.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe. The campus police are very nice and always willing to help. If there is a problem reported they are quick to investigate and follow proper protocol.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is active yet not active on campus. The fraternities and sororities are highly active during the fall semester trying to recruit but they soon fall off. ZTA is the most active sorority on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    ASU has many clubs and activities. for students.

    Great for these types of students

    The atmosphere is best for students who want to live in a city but with a home time feel.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is very inexpensive comparable to many of the schools in the University Systems of Georgia. The books are on the higher end but there are buybacks.

    What to do for fun

    For fun students will sit in the amphitheatre and chat with friends or go to the game room and t.v. room for hours upon hours. The are always events hosted bu the Jaguar Activities Board.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is very close knit. Meal plans are offered; however the dining area is not opened on the weekends. Most of the food is unhealthy and overpriced.

    Dorm Life

    The majority of the students that attend ASU live off campus. The University Village is located five minutes away from the main campus. The commuter students usually live in surrounding counties.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are highly qualified as they do their jobs. Many professors are willing to give you good advice and extend you many opportunities to better yourself. Many of the teachers also givve you a list of their office hours and are more than willing to set up an appointment.

    Tips for prospective students

    You should always visit a campus before your orientation. Many college campuses may look good in brochures; in reality you need to use your five senses rather than one.

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University is a smaller campus within the University Systems of Georgia that offers a historic charm. The campus is full of traditional students by day and many non-traditional students at night.

    Campus Safety

    Full time, 24 hour campus police on vehicle and foot patrol. If GA ever gets rid of it's ridiculous law saying college students cannot defend themselves adequately on campus then I will rate this higher.

    Greek Life

    A variety of these options exist.

    Clubs and Activities

    The process for organizing and getting official recognition from the Office of Student Activities can be a pain as they have to be done every semester. However, there are clubs for just about everything with some more active than others of course.

    Great for these types of students

    Students that WANT to learn and complete a degree program. Students that just try to 'flow along' will not like school so they will not do well here. Take that advice from someone that was in that position before.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    ASU main campus is on the site of the Augusta Arsenal (used in Civil War and World War eras). The student center, JSAC is managed by students working while attending class full-time. (like me) This is not common in many student centers.

    Bang for the buck

    By far not only the cheapest 4-year college in the area (INCLUDING ONLINE SCHOOLS), it offers a great deal for the price of attendance, even if parking is a bit crowded at times.

    What to do for fun

    This is a commuter campus. Even with the mutiple Fraternities, Sororities, Campus/Student Groups, Sports, and NCAA National Champion Golf Team there are still medium city clubs, dinning, museums, concerts, etc.

    Food and Dining

    For a small commuter campus, the dinning is adequate with a small cafeteria/station eatery. Sandwhiches, a minimal Starbucks, to order grill, and pizza station combine with premade/prepackaged foods.

    Dorm Life

    Until the 2013 Merger with GHSU (formerly MCG) there is only one off campus, school controlled Apartment Complex with rent in the 600s per month that have to be prepaid.

    Academic Rigor

    This is NOT a hard school as long as you are ready and willing to put in the work needed. Like all schools, you will do MUCH better when you decide you are ready to actually learn and go to class as well as complete assignments.

    Tips for prospective students

    GET INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES ON CAMPUS. Very publicized studies have shown that students do better academically if they do not just go to class and go home.

    In three sentences

    The teachers here want to teach students. If you are ready and willing to both learn and be critical thinkers you should do well here.

    What to do for fun

    While I'm not studying, I like to play my guitar. I sometimes hang out in the Activities Center at Augusta State. Lastly, I'll go to the gym and work out.

    Food and Dining

    The food prices at Augusta State are a little high, but the food is worth every penny. There are some affordable meal at great values. Finally, students can purchase a meal plan and receive extra cash for the meal plan.

    Academic Rigor

    For every one hour a person spend in the classroom, he or she should spend another two hours studying for that class. By spending that amount of time for class a student will never be behind in the class. This is a sure way of getting a A in the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    A student should not let allow his or herself to become stress out. Stress is a good thing sometime but to much stress can burn a person out. Find active ways to relieve stress like lay back on a nice day and watch the clouds.

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University is a great institution of study. It is currently under going a merger with Georgia Health Sciences. I am hoping the merger will allow me to take my studies even further.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt unsafe when working on the Augusta State University campus. It is a safe and secure environment that is constantly being patrolled 24-7 by police officers who are armed and have full arrest powers. Also, emergency phones are placed all over campus to ensure the safety of students, especially the ones who attend night classes or decide to stay up late to work on an assignment.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over one-hundred student organizations at Augusta State University. Concerts, plays, sororities, fraternities, and access to championship NCAA athletics, you name it! There are plenty of activities to keep you busy in your free time.

    Great for these types of students

    ASU is great for any type of student. Students who like a challenge and are ready to experience college are welcomed by this school. Also students originally from Augusta will love its convenience from home. Overall, Augusta State is for anyone looking for a successful career and future.

    Bang for the buck

    Augusta State University is an absolutely beautiful campus with rigorous courses taught by passionate professors and plenty of resources to take advantage of. Students at Augusta State have access to a three-story library, several computer labs, and even 24-hour access to the main buildings on campus. The experiences you'll have there far exceed the price paid to attend.

    Food and Dining

    The food court at Augusta State offers many different restaurants to choose from. Students are offered a variety of places to grab a quick bite to eat in between classes, such as Stacks Deli, Freshens Smoothies, The Arsenal Grille, La Vincita Pizza, and even a Starbucks! Snack and soda machines are also placed all over campus. Not to mention everything is affordable priced!

    Dorm Life

    Augusta State does not have dorms. Instead they offer a more spacious college living experience at University Village, located not far from main campus. A shuttle comes to pick up residents every fifteen minutes, making it really nice for students who do not own cars. University village offers both two bedroom apartments and four bedrooms. UV is also complete with outdoor swimming pool, game room, computer lab, furnished apartments, volleyball court, clubhouse, putting green, and a 24-hour laundry facility. It is also extremely close to the Augusta mall, dining, and Christenberry Fieldhouse, Augusta State's main athletic complex.

    Academic Rigor

    Augusta State University is well-known for its high-standards English department. Even the introductory courses can be challenging. However writing the best paper you can really builds onto your academic foundation. The instructors at ASU are more than happy to take the time out of their day in order to better you and your work. Also, upper level courses such as Botany and Differential Equations really challenge you and the way you think. Staying motivated and pushing through each course will change the way you think, during and after college life.

    Tips for prospective students

    As long as a student stays on top of their schoolwork, they are guaranteed to succeed. Going to class is one of the easiest, yet most important ways to get good grades. Stay on top of deadlines, try your hardest, and take advantage of the professor's office hours. They are passionate and willing to help you!

    In three sentences

    Augusta State is a great college for nearly any student to attend, especially ones who live locally. Other than being convenient to students, ASU provides a multitude of courses anywhere from Ornithology, to Documentary Filmmaking, to Early Renaissance Painting. One of the many advantages to going to this university are the class sizes; a student will never feel neglected by their professor as a result of its impressive student-teacher ratio.

    Campus Safety

    There are several campus security on site that patrol the campus and dorms all day and night. My car wouldn't start one day and they came and started it that morning and that afternoon when I left, so they are very helpful to the students as well.

    Greek Life

    There are Greet Life and clubs that a person can enter, but I'm not familiar with them yet.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs you can join it's what meets your needs, but take your time a choose what's for you and the activities are great, there's the gym, tennis, basketball, soccer and best of all the golf team that we won the National last year.

    Great for these types of students

    Never have to be alone there are several students that are just like you, so get out and look and venture a little, we somehow feel that we are different then everyone else, but there are people that do as we do and think the same, so there's someone that you can have a buddy system with.

    What to do for fun

    We have several functions on campus as well as seeing the different sororities do their step dance. There are several socials that you can get involved in.

    Food and Dining

    Although I live in Augusta, I do go to the Dining Facility and the variety and different restaurants in one location is wonderful and so convenient.

    Dorm Life

    Campus Safety

    There are emergency polls at almost every few feet so you will always be provided with safety on campus. There are even emergency buttons in the dorm room. The police on campus are friendly and they even help if you are having car trouble.

    Greek Life

    There are many different organization on campus for any student to join. There are many cool frat parties that go on also.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a huge amphitheatre outside, this is a great area for students to interact and sit in the sun to relax or do school work.

    What to do for fun

    It is fun at the bowling alley on Wed. they have dollar bowling. If your twenty-one downtown is also a popular spot to have fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Augusta State is average and expensive so getting a meal plan would be the cheapest thing to do.

    Dorm Life

    I dont live in the dorm apartments but i would say do not go to every party or hang out everynight.

    Academic Rigor

    It is important to study, study, study and make good grades so scholarships can be kept and maintanined.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise prospective students to handle all financial aid issues before coming to the college and also know what major to pursue before coming.

    Campus Safety

    Campus Safety is a plus. Cops are always looking out and send out BOLO alerts when needed. If you need an escort to a class you can call them and they will gladly come.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is very low key after the first two weeks of the Fall Semester.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are several clubs to join at ASU. Activities are always taking place as The activities board is sure to advertise them.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU is very inexpensive compared to other Universities in Georgia. Since the staffers are great at their jobs students do not have to worry about wasting their money.

    What to do for fun

    For fun students spend a great amount of time in the game room and in the Jaguar Student Activities Center. Students also visit the fitness center to work out during down time. There are several student lounges where you can study or just go to hang out with friends. The Jaguar Activities Board is always advertising the many events that are taking place on campus.

    Food and Dining

    There are a few options in the cafeteria at ASU. The staff works efficiently so there aren't long waiting lines. The food is always fresh and prepared when you order it.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately there aren't any dorms on campus. The school has apartments (University Village) on west campus which is a few minutes down the road. Some of the people in the UV are very friendly.

    Academic Rigor

    Like any other college, academics play a huge role at Augusta State. The staff works extra hard to make sure students are doing their absolute best.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are thinking about attending ASU you should do a campus visit. Using your five senses and not just what you see online will help you make a decision on whether or not you want to attend. The buildings are not far apart so getting to classes in a different building takes no more than five minutes. Most students are commuter students. If you like the feel of a small campus and great staff then ASU is definitely your school.

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University is a small college campus with a home-town feel. It has many historic buildings and landmarks right in the heart of campus. The staff is very helpful and always friendly.

    I like Augusta State but I feel like it is not geared towards nontraditional students at all. It's very hard to find evening classes once you start working towards your major. Other than that, I feel like all of the professors I have had have been great and I like the school overall.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in a dorm room. But from what I've heard from a few of my friends its not so bad as long as you stay on a budget

    Academic Rigor

    I did well my first semester, but I got a little cocky and failed my second which forced me to transfer to Georgia Military to bring my grades and GPA back as well as my confidence. I'm attending Augusta State University this fall.

    Tips for prospective students

    For students who will eventually attend Augusta State University, don't procrastinate, make sure turn your work in on time and if you don't understand something don't hesitate to ask the teacher for help.

    Campus Safety

    There are stations to report and ask for help all throughout the campus. Security is on the grounds 24/7 and routinely checks buildings after class hours.

    Greek Life

    We have several fraternities and sororities on campus; but we have no frat or sorority houses you would see on bigger universities.

    Clubs and Activities

    A wide range of activities and clubs are available from Pro-life groups to religion groups, to art clubs, to gaming clubs, to political clubs. There is always something going on on campus through these many groups.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who don't like big crowds of people. Students who are more personal. Students who like small study groups and more interaction with a professor.

    Bang for the buck

    For in-state tuition, it offers a great deal for what you pay!

    What to do for fun

    There is a Student Activities Center devoted to lounging for students. In there is a game room with pool tables, ping pong tables, xbox games and a complete fitness center. There are also many chairs throughout the building for rest and enjoyment between classes.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good, just expensive. We have sandwiches, a grilling station where you can order burgers and hotdogs and other grilled things, a pizza station, a java station with Starbucks. I would reccomend bringing your lunch some days!

    Dorm Life

    There are currently no dorms on campus at the moment. There is however, off campus housing and as far as I know the facilities are relatively nice with an open living room with a kitchen and four rooms and two bathrooms.

    Academic Rigor

    The science and english departments are well known for being relatively difficult. I cannot speak for the other departments, but the school is nationally accredited and (as I type this) in the process of becoming a research school by combining with the local Medical College Of Georgia.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come eager to learn and grow beyond academics. There are many opportunities to meet people, take them! Also it helps to become friends with your professors, they can help you out later!

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University is an awesome University to get your foot in the door of the campus lifestyle. The college is relatively small, which is great for the class sizes. They offer everything big colleges have from sororiteis/fraternities, several clubs, and personal tutoring; only lack in campus housing.

    Campus Safety

    Campus police is always patrolling the parking lots, or walking around campus to ensure there aren't any disturbances to the students.

    Greek Life

    Greek life exists at ASU, however it does not consume all of the student body since it is a smaller institution. There is an annual Greek Week held annually at the start of every school year.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a wide variety of clubs that students can choose from and join.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Almost every month, student clubs hold a Pig Out which is a free barbeque for students. Also during Homecoming week, a Greek Day is featured in which all the fraternities and sororities represent their house, and perform for the students.

    Bang for the buck

    Any educational institution should be considered a bang for the buck. Receiving an education is very important, and any school that provides a worthwhile experience should be credible. At ASU, the curriculum is very rigorous, especially since the recent merge with Georgia Health Sciences University.

    What to do for fun

    The student center has game and tv rooms, a gym, and a lounge of massage chairs, so you can definitely go there to relax during study breaks.

    Food and Dining

    There are only two main cafeterias on campus, a very large one located in the student center, and another smaller one in of the main classroom buildings. The larger one is divided into about 6 different restaraunts offering a variety of food styles. Campus food can be a bit pricy, and can either be tasty or not so worth it. I usually pack my lunch everyday, so I do not have to worry about buying lunch at school. However, students can purchase a meal plan and the money will be on the student's ID card, which can be used while purchasing meals.

    Dorm Life

    I personally commute to the university everyday, so I have not had the opportunity to either visit or live in the dorms. ASU has student apartments that are called The Village, and are located 10 minutes off of campus. They have a security gate, so it is only accessible for students only, as well as having a security officer on site 24/7. The only complaints I have heard from residential students is that the rental prices are bit expensive, and there have been some break-ins despite security being on site.

    Academic Rigor

    From my personal experience the English, Math, and Science departments are exceptionally challenging. If you are majoring in any of these subjects, be prepared to work extra hard and maintain your grades. Although these classes can be difficult to handle, each of these departments cater to student resources such as tutoring centers for extra assistance for students, and students should fully take advantage of any help granted by the university! Also, professors can be very helpful as well, so take advantage of stopping by their office during their office hours, as well as asking questions in class when you don't understand something.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students need to be ready for the workload amount that is expected with the rigorous curriculum. Be prepared each time you come to class, and set your priorities for study time. Time management and learning how to balance academics with your social life will be difficult, but having the two together will not result in successful grades, as well as procrastionation. A very important piece of advice for new students is while you take your academics seriously, you should also make sure that you enjoy your college years!

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University is a public, liberal arts university that has recently merged with Augusta's top medical college: Georgia Health Sciences University. Although it has a small campus, it has a diversified student body, and offers a variety of degree programs. A fun fact about this university, is that it is actually the oldest institution in the state of Georgia!

    Sororities: Alpha Delta Pi, Zeta Tau Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and Zeta Phi Beta Fraternities: Omega Psi Phi, Delta Chi, Phi Beta Sigma, Kappa Alpha Psi, Alpha Sigma Phi

    Clubs and Activities

    ASU has over 50 different active clubs and organizations, including different sororities and fraternities and an Honors alumni. This university also offers access to volunteer activities and opportunities that take place off or around campus such as Take Back the Night, Take Back the Day and the Augusta Warrior Project to help veterans and their families.

    Great for these types of students

    Any individual that wants a well rounded education, wants to major in English, wants access to numerous fraternity or sorority opportunities, or wants to try something new at a school that just completed a merger this year can find a good home here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Bellevue (meaning beautiful vista), formerly a summer home for Freeman Walker, a former U.S. Senator and mayor of Augusta is used as an administration office. The campus has incorporated salvaged parts from the arsenal that used to be in Augusta.

    Bang for the buck

    Overall, I thought the price for the school was reasonable, and it's easy to apply for an Out-of-State Tuition waiver or apply for the In-State HOPE Scholarship or Zell Miller Scholarship. Unfortunately, since its merger with the Georgia Health Sciences University the university has not only changed its name, but also increased its tuition. However, it is supposed to offer many new opportunities for students as it goes from being a small, liberal arts college to a full-blown university stretching across multiple campuses.

    What to do for fun

    Join one of the clubs or the Greek Life, or drive down the street to Forest Hills park or the Augusta Mall. The university offers a free movie night every Monday and free theater showings on campus. If you're into golf, the Masters is held every spring just miles from campus.

    Food and Dining

    ASU has a food court and the dining services are run by the company Sodexo. The food court includes a Starbucks, a Freshens, an Arsenal Grill, a LaVincita, a Stacks Deli and a simply-to-go. The menus include gluten-free, local, organic, vegetarian and vegan options. And if you want more junk-food style meals, you can find them there, too. Their cheese fries are amazing.

    Dorm Life

    ASU owns a small community living area called University Village. You can live in 2 or 4-bedroom apartments and get free internet, pool access and 24/7 maintenance. There is also a shuttle that runs between UV and the campus and the prices are reasonable. The only problem with it is that because the community features apartment-style living, it is more difficult to meet people at this location and the roommate questionnaire is not that great. However, there are some community events and for everything that it does offer, it was definitely worth getting an apartment there.

    Academic Rigor

    There is a lot of new information to process on any given day, though each professor's teaching style is different. Augusta State University is known for its English program. Beware though, because English 1101 is the most failed course that this university offers. There is also an excellent Honors Program I participated in, and I'm so glad that I did. It really helps you to become a more well-rounded student.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved! Sure, you probably hear that from everybody, but because this is a smaller campus, this could prove very important. This college has a lot of clubs and extra curricular activities you can participate in and there are always ads posted for ways to get involved. The best way to meet people is to get familiar with the study halls and the JSAC across from the library where you can enjoy multiple dining options with vegetarian and vegan-friendly cuisine and attend workshops and seminars.

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University (now Georgia Regents) has a large variety of majors and minors. It is the home of the nation's most outstanding ROTC program with a jaguar as its mascot. As an added bonus, it has a beautiful, historical campus.

    Campus Safety

    Since we have our own campus, we don't have to worry about a huge amount of non-college traffic. Even still, there are panic buttons placed all around campus and police are always on duty. We've had relatively few incidents, and most of those are thefts- so just be smart, lock up your things and keep them out of sight.

    Greek Life

    Several frats and sororities for a wide variety of individuals, whether you're the classic frat boy, a multifaceted female looking for opportunities to help you along the way, or one of those complicated individuals that can't be pinned down in anything.

    Clubs and Activities

    Fairly active clubs, fairly wide variety, lots of opportunity for growth.

    Great for these types of students

    Science, Health, Biology,

    Bang for the buck

    To those with HOPE and Pell Grant, this school will end up being fairly inexpensive and provide all the enriching opportunities of a state school without the big price tag. However, without these scholarships or some kind of waiver, the student fees will get you.

    Food and Dining

    ASU has a cafeteria that serves five different kinds of food: smoothies, subs, grill, southern meal, and pizza. It also has a cafe that serves pre-packaged food, hotdogs, soup, and various other snacks. These choices have the potential of getting old, but the prices are fairly reasonable and the meal plans will save you some money. They are fairly conveniently placed, but close in the early evening.

    Dorm Life

    Since ASU partners with an apartment complex for their dorm accommodations, the dorms are quite nice in comparison to many in other schools. The dorms are apartment style with four rooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. I think this system is conducive to growth in young college students, creating a situation where they are encouraged to live on their own without many of the stresses of independent life.

    Academic Rigor

    I've found my program, Fine Arts, to be wonderfully challenging and informative. It has pushed me to discover things that I would have never tried before, and given me the tools to be successful- in my field, and as an individual.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students thinking of coming to Augusta State University should know that ASU has a place for pretty much everyone, but will be especially beneficial for Health and Science students. Students who don't know what they want to do will find a wide range of possibilities at ASU.

    In three sentences

    Though it's currently experiencing a few bumps as it tries to merge with Georgia Heath and Sciences, Augusta State is a school devoted to improvement.

    ASU offers so many fun activities - movies, plays, athletic games, etc. If you get bored then you just want to be bored. Check out Morris Museam on Sundays - Free! There is a little of everything and we are in the ideal spot if you need to travel for other activities.

    It's fun just to walk around on campus, there's a lot of history considering it used to be the Augusta Arsenal. There's a fitness center, and a big field for picnics, frisbee, or kickball!

    Food and Dining

    Right now, all we have is the food in the JSAC and in Allgood, that are over priced and not a very good selection, but I know this will be changing in the future after the consolidation.

    Dorm Life

    As of now, the only on campus housing is University Village, which is apartment type living. But, in the future they will be building dorms on the Walton Way campus.

    ASU is a wonderful place to get an undergraduate degree. It's small enough for one to one contact with professors and to befriend everyone in your department, but big enough to still get the college experience.

    For fun I go to the campus events. There are lots of things that you can do on campus. Things range from just laying out in the sun relaxing to enjoying the multiple events that are hosted there.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining are exceptional. You have a variety of foods to choose from. The dining area is a huge area where you can just hang out with friends and meet new people.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is wonderful. It teaches you responsibility and it gives you a sense of what living on your own is like. Plus there is a pool here and there are many people who are very friendly and welcoming.

    Academic Rigor

    The English department may be a little challenging but as long as you ask questions and take good notes you will be fine. The other classes that I have taken have been extremely easy. Basically you have to pay attention and take good notes on the lectures and read the text.

    Great campus police staff. They understand that we are college students that want to have fun, but keep us safe at the same time.

    Small, but growing! Greek Life is extremely positive here at ASU. All Greek Students have the highest gpa's in the University and overall are better known throughout school.

    Clubs and Activities

    Many clubs and activities to choose from, with a wide variety!

    Great for these types of students

    Students leaving home for the first time, that are interested in a small college experience with a lot of volunteer opportunities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Pig Out is an event every semester, that is probably a student favorite. The entire campus gets to 'pig out' on free food, mingle with fellow students, and enjoy fun things like moon bounce, cotton candy, and carnival games!

    Bang for the buck

    Not much to do at first glance, but if you become involved, it will be a great overall college experience without the distractions of a big university.

    What to do for fun

    In town there is a bowling alley, movie theatre, ice skating and roller skating rink, and other rec. activities. Campus life was better this year, so I expect that it will continue to improve to create that college feel.

    Food and Dining

    The town has many food options, but the University has very little options, and prices are very high. There is also no meal plan available for students.

    Dorm Life

    There is only one apt. complex that the school owns currently. Rent is pretty expensive, and the office staff is not very friendly.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are extremely challenging, especially literature and science courses. It is known for being Little Harvard on the hill. However, teachers work with you to ensure your success.

    Food and Dining

    Augusta State provides in-campus dining that provides exceptional entrees of food varying from subs and sandwiches to home-style cooking. There are many choices that anyone could choose from which makes dining much more satisfying.

    Dorm Life

    The housing Augusta State provides is spectacular. They provide apartments for students including two bedroom and 4 bedroom apartments. This is one major difference from other colleges as they have dorms inside their campuses while the apartments are about two miles away from campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors at Augusta State want their students to strive for success and the school provides a variety of tools needed to aid students in the help that they need.

    Tips for prospective students

    If anyone would want to go to a lively college where it is lively and fun, then Augusta State University would not be the right choice as it is mostly the opposite of this description.

    I've always felt relatively safe on campus even the few times I was there at night. It's heavily lit in the evenings so you don't have to worry or fear walking back to your car. And the campus police are extremely friendly and there at all times.

    Bang for the buck

    You get what you pay for and the tuition is pretty cheap compared to other colleges in GA. They have good programs for those in the medical as well as the education fields. Though I do wish they offered more majors that deal with ethnic studies/cultural studies. For this price you would do very well here.

    Food and Dining

    I haven't eaten in the dining hall except for on the day of orientation but from what I've heard their pricey but not bad. Then again, nothing compares to a mother's home-cooked food anyway!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life does not exist here as ASU has no dorms, it's just a commuter school.

    Academic Rigor

    Whether your one of the smart kids or the not quite to that level student, ASU has a good balance of hard/essay classes. The best classes to take for GPA boosters are ASU 1000 & POLS 1101.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you lack in reading/writing skills you might want to prepare yourselves for the English courses. While I love the challenge of writing an 7-page essay for those not so thrilled about English might find it a bore and extremely difficult. Just be prepared to study hard for English as ASU (or GSU) is known to have hard English courses.

    You can get involved with the greek life or just join one of the regular clubs such as choir. There are plenty of activities and events that take place throughout the year that you can attend and take part in.

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of restaurants on campus at pretty affordable prices and it's easy to pay for it with your jag card as long as you keep money on it. I prefer to eat off campus because it's faster and cheaper.

    Dorm Life

    Strong community with a lot of group activities. The apartments are very nice and comfortable for studying or just hanging out with friends. There are plenty of fun things to do such as swimming at the pool, playing pool, walking the lighted trail, etc. There is a 24 hour computer lab offered with printing capabilities and the laundry mat is in the room next to it so you can wash and dry your clothes while writing a paper online.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers and courses here are very challenging but as long as you pay attention you should be fine. Study whenever you have the time and never procrastinate because it will come back to bite you in the butt. If your not a morning person don't sign up for the early classes in hopes of clearing out your schedule for the rest of the evening. You will do your best if your wide awake and well rested.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get in with early admissions and make sure to apply for scholarships offered as soon as possible. If accepted, complete the math placement test ASAP so that you can sign up for orientation. The the sooner you sign up for the that, the better pick of classes you have.

    Campus Safety

    There are several campus safety officers who patrol both the campus and the dorms. They are all extremely nice and maintain a safe learning environment.

    Greek Life

    There are a few Greek organizations at ASU. They're not quite like what is depicted on tv or in movies. The Greeks do not have sorority or frat houses. They're more like a regular club where you can network with like-minded people.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a lot of clubs at ASU, however, finding information on them (meeting times, events, etc) is next to impossible.

    Great for these types of students

    ASU is great for a wide range of students. Quiet-types who prefer to be alone can easily find a spot on campus or at the UV where they will not be disturbed. There are also lots of clubs and parties and campus events which can appeal to more sociable people. It's also perfect for the student who wants a good education but cannot afford the more prestigious schools.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    ASU always holds a Love Your Body week which supports your self-image and self-esteem. There is also Retreat Week for freshmen where you attend several seminars and activities meant to prepare you for your transition into college life.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU is the economic choice, for sure. But if you're expecting an experience like you would get at UGA, you will be disappointed.

    What to do for fun

    Augusta is a very big town. There are a lot of great restaurants like Nacho Mama's and the Village Deli. Also, there are cute boutiques hidden away around the city where you can score some really cool finds.

    Food and Dining

    There are two dining areas at ASU. Both are ideally located but only provide half-decent food which you'll pay an arm and a leg for. There aren't really traditional meal plans at ASU which can make eating at the dining halls very expensive because you'll pay out of pocket for it all.

    Dorm Life

    Even though the design is great (all apartment style, you will have your own room and bathroom), there is no sense of community at the UV. The RA's don't really care what you do or about you, they're just doing it to fluff their resume. The office staff are alarmingly unfriendly and typically the only person you can get in contact with are student employees who lack professionalism. They do attempt to have some events at the UV, however, don't expect these to draw a large crowd or really be much fun at all.

    Academic Rigor

    Your professors will expect a lot from you. Don't expect to float through your classes without any effort. However, most of the professors will try to work with you to ensure your success in their course.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go on a tour! The professors are extremely nice and it's very easy to set up an appointment with a department head while you're there. Also, don't get too tripped up on SAT scores or GPA. ASU is interested in who you are, not just your stats.

    Unfortunately, the dorms are off campus so in order to get food you would have to catch the shuttle bus or drive to campus. But there are many grocery stores and fast food places around the area.

    Sad to say that I did move into the dorms this semester but I surely intend to my sophomore year. On the other hand, I have been to our dorms plenty of times, which are called the University Village or the UV. The UV is very nice, not the typical dorm, it has more of a apartment style to them.

    Academic Rigor

    Augusta State University is academically challenging I will admit, but you are not alone professors are always there to help you. Work load can be a lot to handle if your not good at time management and wait until the last minute. But when you achieve and pass your classes the hard work will be worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students is to try your best to not procrastinate on assignments. The work load can be very heavy, but if you maintain a schedule through the week and stick to it, you can finish. Lastly, have fun! But remember your purpose for being in college is to get an education.

    In three sentences

    Augusta State University (ASU) is a high spirited and academically challenging school.

    There is really good food on campus. There is a grill, a pizza shop, a sandwich shop and a starbucks in JSAC. You can get a meal plan at the beginning of the semester which will save you money if you plan to eat on campus.

    University Village is very nice. You have room mates and that can always be difficult. You have to pay your rent for the entire semester up front. The dorms are not located on campus. They are not too far away and there is a bus that will take you back and forth from campus.

    Like any other school there are some courses that you will fly through very easily, but most classes here are difficult. You must be willing to devote time to studying or there is no way you can get a degree at this school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Plan to study. There is plenty of time to have fun, but most classes here are very serious and if you are not willing to study you will not pass. Get to know your professors.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay, not the best however the staff is incredibly friendly and hospitable.

    Dorm Life

    There is no on-campus housing which is hurting the cohesiveness of the campus community.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on the professor and the class, some professor really push you to learn the material and walk away with a deeper understanding of the content and some just pass you through like cattle.

    Tips for prospective students

    Network with other students as much as possible, its not easy on a commuter campus like this universities but it is essential in any college to know who your peers are and how you can help each other. Take every class seriously, show up, do the work and learn the material. Its not about the grades, its about the content. good grades are a bonus.

    In three sentences

    Transition from Augusta State to Georgia Regents University has been handled haphazardly and the stress its caused shows in the faculties performance and demeanor. School should focus on expanding and combining its two campuses and providing on-campus housing for students as well as integrating with the local community. Students should have more of a say in what they want and don't want on campus, decisions are being made without students input or consent.

    Tips for prospective students

    Weigh your options with food and take advantage of all the school has to offer.

    In three sentences

    The campus is small, so if you have a bad schedule with back to back classes, you can make it to them on time. There isn't a dull learning experience because the teachers do their job and make the experience interesting. The people are generally friendly.
