It is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church and has been rated as “more selective.” Austin College is a member of the Annapolis Group, Oberlin Group, and Council of Independent Colleges.

A better college than I could have hoped for. It wasn't at the top of my list, but I am extremely lucky that I chose to go here. The vast opportunities, social/volunteer/leadership groups, top-notch educators, research experiences, study abroad options, and much more create an outstanding community.

Austin College is an amazing liberal arts school for students studying pre-med, psychology, or international relations. However, if you are not from a rich family, affording this school is very difficult and you will quickly find yourself accumulating more debt than you ever thought possible. If money isn't a huge issue, I highly recommend this school for its amazing atmosphere and academic programs.
