What Students Are Saying

3.84 Average Rating
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.
