3 College Sophomore

Majors: I student taught in high school and it transferred over to Averett. I was given a scholarship for it.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a ton of international students

4 College Sophomore

Majors: You have to have a 3.0 in all education classes to be accepted into the one year master's program

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Yes, you get to student teach in surrounding schools

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Averett was my favorite school out of all the others I visited. Everyone is so friendly and personable. It is expensive but they are very good about giving scholarships.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you graduate from Averett with an education you are guaranteed to be hired in school in the community.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are concerned about the students' education and there is many opportunities for tutoring if needed.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty much all of the surround roads around Averett house students. Housing is cheap but most of the building and apartments are older because Averett is in a more historic part of town.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are athletes, but they are not stuck up and friends with people who aren't athletes. Everyone is seriously friendly at Averett.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Some people really like the Caf but the food is repetitive. You just get used to it after awhile.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Considering Averett is a dry campus, most parties are held off campus but within walking distance. As far as clubs go, you have to drive at most 25 minutes to the North Carolina border where there are two. Danville itself does not have any clubs. Many students go to Greensboro, NC which is 45 minutes away for a bigger city nightlife atmosphere.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If there's one thing Danville has, it's restaurants. In addition to a variety of fast food restaurants and sit down chain restaurants, there are so many local restaurants that just can't be beat in just about any type of food you can think of.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like the elementary education program at Averett because you take classes that truly benefit your major, not classes that seem completely pointless to your future career. I chose Averett because it offers a 5 year program in where you can graduate in one year with a master's degree instead of two (as long as you're accepted into the program).

4 College Sophomore

Academics: In my experience, the advisers at Averett are so overly helpful and will spend as much time as needed with you to figure out what classes you need. Most of the professors are very helpful and will help you one on one in class or provide tutoring sessions outside of class. If not, it is free to get tutoring for any subject in the Student Success Center.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As long as you don't go wandering around downtown Danville at night, you'll be fine. The campus is very safe and I don't know of any incidents that have taken place there.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Averett is a dry campus but they don't search your dorm for alcohol. There are only two room checks a year and you know when they are in advance. You are allowed to have visitors and they don't care about co-ed visitors. They do care about attendance though; this isn't the type of school that you can skip classes all semester and then show up for the exam. The professors take role daily.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You pretty much get the roommate and dorm you choose as long as you talk to residence life. Each dorm is very conveniently close to classes and generally students are close with their suite mates/hall mates.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is one local sorority on campus that is small, but in return the girls are very close and have a true sisterhood which may not always be the case in larger sororities at state schools. The sorority is involved in community work, club fairs, attend conferences/workshops, and regularly hold sisterhood events. They occasionally hold mixers in which in order to attend you must have an invite from a member. There are currently no fraternities on campus, but there have been in the past and hopefully there will be an interest in the future to bring more Greek life to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The North Campus, which includes Averett's gym and athletic fields and classrooms for p.e. credit classes is very new, beautiful and clean. Main campus is definitely older but some classrooms have been redone and include Apple tvs and dry erase board walls, while others look like a typical classroom. A new theater has been built and is absolutely beautiful. The student success center, a place to study and be tutored is new and very nice. The Caf is a new building as well and is very pretty. The bottom floor even has a Starbucks.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you like a small (southern) town where people are friendly and personable, you will love Danville. There are things to do here but if a college student is looking for nightlife such as clubbing you will have to drive to the NC border, which is at most 25 minutes away from campus. There are really good restaurants here and some nice shopping centers. Danville is small though, so someone used to a big city atmosphere might find it more boring.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid but did not receive any award.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not a student athlete, but many of my friends are. Sports are very important at Averett and there is a huge emphasis one each individual sport having a "one team" attitude across campus.

3 College Senior

Majors: The professors are willing to work with you because the classes arent that big so there is more one on one time.

3 College Senior

Majors: Some of the Majors require lots of hours and training but then others you just have to take the classes and get reasonable grades to get into the program.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The school is okay with a lot of things but they will not tolerate drugs and alcohol on a dry campus.
