3 College Junior

Drug Safety: As an older student, I am not interested in drugs or alcohol. I do hear students talking about weed, pills and drinking on a daily basis.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I own and live in my own home, so I cannot really comment about other areas.

5 College Junior

Weather: Augusta is warm most of the year. We may see snow every 3-4 years and usually have 1-2 months of cold weather.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Before our merger with Georgia Health Sciences, life was great at Augusta State. Since the merger and name change (to GRU), it is as if nobody cares anymore. Professors fear losing their jobs, students can't wait to get away from Dr. Aziz and the rest of the staff seems to hate their jobs.

4 College Junior

Transportation: We have shuttles that travel from both campuses as well as to student housing and the athletic facility. The shuttles run every 15 minutes and operate around class schedules.

1 College Junior

Parking: There are over 7000 people on this campus with about 1/3 that many spots available. We need additional parking and/or a parking garage on campus. It shouldn't take 40 minutes of riding around campus to find a spot.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Underage drinking is not tolerated on any of the campus facilities. Parking is a nightmare the first few weeks of school and the campus police do enforce parking rules and will write a ticket.

5 College Junior

Academics: We have a very diverse offering of degree programs.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am a Psych major. The professors in our department are great to work with, easily approachable and want to see all of their students succeed. The classes are not all easy, but it you put in the work, you will succeed.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Like I've said before, the restaurants is what partially makes up Augusta. Nuh Said!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Campus Security are pretty much on duty.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Augusta is the second largest city in Georgia. However, it's a very small city with little attractions and businesses within it's proximity. The public transportation service is awful. The restaurants and shopping centers bring this city to life along with the world famous golf tournament,"The Masters".

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The student body is composed of people with different races, religions, age, and etc. The ethnic background is pretty balance in terms of majority and minority.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The Campus shuttle buses arrive on and off every 15 minutes until 2 pm. Then, the shuttle arrives every 30 minutes from 2 pm until 9 pm.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our school is very unique in my opinion, mainly because there is a lot of school spirit around campus! The school spirit isn't just from the students, but also from the faculty and staff. There are also school events that are always taking place. It's a great way for students to get involved.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the program that I am in and yes I would do it all over again if I had the chance. My career goals actually exceed what I am majoring in and going to school for. I have dreams of making it to the Olympics! It may seem impossible to some people, but it is a strong possibility for me as long as I practice hard and stay focused and determined. I have no concerns with finding a job in my field because there is always a need for computer scientist!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The challenges I encountered were mainly dealing with the difficult content of some of the classes that I am required to take that don't really interest me, other than that if you stay focused, there are no real challenges that are absolutely unbearable. The most important criteria for admissions is to have a decent gpa! The application process if normal and my advice would be to make sure you reach the deadlines for admissions and everything will go smoothly!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the computer science major at my school! The work is challenging. However, I feel as though the teachers do a great job teaching their material and I also like all the hard work will pay off in the future.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Our dorms are off campus so there is honestly no point in looking for anything else. The housing is pretty decent. It is set up like an apartment instead of old dorms where it is all just one room. You have your own room and share a bathroom with one other person and you and your roommates share a kitchen and living area.

Campus Strictness: They are not too strict. You are required to keep you living area clean. They come in for an inspection every month. If there is a fire drill and a student decides not to participate, you have to face the punishment of possibly getting evicted. when you signed your lease and failure to participate in dorm and campus activities could cause you to be evicted and have to pay the remaining bill for the semester. There are always police at campus events to make sure that nothing out of the ordinary happens or anyone that look suspicious is dealt with. Overall, it is a fairly safe campus.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on Augusta State campus. It is a small, beautiful, safe place to be. Just keep your dorm room doors and car doors locked to avoid petty theft. And be warned that Campus Security isn't too happy about throwing wild parties on campus

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Nightlife is for students who are 21 or older is great because if the downtown scene. But there are a few 18-and-older clubs, but not many around in Augusta especially downtown. Your best bet is a house party here or other neighboring schools or with friends that live off campus

Computers: The computer labs at Augusta State are usually crowded at crunch times, like midterms and finals, but besides that, you can always find a computer somewhere else on campus. Most people do have their own computers, and with WiFi, it is definitely nice to have your own. If you don't own one, I don't think it would be a huge problem but a great asset to have.
