Augusta University has a small community feel with a lot of perks. The smaller class sizes allow an opportunity to get to know your classmates and the professors. The staff at the University is willing to help you at any time with scheduling, financial aid, or any additional needs you may have. My experience at this college was rewarding and positive.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2018

Augusta University has helped me in my profession as a teacher. I was taught (and currently finishing my degree) methods of instruction which helps me become a more effective teacher. I have also analyzed the reason I teach the way I do as well as analyze the reasons behind the methods of instruction. The professors have been helpful and I get the feeling they really care about me and want me to be successful in the classroom.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The highlights of this school as a whole include the location and climate (especially when placed in comparison to Minneapolis, MN), as well as the size of the institution; in a similar fashion to Goldy Locks, Augusta University it is not too big, or too small - I chose it because it is just the right size for me. Although, the prevailing reason that I chose this particular program has to do with it's quality. The Master of Science in Nursing with a Concentration in Clinical Nurse Leader lasts sixteen months, it demonstrates that it prepares it's cohort for the NCLEX exam through a high passing rate, and the professors consistently are invested in their students - an assertion that is reflected in the program's low drop-out/withdrawal rate. The drawbacks for this program surround it's inherent intensity and the pacing of the material, but I knew this would be the nature of my studies when I accepted my offer for enrollment.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I am in the nursing anesthesia program at GRU. Pros: -The faculty sincerely cares about their students. They devote numerous hours of their personal time for extra study reviews or lab hours to ensure we comprehensively know our material. -The workload is rigorous but that is expected of the only CRNA program in the state. I believe I will be well prepared for my boards when I graduate, as well as feel confident stepping into the OR solo for the first time. Cons: -There is no true campus housing. -The area surrounding the downtown medical campus and hospital is not the safest or cleanest. -PARKING IS EXTREMELY TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE.

Pros: Hi level of support for individualized research; there doesn't need to be a direct research match for admission. Cons: Students need to be proactive in seeking out additional educational/networking opportunities.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a part of the Clinical Nurse Leader program. The staff is very supportive. The program is phenomenal. Although it is an accelerated program, the staff works with you to ensure that you are actually grasping the skills needed to succeed in the field. The clinical professors also are very helpful and the hospital experience makes everything come together.
