You may not always notice it, but many of the students on campus are from completely different regions of the United States, counties around the world, and have different pasts that led them to where they are now.

Most of the weather is good all throughout Spring and Summer semester, adding to the scenery of floral and fauna. In the Fall, it can be a bit back and forth between hot and cold depending on the forecast.

The parking is okay to a certain factor, such as the time of day in which most classes are starting or letting out students. It pays to find parking an hour early.

Campus life at Augusta State is pretty interesting in some ways. There is more to do for those who have a declared major that pertains to furthering one's interest. Other activities includes the area's famous sport: golf.

The general area is peaceful and serene. The atmosphere isn't moody nor is it loud and noisy. General events may occur on campus pertaining to midterm, prevention awareness or support groups(alcoholic, abusive, cancer, etc.), sometimes even rare visits from celebs.

The campus shuttle bus usually takes 30 minutes to make it to each stop. There are two shuttle stops on campus, one at ASU dorms, and another in front of Christenberry Fieldhouse.

I'm not 100% sure about all the details that goes with off-campus housing, but it is well close to the campus.

I apply for financial, however I don't really get the kind of aid I need. I'm trying to avoid using loans right now.

I don't reside in the campus dorms, but I have taken a tour around them once. They look pretty nice.

One of my favorite experiences is the Pig Out event that happens usually twice a year. It comprises of BBQ and entertainment by the fraternity and sorority groups of Augusta State (now GRU).

Health & Safety:
The Augusta campus doesn't have any main gates that bar it off from the outside or anything. Most of the campus is surrounded by old time Civil War brick walls to maintain the campus' authenticity of history. Campus crime is generally low. Since the campus is merged with a major hospital in Augusta (GHSU), one of the special security measures the campus provides is handling pan epidemic influenza. Overall, the college has no major problems.

Some old buildings, some new. The study areas of all buildings are extremely loud thanks to obnoxious people who don't know how to be quiet.

The Greeks do a lot of great things around campus and in the community.

We have three food options on campus - subs, chicken strips/burgers/fries, and pizza. Other than that, you can get a $5 pb&j. The food is okay, very unhealthy and VERY expensive.

We have hundreds of restaurants in town. There is literally something for everyone.

I don't live on campus, but have spoken to several students who live there. I have never heard one negative word about campus housing.

Internships are available for all majors. With our proximity to medical facilities, schools, corporations, etc, there is an abundance of internships available to anyone who wants or needs one.

No concerns about career in my field. Yes I would do it all over again.

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.

I own and live in my own home, so I cannot really comment about other areas.

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

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.
College Junior 2013-10-29T19:15:06Z
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.

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.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
