Augusta University is a great university that has a lot to offer. It is quickly growing in the fields of healthcare and cyber security. Both the Summerville Campus and Downtown Campus are beautiful along with the Augusta University Medical Center that is attached to the University. The college is very connected to the community and holds a lot of events throughout the year and offers a very active student life. The population of students and staff is extremely diverse and knowledgeable.
