This will be my first year at Averett University. However, my siblings attended Averett and are now very successful. I am looking forward to my own experience.

Not many students can get an internship. Career center is helpful.

Do not attend this school. It is not what is pretends to be. Sports are a top priority at this school while academics seem to be last. You will not get your money's worth. They will make college life non-enjoyable. Many people transfer after their first semester, some even before that. Which leads to a retention rate that is very low. Do not fall for the amount of aid they will provide. Also they act as if they are a religious institution. For the last time, do not waste your time and money by attending this school.
