Overall Rating

I enjoyed getting to know students and faculty. Everyone was positive, helpful and encouraging to me throughout my time at Athens University. The Student Government did an excellent job arranging get togethers and fun activities. The faculty and staff were always willing to lend an ear or help in any way they could. I developed real relationships with my Professors and they all really cared about all of their students. Psy Chi was great!
