Averett's Leadership Studies
Averett Student Ambassadors: Student Ambassadors work as campus tour guides and lunch hosts for prospective students and their families when they visit Averett. Student Ambassadors are a select group of special students chosen by the AU Admissions Office.
Student Government Association: Working with SGA, the voice of the student body, is a great way to get involved on campus. Each spring students elect the SGA Executive Board members & Senators who will represent them in the coming year. In addition to working with campus governance, SGA sponsors multiple events on campus during the year. Election packets are made available at the beginning of each semester. For more information, contact the Office of Student Activities.
Orientation Leader: New Student Orientation is an extremely fun experience for our new freshmen and transfer students. Our Orientation Leaders work very closely with incoming freshman to help navigate, assist, and prepare them for their first-year experience.
