Favorite class taken at Averett?

My favorite class I took at Averett was Buyer Behavior. It was there where a learned the psychology behind people’s buying power. I found it fascinating.

What do you love most about AU?

As cliché as it sounds, I love the close-knit, small atmosphere at Averett. I grew up with the mentality that college has to be big, but I wanted real relationships and real discussion in the classroom. I got exactly what I wanted at Averett.

Favorite place in Danville

My favorite place in Danville is Angler’s Park. Right off of the RiverWalk, Angler’s Park allows for some of the best mountain biking in Virginia. It’s also a great place to hike a quick hike right in the middle of the city.
