STUDENT LIFE

Student government, honor societies, service-learning commitments, spiritual life groups – there are so many ways to get involved at Averett. We even have bands, a flight team, and eSports! Many of our organizations are connected with national and international groups, allowing you to further expand your network of friends.

Get Involved

If you are curious, energetic and willing, Averett will match your excitement! Our students get involved early and often, from picking up coffee with friends to pick-up basketball. There are movie nights on the lawn, ski trips, concerts, conferences, major theatre productions and more!

Stay in Shape

Intramural sports at Averett let you compete with other students, faculty and staff throughout the year in team sports such as softball, powder puff football, basketball, indoor soccer and volleyball.

Fall in Love with
Southern Virginia

Students love vibrant Danville, where the revitalized River District has become the “go-to” place for food, entertainment and fun. The city balances international recognition as a technology community leader with easy access to outdoor activities in southern Virginia’s extraordinary natural beauty.

Find Your Home Away
From Home

Averett offers traditional residence halls, suites and apartments to fit a variety of student housing needs. Students who live on campus say they’re more satisfied with their college experience because they make friendships that last a lifetime and feel part of a caring campus community.
