Welcome to Augusta University! Your Jaguar Nation Welcome program has been designed to prepare new students for college life at Augusta University. Students, family members, parents & guests alike will attend programs with an academic focus as well as programs that will expose everyone to the many student services available on campus. We encourage students to take full advantage of all the programs offered so that you can begin your individual journey with questions answered and full of knowledge about the Augusta University family.
