at Augusta University
The Arsenal Bell is rung three times at the beginning and end of every Convocation and Commencement Ceremony. The bell was part of the U.S. Arsenal property acquired by the Junior College of Augusta in 1957. It serves as a resounding celebration of our past, present and future.
Honoring our university’s history, Augusta University's History Walk is a one mile loop around our beautiful Summerville Campus. A wide brick walkway guides you along historical markers including the restored arsenal guardhouse, circa 1866, and our gorgeous southern landscape.
During orientation as a sign of good luck and new beginnings, students throw a penny in the fountain at the entrance of the Summerville Campus. When the fountain is drained for cleaning, the money is collected and given to the AU Foundation for student scholarships.
One of the unique and endearing qualities of our president, Dr. Brooks A. Keel, is his tech-savviness. Any time you see the president on campus, he is always willing to take a selfie with students, faculty and staff. Check out his latest selfie activity on Twitter @PresKeel.
Founded in 2018, the President’s Spirit Cup is awarded to the college showing the most school spirit based on various interactive activities including office decorating, banner creation and game attendance. The cup travels with the winning college for the year.
Fridays are good, but they’re even better when you get to wear your Jag gear. Spirit Fridays give faculty, staff, students and alumni the chance to show their school spirit by wearing their Augusta blue and grey.
Don’t have enough Jag swag? The JagStores are fully stocked, the Summerville location is open until 7p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.
Held each year in November, Day of Service is a special day each year when the faculty, staff, students and families of Augusta University come together to positively impact our community through meaningful service in partnership with a wide variety of community partners across the River Region.
The Augusta University Ring includes the iconic shield surrounded by the university’s name and founding year. Elements of the ring pay tribute to the history of Augusta University and allow customizations to celebrate the individuality of each student.
Rings are available from Jostens.
