I am so pleased to welcome you to Augusta University as your new president.
Each of us, no doubt, had other options, and we chose Augusta University.
I’m sure you — like me — were impressed with all that our university has to offer: a collaborative and creative learning environment; state-of-the-art facilities; more than 125 forward-thinking programs in nine colleges and schools; the opportunity to participate in high-impact research, whether you’re an undergraduate or a graduate student; and a faculty of top scholars, scientists, clinicians, and artists, all committed to providing you with a world-class education and a range of experiences and opportunities that rival the very best our nation has to offer.
Not to mention the chance to be part of the Jaguar nation, where we can all enjoy a wide range of top-notch athletic programs as an athlete or a fan — Go Jags!
A world of opportunity lies before you, so pledge to make another choice: Take advantage of the limitless options Augusta University and our Augusta community have to offer. Jump in with both feet, grab opportunities to lead rather than follow, dive deep into research projects, get to know your professors. We, in turn, pledge to be with you and support you every step of the way.
So best of luck in your educational journey, and hope to get a selfie with you soon!
Brooks A. Keel, PhD
President, Augusta University
