Reasons to join AGU…

Short Bio: Hi guys, my name is Muhammed Fatih ÖZER, I am first year Industrial Engineering student. I want to write my first article about some of the reasons why students join AGU.

Hi, I’m Fatih

There are many reasons to join the AGU family:

Family Spirit and Green Campus: We are like a family because AGU only accepts 150 new students per year at the moment in order to grow efficiently and be able to fully focus on each student’s needs. This situation easily brings a family spirit into our University where all members (students, staff, professors, etc.)

The other thing I particularly like about AGU is its green campus. We really have a small forest in our campus (although we are in the center of a 1,3 Million inhabitants city)! There are many students walking around the park or using their bikes to go from one building to another. Our student village is very close to the University’s main buildings and the dorms are free of charge for successful students).

International Opportunities: Let’s now focus on the International opportunities that AGU offers. We have the chance to have a University Department called “Youth Factory” that took its interesting name from AGU’s history. AGU’s campus has been built on the remains of one of the very 1st Turkish textile factory (80 years ago) that attracted many people/workers from different cities. Today, every campus’ building is being renovated and turned into top-quality classrooms/laboratories/conference rooms/etc. and students come from different Turkish cities and countries to study here.

The AGU Youth Factory provides students with European opportunities to join Erasmus+ training courses. For instance, I was lucky enough to be selected to participate in a training course in Malta last November. It was amazing! Maybe I can talk about it in another article 🙂

New Technologies and Free USA Trips: In AGU, we are not using notebooks because we have MacBooks! Yes, AGU is giving MacBooks to all its graduate students. In my opinion, MacBooks are very useful and we do not need to bring anything else. We take notes and receive our class content on our computers and have all our lessons centralized on the online platform called “Schoology”.

Moreover, AGU is giving scholarships and free 2-month trips to the USA to its best students. Guys, I think you should really consider joining us in AGU.
