What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall this is a decent school if you live in this area, but I do not see the reason other than scholarships for people to come here from out of state. The campus is somewhat right smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood so the campus is small in itself and so is campus life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During every single visit I have ever had, I always felt safe and welcomed by everyone. I always see smiling faces, people hanging out in the quad, tossing a ball around. The new sports complex is my favorite edition to the school, and as a future spartan athlete, I cannot express my excitement to play on the new field with my new teammates. I love the school and everything it had to offer, and I cannot wait for my freshman year to begin!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my second year at this university and so far I have had a great experience. My teachers have been great and my adviser is always available for me to ask questions. What I really like is they allow you to register for classes early, so I was able to register for my last year and a half of school on Monday.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It seems like a great school, everyone is pretty friendly and helpful. The campus is nice and they have many places nearby, they don't have enough parking but the rest of the school is great. The staff seems pretty helpful and really nice which makes you feel very welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I live very close to Aurora University, about 15 away by car. I chose this school because it small and very academically inclined. My classes are often no bigger than 15-20 people and I, personally, love that fact. My professors are always encouraging me to visit during office hours and I always feel like they’re willing to talk to me and help me succeed. I am a History Major and I think that my department is so well staffed for my future career goals. The professors are extremely knowledgeable, not only in their field, but in ways to join clubs, honor societies, or internships that will help further career and lengthen your resume. I am very happy with my undergraduate school of choice and am excited to see how it benefits my future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Aurora University is blessed with an amazing history department and a quite capable art department; I am also aware that the other departments too have professors who are experts in their field beyond compare. There are plenty of free activities both on and off campus, often with transportation provided. Campus is well-maintained and beautiful, but could use more flowers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Aurora University is a good school but I feel like they need to make the on campus stay more fun and lively. The teachers and courses are great. Another thing I would say needs improvement is the on campus food, it’s not very good and multiple students have found weird things in them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Choosing to attend Aurora University is the best decision I have ever made. It is because of AU that I have lived their motto to, "discover what matters and build your life around it." Before I got here, I was lost. I had no idea what my future held, but now, I am sure. It took one appointment in the career services office to clear my path and find what I am passionate about. Usually college students are excited to graduate and be done with school, but all I want is to be here forever.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose Aurora University for a couple reasons, but stayed for a plethora of them. I graduated high school early with no intention of attending college until I knew 100% what my major would be. Within the 2 1/2 years between graduating high school and beginning college, I realized that a lot of my friends attended Aurora University. I would spend most of my free time with my best friend who lived near campus and would even spend our days off riding our bikes to campus and exploring. This sounds cliche, but the atmosphere just seemed 'right.' Finally, I decided that I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. Aside from the time that I spent on campus, I had also heard wondrous things about the education program at Aurora University so this decision seemed like a no-brainer. My mother also attended Aurora University for elementary education and loved it. Unfortunately, she never finished school, so this also felt like a love letter to her. I find a new reason every day as to why I chose AU, and why I have stayed here. Throughout my time at Aurora University I have made some of my absolute best friends, learned more than I could have imagined from the professors, and had so many amazing experiences. Most importantly, I have found my purpose at Aurora University and have since encouraged many, including my younger brother, to attend college here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Aurora University's campus is very small and beautiful. Aurora is like a tight-knit community because of how small the university is. The people are very nice, the professors are great, the faculty is sweet, and the sports coaches are nice. Education wise, I don't really know if I can speak on this but when I visited, I sat in on a Typography & Graphic Design class but I didn't get to see it in full motion. I was there the week before finals, meaning all they were doing was open work time. I didn't really get the full experience but their computer lab was nice. I had a very nice one on one talk with the admissions counselor, a student tour guide, and a professor. They are all very knowledgable and knew how to make you feel at home and that Aurora would be a great choice for you.
