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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here, don't know where else I would have gone to college! The community on campus is very friendly and vibrant, we have many activities on the quad. Class size is good especially for the teacher to student ratio. Almost all professors are reachable at all times, and are very helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This was honestly my second choice because I am an active string player (cello) and they did not have a string program until this year where myself and three others created the program and now we are the founding members of the Aurora University Chamber Strings Program. I chose this school because Knox College was 50,000 dollars and AU was only 32,000 a year but they say that price until they look at you GPA and ACT/SAT then they put academic scholarships on it so it would be lower. You can double major/minor (I'm a double major with a minor) and this nice thing that sold it to me was that they had the Museum Studies minor (which they are trying to make a major) in which a lot of schools do not have that major let alone minor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Aurora University is an excellent private institution. With plenty of one on one time with the professors. Getting around is not difficult or a hassle. The parking could be better, but they do try their hardest to make every day enjoyable for everyone.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

My education at AU has been incredible thus far. The professors, class sizes and small campus fits every niche I need to have a successful education. One thing that must be modified for not just myself, but for all AU students and faculty... is... THE PARKING!!! It is so easy to lose twenty minutes of time trying to find a parking spot on campus and usually end up having to park in neighborhoods across and on the sides of the streets. Yes, we are a private University, however, many of us are commuters and do not live on campus or near campus. This can certainly cause many problems such as safety, missing time out of class to park, and even an increased amount of accidents on and near campus due to the cluster.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great school if you're someone looking for a small class size, close relationships with professors, and great friends! All of my professors so far have been amazing, I have developed close relationships with them which is necessary if you want those good referral letters!
