Avila is one of the best universities I have been to. I'm looking forwar to be back.
I love Avila. The day I stepped foot on the campus just to visit, I felt welcomed. Before I was greeted the campus just had a welcoming atmosphere and I loved it. I knew Avila was my school the second I set foot on the first step of Blasco Hall as the fountains on either side of me were constantly spraying mist into the humid summer air. I did not want to leave and I prayed to get accepted there and my prayers were answered. So far in school, the visit was out done. The campus is perfect. Not too big and not too small, everything is right there. Not only is the campus small, but if say an individual does not want to deal with the rain or snow, the tunnels are the perfect alternate route for students. The faculty, I do not know where to start. I have never had someone care about my education so much (outside of my family). Every teacher, office worker, janitor wants to see each and every student walk across that stage. It almost brings me to tears. Avila is not just a school trying to get money out of it's students, it wants the best for everyone attending. Avila is the best school. Hands down.
Very nice place although it can be a little deceiving. I wish they would’ve been up front about some issues pertaining to how average the dorms are instead of saying they are great. The theatre program is literally the best around and i wouldn’t trade that experience for anything else
My opinion of Avila University is that it is an overall good school, some programs I believe need more faculty in order to create more flexibility, students are able to have more class options, and things are more organized. But overall the faculty was very helpful in directing me in the right direction and would be more than willing to take extra time to sit down with me if there was any confusion or I needed guidance.

The best advice that I could of given to myself is don't give up, stay true to yourself when making transitions life. Be motivated and prepared to climb that mountain from high school to college implementing the 3 p's; plan, priortize and know when to incorporate play. For example, college life consists of 16 weeks per semester. Most colleges offer on or off campus extracurricilar activities. The personal advice I gave to myself was to develop a routine blocked study schedule as time allows break away from the mundane life of becoming a nerd with no life, by doing that is fun and recreational allows the body to release stress and tension.
Clearly then, college life does not have to be a life chore. When one finds the secret of how to balance one's priority. Finally, transition to stay focus and work to study hard.
Avila is a small, yet fun place to learn.
It was small and personable. The teachers really cared about the students.
Only those who are motivated to persevere and endure to the end.
I wish i had known how small this school was before i came here. It is still a good school
It has litterally took me forever to think a simple answer to this question. I have come to the conclusion that I think I knew was the answer since the beginning. The worst thing about my school? My answer is surprisingly, nothing! It is hard sometimes for students to find a school that fits them, and I am lucky that Avila University was my perfect fit. I could not have asked for a better place to expand my education and my career/goals in life! Surrounded my students and teachers that have one goal: Life long success!
A person that does not like very personal relationships should not attend this school. You are not just another face in the crowd at Avila, so if that is what they are looking for then Avila is definately not the school for them.
Avila is a great place for anyone who serious about earning their degree with a career focus minded individual. When you come be ready to work hard.
Avila is most well known for their nursing program, it is also mistaken for a women only university, but it hasn't been so for about 20 years. However, the nursing program is still thriving.
It is so small that everyone knows everyones business since I live on campus. It makes it very hard to have my own life and live like an individual. Living on campus has definitely made me more stressed and frustrated.
The best people that I have ever met in my life, and will leave a great, lasting impression!
How well the teachers inter act with you
