What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful school with a great atmosphere and student life. There are lots of ways to get involved. The professors are amazing, they are always available and they make sure that the students can achieve in their courses. I would recommend this school for being a great small school while in a big city so there is plenty to do!

I think Rockhurst is an extremely great environment to learn in. The watchers are always accessible whenever we need them. I think the liberal arts part is extremely strong and everyone is involved with the life of Rockhurst. We maintain a great successful and friendly campus which brings forth new people who look forward to coming here.

My overall opinion would be that Rockhurst cares about the well being of every student and their future not just money. They really make you feel at home and it’s impordant to them that you succeed. As soon as I discovered Rockhurst I fell in love. There are so many activities to be involved with and service opportunities available in the community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rockhurst University is a very well rounded school. There is a sense of community here that I would not be able to find anywhere else. It is almost unreal. They also care about the students and they never let any Issues we have go unchecked. Academically and socially Rockhurst University is acceptional .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rockhurst University is a primarily white campus that focuses heavily on Greek Life and sports in the social sphere. The diversity it lacks in this aspect is made up for in the variety of fields of study it provides to students. Although the affordability of the school is next to none, if one has the ability to attend, they will find the value of an education here is priceless. The lessons taught both inside and outside of the classroom are enrichment enough, and when paired with a degree from a prestigious Jesuit university that provides numerous opportunities for internships and service to the community, making a life after college is easy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rockhurst has been one of my better decisions. The quality of education is amazing, as all the professors really know their fields and are passionate about the material they are teaching. Some of the facilities are older, but Rockhurst is continually trying to gather the funds to update the buildings or build new ones built on needs. The president, Fr. Curran, is amazing about trying to tend to all of the needs of the school, from new art studios and theatre in our newest classroom building to the plan of starting a new rec center. The school wants each of its students to thrive in whatever their major is. They also have so many resources for the students to use to better learn, to grow, and to experience. The professors, faculty, and staff do what they can to provide the best information and resources for students to be successful in and out of the classroom, during college and beyond.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved Rockhurst University. When I arrived on campus they were super welcoming. The office people are really nice. I was confused because my tour guide never showed me an exercise room, but told me that they are building a new one in the spring of 2019. I wish that their performing arts were better and had active involvement. I also did not get to see an actual dorm room because it was locked. The food looked scrumptious, but I did not eat any. I did not get to peek into a classroom, but I was satisfied about my visit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rockhurst University is a wonderful school. It is academically challenging as they hold students to high standards, but they want students to excel. Class sizes are fairly small, with roughly 30 students per class, which means the teachers get to know the students and become invested in the lives of those they are teaching. If students have questions, the teachers are more than happy to help. Most have office hours, or if those don't work are happy to meet by appointment. Many of the upper division classes (Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, Accounting, Calculus, etc.) have what we call an SI (supplemental instructor). This is a student that has excelled in the class and is willing sit in the class during the current semester and hold tutoring sessions about twice a week to go over what was covered in class. It is a great study tool to help get through those tricky classes. There is a learning center on campus that offers FREE tutoring for nearly every class! You can pop in, or make an appointment! Rockhurst offers a wide variety of athletics including: Men's and Women's Basketball, Men's and Women's Tennis, Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Men's and Women's Golf, Women's Cross-country, Baseball, Softball, and Women's Volleyball. Students are made aware of the games occurring on campus, and sometimes get treated to free food or gear for showing up! If you don't want to play competitively there are also many intermural sports offered on campus including: volleyball, basketball, and softball. If sports aren't your thing, fear not because there are plenty of clubs and organizations to get involved in. Rockhurst offers about 80 clubs/ organizations to join including SAB (student activities board), Voices for Justice, Sororities, Fraternities, Campus Ministry, Active Minds, Business fraternities, PURPOSE, and many others. If there is a club that we don't have and you are interested, you can create it! Rockhurst is known for the Helzburg of Business school, along with many of their Pre-Professional tracks such as Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and CSD. If you are serious about your future, please consider Rockhurst, because they will help you get there!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Really good school. small campus size so its easier to get around. Very friendly environment and always have a lot of events going on. Food is pretty good but lacks variety sometimes. The dorms are OK most of the time but can get quite noisy during quiet hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy Rockhurst University. I love the class sizes; they are typically no bigger than 30 people. The professors are extremely nice and helpful. There are so many ways to get involved in on campus. I also like that the campus is small and compact because it makes it easy to navigate throughout the campus.
