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.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the faculty to student ratio. It allows us to form relationships with our professors, and they encourage participation in class, which will transfer over into the workplace. They stress the necessity of communication in any field nowadays. Rockhurst is a good school built on a solid Jesuit foundation, but the students respect all opinions. Sometimes I would say it actually leans a little to the left.

Rockhurst University is a colleg focused on the individual. They strive to build people not just doctors, engineers, etc. There core values of leadership, service, and learning stand true to the everyday campus life. Rockhurst is a place to grow as a person and learn through experiences what you true potential is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rockhurst University is a good regional college. It strives to always follow its Jesuit mission and values and has been making great progress in becoming a more diverse and welcoming community. The student body definitely leans on the conservative side while the faculty is a bit more split down the middle. This may not matter to a lot of people, but for someone who is deeply interested in politics and general uncomfortable discussion, it is important to note. After spending four years here I can say that Rockhurst has brought me a lot of great thing, not the least of it being the profound connections you can make with fellow students, staff members, and professors. Everyone is truly open and the notion of "community" is ingrained in all Rockhurst students and is likely something that also follows all alumni. I am persuaded that those individuals with whom I have a good relationship will be some of my closest allies as I tackle my future. On some of the more administrative and "official" side, however, Rockhurst does not perform nearly as well. In fact, facilities (including on-campus housing) are old and uninviting, school spirit is not well developed, and academics can be lacking at times for individuals who may be looking for a challenge.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I prefer small colleges, and this one has about 3000 undergraduate students in an urban setting, very close to a larger, less academic campus called UMKC. The reputation at RU is very high, with several employers choosing RockU graduates over area colleges for their new employees. Everyone I tell about RU is impressed with it, and it is known for its rigorous academics--not a dumb jock school--so don't come to party, slack off, or just for a sport because this is a QUALITY Degree and it will challenge you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rockhurst has a great academic background and is well-known for their success in post-graduate job placement. The campus community is very diverse and has clubs and organizations for every student of all majors. Faculty and staff at Rockhurst always have a smile on their face and welcome everyone with open arms, making it feel like a home away from home. Rockhurst has allowed me to develop more as a person and create friendships that will last a lifetime.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have loved being a student of RU for the past four years (and I'll be here for two years of grad school)! The professors are amazing and always willing to help their students succeed. There are plenty of extracurriculars and activities that can help you grow as a person and straighten your friendships with other students. Honestly I can not imagine myself being anywhere else! Go Hawks!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I love Rockhurst. The campus is small and beautiful. The professors, with few exceptions, are amazing and will do anything they can to help students succeed. The staff is also incredibly helpful. We do not have football or a marching band or a pool which really sucks and bums me out but we still have fun. Greek life is awesome, and we do not have houses for fraternities and sororities which makes life a little easier I think. The area is a little sketchy, but the placement kind of goes along with our values. Oh yeah, Rockhurst has some awesome values, being Jesuit. Of course you will run into people, as you will anywhere, who just fake it and do not really have a deep faith or care too much about others, but for the most part, we are a really caring and passionate, helpful community. The residence halls kind of suck, but name a school where they are awesome. Also the caf food, as at most schools, does not rock my socks off, and the other on campus dining options keep shortening their hours, so that is an area in which Rockhurst could improve. But all in all, I love it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a freshman at Rockhurst University, I can say that the school has a home-like feel to it. The teachers are available at any time to help you if needed and they are easy the contact. Rockhurst is always trying the get students involved within the school and as the commuter, I feel safe and comfortable.
