Aurora university has overall grate professors that are willing to help out their students. They communicate well with them and give them solutions to their questions. However, some professors should be checked more often they don't teach or aren't prepared for class. To which having course evaluations at the end of the semester are great that way students can give their honest opinion on the course.
If you're looking for a true college experience, then I strongly encourage you to look elsewhere than Aurora. After going through my 4 years here, I concluded that the school is much better suited to cater to the non-traditional student rather than those coming straight out of high school. It felt that some of the programs there were simply formalities, there were students in my classes who were already masters in their field and just needed/wanted that piece of paper. While I did have some terrific professors and financial aid was generous, the campus size, atmosphere, and student body failed to fulfil what I was looking for in a post-high school experience. There are other smaller schools in the area with better facilities and reputations that are able to meet those needs; I would have transferred however I was too tied up with the generous financial aid to make a move. Overall, you can either go to Aurora or you can go to college, and trust me you want to go to college.
My experience at Aurora University has been fulfilling and empowering. My professors and staff at AU are encouraging and helpful with any educational challenge I face. My courses have been interesting and taught well. I would recommend AU to anyone looking for a well-rounded and accepting school.
I have been able to further my education while playing lacrosse. I have had an amazing experience in class, at practice, and as a student worker. There are so many things I enjoy about AU, including the small atmosphere, lots of activities, and close relationships I have formed with numerous people.
Overall I like the University. The school has an amazing campus and very close to home, it is actually located in my hometown.. They have a very diverse campus which is something I really appreciate.
The process of admission went smoothly. Knowledge is abundant among the staff and faculty. The faculty is very knowledgeable in their subject areas. I've made so many friends since I've been here. This is a great place to get your degree.
passionate, focused, freer oriented... Aim to be CRNA. Stepping stone is MSN to NP to CRNA.

It was great! Small classrooms and the professors were always available for extra discussions. Small campus.
I really enjoy Aurora University. I am able to work classwork around my work and family, Faculty is extremely helpful.
Aurora University is truly an amazing school. They want to make sure that you feel like an actual individual at their school versus just a number. The only thing they could change is giving more information to incoming freshmen regarding what their next 4 years is going to look like in the classroom and not just in their dorm/on campus. As a freshmen I am very concerned about class rigor and I have not been given a lot of i formation about that. Overall it is a beautiful campus with very helpful staff and a warm environment.
I liked their wide variety of programs, especially for healthcare! The fact that it's a smaller school holds a lot of pros and cons. Its nice as you have a closer connection to your professors and peers but it also makes it harder to create a well-working schedule as classes can be offered only at certain hours or fill quickly.
My experience at AU has been eventful. Campus has so much to offer from resources, activities, and opportunities. I've made life long friends here and it's only brought me so much closer to my career goals. One thing I would like to see change in is the amount of parking.
Every staff member at AU has been crucial to my success in college. I have had support and guidance from enrollment, to classes, financial questions, professors taking time to explain assignments, and technology support when I have had trouble. I am grateful for all the staff members at AU and thank you for such a rewarding experience.
I enjoy the environment. It is great at having a routine and planning events as well as important final schedules. The campus is great as it’s relatively small yet spacious enough for a multitude of career paths and classes. I can always count on making it to my next class within 15 minutes but also know a quick bite is near If needed. I think the school also does great in sending emails promptly and keeping students informed. The only issue I’ve seen recently is the abundant fake emails that get sent once in a while meaning the security system is lacking.
Aurora university was one of the best choices I made, all the teachers i have had so far have been extremely supportive and i definitely feel like i belong there. all the staff there (counselors, campus life, etc...) have been very helpful and i have only had positive experiences so far.
i like the connectedness between the staff and students. you do not feel like a number and everyone is super personable and understanding. i am very grateful that i chose aurora university.
Aurora University helped me achieve my set goals and my mission statement. I graduated with a good understanding of the work after university
I transferred to this school after two years at my local community college and it has been a huge disappointment. Most professors I have had are terrible at teaching and it feels like they make up their lessons as they go. The price for this school is also insanely high for what you are getting and counselors will not help you with that no matter how bad you are struggling. There is literally no parking here throughout the morning so it makes it very hard for commuters to make it to class on time even when you get to campus 20 minutes early. I wish I did not pick this school and would not recommend to anyone else.
I liked how the classes are small enough for your professor to remember your name, and get to know you on a personal level. The school itself gives students a lot of resources to be able to flourish once they graduate.
So far the experience is good I feel as a commuter I don’t get to experience the college life but the college itself is amazing sometimes I feel they over price a lot of things or hide certain fees to get money but beside that the school and teachers are great
