Aurora University Reviews
Rating 3.61 out of 5 752 reviews
My overall experience has been average at best. Mainly because I am part of the class where covid had first hit and we didn't and still haven't gotten the full college experience.
Great school with a diverse population and staff, a great learning environment, and the professors are great teachers and very helpful when students have any questions or concerns.
It's amazing that the price never changes and the financial is very helpful for anyone who needs help.
Aurora University allows their students to focus on what they love rather than what people think they might. Vocation is everything and we want to build this extended education around the students life.
Zoom was our main platform that we used during Covid-19. Even though it was not the same as a face to face experience, I liked the alternative aspect of learning but there are always complications when it comes to technology.
During these hard times, professors have been understanding and empathetic. They have been just as willing to find time outside of class hours to work with you one-on-one. They have been flexible and accommodating. I think it was just as hard of an adjustment for my professors to move to online learning. I do wish we did more hands on activities, games, and projects like we’ve done in the past. If we have to stay remote moving forward, I hope my professors feel more comfortable and encouraged to find new ways to engage students virtually.
I love Aurora University! I truly have Spartan pride. I love and appreciate how kind and personable the staff and professors are. No matter where you go to school, you’re going to run into some professors you bump heads with. But at AU, the good has always out shined the bad. I have enjoyed building professional relationships with my classmates, professors, and coworkers. AU feels like home away from home — a beautiful campus with quiet corners and loud cheers on the field. I am appreciative of the small, welcoming, and uplifting community we have here at AU. GO SPARTANS!
Transition from in-person learning to virtual during the covid pandemic was very smooth. Class was very well managed and taught reguardless the circumstances.
Glad I choose to attend school here. Feels like a home away from home and I wouldn’t go back and change my decision.
The faculty and staff have done an amazing job with utilizing the resources available and engaging students while learning online.
AU has provided me with so many amazing experiences that prepare me for my career and life after college. The community is extremely welcoming and supportive.
Due to COVID it was actually really well done. I didn’t have a problem doing classes that way. Ultimately I have ready to go back to in-person instruction.
AU is a wonderful university. I really enjoy my time here not only as a student but as a student-worker. This is a very home-y place to attend!
I took only zoom courses during covid and it didn’t feel much different besides being at home. Overall I still Learned and enjoyed it but prefer in person.
The faculty and staff make sure you have everything you need to succeed. They truly make the campus feel like a home and learn who you are as a person.
I have been discriminated against countless times at this school by both professors and administration. If I had enough money and time, I would sue. My money and time would have been better spent somewhere else. Teachers and advisors are awful. Don’t go here for anything health science. Go somewhere else please. Both the exercise science and therapeutic rec programs are trash as well. Save yourself the money and the stress on your mental and emotional health and just go somewhere else.
Online classes are confusing and not worth it. Labs are awful. Save your money and go somewhere else.
I like the "small" feel of Aurora University. Coming from a small town myself, it was nice to get to know other students and my professors on a personal basis instead of just being a "number" at a larger university.
My professors were able to utilize Zoom meetings for remote learning during this pandemic. They did a great job of communicating with all students who were logged in and actively kept them engaged in the lesson.
Aurora university is small and classes are a nice size. Student life isn’t great though, I think they should hold more events on campus.
