Ave is located in a great place, but was far if you like to drive to local places. Academics and the professors were very good.
Small student body makes it feel like a community. Strong focus on the Catholic faith but it is not pushed in a way that makes non Catholics uncomfortable. High percentage of the student body are student athletes. The main negative is that it is a very small town and far from a large city so sometimes I get bored since the campus and town are both small.
Small School. The goals they have for the school are great. Not for everyone, but still a good school. Located in a great state!
I love going to Ave Maria. It is a small town that is a home away from home. The professors are great and all of the lessons incorporate together.
Ave's got a wonderful culture and professors that really care about you. If you want to succeed, this is a place where you can do so. It's a bit isolated, but is good for an education.
Education was average. If anything, it was easier than high school. The professors were hit or miss on difficulty as some required more work than others for the same class. If attendance didn't count for a grade, I would have skipped all my lectures as it was going over the readings most of the time. Although some material was only taught in-person which I found annoying. Nothing happens at Ave since it is located in the middle of nowhere. There was black mold in Goretti Hall in a 3 man dorm during my time. One of the residents in the dorm had mold in his lungs and was sent to the ER. I was in Sebastian Hall, which did have problems. There was word going around about the 3-man dorms becoming 4-man for the upcoming year, which was already cramped with 3 people. The food there is terrible; rubber meat slathered in weird sauce, hit or miss pizza. The only food worth eating is omelets for breakfast and deli wraps/sandwiches/quesadillas for lunch/dinner. Town's food is overpriced and bland
Great school. Absolutely love the professors, they are great at what they do. Academics are challenging but worth it. The Catholic faith is very integrated into campus. A few issues with the bursar and academic advising, but got cleared up relatively quickly. I am very blessed to have been able to attend Ave.
What I enjoy the most is the campus, watching the sunrise and the sunsets. Going to the gym and share time withe the people
Ave Maria University has a special place in my heart. Stellar professors and awesome student life. The location is not perfect but as someone who grew up in a rural community, it is perfect for me.
A haven for group think and high school maturity. Only pluses are the amazing politics and theology faculty. Transferred out as a junior and do not regret it one bit.
Have had a great time people are friendly and nice. the days go by fast because the only things do to are on campus and it is a far drive to anything of campus but it is a great place especially if you want to get closer to god.
I love the community of the faculty and students, and how engaging the professors are and their passion for what they study.
The environment at Ave Maria is one where someone can experience greater freedom in pursuit of the liberal arts. Personally, my studies of the classics and the core have only increased my desire to connect everything to my pursed major and to my life. Since many know that knowledge for the sake of knowledge is the ultimate pursuit of liberal arts, I feel that I too am beginning to taste the beauty, liberality, and joy by continuing on in my studies. I look forward to the coming years and what those years will unfold in my life.
I would definitely recommend Ave Maria University to others. It has been a joy so far being here and the academics give me a challenge that I want to succeed in that I didn't have in high school.
Like any other school that has online classes, there is a challenge to do well. I find it hard to do well but others find it easier. Though I do understand that teaching online can be hard so I would say that the professors are doing a great job in doing so.
Professors make a good effort to make the class engaging. Most of them are able to use Microsoft teams in a good way to show everything that we need to do, and they have been getting better at it since corona hit.
Overall rematch people on the campus. Professors are really helpful. You have to get with the right crowd if people for activities: party, sports, studies. Place is far away from things to do such as bars clubs,Beach. You need a car and if you want to have fun.
The professors are very kind and willing to help, a beautiful campus, and very kind staff. The cafeteria food is okay but could be better haha.
Learning online is difficult, but the professors are working on making online as smooth as possible. Since AMU is usually not an online school the professors have had to make some adjustments to their teaching due to COVID-19.
my overall experience with Ave Maria university is good. the athletics are good. the food is average and the dorms are super nice.
