I chose Avila because they offered my major and also would get to play the sport I was recruited into. They stressed academics before athletics but failed to follow through with that, seem to think they are a D1 college instead of NAIA. The coaching staff is very lacking, it's more like being back in club/high school instead of college, you can buy your way into playing time instead of hard work. Academic advising is also lacking, will be graduating with my degree and have received no guidance for the next step in either graduate studies or starting my career.

Avila University exposed me to many insights on personalities, diversity, religion, and uniqueness. What I enjoyed most about Avila was definitely the diversity. There are so many different kinds of people that attend there, and so many different ways to fit in. So many groups, clubs, organizations, programs, and splits of hobbies.
At Avila University, the education and the quality of people is unparalleled. With the small class sizes and the interpersonal relationship, there is a connection that cannot be replicated in larger colleges. Most graduates leave with a clear path and a wide variety of skills that will carry them into their future.
