Avila University Reviews
I had some of my classes in person and others online, then due to the COVID-19 all of my classes moved to online. The professors work very closely with online students to make sure we are understanding the material as well as possible, and to give us all the same benefits as those who have in person class. The professors at Avila University stay in great contact with the students and work very well with us, even going as far as to have zoom/ phone calls with us if we do not understand something, having open office hours, and willing to extend deadlines if we hare having any trouble. Avila University's online learning is very comparable to in person class, and just as educational!
My experience at Avila University has been very beneficial to me as a person, an athlete and for my future. I grew so much during my time at Avila. The professors and staff are all extremely helpful and personable, and the environment at Avila really feels like a family. Everyone involved with Avila University is willing to go the extra mile for one another. Avila has helped me be prepared for my future after graduation and is so welcoming to those who are looking at Avila, currently go to Avila and are Alum of Avila.
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.
