Avila University Reviews
Avila is a very great place to be! There's people here from all over the world. It is a smaller university, though. This is beneficial because it gives you more undecided attention and help with or from your instructors, counselors, and mentors. It's also beneficial because it is a way of getting to know your peers better. Also, Avila is a great athlete school so if you're interested in any sport and would like to receive scholarships, it's a perfect fit! Like I stated before, there's people from all over the world here, and most are athletes!
The class sizes are small and students have a chance for one on one with professors. Avila's student advisors are excellent and have much experience with healthcare fields and have a good knowledge of what it takes to excel after life at the university. I would highly recommend anyone interested in the science field to check out Avila, you wont be disappointed. The students are interactive and everyone has a generally decent outlook on school and are willing to participate. It is easy to get along with everyone, which helps to feel comfortable. I have enjoyed my time here so far very much.
My experience at Avila University was overall very good. The university is private and so that makes it smaller than most universities, which was something I really liked. Professors on this campus are more likely to be involved with their students needs in their class and also be able to to recognize that because of the smaller class sizes. That also makes it easier for students to receive the help and attention they need in classes. However, one thing I hope to change at Avila is the maintenance for the dorms. The dorms are nice enough but if maintenance kept up with them a little more than I think it would be better for the students living on campus.
