Rockhurst University Reviews
I have had an incredible experience with Rockhurst University so far. I attended in the fall of 2018 to the spring of 2019 and I plan to continue attending there till I graduate in 2022. I appreciate how all the teachers are so helpful and they all go out of their way to make sure every single student recieves the help they need. When I decided to attend Rockhurst University, I was a little apprehensive about my decision due to the fact that I am not part of the Catholic religion however, this did not get in the way of my education and feeling at home. I am currently part of the Rockhurst University Nursing program which has taught me so many great things, overall Rockhurst is an amazing school!
I transferred from a school in Chicago, I chose to go here mainly for the education. The Physical Therapy school here is great, and I really enjoy how every class that I take is applied to what I want to do in the future, which is to go to PT school. As well as having certain clubs and opportunities to get involved around campus and possible interact with your professors (if you decide to attend PT school at Rockhurst). Rockhurst University is great because from your freshman year to your senior year, you will gain a lot of connections with people who either work in the field that you want to enter or can help you be meet someone who is in that field. Service is also a huge part of Rockhurst, rather it be cleaning up the Kansas City area, or working with children and helping them stay active.
I loved the friends I made at Rockhurst University. I liked how small the campus was, it was about a five minute walk to all my classes. Watching our athletic program was always a joy. I was able to talk to my professors one-on-one when I needed to and get help at our student learning center with the helpful tutors that they provided. My roommate became my best friend because of Rockhurst and I couldn't be more thankful.
