Rockhurst University Reviews
I have loved RockU thus far. I find my campus extremely welcoming to everyone. Located in the amazing downtown area of Kansas City, you get the best of college life and city life in one. Rockhurst is small, making classes more intimate and professors are always concerned with the whole student. Faith based, Rockhurst offers lots of outlets when it comes to student life. Greeks, fine arts, athletics, student government. Anything you would want is here on campus.
At first I was unsure what to expect when I accepted a scholarship to a small school of only 2,000 people. Looking back now, I would not change my decision of choosing Rockhurst for so many reasons, especially the fact that it is a smaller university. My teachers know my name and class load and are more than willing to help me when I need it. The university gives out great scholarships to their students. Each staff member you meet cares about you as an individual and wants to do their part in helping you succeed.
Rockhurst University is basically high school 2.0. Students are very clique-y, but the excellent professors and education provided make up for the overbearing in-your-face campus environment. Also, the financial aid staff would rather amputate a limb than help you with your financial troubles.
