Rockhurst University Reviews
Rockhurst is a small, Jesuit school right the heart of Kansas City. Currently working on my accounting degree, I believe that the Helzberg school of business is the best school at Rockhurst. They provide students with ample opportunities for connections in the Kansas City area. With that being said, the area is a bit sketch. Be VERY careful and do not walk to college parties. Always get a ride.
Everyone is very welcoming. Easy to create a relationship with your professors which allows for it to be easier to get help from them when the time comes.
I am a freshman at Rockhurst University and from the second when I stepped foot on campus I felt extremally welcomed into a new "community". Even though Rockhurst is nothing compared to my high school I am excited to be going to school here and looking forward to getting an amazing and highly credited degree.
I'm the parent of a Rockhurst sophomore and feel like the university has been an excellent choice for my daughter, and she agrees. Its a close knit school and very friendly csmpus. Academics are very good with small class sizes. My daughter, who is African American, has made friends of all sorts and is involved in a lot. Sure, it does not have the big school sports scene but the college was top ranked in division two in severals sports. Security seems tight so far and there's a real emphasis on community service. If you want a school where the student will not get lost in a crowd and will get a very good foundation, Rockhurst is an under the radar gem with well respected academics as with most Jesuit colleges. Its not a commuter school even though its in an urban area. Campus is beautiful and not urban looking at all.
Rockhurst University quickly became my home away from home. The small, close-knit community provides you with long lasting friendships, amazing educational opportunities, connects you with professionals, and prepares you for your future career. The faculty and staff are dedicated and love their positions, making the learning environment top-knotch.
Rockhurst is an amazing institution where everyone can find a place to belong. Academics are challenging allowing you to feel like you truly deserve the grades you earn. Residence halls provide a great experience that everyone should try. Administration can be difficult to deal with.
The overall experience is great! The professors really care about how you are doing in your classes and will help you with any questions that you have. It's also like a small community and everyone is very accepting. My first year here is the best, I wouldn't have chosen to go anywhere else!
Academically it is a very good school. The professors really care about the students and want the best for them. Sports are pretty good but there is no football which stinks. There are a lot of ways to get involved with the organizations and different sororities and frats.
Great school. I really loved my time here. The atmosphere is like no other. Everyone here is accepting and nonjudgmental of others. The adjuncts are competent and fair in grading.
Rockhurst University is a small community in a big city. This small school has a big impact in the local community and not only educates students but shows them how to be leaders.
The campus police are very polite and responsive. The employees seem to always be looking out for the students.
The staff works very hard to make sure you are set up for great opportunities. They also help to communicate these opportunities to you and try to make every student aware of the possibilities.
The greek life I have witness so far has indicated it is a positive community meant to build quality relationships.
I have not attended the school long enough to have a true opinion. The little I gave seen has shown me that Rockhurst uses sports as an outlet and a motivator and not a indication of popularity or privilege.
Coming from a larger school I have really grown to love the small school environment. Rockhurst does a fantastic job making all students feel important. While at first I did miss the extra amenities available at my previous larger, public school, I quickly understood the small sacrifices I was making in order to have a more personal and positive experience.
im not really sure i have not been in that process yet
hard to live where you want on campus
needs updated equipment and areas!
amazing!!! the small school environment makes finding help when needed very easy and quick. professors know us by name and remember us for a very long time
