St. Ambrose University Reviews
What I have loved most so far during my time at Ambrose has been my academic experience. The professors I have had so far have excellent knowledge in their fields and make their classes engaging while also challenging their students to pursue knowledge in all subjects. In this way the liberal arts education is very well represented at this school. Professors at this school are also more approachable since the majority of classes are no bigger than 25 students. Most of my professors and I are on a first name basis, an aspect of the smaller university education that I have felt has given me greater academic success. If I was going to critique one thing about this school though it would have to the location. While the campus itself is beautiful, the area around it is not in the best shape and there are nearly no places in the immediate area for students to hangout. Because of this, a vehicle or public transportation is almost an essential if you attend this school.
I love attending St. Ambrose University! Most of the professors and staff are very helpful. The atmosphere and students are welcoming. Some changes that I would like to see are more guidance when it comes to the resources that the institution offers, as well as clubs that we are able to become involved in.
I love attending St. Ambrose. The population is just big enough that you see new faces every day but small enough that you see your friends all the time. Same goes for the campus size, it’s a great size! Not too intimidating, easy walk from one end to the other. Great facilities, and the teachers really push you! Very happy with my decision to attend here.
