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.
I absolutely loved attending St. Ambrose University. I started out my undergrad career at a different University in Iowa, but transferred to Ambrose halfway through my freshman year. The community and student life is laid back, welcoming, and fun. The professors are all well educated in their fields and are extremely flexible with working with you to succeed. They also have an excellent career center with tons of area connections and opportunities for the students.
