The American University of Rome Reviews
I loved my time at AUR, the professors all really care about the students. One of the main things obviously is the location! I did my minor in art so you really can't find a better place to study art than in Rome! I also really loved learning to speak Italian. I was also able to do a study abroad in Spain so I even got to learn Spanish! AUR is a very special place and you can see that when you are there.
The school has a great sense of community and diversity. It was exceptional educationally. Its location is fantastic, providing students many opportunities for fun, community service, jobs, etc. on and off campus. The students and professors are driven in their work and relationships. The counseling center is a great asset to many students.
Being in Rome is fantastic, and if you insert yourself into the international community outside of AUR you will have a fantastic experience. However AUR itself leaves some to be desired. Much of the faculty is sub par, and teaching methods are not modern in comparison to other American Universities. The facilities are not as well maintained as one would expect from such an expensive school either. Much work is needed in order for AUR to be competitive on a national and international scale.
