Avila University Reviews

8 reviews
Avila embraces diversity and respects each student regardless of religion, national origin or other characteristics. Avila is very supportive of first generation students coming from families with no experience in higher education. Student services are very supportive and provide various forms of free tutoring services to make sure each student has the best possible chance to succeed. Everyone from the classroom to the dining hall and from the library support staff to the athletic coaches are very friendly and supportive of each and every student. You won't feel lonely when there are so many friendly and supportive people around every corner. Everywhere you go at Avila there are people eager to support and encourage you.

Avila has been nothing short of a positive experience. From the admissions process and everything in between, I have felt supported and valued. I would highly recommend Avila University!
Overall I found the academics to be good. Obviously while you are in any program there will be frustrations. However, I felt like they were addressed appropriately and most of their professors did a great job at teaching the information as listed.
