3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing at Aurora University is fairly average. There seems to be plenty of places available near the campus. Good pricing and for the most part, a good neighborhood.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants really close to campus and have reasonable prices. Most are five minutes away and easy to get to.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are not many parties on-campus because they are not really allowed so people go off campus to party. Usually a house off campus is the best place to go, but it has to be where they can keep the noise level down so the police do not come. There is usually a designated driver that will not drink so they can drive everyone back to campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The cafeteria food is alright sometimes. The Spartan Spot is a better choice it has more options. La Carte is if you want to get a snack because you have to go to class.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs at Aurora University are very accessible except during exam time they get crowded. The internet access at the computer labs is good except for when you try to use your own laptop it is sometimes a hassle.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus safety is very strict when it comes to the use of drugs and alcohol, they enforce consequences on students under the abuse as soon as possible but they can also be extremely helpful, especially when you look yourself out of your room.

3 College Junior

Parking: It can be a nightmare if you do not have a pass sometimes. Hard to find spots and can take a little while to find a parking lot close to the school. Since I live on campus I don't have to deal with it much.

4 College Junior

Academics: My Major is Social Work, I find my instructors very helpful and wanting to teach me new things. They are always excited to teach and willing to help. My workload I can say is fair and so far I have done great in school.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received a scholarship for transferring and one for my high grades. They were able to help me with that issue and it worked out just great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty good to live in. The cleaning staff keeps them pretty clean. As a freshman, I loved living in The freshman dorm building because I made a lot of good friends. Most upperclassmen live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus. There are many different races and religions, and everyone seems to hang with everyone. There are also a lot of diverse and ethnic clubs you can join at AU.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is little Greek life on my school's campus, and not much is said about the Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a good diversity at the school and clubs for plenty of backgrounds or interests.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is sometimes a little difficult, some spots are very far from the campus and can add a bit of time getting to class. Many students have to park down the nearby streets but I have found a spot every day.

Weather: It is the Midwest, so there's snow and rain. Not long ago it was flooded on the way to AU and I could not even make it to class, I had to return home.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am enrolled in the Health Sciences program, the classes are interesting and the professors are helpful. When registering, I was also working on a psychology minor and the registration office added a biology minor because they said I was already taking the classes anyway so they really paid attention and helped me out.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety is very present on campus and the school works hard to ensure the safety of the students. There is a school nurse on campus, though I have no had to visit the office, I hear they are helpful!

4 College Senior

Computers: The computers work very well, and I rarely have any problems with them. The only problems I have had with the computer labs at Aurora University are overcrowding and printers malfunctioning.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Aurora University works hard to provide education to individuals of all backgrounds, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, etc. The tuition is reasonable and allows for people of all backgrounds to attend classes and attain a college education. I love it! The diversity allows for insightful and thought-provoking class discussions with my peers!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: If you have an early class chances are you will get a space in the parking lot. If you have a later class you'll end up parking in the street in the residential neighborhood.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have just been accepted into the Nursing Program for the Fall of 2013. My career goal is to first receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then possibly continue on to Physician's Assistant.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't held any type of internship at all because I also work part-time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness level on campus is pretty high. Students caught with illegal substances can either be expelled or severely punished.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are present at this school, but there are strict rules and punishments enforced for those that decide to break the rules. As a commuter, I do not feel the pressure to drink or participate in illegal behaviors.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is not too terrible. The parking permit cost is reasonable. It is only $25 for the whole year. Parking spots fill up quickly though, so those who have class after 8:00am usually have a hard time finding somewhere to park.
