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.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are drugs and alcohol at this school like every school but they do enforce it very well and your not judged if you don't drink or do them.

4 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car on campus this year but I always see that parking is good. However, there are no camera in the parking lots just an officers occasionally patrolling. therefore don't leave things in your car that are valuable and don't have any enemes.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I don't really use the computers at Au because I have a laptop. The internet has been rough this year because they are constantly trying to fix it. It usually doesn't work well after 9pm at night in my dorm building. The printers work well and the labs open til 2am and you can take out a laptop in the library if you want to work somewhere by yourself.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There are alot of things to do if you stay on campus. We have intermurals and everything. They have alot of activities posted and alot of fun things to do. However sometimes on the weekends that hangout places are closed at 12 therefore those days that you want to stay up late there nothing really to do.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: My school is very average fro my major. If I was a nursing or Education major my grade would be higher because those programs are very good within my school. The food is alright depending on the day and the athletics here are great for some programs and others it can bevery challenging to get it.

Local Atmosphere: Aurora is a very calm town, and it is a very safe place. But you are only a 40 minute train ride away from Chicago. Chicago is an amazing city. There is always something to do. If you don't have a car you have to find someone who is willing to take you to the train station, which isn't very far from campus, but still.

2 College Freshman

Computers: Network works well, but it really sucks in dorms. Constantly trying to fix it cause even more network problems

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can find off-camus housing very easily, but you have to look for it yourself. Generally rent is very easy to pay, especially if you live with roommates, but it is definitely a lot cheaper than living on campus. There rarely is parking for people who do have parking permits, much less for commuters. The neighborhood is really safe. If you are commuting you will definitely need a car if you want to move freely.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A few restaurants in walking distance, many further with transportation.
