3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Strict toward noise in the dorms.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Guidelines are usually provided regarding personal safety, especially in the library and walking alone.

If one wants to go to library at night, then the student can call one of the campus security people to walk with him/her.

College Senior

Greek Life: The school doesn't have Greek life.

College Senior

Nightlife: I spend my weekends studying. I am clueless about nightlife.

College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I didn't go to one because most of dining is on Campus

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would have rated this area higher if not for all the credits that are required (and yes, I realize this is a nationwide sort of regulation.) Outside of my core classes and my major credits, I have very little interest in the other courses simply because I see a college as a business. My work and credit hours with my major classes and my travel courses, has been excellent, varied, and industrious.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The quality of Avila and its alumni is great, regardless of whatever opinion I can make.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Avila was originally an all-girl's school so women are highly valued and not just mashed in and forgotten. However, there are no actual events that single out either sex, so equality is a major value for Avila and the Sisters.

College Senior

Nightlife: Honestly, I'm not quite at drinking age yet and I'm not really a party person, myself. I do know from the location of Avila that is it close to downtown Kansas City, the Plaza, and even Westport where there are nightlife venues everywhere including hookah lounges, casinos, the Sprint Center, 18th and Vine, and the Power and Light District.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus although I have spent time within the dorms and have appropriate knowledge of the dorms from enrollment. The atmosphere in the dorms is very subtle and nice while also social. The sexes are segregated, obviously, by floors and the amenities are minor but get better based upon your attendance and G.P.A. If you're above a freshman level and are on honor roll, you get the opportunity to move to a dorm where you room by yourself and only share a kitchen area with your dorm roommates.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Any strictness that is enforced is wholly for the benefits of student safety and not for unfair or overly strict, authoritarian purposes. I don't personally live in the dorms so a lot of the above ratings are not really available firsthand from me.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Avila is a college with loads of architecture from the green, well cared for lawns to the professional art gallery we house in Dallavis. There are multiple student hangouts and the student store that facilitates to modern, fun activities and outings. There are many activities from athletic evens to religious traditions on Sundays.

College Senior

Majors: I have yet to fulfill an internship position although it is required by Avila's graduation requirements. I'm purposely choosing to wait on such matters. What I can say in concerns to internships, is that, at least in my department, the professors whole-heartedly work with you and guide you into proper, good internships that suit your needs and your career.

College Senior

Majors: I'm personally going for a very large internship program that will require a lot of time and outside work on my behalf. This is not required, rather this is my way of busting into my industry so that I don't have to waste loads of time right out of college playing the grunt worker. As for tips for admission, I say definitely work with your assigned professors as they know their industries better than anything and will help you overcome all of the challenges so as long as you're prepared to work.

College Senior

Greek Life: Although Avila has a lively, abundant student body and student lifestyle, there are no Greek lifestyles within the school campus. If there are, I have yet to see or experience any sort of social environment such as that.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food is your average run-of-the-mill sustainability plan. Although the campus dining hall workers make a great effort, unfortunately most of the food is highly processed and preserved. The prices are pretty high and outrageous even if you buy a meal pass especially for the quality; but after all, college food is about quantity not quality.

4 College Senior

Athletics: At Avila there are multiple possibilities for athletics outside of the varsity sport and athletic departments. There are multiple gyms that are also able to accessed privately for classroom and student purposes. The college really tries to represent their values and good sportsmanship through all sports and makes sure the environment is not exclusive so that all students have the possibilities of being involved in sport or school spirit.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Avila, especially since it is a private, religious university, takes great preventive measures for safety purposes and an overall positive environment. There is at least one campus safety guard monitoring along the campus throughout the entire day and evening. There are multiple emergency posts stationed on the campus that allow quick contact to campus safety or the 911-hotline and most buildings have restricted access for student id holders only.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: not the best nightlife but close to downtown where it is great

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: security and health services are wonderful

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: great school, great people, and great student life

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: degrees from this school are very much valued

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: If you can afford to live off-campus and go to college.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: One does not live in the dorms.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: You must apply for scholarships to offset Avila's cost.
