5 College Junior

Diversity: There are people from all over the world that come to Avila University. We have a lot of international students that we have classes with and have chances to interact with. We also have classes that help us to get involved with them, such as communications. Although Avila is small, we have a lot of different types of people that attend the school and everyone is very accepting of the differences.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are no off campus housing options that are associated with the school.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus is quiet and very accepting of its students.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: No Man's Land – nothing super-close, and only one place on campus. have to drive to get to anything.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Looking for a Space – since i commute in the evenings, generally can find a spot. parking lot lighting could be better, however, in the far-reaching lots.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: seems average, thus the C rating. good mix of caucasian and african-american with some asian.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our sports team went state and are high peformers.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safe Place – I feel safe because Avila security is ever present among us including the faculty take it seriously to prevent crime and personal safety for college student who attend.

3 College Senior

Computers: Not Perfect, but Good – The mac lab is my primary work space. The computers are nice and have software pre-installed on them. However, more frequent updates of browsers and software would be better. A plus side is that we just got our own Mac tech hired on Avila's IT crew. The printers definitely need replaced and the wireless internet sometimes goes down for days at a time.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: They Try, but They Need to Be Consistent – Avila Campus Safety has made strides but I still don't feel comfortable about the cadillac converter thefts. Otherwise, there are very few on-campus crimes, and many cameras. There are also easily identifiable emergency polls to either call campus safety directly, or 911. The campus is open and lit fairly well. I do not have to worry about my physical safety.

College Junior

Majors: No Internship Yet – My last semester at school I will be in student teaching but I have not made it there yet.

5 College Junior

Majors: Love the Education Program – The education program at Avila University is above and beyond many other education programs in surrounding areas. The curriculum is kept up with the times and tries to teach us for what seems to be ahead. The teachers are wonderful and truly care about you. The program is so well known that being an education major at Avila lets potential employers know that they can expect something great out of you making it more likely to get a job. I would definitely choose going to Avila for the education program again.

5 College Senior

Academics: Academics are awesome at Avila. The faculty is very helpful and there is available tutoring if needed in the learning center.

2 College Senior

Academics: Program Shouldn't Be Discontinued – The current Pre-Law Studies program is being discontinued but Avila is offering me personal plan. Although this personal plan is not very flexible. Classes are only offered one time during the semester, if even offered that semester. Workload is okay and the teachers are great!

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: DONT EAT IT – save your money and eat off campus or cook yourself because the cafe is a mystery every day

4 College Freshman

Weather: Tunnel Life – there are underground tunnels that make it easy to get to the cafe and to class buildings

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs and Drinking – With Avila being such a small campus, gossip gets aroung quick. Most people who do drugs mainly just smoke. However, we now have a new athletic director who is putting a stop to drug use in sports. There a frequent drug tests for every athlete and if they don't pass they are automatically suspended the first time and the second fail they are kicked out of the school for good. Weed seems to be popular for the guys, but most students just drink to have a good time.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Easy to Find – Being such a big city, there are a lot of options for off-campus living. Prices seem to vary quite a bit, but I have definitely found some nice ones that would be manageable with a roommate or two. Since Avila is in a pretty good part of Kansas City there are many safe and nice ones close to campus. As far as the campus helping students find an apartment, they have many books with apartment options and what each of them has to offer.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports Are Huge – Sports at Avila University are big part of campus life. Since the school is rather small most people on campus are involved with a sport. If students aren't on a team, they still come support. As far as facilities go for the sports, they have continued to improve. This past year Avila has put in a multi-sport turf field that is used for football, soccer, softball, and baseball. They also built another gym that is used for practices and has a batting cage for baseball and softball. The only thing that could use some improvement is the workout facilities. The weight room is not very impressive as far as equipment goes and they only have one treadmill and two ellipticals for cardio.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: House Parties and Exploring – The clubs and bars in the Kansas City area are for students who are 21 and up. Kansas City is, however, a very good place to explore and see all of the great amenities the town has to offer. There are great locations for shopping and restaurants for a date night or girls night out. But as far as night life goes for the people not 21 yet, house parties are the only option.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: There Is a Place to Park! Parking is great. You have to get a parking permit to park in the school parking lot, which is given to you during enrollment. I've never had to drive around and look for an open spot on campus. They have parking available almost completely around the campus so you can easily park and not have to worry about walking a mile to classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Of course there are vending machines all over campus but we also have a Subway on campus. Having Subway so close helps eat a little healthier if you pay attention to what you put on your sandwich but also is reasonably priced and with a good menu.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone Is Equal. Everyone is treated the same. We have students from all over the US and some foreign exchange students. This college also offers study abroad classes as well. You are taught to express yourself freely regardless of race, culture, beliefs, and so on.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: A Nice, Clean, and Safe Area – The off-campus housing selection is very nice. Its clean, safe, but can get costly. It's worth the cost though. You are close to shopping, libraries, and many extras. There are traffic concerns but as long as you allow yourself a few extra minutes you will be fine. There are many choices on places to rent and many of them have a lot of extras to offer as well.

5 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the healthcare management program at Avila was not a difficult process. If you are a transfer student you must have a 2.0 gpa, be at least 23 years of age, or have worked your job for 4 years. The advisors help you set up all of your classes and figure out what you need to graduate saving the students a lot of stress.
