4 College Freshman

Academics: The curriculum and program are feasible.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Honestly the Pre-Medicine program at Avila is great. The way I my schedule is set up I will have graduated from here in 4 years. The required classes include a lot of science and math classes, but the way they set it up lets you balance out your classes within the four years so you're not cramming in two hard classes in one semester. After I graduate here, I will already have great ties to UMKC or other schools around the area for med school in which my adviser has helped me attain. The job opportunities are endless and Avila has provided me with a great kick start into my career.

Academics: The academics here at Avila are top notch. The school only hires the best of the best in each field requiring the highest obtained mastery for each subject. Not only that, the teachers they hire are amazing. They teach in a way that is easily understandable, and they are always available to you, which is hard to come by. I recall just last week I was in need of help with one of my papers I was struggling with in my Literature and Culture class. I emailed my teacher and we met up for lunch at a local bakery down the street discussing my paper over coffee. Teachers like the ones they hire here are hard to come by. As far as the difficulty level for classes goes, Avila is very challenging. The classes require a lot of outside class discussions and study groups, but with teachers and dedicated students like we have here at Avila, it really is not too bad.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics at Avila university are focused and interesting. I look forward to going to class every day. The teachers aren't afraid to get close to their students on a personal level and there aren't favorites. Everyone gets treated equally and (since I'm an art student) self expression is encouraged.

4 College Junior

Academics: I've been a student in the art therapy program at Avila University for about a year now, this is my third semester. I love what I'm learning. The campus is small, the classes are more student-focused than bigger schools, which I like. My instructors are knowledgable and want to see me succeed in the classroom.
