5 College Sophomore

Majors: Everyone in the program is willing to go extra mile to help me the teachers are great.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The plaza is near by with lots of shops and eating places

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics to me is not a very popular thing at my school. Getting students involved is hard.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing for underclassmen is good, but XL is in great need of improvement. There is not enough availability for on campus housing besides the dorms, it is a very competitive process and is very biased.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Rockhurst offers a lot of financial aid for most students, but it is still expensive.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather changes quickly and the winters are very cold

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not a lot of crime occurs on campus but a LOT occurs in the neighborhoods around it. The campus is pretty safe but as soon as you step off it is not.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live on campus because the neighborhoods around Rockhurst are not usually the safest

2 College Freshman

Parking: The few lots we have fill up quickly, and no one wants to park in the garage

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The street Rockhurst is on makes many students feel unsafe. You can often hear police sirens or gunshots. Going to a nearby store alone will almost always make for an uncomfortable experience.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are good but it can be very hard to get into certain classes, especially if you're not an upperclassman.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Business majors have a light course load compared to science majors. Many go into nursing and business.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is a lot of drinking but the enforcement of policies makes it so some people DO get caught.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There aren't a lot of Greek organizations on campus and the fact that they don't allow houses makes it seem like less of a big deal than other schools.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Usually not too strict, very average

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The plaza offers many options, although they're expensive. There is a variety of fast food nearby, but most things are not open late.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Not usually a lot going on, many attend the bar across the street

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Most students are not aware of when athletic events are happening, I have personally never attended one. The school spirit is high in certain circles but in general not a big thing.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's alright. Dorms are crappy.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I thought I would enjoy Rockhurst because I loved how small my high school was. I still like the one-on-one relationship I get with a professor at Rockhurst, but group projects and class time with little participation or effort from other students makes it difficult to enjoy learning. I would not choose my school again because people here are very cliquey, rude, and are not open to new ideas. Also, since it is such a small school and I live on campus, I often feel stuck here. There are not a lot of options for food, activities, etc. I think I will enjoy a college with more going on and one with more choices.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Although I do not participate in Greek life, it seems like something I would be interested in in the future.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe, even when walking across campus alone at 2am.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have never felt unsafe or pressured about drugs or alcohol and no one is judging you if you decided to partake in the activities or not.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Although Rockhurst is considered close to many stores, restaurants, etc. I would not like to walk on these streets, so I feel it is very necessary to have a car. But I do like that we can ride the Metro Buses for free.

3 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from St. Louis so I'm kind of used to bipolar weather, but I am not a big fan of the long cold.
