3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you're 21 and older, this is your city. Get yourself a fake or suffer a painful 3 years of Rockhurst "parties"

4 College Sophomore

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

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 Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Kansas City is the best of both worlds. You can drive 20 min and feel like you are in the middle of nature, or right down the street to find an exciting nightlife and shopping. The Plaza has great food options, and The Power and Light district and Wesport are just a few minutes away; all of which are constantly providing free live music and art fairs.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Located in the heart of Kansas City, there is always plenty to do. Rockhurst is minutes away from the Plaza and a few blocks from Power and light district
