The campus is small but friendly. It's a bit boring, there are sororities on campus which makes it a bit better.

Nice and small. Class sizes are perfect to where the teacher can get to know you by first name basis.

Although I have not even started school at Aurora University, my visit to the university made me feel very comfortable. I was able to attend a couple classes and even talk to the professors. All of them were passionate about the subject they were teaching and it was obvious that their goal was to keep the students active and engaged. In addition, the students are all very diverse and make the school more unique. They have great school pride and represent Aurora very well around campus and at sporting events.
