2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There really isn't a huge party scene that happens.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The bar is open late and people are always trying to start small parties or stuff like that to have fun on the weekends when bored. They dont usually get out of control.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics are very important. Professors are always helpful and the curriculum is up to date and challenging. Registration for them can be difficult. It is best to do it as soon as it opens. Workload is average.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: While minorites are accepted, there are not that many.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Some people do drugs but they don't bother others

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small. This offers for more intimate learning experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most students find jobs right after graduation and pass board exams.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our campus is very concerned on safety. We are given numbers and directions every year to help in case of emergency. Only disregard is that campus should be lit better at night.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is good. Girl's dorms could be a little bigger. More rec space and laundry space is needed.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life. We refer to them as households. They are tons of fun and are a huge part of the school.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is school spirit at this school. Athletics are a little above average.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Due to its small size, Ave feels like a family. From adorations, to football games, to households, this school has created so many memories. I would choose it again.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think the campus is very safe, and I have no problem walking around at night. There is a campus security person on duty at all times, and the students generally don't get into trouble. Crime on campus isn't much of a problem. Other than drugs or the occasional theft there are not many issues.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career services on campus are pretty good. They care about helping the students get jobs and continuing in their careers. There are a fair amount of internships and job prospects available. Not a lot of employers come to recruit on campus though.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus there is excellent. There is a great sense of community there, and it has an overall great atmosphere. The dorms themselves are fine with only minor problems here and there. The biggest downside is that living on campus is a little expensive and the school makes it really hard to live off campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Many of the students on campus are very active and will get together to play different sports. The school sports teams aren't a huge part of campus life though. The school wants them to be and have been pushing to make the teams and facilities higher quality, but it hasn't seemed to work very well yet. They want to have top level sorts programs, but I don't know if that will ever happen.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I Love this school because it really focuses on making the student a well-rounded and overall better person. The faculty and teachers care about the students' success in the classroom and outside of it. They want the students to become better people and grow in their faith as well as learn. Also, the students here are amazing. They are extremely friendly and caring, and they really push you to be the best person you can be. Easter there is a great example of this because many of the students still there over brake come together to celebrate this feast together as a community. Many go the the vigil mass and then head over to the Resurrection Part after words to celebrate and spend time with each other. Seeing all of the joy there was a really moving experience.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: No real party scene. This a Catholic college

4 College Junior

Academics: The Academics at Ave are very challenging. The professors really push you to do well.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Ave Maria is Avery devout catholic college. Most of the students are Catholic. They will accept anyone from any race or religion.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are very big and nice. The dorms usually fit four people. It is very expensive to live on campus(around $4000) Room mates are very nice and friendly. They are very easy to get along with.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I did not participate in any sports.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe at Ave. There is always someone patrolling the campus. There is never any crimes on campus.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Ave is a very safe area.There are always security guards surveying the area at night. Alcohol and drugs are prohibited on campus grounds. You will be fined if you are caught with alcohol or drugs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely loved my experience and Ave Maria University. The courses are very difficult, but you will do fine as long as you study and complete assignments on time. The professors are very helpful. They really care about you and they will be more than willing to help you if you are struggling in a particular subject.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Ave Maria offers a unique and fulfilling experience to its students by providing an excellent and well-rounded education, a Catholic foundation and community, and an opportunity for growth and spiritual development. Overall, it’s an experience that cannot be found anywhere else! Although Ave Maria is a new university, it has grown despite the hardships of the recession, demonstrating the determination of the school and student body. While this may not be the school for everyone, Ave Maria will definitely help you grow intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The combination of a liberal arts education and love for God helps to drive the University and its students. The University may not have the best sports teams and isn’t located in the most exciting town, but the knowledge and wisdom gained here is incomparable.

While the academics and modernity of the school are certainly impressive, it's the community and faith of the school that ultimately attract its students. Between the households and dances, essays and lectures, students at Ave not only gain an education but also an experience like none other. Ave certainly isn't perfect and it still needs a lot more work before it is fully developed, but considering the newness of it, the University undoubtedly has a lot of opportunity to grow. The current students are helping to build the foundation for one of the best Catholic universities around.
