When I first toured Avila University I was skeptical. It was an extremely small university and I had always had dreams of attending a large university. Two years later and I can't imagine being anywhere else. I love the faculty, the classes, and the students. It's rare that you find a college student that enjoys going to school. I can't stress enough how much I love this place. I don't have any complaints. We have a very diverse student body and I have enjoyed meeting so many different people from so many different walks of life.

I thoroughly enjoy attending Avila, and am pleased I decided to enroll there. It is small, which cuts down on networking though education. However, the professors make up for this lack of networking. They are invested in our well-being and make time to help us, both with our in-school education and our outside internships/job searches.
