I love Rockhurst University. I have really enjoyed my freshman year. I have made a lot of new friends. I joined many clubs like Student Activity Board and was awarded a leadership position. I live how much service is emphasized at my school.

I absolutely love Rockhurst! Your professors know you by name and are happy to help you outside of class. The small size is a plus too!
