I just joined Greek life here at Rockhurst and I absolutely love it! Some of my friends are in different sororities than me and some are not affiliated with Greek life. Here at Rockhurst it doesn't matter what you are involved in, everyone gets along here and does not discriminate amount another. It's like one big family!

I absolutely love Rockhurst! It's an excellent school with a great reputation. The school helps one develop a strong work ethic. I have enjoyed getting involved in it's community and giving back to the public at the same time. The student activities are abundant and the opportunities to make more friends are endless. The only thing i would do over is finding more scholarships prior to enrolling because unfortunately the tuition went up making it a financial strain on my family.

Coming from a larger school I have really grown to love the small school environment. Rockhurst does a fantastic job making all students feel important. While at first I did miss the extra amenities available at my previous larger, public school, I quickly understood the small sacrifices I was making in order to have a more personal and positive experience.
