5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is challenging but thats how life is.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: 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!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love watching the sports teams here.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being a student at Rockhurst University! There are so many activities here to be involved in and the teachers are truly helpful.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had some good years at Rockhurst University. I have enjoyed learning under the majority of my instructors, and I think that I have learned a lot over the years. All of my teachers have been approachable, and they have been very willing to help if I needed assistance. The advising process, which is how I choose my classes for each upcoming semester has been really easy, and there was only one time that I had to get into a class that was full, and all I had to do was email my academic adviser, and he put me in the class. Other than that, I have had no problems getting into the classes that I needed.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Here at Rockhurst, the most popular sports seems to be men's and women's soccer. Men's and women's lacrosse teams were recently established, and men's and women's basketball seems very popular. The women's volleyball team also had a good season this past year. All of the sports are Division 2, so sports are not as popular at Rockhurst as they are at other schools, but the soccer games are fun to go to. We also get updates on the performance of the sports teams in our student portal, which is nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: All the professors were great and I'm very happy with the variety of courses offered by the school. There is plenty of study areas both on campus and off. The workloads are average and the professors are flexible, when students properly inform the professors on there situation.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very accepting towards all ethnicities, backgrounds, beliefs of students but the school lacks more diversity. There is not much of a diversity in students, but there is no problems or discrimination present.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I've been offered to drink and always decline the offer, but have never been pressured to drink or felt embarrassed of my decisions. People seem to cooperate and understand.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus has an extremely low crime rate and has several security measures in place. The campus is very secure and offers 24-hour security watch and assistance. The students are all given the security service's number at the beginning of the semester, and are encouraged to get to know the officers to build confidence in calling whenever help is needed.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors I had for my first semester were all great teachers. The class sizes was on average about 28 students between all my classes, which really helped with staying focused, engaged, involved, and gave the opportunity to ask questions.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career services department is able to help students one-on-one and create accounts that help build resumes and search for internships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is not very difficult, but the cost was personally a little high. I had the option to commute or live on campus. I saw the dorms and they seemed to be slightly small, but in adequate conditions.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Rockhurst is a great way to get involved and helping students learn more about the opportunities offered by the school. The Greeks and non-Greeks get along very well.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school has great athletic departments and students seem very satisfied. I'm not personally involved in sports, but friends that are really enjoy the athletic atmosphere provided by the school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose this school all over again because of the way they try and help students get involved. They provide a variety of options and opportunities. My favorite experience was going to Washington D.C. for the Ignatian Family Teach-In. This provided me with knowledge in ways to pursue justice and allowed me the opportunity to lobby a senator staffer. I would recommend this school to any student seeking involvement in both the community and beyond.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because the school is a part of the Jesuit community, the campus is located in a bad part of town. However, though, the security and safety is really great. There have been incidents of crime around campus, but there had never been a time where I felt unsafe on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The university offers a variety of courses that typically meet the needs of every student. The professors are obviously well educated, and their teaching styles and attitudes towards students really show that they care about the well being of their students. Each class's style and size varies, though not by much, and it really adds to the character of the school because not every class is the same.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This area is probably one of the biggest reasons that I chose Rockhurst. For almost every degree, there is a 100% graduation rate, and the school is very big on helping graduates find work within 6 months. The career center on campus is very involved with helping students from the start and they start communicating with freshmen within the first semester, and by the time graduation comes around, most students have a job lined up.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing options are pretty normal for a college campus with dorms, as well as townhouses and off-campus houses. The cost of these options are pretty reasonable, and each of these options have their own perks and amenities. I live in an all-girl dorm, and I really like it because it's the easy way to make friends. The townhouses are definitely the nicer living options but it is the most expensive.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is what you make of it - if you join, it can be great, but not joining, can also be great. The school doesn't allow rush until second semester, so throughout all of the first semester, you are able to make so many friends. It's nice though because I am non-Greek, and I have many Greek friends that I absolutely love. The school is too small for there to be Greek housing, and I think that makes a difference, but not in a bad way. It allows Greeks to be around non-Greeks just as much, and even allows there to be no cliquiness or anything.
