5 College Junior

Local Area: You cannot get much better than Mid-town Kansas City. The city is energetic and vibrant. There is always something to do off campus (events, concerts etc.). Whether you are a foodie, artsy, athletic, entrepreneurial, or eclectic; Kansas City has it, and whatever "it" is it is usually close to campus

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Kansas City is beautiful and fun any time of the week. Being close to the city makes night life fun, but there are other options such as movies, shopping, sports teams, etc

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: If you're 21 and older, this is your city. Get yourself a fake or suffer a painful 3 years of Rockhurst "parties"

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The plaza is near by with lots of shops and eating places

2 College Freshman

Local Area: The street Rockhurst is on makes many students feel unsafe. You can often hear police sirens or gunshots. Going to a nearby store alone will almost always make for an uncomfortable experience.
