Campus Housing: The housing options are great, including living communities, housing events, etc.

Greek Life: They have a close-knit community but are welcoming and involved in many different ways on campus.

Athletics: The gym was a great part of my undergraduate career and used every day. There was a wonderful swimming pool. weight room, ping pong tables, basketball courts, and aerobics rooms.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school has a great sense of community and diversity. It was exceptional educationally. Its location is fantastic, providing students many opportunities for fun, community service, jobs, etc. on and off campus. The students and professors are driven in their work and relationships. The counseling center is a great asset to many students.

Overall Experience: Being in Rome is fantastic, and if you insert yourself into the international community outside of AUR you will have a fantastic experience. However AUR itself leaves some to be desired. Much of the faculty is sub par, and teaching methods are not modern in comparison to other American Universities. The facilities are not as well maintained as one would expect from such an expensive school either. Much work is needed in order for AUR to be competitive on a national and international scale.

Overall Experience: AUR is a wonderful school full of interesting and diverse students. AUR uses Rome as an extension of the classroom, which makes the experience here unique to any other American university. The professors are amazing and it feels like one big family here.

Overall Experience: Fantastic experience in Rome! AUR really encourages its students to make the most out of their time in the Eternal city whether by visiting museums or taking day/weekend trips with their classes.

Overall Experience: I loved my time at AUR, the professors all really care about the students. One of the main things obviously is the location! I did my minor in art so you really can't find a better place to study art than in Rome! I also really loved learning to speak Italian. I was also able to do a study abroad in Spain so I even got to learn Spanish! AUR is a very special place and you can see that when you are there.

Health & Safety: 0 crime on campus, everyone knows everyone! Campus is next to the American embassy to the Vatican so there are always police near by protecting the embassy.

Doc on campus is nice, helpful and FREE!

Transportation: There is no need for campus transportation, as its all on one little area. If you want to go any where you can go on the bus, or take a train outside the city to the beach or mountains.

Guys & Girls: International mix of guys and girls is nice. But I am dating an Italian, after all I am in Italy!

Academics: Its all very easy, and I know I can always ask the Prof something. There are no TA's.

5 Recent Alumnus

Administration: There are no dorms. They have off campus apartments for us. Most of us have only lived in them for the first semester then move out. I liked the apartment because I was not living surrounded by other students. I did not come to Italy to hang out with Americans all the time. Each apartment has a full kitchen so I got to cook my own food and save money.

Weather: Rome is nice and you can leave the city easy and explore Europe!

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: The school is small, but that is what I like. There is a garden area where you can hang out. There is a huge park really close where you can go running or have lunch. The library is peaceful and has a garden as well where you can study in the spring and summer. The computer lab has booth Dell and Mac, color printers, copiers and a helpful computer staff. They are always willing to help you even when you have problems with your personal laptop.
