We are located in the middle of a neighborhood, so there is not much to do.

It can be really hot or really cold.

I have only has one class related to my major so far so I do not think I know enough to rate it.

Some teachers are great, but others can make your life difficult because they do not know what they are talking about, nor are they research-based.

If you dont get there early it's very hard to find a parking spot.

Chosing a major was easy, though I already knew i wanted Psychology. But even if undecided it is very easy to talk to the advisors about certain majors.

They have a bus stop near the library. But everywhere you would like to go, you first must have car.

I received a fair amount of financial aid, but it was a long process. At one point, I thought everything was taken care of, but I was told forms were missing. So, I had to re-do a few forms that I had already submitted. I suggest checking your financial aid status regularly to ensure that all paperwork gets accepted.

MSW students are required to complete two internships. The first internship is about 450 hours or 15 hours per week. The second internship is 600 hours or 20 hours per week. These are unpaid internships. AU assists students in finding internships by providing an agency list, but students need to actually contact the agencies to set up interviews and arrange the internship. The internship experience I have had so far has been extremely helpful. The only issue is that with it being unpaid and taking up 20 hours a week, it is difficult to work part time.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a computer to use on campus, especially between classes. However, there are many different computer labs throughout campus that are available for use. It seems to just be a matter of checking out different labs around campus. Although a lot of people either bring their own computers or tablets to do work, so they mainly just use the campus computers for printing material.

It depends on the time of day you are getting to classes. There is very limited parking. If you get to AU in the morning, you should not have much difficulty finding a parking space, but you want to make sure you get to campus early. Also, if you get there in the evening, parking does not seem to be an issue. The most problematic time is late morning/afternoon. I decided to not take classes starting in the afternoon because of the difficulty I have had finding a parking space. It is best to take a morning class, not move your car, and stay on campus for classes for the rest of the day.

Alcohol and drug use are basically nonexsistant on campus.

I come from a predominately white town and was surprised at the number of minorities that attend Aurora considering it's also in the suburbs. Every one is very accepting though, and it's interesting to get point of views from people with different backgrounds.

There is a separate counselor for each major, which is nice. The counselor is very helpful when it comes down to picking classes. They are very knowledgeable.

There is plenty of different off-campus housing available. I'm not sure what the quality is like.

From what I've heard Aurora University enjoys their sports. I haven't personally been to any sport events but I am just starting at the school.
College Junior 2013-07-04T01:40:17Z
In the city of Aurora there are plenty different places to eat off campus. You can usually find a place to eat no matter you're in the mood for.

At George Williams College parking is great right in front of the buildings and it is free... on campus there is no need for a car but you would definitely need a car or buddy up with someone that does to leave campus though.

At George Williams College the campus is beatuiful and you can hang out by the lake. Most students hangout in the dorms or they go down to the college inn.

Health & Safety:
That I know of there has been no crime at George Williams College. The campus is extremely safe.
College Sophomore 2013-06-25T06:39:20Z
George Williams College is a really good school the classes are small, the food, is great everyone is relatively friendly, the lake as well as the campus is beautiful, and the classes are a really a hands on feel in letting you now how you can really use the lessons in life. the only negative part is that the school is just starting to enroll freshmans so its a really small school but that should change over time. the good part about GWC being small though is that the students have a real say into what goes on in the school they can make a difference.

Aurora University is crazy about just about everything. Mandatory attendance at classes, strict no drinking rules, and lots of other pointless rules galore at AU.
Recent Alumnus 2013-06-24T23:58:51Z
You need a car to get around the Aurora area. Unless you plan to strictly stay on campus, you need a car.
College Senior 2013-06-03T21:53:45Z
I love the school. Tuition is reasonable and all of the teachers are top of the line. There's a lot to do around campus and it isn't far from anything within the community like shopping, food or activities.
College Junior 2013-05-29T02:40:15Z
The area attractions are limited to the river, a couple of museums, Paramount Theater and the casino. None of these attractions are in walking distance. There is also no bus service on Sunday, making it difficult to get to places of worship without a car. Shopping is a close walk (about a half mile from the campus).
Sorry, there are no reviews.
