The support received from counselors are bar none. You get a team of support even before you step foot on campus. I think anyone would thrive in this environment.

Campus live is fun here at Avila. As with everything it is what you make it.
College Sophomore 2013-01-20T00:16:37Z
Most areas of the campus are very comfortable and up to date.

Avila is a beautiful campus and I have felt very safe here. There have been a few incidents with theft in the parking lots, but we are in Kansas City.

I haven't had any problems with the financial aid at Avila. They have been very helpful in the whole process.

Kansas City is known for its barbecue and there are tons of great barbecue spots, by far the best I've had in my life. There are tons of great places to get good food from and the off-campus dining is some of the best!

The newer dorms such as Avila Hall and Thompson are made of suites and is more suitable for the college lifestyle. If you are a freshman you are more than likely to end up in Carondelet or Rigeway and those aren't the best of dorms. I stayed in Carondelet my freshman year and it wasn't the best compared to being in the upper echelon Thompson Hall.

Nightlife is for students 21 and older. Nearly all the clubs and of course the bars are 21 and up. The best choice is to go to a house party because that is where everyone on campus will be and everything is free and more fun.

Its very frigid and snows a lot. Its not as bad as I thought it would be, coming from the south, but I have adjusted and it is actually alright. As an athlete it is something I have had to get adjusted to rather than having to just deal with it. Classes aren't that far apart so it isn't bad at all. But, once it heats up it feels great and I just love the atmosphere.

Crime is prevalent at most campuses. The safety team at Avila do their best to ensure that their students are safe.

Parking is the worst part of my day! It is horrendous!!! I commute everyday about 30 miles and it is rediculous when I arrive on campus. One day it was pouring down rain and I had to park two neighborhoods away! So the next time this happened, I parked where others were on campus that were not necessarily parking spots and got a ticket.

There is always room for improvement. The options are are great, but the times of day that we are able to get food are not that convenient. There should be options for people who don't live on campus and do not want a full lunch to grab a drink, or snack, etc. Otherwise, if you decide to purchase the meal, there is lost to choose from and if you go away hungry it is your own fault!

There is such a wide variety of interests at Avila. I love how people wear what they want.

I don't live in the area so I no idea of what the night life is like. I've heard from friends and associates that there are a lot of parties in the dorms and life on campus is very social.

I came to Avila because it's one of the few colleges that provides a Bachelors degree for Radiologic Technology. This college had a wide range of degrees to choose from.

It's not easy to recieve financial aid. I apply for it and the office lost my information about two times. So I had to keep giving them forms they had already. they don't seem organized. I also asked them for advice on how to recieve more grants and scholarships. They just gave me a booklet with some information I already knew. I didn't get very much help from them
College Junior 2012-11-30T23:47:46Z
I haven't completed my general curriculum yet, so unfortunately I haven't entered my major as of yet. I start my major in January. I know a few people who are in the Radiologic Science major and they seem to enjoy it.

The campus is located in Kansas City, Missouri so if you don't like snow and ice this isn't the campus for you. In Missouri the weather changes often. It will be hot then the next day it's snowing. The weather in the summer, spring ang fall is okay. I hate winter weather, especially when I have to go to class. Even if it snowed and ice is on the rodes class won't be cancelled. I drove to school on the icy rodes and didn't slide. But once I got on campus i slide about 3 times and almost got into an accident with another car. The parking lots were very slick. The only upside to having class in the winter at Avila is that thereare some tunes so that you can alk to your classes without walking outside.

There are a wide variety of stores, shopping centers, and restaurants in the area. The college is in the middle of an suburbian community. The community is religious and it feels very safe. The students and residents near the college are very polite and friendly. The college provides many different acitivities, traditions and festival to keep the atmosphere feel very close-knit.
