Coming from being a member of Greek life at the University of Missouri, Rockhurst University offers little national PHA sororities. However, I have been told that just about everyone joins a sorority here, so in that aspect the Greek community is strong.

The weather is pretty "bipolar" in Kansas City. It can be raining one day and sunny the next. It gets really humid in the spring and early fall, but it is not unbearable. Also it usually does not snow, but this year there was a blizzard and schools were shut down for 3 days. It was very icy and low visibility, but it melted quickly. There is plenty of rain here, though. One must get rainboots, rain coat, and/or an umbrella if you live here.

I am estatic with the program at Rockhurst. It is put together well and helps students reach their career goals. Their nursing program is one of the bests it have seen and I am gladto be going here. I will not have a problem finding a job in this field because nurses are always needed and there are many options you can choose within the field. I am excited to start the nusring courses next spring and am glad not to have to appliy against 300 other students with a slime chance of being accepted. I am already in the nursing program here which is great.

I would love to have an internship, but I have had little time to do one. Yet, many people have said that interning at hospitals as a potential nurse (which I am majoring to be) is fun and very educational. It would help me learn the field and see how a hospital really works.

I am very satisfied with my majors, I enjoy the subject matter and all the professors.

Many people smoke and drink, but if you don't you can still have fun.
College Junior 2013-03-02T20:36:43Z
Rockhurst makes it very easy to help you find a program that fits your needs.

The food of Sodexo, where Rockhurst buys its food, is not as bad as I was expecting. I was expecting to dislike all of the food and to always have to buy my own. The food at Rockhurst tastes great. My only complaint is that I wish it were healthier. There are three main places to eat; the pub which is mainly diner food, the cafe which has a variety of dishes to choose from every day and Planet Sub which is a sandwich shop that is really delicious.

Rockhurst's campus is beautiful. Everything is modern and clean. The gardening is incredible. The Rock Room or student center, is where a lot of the students go to hang out, get a sandwich, and play some pool. There is always something to do there. The library is a great place to do homework in peace. The art gallery is beautiful as well as the garden right in front of it. There is an organization for everyone at Rockhurst and if there is something that you want that we don't have, you can always start it yourself. Rockhurst campus life is great.

Rockhurst has many aspects that set it apart from other universities. Since it is such a small university, you are able to form relationships with your professors allowing you to better succeed in your courses. There is a learning center in which students who have excelled in classes are there to help students who are struggling. The academics at Rockhurst are wonderful. At Rockhurst, we are a tight knit clan. Everyone gets to know each other well because of the many opportunities we are given to bond with our fellow classmates. We are given the chance to go to concerts, restaurants, movies, and sport events for low prices. Rockhurst makes its students the main priority.

Rockhurst offers many scholarships for the students, but the tuition is still very expensive.

Because our student population is so small, there is not much diversity. We have a handful of international students.
College Senior 2013-01-19T00:06:41Z
My university is very small, only 3,000 students, therefore our athletics are lacking. We do not have a football team like most colleges, but we do shift our attention to soccer. Our soccer teams do well as well as our volleyball team. We have a tennis team, basketball, softball, and baseball.

no matter what time my class is, I always find a good parking spot.
College Senior 2012-12-17T19:03:00Z
not much available in the immediate walking area. if you have a car, the city is yours to take on.
College Senior 2012-12-17T18:58:17Z
I have no problems with the computers at school and I love the computer help desk team. They always have the right answer.
College Sophomore 2012-12-08T06:19:19Z
Very diverse with race, religion, and cultures. We have a wide range of people at this school and a lot of activities to bring people together and learn more about each other.
College Sophomore 2012-11-12T19:25:30Z
A little bit older but they still work just fine for the most part.
College Sophomore 2012-11-12T19:23:35Z
Not the best, the food is pretty much the same every week.
College Sophomore 2012-11-12T19:21:52Z
Everything is close and buses are available. Another good form would be biking.
College Junior 2012-11-08T20:56:43Z
Rockhurst will do all they can to help you find money to go to school. They have really great scholarships.
College Junior 2012-11-08T20:52:53Z
The process is pretty easy. You really just need signatures on a piece of paper. Unless you're in Education, in which case you have to take a test and write an essay before you can get in.

There are a lot of great restaurants in Kansas City. Over in Westport there is Beer Kitchen and McCoy's. In Brookside there is Avenue's Bistro, they have $6 plates in the afternoons. Delicious food over there. Then there is Chipotle, the Mixx, and Yogurtini over by the plaza.
College Sophomore 2012-10-29T19:30:58Z
I gave the student life on campus a B+ because of the activities and or athletic programs around campus. There are no fast food joints, and hardly any organizations to join in. The buildings are old and there's no place to study.
College Junior 2012-10-16T14:15:30Z
It helps that the University of Mo KC is a couple of blocks from campus and there is housing available between efforts of both Rockhurst Univ and U of M KC. And, the housing is very reasonable. The plaza is only 5 blocks away if you like more elaborate housing...
Sorry, there are no reviews.
