Aurora University - Comments and Student Experiences|
The other is factor is that that minority inner city churches pool money together to ship inner city minorities (often gang members) to AU - so the church community raves about AU because of its diversity. Unfortunately that translates to a lot of students who are not college material attending. There is a lot of racial tension and a lot of girls are constantly sexually harassed by certain groups of people. Aurora also has a large indigenous population of illegal aliens and Latinos who attend the college and often are ill prepared for a real collegiate life.
Lastly several of the programs are simply jokes. Their Computer Science program is not competitive and of marginal value in the market place. Graduates of Northern Illinois University Computer Science program are strongly favored over AU grads for a reason, AU program is 4th rate in computer science. I took some classes at NIU and I could not believe how much harder they were and yet how competent I felt in the subject matter when the semester ended. AU pampers it Com Sci students, NIU does not.
My advice is to avoid Aurora University. Aurora University is a school you fall down to not aspire to. It is for townies, municipal workers and minority outreach students not for people with talent or ability.
