The school is so overated, you pay soQuite BrightComputer Science
The school is so overated, you pay so much for so little. Once you tour the school you think,"This would be a nice place to go." In realatiy it is very poor school. The dorms are never cleaned, the bothrooms are completly terrible just living on campus is the absolute worst. Avila thinks they try and give attention to every student but infact the only care about the ones living off campus. They are increasing the tuition 2000 dollars next year jsut becasue we get books for free. Paying 2000 more a year jsut for books is absurd. I got my books for the next 2 semsters for under 250 dollars. There is an increasing number of students that are transfering from this schools because of how poor and bad it is. I repeat you do not want to live in the dorms at this school if you want a social life. The dorms are completly disgusting with mold all over the showers and the cleaning crew just sits on their butts all day not doing anything. You try and tell campus life faculty about the situation and all they do is say they'll work on it, but the never do. This is possible one of the worst colleges in Kansas City I would strongly recommend not going!!

Question
The Education program is one of the bestBrightEducation
The Education program is one of the best program around and I chose Avila for that specific reason. However, there are flaws, many of them. The School of Education is very out to date on not only their policies for student teachers but also the way classrooms are run in today schools. Student teachers are required to wear slacks, skirts, blouses and shells...... If that doesn't answer why the policy is out of date, I don't know what will. Also the student teacher advisors clearly have an unrealistic view of how classrooms are in schools today, specifially with incorporating technology. And being at Avila for several years, and now out teaching, it is apparent to me that Avila has no intention of using, or teaching their students the technology available in todays classrooms. For heavens sake, I learned how to use an Overhead Projector in my Math Methods course. On a brigther note, there is a new dean, and I hear that he is younger and hopefully going to be sprucing up and updating the School of Education.

Question
The administration, especially those incharge make you, asAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
The administration, especially those incharge make you, as a student, feel like you're nothing more then a way to make more money. Once you pay your tuition they couldn't care less about you. Any problems you have usually occur because of their incompetence and poor organization. The 26,000 dollars we pay to go here seems to evaporate into thin air; our facilities are sub par even for high school. It really is disappointing because there are some very good things about the school and a few of the faculty, however, my overall experience with this school has been negative. I would not recommend this school what so ever.
