The Good Points:

The campus is pretty nice aesthetically in the summer because of the maintenance of the trees and flowers. Small classes are excellent because you get the personal attention you want if this is your thing. Most professors are approachable and has time to help you. Rockhurst also offers some good quality health programs.

The Bad Points:

This part will be way longer than the good points. First, I am really annoyed by how closed-minded the students on campus are. Most comes from medium to higher income families, and doesn't understand or accept anything out of their own bubble that mommy and daddy has put them in. The "University" is not so diverse, most of the students are Caucasians or simply; White (of course because it's a private school). In your college career, you would want exposure to different cultures and ideas, not be stuck in this protective environment these students are presumably in. Secondly, the facilities (computer labs and such) really is limiting and the windows they run are really old. Things are always broken in the girls' McGee dorm (like the elevators). Internet connection is constantly down if you live in the dorms. Thirdly, there is no social life on campus if you're not involved in Greek life. Your social activities are pretty limited and it gets really boring and dull on campus. Some girls are so dumb, I'm not even sure how they got into college. In addition, I know I said small classes are great, but sometimes it can feel like high school 9it is high school) because the profs are constantly monitoring your activities and attendance in their class. Lastly, the food was good at first, but gets so repetitive every week because they always have the same thing (like wraps and pasta).

Just don't even consider applying to this school unless you are one of the rich kids who is closed-minded. I transferred here for 1 semester and can't stand it anymore that I'm transferring again to Mizzou.
