I'm going to be neutral on this because it depends on who you are. edit: i started this off as neutral but realized my cons are a lot more than my pros. pros: If your majoring in any science program like me, the faculty is the best of the best. I really got to know my professors on a personal level and they are always available and extremely helpful. small classes make it easier to ask questions and learn. You'll actually feel like you're learning something. Rockhurst is the school of connections to rich white people. So if your going there make sure you do just that!!! I dont see any other reason to go there honestly. OH AND THEY HAVE A REALLY WELL KEPT CAMPUS (hint: thats where all your tuition goes (no joke)).

cons:In my case I am THE ONLY person of my ethnicity in my year. 95% of the school is white/christian. Almost every one over there comes from a pretty well off family. I, for example, am extremely poor with a really nice scholarship (which is proving less meaningful as tuition increases EVERY YEAR). Social life is embarrasing, you have to either be in a fraternity/sororeity or on the soccer team to have any human interaction. parties are lame and way too business like or just plain pathetic cause its so small. It was a plus that 70% of the school were girls but they are all the same. I'm pretty sure 90% of the girls there all had boyfriends and were all virgins. As for the guys…well 3/4 of them are nerds the others are dopey jocks on a sports team. There is no/very very few in-between laid back kids (strange). It's going to feel like high school except your living with your classmates…
