    Since Rockhurst is such a small school, you make bonds with people very quickly and get to know a lot of different students. I feel as if I could name most of the people in my class and have a personal connection with each one of them. Just walking form my dorm to the cafe, I could pass ten people and each of them will say hi to me. You can also walk into a party and see that there are a lot of people there, but you know most of them, so it is easy to make conversation. Everyone is so nice and welcoming!

    I love being at Rockhurst University. It is a great school and the maint hing I like about it is that it is small. When you walk around campus you will see at least one person that you know. Also, the class sizes are small so it wasn't a hard transition from high school and it keeps you accountable because if you skip class, your teachers will know.

    The people are great, I loved them. It's just that the food is pretty terrible and the academics suck. I think that if you want easy classes that require little work (outside of pre-med or math), and you want to party it up every weekend, come here. If you want a harder curriculum, stay away.

    Sometimes, of course, I miss being at home but otherwise I really do love it! Rockhurst has more than enough activities, including Rockstock (free concert with amazing bands) or Hawk Week, to keep you occupied. I also love the fact that RU is completely service oriented. I feel such a sense of community when I'm at Rockhurst.
