Founded in 1910, Rockhurst University is a private institution with “selective admissions.” As a member of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, students at Rockhurst have the opportunity to tap into their faith through retreats, service opportunities, interfaith offerings, and daily mass. RU Academies are a recent addition to the Rockhurst campus, providing “themed” involvement and experience. Nearly 100% of students participate in community service efforts, which has contributed to their recognition as a high “community engagement” institution according to the Carnegie Foundation.

rockhurst is a great university for someone looking to make close relationships with their professors and know them on a personal level. also, meeting new people is super easy because of the size of the university and there are students from all over the world waiting to meet you! what i love most about rockhurst is that the teachers truely want you to succeed and they are willing to do whatever it takes to help get you to the place that you want to be.
