What Students Are Saying

3.62 Average Rating
The teachers challenge you but want to help at the same time, typically. There are a few professors you may want to avoid, ask people around campus who they recommend. If you stay on task and focus on school, even just a little, it will not be difficult or overly stressing.
Madi from Parkvile
Teachers can be hard, but are always there to actually help. They have good office hours and are never upset to answer your questions.
Jessica from KANSAS CITY, MO
I would give Park University 5/5 stars for academic. The instructors would spend days at a time to make sure every student had a grip on the subject at hand. I also loved how the classes were never over 23 students at a time; it gave me reassurance that the instructor would give me personal attention.

The classes are pretty academically rigorous. Although I am only a freshman and getting mostly basic classes out of the way, all of the professors provide a challenging and positive classroom experience.
Rachal from Rushville, MO
I have to work on homework everyday. It's not necessarily difficult, but the workload is definitely more than high school. It takes some adjusting, but you get used to it pretty quickly. Just pop in your headphones and cut everyone out. There are also designated study rooms at the end of the hall (for Copley, I'm not sure about Chestnut) so that people can get away from any noise or distractions.

The classes do present a challenge which college is all about. The classes are within reason for homework. Professors are very helpful and release class early if need be so not to waste your time. Figuring out required classes and when they are available is cumbersome.
Kristina from Independence, MO
The teacher give the one on one help you need.
