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 very small school that gives students as much attention as possible. This school also pushes all students to do community service and be involved in activities as much as possible. They're also very welcoming and made me feel like I belong there.
