What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
be outgoing! never say no when someone invites you to go do an activity and don't be afraid to be yourself!!
Anna from Overland Park, KS
The number one thing I would absolutely recommend is to join every club/organization that you think you might enjoy! Rockhurst offers a variety of groups for every person. Also do not miss out on free food/movies/etc that is given to students as a reward for doing such hard work. I would also say to incoming freshmen, enjoy living in the freshmen dorms... they're AMAZING. And never forget that the teachers are there to help you, so do not hesitate to go to their office!

Elizabeth from Omaha, NE
Get involved! If you decide to go to Rockhurst, you will hear this phrase a lot, but they truly mean it. I met so many new people through my experience as a Rockstar and joining my sorority, and this upcoming year, I will be an Orientation Leader as well as a Student Ambassador. These leadership opportunities allow you to make connections with students as well as staff members at RU. At any school, you can't just sit in your dorm room all day, you need to get out there, get involved, and know that there is more to life than just acing classes. Extracurriculars will also you to escape the stresses of class, you just have to find whats right for you.

When looking at colleges it may sound stupid but a pro/con list is the way to go. Get out a pen and paper and sit down with your parents and brochures from the colleges your interested in and write why you would want to go to one and why you wouldn't want to go to one. It will make you see what is important to you and what you are looking at in a college which will make your choice easier.
