Rockford University Reviews
I studied English with a minor in secondary education. Overall, the English professors at Rockford College were excellent. Their depth of knowledge brought fresh interpretations to the canon and introduced me to primary sources and to works outside of the canon. They were enthusiastic about their subjects, and they were encouraging while also holding students to a high academic standard. I felt that the secondary education courses taught plenty of theory, but, for me, did not sufficiently address the practical skills needed to manage a classroom. After teaching for a year, my English degree got me jobs in the medical field. I found that my education had prepared me for writing medical summaries as well as for the problem solving, planning, and documentation required of a Practice Administrator. I am grateful for the critical thinking, research, and writing skills that I developed at Rockford College; they have served me well throughout my professional career and in everyday life. Working with injury patients led me to appreciate the role that physical therapists play in recovery, and I'm now enrolled in post-baccalaureate courses with the intent of pursuing a graduate degree in physical therapy. I'm grateful that my degree from Rockford College opened doors to discovering a rewarding career.
The campus itself is beautiful, and is located in the heart of Rockford. The students are amazing and very diverse. The facilities are currently being modernized and the faculty are very helpful.
My MBA obtained at Rockford College helped me obtain the career position I had hoped for. However, being a private institution, that came at a great financial expense.
