"Rockhurst University is the kind of school that prepares you in every aspect possible for the real world. The professors and staff members truly care about each individual student, and that becomes clear to you from the first day of school visits. Rockhurst University has a wonderful reputation and that name in itself carries a lot of weight, which is important when beginning your job search."

"The pros of Rockhurst's OT program is that the master's program is shortened so it is only two years instead of three. Another pro is that the faculty are OTs who have a lot of experience in the field which help them teach and relate the materials to real world situations. They do a nice job of teaching the basis of OT like the models and how to write goals and notes. They also give us a diverse look at OT and set up the curriculum to resemble the NBCOT exam with pediatrics being the last thing taught. A con about the program would the cost of Rockhurst graduate programs and how we are required, because of the shortened time, to go to class over the summer. Another con would be the lack of free time and social life outside of the program, even though they are preparing you for real life. As far as cons go, the biggest one is the price of tuition and how Rockhurst is located in the middle of Kansas City so housing prices are not the most affordable."

"At Rockhurst University, I feel as though the professors are willing to help you as much as possible to reach your career goals. The campus is not located in the most safe area, however, the campus security and security phones on campus make me feel more safe. Overall, I think that Rockhurst is a great University and the professors are committed to making their students the best they can be. The occupational therapy program is very intense and requires a lot of outside work. I believe that the education at Rockhurst will prepare me in the future as an occupational therapist."

"Rockhurst is an excellent university for an Occupational Therapy education. The faculty is very supportive, cares about the students, and experts in the field. The university is not in the best part of town for safety, and it is difficult to find affordable, decent, and safe places to live very close to campus. The program is very demanding and not cheap. You can take out loans, but scholarship and grant options are limited."

"The best part of the program is the opportunity to volunteer and gain experience in the pro bono health clinic. Unfortunately, there are a limited number of spots, so it can be difficult to sign up."

"Faculty and staff first rate especially when it comes to helping students individually. The campus is very safe though it is in an urban area where safety can be an issue."
