"St. Ambrose was a wonderful institution and I would not trade the educational experiences that I received for the world. The small class size provided an immense amount of support and attention and I felt that there was no way I could fail in that environment. My professors were invested and caring and the content was relevant and timely in all my classes."

"I greatly enjoyed my three years at St Ambrose and I wish i had participated in more on-campus activities and groups. I was at Ambrose on an athletic scholarship and that did take up most of my time, but i enjoyed the campus because it was small. I am still connected to my professors and had a few write my letters of recommendations for graduate school. I still visit with them on campus to discuss certain things of interest as well as on-campus activities that i can help with. Overall, I loved it and the size of the school was perfect for me."

"So, Ambrose was a great school with very dedicated professors and many ways to get involved. While I was there they were revitalizing--new buildings and programs with higher endowment funds. If only the students, staff, and professors had a little more pride. "Oh, it's Ambrose!" I heard numerous times during my four years of undergrad there, "nothing like those other schools that actually have some value!!" And let's be honest here the school did not follow policies very well for dealing with harassment and discrimination. If a student was bothered by another or worse, the staff and professors would just tolerate and let it go. There were multiple serious things happening when I was a student in some of the dorms and even multiple students with some behavioral issues in the classroom and the school's approach was just to let it go. Really wasn't that long ago but now things might be better. Overall good value for education and programs, also offering service and great investment in the community."

"St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa was the perfect university for me. It was small, without being too small. I had a few large classes, but felt comfortable seeking individualized assistance. The nursing department was top notch. I felt completely prepared not only for nursing boards but to begin my nursing career. I begin graduate school on May 8th, 2017. I will be attending Barnes Jewish College Goldfarb School of Nursing. I will be obtaining my Master of Science in Nursing; I will be an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner upon graduating and passing boards. I am so excited about this adventure. Obtaining this scholarship would truly be life changing, as I will continue to pay my undergraduate loans while accumulating additional educational debt. Thank you so much for your consideration."

"The small student to teacher ratio is extremely beneficial. This allows students to have a variety of opportunities that they would not at a larger university. For example, those taking Anatomy and Physiology are lucky enough to have a class of about 15 in cadaver lab. This experience makes students marketable when applying to graduate school. Most importantly, the professors and administration truly care about their students succeeding and do their best to make their time at St. Ambrose the best experience possible."

"The psychology program at St. Ambrose is amazing. The faculty and staff are so willing to help you along your way and they truly get you ready for the real world you will step into! The career center will also provide mock interviews, set up career fairs, and will get you ready to land your top job. 10/10 recommend"

"St. Ambrose is overall a good school, but expect to pay out of pocket for almost everything, and not get a whole lot of help from the Financial Aid department as far as options are concerned. The professors are good, but Financial Aid is clearly used to dealing with students who don't have to worry about the costs of college, and treat you as such."

"Small campus, so you know your way around well. Class sizes are also small so that his helpful to have better one-on-one time with your professors. Be aware of some of the newer programs as they are still working out some issues."
