Rockhurst University provided a wonderful liberal arts degree program that allowed for flexibility of coursework and excellent student to instructor ratios. At the time, their ability to accept transfer credit greatly influenced my decision to attend. The admission's staff were able to answer all my questions. Available scholarships and work study positions were added bonuses. The reputation of the university in the Kansas City area still holds true.

My Rockhurst University experience exposed me to new and different people and ideas. I had some excellent professors whose work caused me to dramatically alter my understanding of the world. My classes were small and personal, which was perfect for me.
