Our Students - What They Say
I chose to attend RU because of the small community feel, it is close to home, and it gave me the opportunity to play two sports while pursuing my degree.
I had two internships while at Rockford University, including one at Savant Capital Management and one at Deloitte Consulting. Both were invaluable in developing my skills as a professional and a leader.
When I was away from the campus, I missed having my own work space and the guidance from faculty that Rockford University offers its students.
I chose Rockford University because I felt that this would be the best opportunity for me to play football and get a great education. The teachers here help you understand everything that is taught because of the small classrooms sizes. I felt that this was the best choice for me.
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and I could not be more excited. The staff and faculty at Rockford University have continuously played a vital part in my life as they both have helped me succeed throughout my time as a student and have helped prepare me for my life and career after college.
I enjoy Rockford University because the campus community and environment are small enough in size to where you can experience and be involved in almost everything.
A plus to Rockford University is the diversity of students, including on-campus, commuter, nontraditional and international. The student experience is enhanced by this diversity, both in the classroom and through extra curricular activities.
I came here to enhance my value as not only a current and future employee, but as a person. The MBA Program has taught me to respect and value another person's opinion and gain invaluable knowledge.
The MAT program at Rockford University offers an excellent education to students and ties the information to the community we live in as well as facilitating local clinical and student teaching placements.
I came to Rockford University for sports and competition, but I stayed because of the endless amounts of opportunities in education.
I have always been curious about the various aspects of the Performing Arts, and at Rockford University I have had the opportunity to be a part of several different performances in a variety of capacities.
I would recommend Rockford University to others, and I do on a regular basis. I feel like the professors and sense of community fostered here go a long way in aiding the academic experience.
Having professors, advisors, and coaches who know you by name and who are always there to help has become a major key to my success both in and out of season.
From the skills I have attained and developed at Rockford University, I am confident that they have shaped me into a more effective, efficient leader and thinker.
I chose Rockford University because I wanted to go to a school where the professors could spend more one-on-one time in the classroom helping students and I wanted to be in a place that builds community.
RU gives me a great opportunity to further my education while continuing to play basketball.
My experiences as a student athlete at Rockford University will stay with me forever, and I would recommend Rockford University Athletics to any prospective student athlete!
