Our Students - What They Say

What I like about my major is that we are a close knit group of friends that work with each other to work through academic problems. Even if we do make a mistake, we support each other to try again.

Trevor Thomas

My education here will benefit my future because I am not only learning about my major, I am learning about life.

Vanessa Ostrander

As a non-traditional student returning to college, I feel that psychology is a rewarding field for me. I have gained practical application knowledge here at Rockford University to help people through therapy.

Pamela Ward

I like RU because it is small-scaled and you actually get to know your professors. The campus is like a little community, you get to know almost all of the students.

David Kubacki

I love the community here at Rockford University. There is always something going on here which is a great way to easily meet people and make new friends.

Erica Prchal

Through Rockford University and the JiET-A program, I am an intern in the Electronic Test Equipment department at UTC Aerospace Systems.
