Students Talks About This University

Academics: The academics here at Avila are top notch. The school only hires the best of the best in each field requiring the highest obtained mastery for each subject. Not only that, the teachers they hire are amazing. They teach in a way that is easily understandable, and they are always available to you, which is hard to come by. I recall just last week I was in need of help with one of my papers I was struggling with in my Literature and Culture class. I emailed my teacher and we met up for lunch at a local bakery down the street discussing my paper over coffee. Teachers like the ones they hire here are hard to come by. As far as the difficulty level for classes goes, Avila is very challenging. The classes require a lot of outside class discussions and study groups, but with teachers and dedicated students like we have here at Avila, it really is not too bad.

Academics: Avila University has some of the most amazing teachers I have ever met. I feel if you are willing to learn from them you will walk away with some valuable knowledge. Sometimes the workload seems excessive, but there is always a justifiable reason for it. I love Avila.

Academics: I came to Avila University because it offered me the challenge to work hard and study. Skills that will not only be in asset in the classroom but also in the real world.

Academics: Academics are awesome at Avila. The faculty is very helpful and there is available tutoring if needed in the learning center.

Academics: You put in what you get out. I am in the Business Management Program, and I’ve been satisfied thus far. I meet with my professors on a regular basis to develop that connection I feel that every student should involve themselves in order to succeed in their endeavors.

Campus Quality: I have found the library to be quite adequate. The library has plenty of computers and lots of space to study. All around campus, you can find places to study. There are always different events going on around the campus.

Campus Quality: Buildings Are in Close Proximity. At Avila University, the buildings are all in close quarters of each other. This only makes it that much easier and safer traveling from building to building. Avila has just built a brand new dorm building to accommodate more students on campus.

Campus Quality: Avila is a college with loads of architecture from the green, well cared for lawns to the professional art gallery we house in Dallavis. There are multiple student hangouts and the student store that facilitates to modern, fun activities and outings. There are many activities from athletic events to religious traditions on Sundays.

Campus Quality: There are a lot of activities Avila offers to students outside of class. I always feel safe when I am on campus and I have fun at the different things they offer us. The Eagles Nest is one of my favorite spots on campus. There is a pool table and ping pong table. Computers to use and a flat screen TV. It's always clean and looks very nice every time I go down there.

Campus Quality: Avila is a great university! Avila has an excellent book rental process and printing in the library is FREE! Avila has a fully furnished gym and it is also free to students. Class sizes are small creating a great learning environment.

Campus Quality: Small and Friendly – Avila is a small school with no lecture-halls which tends to make people ask if it is real. Yeah really small. Because of this everyone pretty much knows everyone or has bumped into someone. When it comes to learning not many teachers requires a sign-up sheet and wait most will let you walk in if your there and if they aren't working with another student. The campus is friendly too during the winter people will build an igloo or two while passer-by's randomly stops to help. When it gets warmer like the spring people will go crazy and decided to tan, which gets really funny sometimes while others play volleyball and soccer the campus safety normally helps putting things like that up. We also have the Santa Fe walking trail that a lot of people use when it gets warmer for exercises. Avila offers free yoga classes and really cheap events to go to like skating for 2 dollars or a free hypnotist event. Events like those are constant. The current one is finding pots o'l gold for a prize. Oh. We also see our dean eating with us at lunch.

Diversity: There are people from all over the world that come to Avila University. We have a lot of international students that we have classes with and have chances to interact with. We also have classes that help us to get involved with them, such as communications. Although Avila is small, we have a lot of different types of people that attend the school and everyone is very accepting of the differences.

Diversity: Everyone Is Equal. Everyone is treated the same. We have students from all over the US and some foreign exchange students. This college also offers study abroad classes as well. You are taught to express yourself freely regardless of race, culture, beliefs, and so on.

Diversity: Avila has tons of different types of people on campus due to the exchange program, and there are lots of opportunities on campus to learn about different cultures and people.

Diversity: The diversity is wonderful and all are accepting of one another. The school was founded by principles of love, charity, kindness, and spirituality.

Diversity: The campus is quiet and very accepting of its students.

Guys & Girls: I was very shocked the first year studying at Avila, because everyone knew everyone else and they all liked each other! I was used to a very cliquey high school, and seeing pretty much everyone being friends just made me happy to be there even more.

Guys & Girls: There is such a wide variety of interests at Avila. I love how people wear what they want.

Guys & Girls: Everyone Is Very Welcoming! All the students here are like a big family just because the campus is so small. We all know each other and tend to get along with everyone. The students welcome you with smiles and are typically sports players. We are so small so most of the students who attend Avila are athletes. We are an athletic group of kids.

Guys & Girls: There are several different types of guys AND girls at Avila. There are many people that are very friendly and want to get to know you. But there are also people that prefer to be left alone to study, but for the most part everyone is very nice, and you will always find someone to make friends with.

Guys & Girls: I attend school in the evening, so most students that I see are working adults or athletic students leaving practice. Overall, the students are well mannered on campus. Due to the school being founded by Catholic Nuns, some students dress casual, relaxed (i.e. gym/yoga ), work uniforms, or trendy. The atmosphere on campus is wonderful; the school is always having some kind of campus event in which surrounding communities are often invited to attend.
