After coming to campus, I’ve loved the school. It provided me with so many different opportunities. The staff and faculty are very encouraging. If I wouldn’t have gone here, I don’t know if I’d be where I am now as a senior at Rockhurst.
Alexis Medina | Sports Management ‘19
Coming to a Jesuit institution, I was able to grow in many different ways, whether it be academically or spiritually in my faith, that I think I wouldn’t have been able to if I had stayed home for college. I had some amazing experiences out in the community in Kansas City, and I was able to experience life from a different perspective.
