WHAT I LIKED

It's just your average school. I wouldn't say that this is a dream school for sure.

It's missing that unique factor.

WHAT I LIKED

I liked that I could take most of my courses online. It allowed me to be flexible as a working mom. Multiple assisted me throughout the process of enrolling and starting my classes.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think everyone hates how much school is. I am fully online and tuition was 7k. I couldn’t attend without loans.

WHAT I LIKED

Aurora University is a great school for students who are looking to take their education seriously; however, with the workload and the help of professors, it is easy to both take school seriously and have a life outside of school. I love AU and its professors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While there are opportunities for academic scholarships, if you did not get great grades in high school or government assistance, it will be very expensive.

WHAT I LIKED

I enjoy my time at AU and have made a great group of friends. The school is small which is helpful when it comes to networking.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think there should be a student activity center. Having to share the gym and weight room with every sport is very annoying because we can not go in when they are in there.
