“When I was at a big state school, I didn’t feel like I was being held accountable if I didn’t show up to class or complete my homework. But when I got to Avila, I was getting phone calls and text messages from my professors if I missed a class to make sure I was okay. Avila had more of a family environment that made me feel valued.”

“My favorite part about Avila is the in-class and out-of-class availability and assistance provided by extremely knowledgeable professors. With that being said, the quality of the education I received was excellent.
Professors still expect you to perform academically and push students to excel in their interdisciplinary studies while taking charge of their own success. Apart from class and faculty, I have also enjoyed the friendly nature of Avila’s student body and their willingness to help other classmates out while completing their education. I have made lasting friendships that I will treasure for a lifetime.”

“I originally chose to attend Avila so that I could continue playing baseball. After I enrolled, however, I was pleased to find that Avila offered outstanding academic opportunities as well. The professors take initiative and seek to see you succeed. The class size coupled with the professors, allow for a personalized experience that exceeded my expectations. This experience enabled me to enter Avila’s 4+1 graduate program and graduate with a minor in management.”
