Aurora University has high academic standards and caring professors. The academic rigor challenged me. Expect to work hard and have fun while you learn. Finally, the campus is beautiful. I feel at peace while walking the campus. The campus is clean and the grass is a beautiful.

Degree: Social Work

Aurora University is an amazing educational establishment. They have very clean academic buildings on a small and very safe campus. The atmosphere is very friendly and the program is highly accredited. I have never had a problem with the staff and the financial aid office, as well as all other offices on campus, have very friendly staff who will do everything they can to assist you.

This is my second semester at Aurora University pursuing my Master Degree is Social Work. Aurora University offers lots of opportunities in Social Work such as dual specialization and convenient schedule. Professors spend as much time as needed with students and provide research in future career.

Aurora University provided and excellent opportunity for me to complete my principal preparation program. Classes were convenient and right after I graduated, I landed an administrative position. I would recommend this school to anyone seeking an advanced degree.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

What finalized my decision to apply for Aurora University's MSW program is that they offer a part time option and most of the courses are offered at night and weekends. I am working full time while pursuing my degree, so having the option to complete night classes part time allows me to continue to work and maintain a light course load that won't interfere with my work. The professors are knowledgeable and have worked in the field, so they have excellent guidance to offer.The only con is that the program is expensive in comparison to the public universities within the state.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that the university has a great mission of challenging students to a higher academic standard and encouraging writing creativity. The cons are that the university does not provide support for finding internships or for financial aid needs.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

All of the professors are very personable and very involved in the quality of our learning. I have never felt as though a teacher did not care about my learning and my overall experience. The work load is reasonable and the content is strong and applicable. However, communication is lacking in administration and registration and it takes a long time to get a response with information.

The MSW program is a very good program. The tuition can be a bit daunting but it is well worth the education you are receiving.

Aurora University is a great liberal arts school of study. I am currently attending for my MSW. There are many classes and there are many specialties that one can graduate with. The instructors are very helpful and approachable. They offer day and night courses to fit in any schedule.

I am currently in the MSW program at George Williams College through Aurora University. I have only been in the program for a few weeks, but I love the program. The classes are small and the instructors are learning who we are as individuals. They are focused on helping us succeed. The class is very diverse and I am impressed with the program. I look forward to continuing my education with them.
