Rockhurst University

Rockhurst University is a Jesuit liberal arts university with a small campus in Kansas City. Like other universities with religious affiliations, volunteering and service learning are emphasized. The university offers multiple volunteer opportunities, including service trips like the Missouri River Relief, where outdoorsy students help clean debris from the nation's longest river. The school offers a Service Transcript program in which students can receive two transcripts when they graduate, one for their academic work and one for their volunteer work. The university offers more than 50 majors within its three colleges; the most popular among the programs are within the health professions. With fewer than 25 students per class, there is usually a 12:1 ratio between students and professors. For spiritual work, the university offers seven weeklong mission trips to international locations, and more that head to cities around the U.S., too. Plus, they host a weekly campus ministry. Students can join one of the four fraternities or four sororities on campus. While sports aren't a huge campus draw, the university's Division II men's and women's soccer programs are strong; several former Hawks are current professional soccer players.
