I worked at Avila University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lovely, quiet and friendly campus
Exciting campus activities
Very close knit campus community
Small size makes the campus easy to get around

Cons

Pay could be better, but the benefits and environment make up for it.
Dining Hall food isn't that great, and it's apparent that the budget is tight (reflected in the Kitchen menu).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to make Avila more competitive in terms of pay and you'll have one of the most sought after places to work in KC (campuses).

    I have been working at Avila University

    Pros

    flexible hours, good staff, great students who study hard and are excited to be at a university and work toward their goals.

    Cons

    adjunct professor, wish I could have a better position so that I could have benefits and help support my family better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of my students complain about the living situation at Avila. I think that a Catholic university would have female and mail dorms. I think this would cut down on a lot of drama.
