Culture Shock Isn't Always a Bad Thing
Rockhurst students get creative - presenting art and photography exhibits, writing poetry, taking music lessons, working on the University's fine arts journal, even writing and directing films. Students of all majors get to participate in our outstanding theater productions and other cultural endeavors.
Rockhurst students don't have to look far for inspiration. The University regularly brings Pulitzer Prize winning authors, renowned scholars, Nobel Peace Prize winners, and nationally recognized poets, journalists and artists to campus for discussion and debate.
If you're interested in art, you're definitely in the right place. Kansas City is one of the premier art cities in the nation. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art are both within walking distance of the University, and the Crossroads Art District is an easy drive from Rockhurst.
