- Residential living. Known for having the best college housing in the Midwest, Ambrose's residence halls feature large rooms with high-speed Internet access, cable, kitchens, private bathrooms, and even housekeeping services.
- Our faculty and staff. Their commitment to developing the whole person is unmatched; students often say they found another family at Ambrose.
- Quality Liberal Arts Education. More than 60 majors; 50 clubs and organizations; 26 varsity athletics teams; art, theatre, and music and more.
