What is your overall opinion of this school?

Committing to Marquette University is the best decision that I've ever made. Marquette's academics are rigorous and enriching. You're sure to find meaning in every course that you take. The people here are incredibly kind and the professors are very approachable. There is tons to do, as Marquette is located in the heart of Milwaukee. The party scene isn't as huge as a school like Madison but definitely it's alive on weekends. I will forever be thankful for the people that I've met here and the experiences that I've had!

It's a great school, with a good community of students, professors, faculty, and alumni. The education is challenging and fulfilling, as well as a great environment that betters the experience. As a student I feel safe, educated, and properly aided when needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Like any other school, Marquette University has its pros and its cons depending on who you are as an individual. Its at the center of a moderately-sized city in the state of Wisconsin. This gives it both an urban feel and your typical friendly midwestern atmosphere. Although its located in downtown Milwaukee, the campus is designed in a way so that it feels safe and secluded from the rest of the city. This is something I consider a pro. Marquette still has all the benefits of being located in a city all while maintaining a college feel. Next, Marquette has excellent academics. Although its not necessarily known for its academic intensity, the classes here range from easy As to intellectually challenging courses. This is something I like as well. I have the opportunity to take difficult classes along with a few easy classes so that my course load isn't intolerable, but I can still challenge myself to grow academically. Socially, Marquette might not be for everyone. When people think of college they usually think of frat parties and game day tailgates. At Marquette neither of these things exist really. There's usually at least one party every weekend, but they're never what you see at other state schools. Marquette is definitely more of a bar school, but that can be risky depending on whether you want to try to get into the bars. If you're looking for a total party school, Marquette is not your place. In terms of the quality of our school and dorm buildings, I would give Marquette a B. The university keeps the school buildings up to date and clean, but the dorms can be quite small and most don't have AC (not that you'll need it much in Wisconsin). However, they are taking steps to improve this. In a year they will be knocking down the famous McCormick Hall and finishing construction on an amazing new freshman dorm. One complaint I do have about Marquette are the dorm policies. Many of the visiting policies in place at Marquette are archaic and frankly dangerous for the students. Students from other dorms are not allowed to be in any other dorm past 1 or 2am (depending on if its a weekday or weekend). This rule forces students to leave their friends dorms and walk through campus very late at night. Because Marquette is located on the west side of downtown Milwaukee, its not the safest walk to be taking that late at night and students have been mugged doing it. Lastly, the one thing I would give Marquette an absolute 0/10 F grade on is the dorm food. Marquette hires a private company called Sodexo to provide the food in our dorm halls and I can confidently say it is the worst food you will ever eat in your life, beyond whatever other dorm food you may have tried elsewhere. Its so bad I use what little money I make at my campus job to buy groceries so that I don't have to eat the dorm food every day. Don't let the food scare you away though. There are ways to survive around it, but this is definitely something you should be aware of before you come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy going to Marquette when it comes to my academics. But sometimes, I feel like Marquette could do a better job with being more inclusive and understanding of minorities on campus. Also, I feel think that Marquette should get rid of some required classes and replace them with other classes that give students a world/cultural perspective on life rather than just a Jesuit perspective. ex: social welfare and justice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marquette University is a good choice for a variety of students. The social scene is large, which is nice for the student who is there to party, and this also has the effect of increasing professor availability to students are there to excel. This does cause some campus tension in that some students bother others with their behavior but due to the separation of the academic buildings and hang-outs, the academic and party scenes are generally able to coexist without tension. Even the housing tends to be separated into 'party dorms' and 'study dorms', which can be great but can also be tragic if you are stuck in a dorm that you don't want to be in. Would recommend for any party fan who can tolerate studying and for any academic who can tolerate a party.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marquette University academically speaking is a pretty solid university. There is large emphasis on theological and philosophical thought to encourage intellectual curiosity and also to help mankind. Classes at Marquette can range from pretty easy to deathly hard and there is a wide variety of majors to chose from. The school does have a religious affiliation and because of this the campus is rather conservative in respect to college campuses as a whole. In addition many of the students who do attend Marquette are pretty financially well off. This leads to not much diversity which Marquette seems to be trying to improve on. The area of Marquette is not too safe but, don't let that discourage you from attending there are many ways to keep yourself safe on campus by using "common" sense. Overall it is a good school there are definitely better institutions but Marquette has a great financial aid package and is a solid school with a decent and loyal network.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school was no where near my first choice. I applied because it was free. I visited with my parents and they fell in love, which of course made me hate it. But I sucked it up and listened to my parents for once. They were right. This place is home. I found an amazing group of friends. was able to join so many different organizations. This would have happened no matter where I went though. When people ask me what I like about my school I just say everything. The experience that I have had here is not just a college experience, it is a Marquette experience. Something only people that went to Marquette can truly understand and appreciate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly enjoy being a student here. There's always something to do or somewhere to go with friends. I wish there were more stores besides the walgreen's on campus and hopefully more companies realize they have an opportunity near a large campus, as well as being in downtown Milwaukee. Campus police are super helpful, with some of the problems I've had. Panhandling is a big problem and I feel bad not giving but I hand out a card from midnight run for services. Food is good, housing is average. Overall a good school to attend.

Great campus. Four years at Marquette are valuable and impressive. Faculties and professors are friendly, professional, and accessible. Be careful about safety issues and you will be fine.
