I really like being at MSOE. The only downside to the school that I see is the food and the residence. The food could definitely be better, but it is not terrible; definitely bearable for a few years. The residence halls aren't the best, but they aren't unlivable. There are just simple maintenance issues that get irritating after they aren't taken care of for a few days/weeks. The washer and dryers aren't that great either. My advice: pick a day and time when no one else goes, and use the same washer and dryer every time. Or, you can buy a drying rack and it can save you a dollar a load; it's not a bad idea, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if you payed to dry your clothes. The campus itself is not very handicap accessible, but there are ways of getting around. Other than that, the school is pretty amazing. The people are very accepting, there are plenty of things to get involved on and off campus, and the campus is small, so travel time in between classes is very short. I highly recommend applying here! Especially if you are looking for a place to challenge you (a lot!), to make great friends, and gain a high quality education!

MSOE has a well rounded student body, faculty, and staff. There are many opportunities on campus that students can partake in and a wide variety of organizations on campus. It's tough school but very rewarding with the level of education that the students graduate with.

Geovani

Milwaukee School of Engineering is a college that definitely values the creativity and freedom of the students. The individuality of each student is realized and valued. There are many opportunities for exploration and leisure through sports, music events and artistic expression. There are many help centers where students can tutor each other; along with professors that could provide aid through email. I find it quite a wonderful school.

Alyssa

MSOE is a difficult school to say the least. It is not for the faint of heart, the undecided, or the uncommitted. Sometimes MSOE will make you want to quit. You'll want to drop out. The dorms aren't the best and the food can be meh, but at the end of the day if you want an education in Engineering, Nursing, or Business MSOE is the place to go. They offer incredibly courses from which you will learn a lot, knowledgeable professors, and a jam packed four years. It is expensive, but you pay for what you get in learning. In our trimester system we get more credits than nearly any other school which means more classes, more experience, and more preparation for the real world. If you want to learn and be ready to hit the ground running when you graduate, MSOE is the place for you.

    I'd go back to Sophmore year in high school and continually get on myself about accurately planning a budget on how much school really is going to cost, and fill out more scholarships then and over the 2 years following that. Not filling out every scholarship that I could caused alot of trouble later on. If I had done this maybe I wouldn't have been so stressed and had come close to not having the funds at all.
