What's unique about your campus?

MSOE will prepare you for the engineering world (I can only speak for the engineering department). Everyone, students and professors, all work together to help the students succeed.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The hardest part about MSOE is the amount of work. MSOE is on the trimester system so professors have to cover a lot of material in only ten weeks. But if you want to be an engineer you have to be prepared to work hard.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Research the job placement rate of the school, the difficulty, and the campus life. Without a good campus life, college can be much more stressful.

What's unique about your campus?

Great coursework and amazing undergraduate degree programs because the job placement rate is very high.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A very focused person with less expectancy on a big university life and more focused on career path.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you are there to become an engineer, start studying and take summer courses. You can never learn too much; unless you do. Then, if you burn out, relax until you can study again. Then repeat the process.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who wishes to truly exercise their creative spirit should not come here. This is a place of learning and progress, not a place of culture and relaxation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When choosing a college, I strongly suggest not favoring the colleges that offer the biggest scholarship. Make sure to do your research and find out the total amount of tuition that you still would have to pay. I made the mistake of attending a private school that offered 10K/year, but did not realize that it still would have been cheaper to attend a state school. After doing the research, then definitely go on a tour of the school, and talk to college students around you. Make sure to ask some random students questions about the college because the tour guide, even if a student, will more than likely be biased and supportive of the school in most aspects. Once attending college, I strongly encourage you to get involved with the campus in anyway possible; clubs, sports, frats/sororities, on-campus jobs, volunteering. From my own experience, the more involved I got on-campus the more enjoyable my time here became. Plus several studies have shown that students that are more involved with their college perform better academically and make more friends. Life is what you make it. Your actions will determine what you get out of your college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who has a strong drive and determination to start whatever they finish. The help to pass the courses required here is plentiful, so anyone who is struggling will graduate if they do not give up and ask for the help. Even if you do have the determination to graduate, you also need to adapt to the downtown urban setting (if you didn't grow up in a city). It is quite different from attending a public state school with a large campus, but has its own advantages and can be just as, if not more, enjoyable college experience.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How I live in the heart of downtown Milwaukee where there is always exciting events going on related to the arts, sports, or entertainment. The city is packed with wonderful restaurants and bars for adults to enjoy the night scene. Plus there are two other campuses, Marquette and University of Wisconsin-Miwaukee, each located about 2 miles west and north respectively from our school, so there is never a dull moment.....especially once you turn 21 and are allowed to enjoy the downtown night life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To find the right college, you must first find out exactly what you want out of college. If you want to meet people and party then find a decent school that is known for its parties. If you wish to be in a certain fraternity or sorority and want to be academically challenged, find the best school with that greek organization. That is the only way to make the best out of college. You have to pick the one that most suites what you want. Once you do find the right college, you have to maintain the right attitude towards it. Make friends that have similar interests as you do. Being in a new environment can be a challenge but having those friends will make your transition to college that much easier.

What's unique about your campus?

The career placement here is incredible. You get to start learning career related topics first term of freshman year. The class size is small enough to get a 1 on 1 feel with the professor to make sure that you learn the material.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The labs here are so involved. Sometimes it seems that there isn't enough time to complete everything

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Participate in a shadow day, if possible, because this can help give you a feel for what life is like on a daily basis at that school. If you know an alumnus of the school, try to get in contact with them and get their perspective and advice. Read reviews on the internet if you can't visit the campus in person, but keep in mind that your experience might be different from the experience of others. Apply to at least a couple schools, so if your first choice is not for you, there are other options available. Consider in advance whether you want to stay close to home or go far away, because it will likely make a difference in how often you see your family. Plan your finances and decide whether you can handle the expenses involved with your choice of college. Value the advice of those around you, but only to a limited extent, because in the end it should be your decision.

What's unique about your campus?

The best part may be the variety of extra-curricular activities to give students an outlet from the focused and demanding class material.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I will get a good job when I graduate, because my school has a 95% placement rate in the field of interest and $48,000 average starting salary.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Milwaukee School of Engineering upholds its prestigious academic standards. If you're willing to work hard, you will most likely graduate with a degree that you're proud of and that will get you placed into a rewarding career. MSOE doesn't have the greatest night life, when you're here you're focused mostly on school. However, UWM and Marquette Universities are in walking distant. Located in downtown Milwaukee, MSOE will also give you a feel of city living, whether you like it or not.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

What is college? Some people say that college is a time and place for learning. Other people say that college is the part of your life that you use to discover more about yourself and the world. Regardless of what 'people' say, in order to make the most of the college experience, I would strongly reccommend that anyone considering college define what college means to them. There's a lot of aspects that can govern the college experience. Some examples of this are academic standing, average class size, variety of extra curriculars offered, general feel of the student body, the list could go on and on. Think about where you want to be when you get out of college and what environment will best guide you in that direction. By doing this, you will be able to focus in on the parts of college that are really important to you. This will greatly narrow your college search, and you can then further investigate the remaining schools by taking them for a test drive. Campus visits are the best way to forecast if it can provide what you're looking for from a college. Remember, it goes fast so enjoy it!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who aren't sure what major they want shouldn't consider MSOE. People who are more focused on "experiencing" college (i.e. drinking, partying, being with friends, etc.) than earning a degree shouldn't attend MSOE...they won't make it. Basically, if you're not super dedicated to working hard to earn a degree in engineering -- MSOE peobably isn't for you.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The Milwaukee School of Engineering is one of the best engineering schools in the nation, its student body is representitive of that, having mathematics as the religion of the school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Being incredibly career oriented, boasting nearly 100% placement in most majors.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a college that is in line with what the student believes holistically. Look for something that has a "faith" be it religious or not that is line with the student's paradigm, and that offers a major that the student truely loves.

My school is small, engaging and different.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for its engineering and nursing programs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell parents and/or students to thoroughly research the colleges that they are interested in. In order to make the most out of your college experience, you have to be willing to put a lot of effort into your course work and study hard because it will truely pay off in the long run. In addition to this, I would also say that it is mportant to get involved in the community and various campus organizations because it will help you network and become a well-rounded person.
