We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Cassidy

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.

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.

Amanda

MSOE is a great school. I highly recommend it to either gender pursuing engineering or nursing. The classes are rigorous but interesting, and there aren't a ton of extra classes that liberal arts schools have. The campus is in the safest part of Milwaukee, and has plenty of shops within walking distance.

Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is a small non-profit university tucked right into downtown Milwaukee. Academically, the school is very good. The class sizes are very small which creates an intimate feel and allows you to get to know your professors very well and for the professors to know you personally. Socially, there is no better place to be in Milwaukee. Everything you could possibly think of needing is within walking, biking, or a short shuttle ride away (provided by the university). As I said before, it is a small university but you can make the school feel as large or small as you would like. You can expand your horizon and walk all around the beautiful city of Milwaukee with large groups of friends, or find a close friend to play your favorite video game. While it is a high male population due to the majority of degrees offered coming in engineering, the university is trying to close the gender gap by reaching out to more females to enter the engineering workforce as well as having a very good nursing program. A small business school offers a wide variety of business degrees and allows the engineering students to learn a little bit about the business side of a company. Overall, MSOE is an outstanding university that continues to rise. Students are becoming great engineers and the jobs offered to these students back this up. Milwaukee is a great city to be in and MSOE is a great university to be a part of.

Amanda

Milwaukee School of Engineering is a credible college and will provide you with a great full time career as long as your graduate with a decent GPA. The teachers will always get involved and you make the most out of the campus life. As long as you find good friends and make it fun, it will be fun.

Colin

Overall the school is known for its academics. The athletic teams are getting better as the time passes. There are some strange people that do attend but you get that with every college. The food could be improved but its not awful. The city allows for one to do pretty much anything on the weekends. All in all its a good small college.

Jonathan

First off, my major is Biomolecular Engineering, but there was no option to enter that. MSOE is a very intellectual institution, filled with nerds and the sort. It is nearly impossible to not fit in here. There is a guaranteed group of people or an organization where you can be yourself, and nearly every kind of Club or Organization exists, from video gaming to art to student government. If one doesn't exist yet, it is very easy to create one! The classes are indeed rigorous and intense, but we also have amazing tutors and academic resources. We do have a Greek Lifestyle here, as well, if that is a student's cup of tea. Engineers, Business majors, and Nurses can fit in well at Milwaukee School of Engineering. #MSOE4me

My overall opinion of Milwaukee School of Engineering is that it’s a good academic school that is pretty good with financial aid. The only problem is, if you are a super social person, this place probably isn’t for you because the stereotypical Engineering students do go here. There is always a handful of students who are rowdy and outgoing though!

Cing

This is a tough school, it's not for everyone. Those who are willing to put a lot of time in studying are the ones do much better than those who slack off. MSOE has a good reputation on academics. Job placement is about after graduating, some students are set for a job even before graduating.

Lillian

I would go there depending on how much financial aid I received. I really like the closeness of all of the buildings on campus. I want to go for nursing and I liked that it is direct admittance into the program. The fitness facility was impressive, with how they have a gym, a rink, a track, and workout machines in the same place with the soccer field across the street.

Brianna

I enjoyed my time at MSOE. It is well known for its degrees because it has very high expectations for its students. The class sizes and easy access to study help and professors made the work load manageable. One downfall of MSOE would be the inability for most students to undergraduate research. Senior design filled this gap pretty well for me though.

Chanfais

In short, it's a decent school with okay professors and a great campus area. Be prepared to work your hardest because you go by fast. However in the end, it's all worth it as it prepares you for the real world. You're going to struggle a lot, so be prepared to look for assistance a lot. The school doesn't want you to fail so there are a lot of opportunities for help. The campus area is pretty awesome and safe as it's located around downtown Milwaukee. There's plenty of do if you have free time so you're usually never bored. If you're up for a challenge and a great reward at the end of it all, this school is for you.

Max

The amount of respect that a person gets after finishing this school is amazing and I can even notice that as only a sophomore in college here. There are so many opportunities that come out of MSOE because the professors love to see you succeed as an individual but also teach you how to work better in groups than other school, in my opinion. Worth the late nights studying and the early morning "cramming".
