4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I don't know how strict administration is regarding student social lives, but I do know that there are very strict guidelines in place for academic dishonesty and attendance.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live near campus, but there are always signs showing available spaces for rent very close to campus.

College Junior

Greek Life: Our campus does not have sororities that I am aware of.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is always security patrolling the campus, as well as parking areas. There is a security guard available if a student needs an escort to their vehicle after a night class.

College Junior

Nightlife: I have never been to nor heard of parties on campus or near school.

5 College Junior

Majors: The curriculum for the nursing program is set up differently than at most schools, we learn by "population", for example "Healthy population" is generally the high school to middle-aged population. By learning by population, we are more well-rounded in our experience as we develop into nurses. We are also required to participate in volunteer projects around the city and we are encouraged to study abroad (Alverno offers long term and short term commitments for study abroad) to learn how other countries utilize nurses. Learning in this way gives a very diverse perspective and helps us learn to look at different ways of life, which becomes a very important aspect of a nursing career.

Majors: Have not done an internship yet

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The community itself around campus is good, very supportive, and full of hard-working families, however, if you venture too far off campus the areas get to be dangerous especially for people from out of town who do not know the areas to avoid. The downtown area is great there is a lot to do an see, but again, unless students are aware of the "safer" areas, it can be dangerous to venture off campus. If I were to stay in this area, which is not in my plans, I would stay very close to campus or downtown, but I wouldn't even consider most areas in Milwaukee.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There are several sports offered on campus but they are not very well advertised. I only know about sporting events on campus if I purchase a schedule for the school year.

Most students who have made it through the majority of their years at Alverno say that they cannot imagine being anywhere else. In fact, many students who leave Alverno to go to other schools because of finances or because they didn't think Alverno was a good fit, often come back. Alverno is not just a school—it's a place that teaches women to think outside of the box and to understand themselves. It becomes a home for many people. Alverno graduates go on to become important women in their workplaces, communities, churches, and homes. The College offers students a unique opportunity to take a really good look at themselves and say, "Who am I?" and "Is this who I really want to be?"
