4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The area surrounding Alverno College is very quiet, and not as frightening as other areas of Milwaukee. Some students may see a con in the fact that the party scene is on the East Side of Milwaukee, but I fully prefer the safe environment of Alverno and West Milwaukee. I live five minutes from the school in a nice neighborhood off Miller Park Way. I have the option of walking, driving, or taking the bus to school if I wanted to. I feel safe doing any of the three. There are an abundance of bus stops and routes located around the Alverno grounds and surrounding areas. Parking is never hard to come by, whether on campus, or in the surrounding neighborhoods.
