2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms at Alverno College are very boring, you have to really decorate it to have any personality in the room. Although they are very close to the school and the girls are quiet very friendly.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: I love the food options in the cafeteria. They have all kinds of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is always something different whether it is Asian food or Italian food. They also have healthy snacks for between classes.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It's all women. I like it and I feel comfortable. I haven't encountered much drama

3 College Senior

Transportation: There's taxi's and buses anyone can take to go somewhere. Also, friends who have cars are willing to help as well.

4 College Senior

Weather: I like the weather here, mainly because I'm from Kansas and it's hot. I love Milwaukee's cooler weather

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Alverno is a tobacco free campus and smoking is not allowed anywhere on campus

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Being a weekend college student I haven't seen any drug usage and there is no pressure at all. I cannot answer for the weekday student.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Campus has a full cafeteria and also a coffee house. The college is close to many neighborhood restaurants with a large variety of choices in price. Also close to Walmart and pick n save.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The only men at Alverno are in the masters courses. The "typical" student at Alverno is not typical at all. The women of Alverno are of all walks of life. The weekday students consists primarily of women who have recently graduated high school who are taking on the typical college experience, whereas the weekend students range from recent high school graduates to women who have raised their children or grandchildren and are looking to further education or to change their career.

5 College Freshman

Parking: Plenty of parking in several lots, also has a parking structure.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Alverno is slightly away from the 'action' within Milwaukee. However, to get to any restaurant, museum, live music,etc will take less than 20 minutes to drive or less than one bus ride away.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Alverno is not the typical college. Many students live within the city and drive in for class. The school is designed with the working adult in mind and has many options for the direct out of high school student. Alverno has an abundant amount of resources.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: 98% of the time, anyone can walk into a computer lab at have access to a computer. During assessment week, there may be a challenge in getting a computer right away. Anyone with wi-fi capabilities on their laptops will have access to the network with no issues throughout most of the college.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not utilize on campus housing but was considering and the options were reasonable in cost and flexible in housing options. I only opted not to because I am able to live close to campus in an apartment for a comparible monthly rent- this was just a personal choice.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I believe that the majors that are offered at Alverno give a slight twist on the same old or typical approach to a career- both educationally and once you are out in your field. My major is Communications, management and technology and this is an entirely well rounded approach to a career in communications. I am learning skills in management that are helping me most of all learn how to better manage myself, but also to understand how a successful environment is managed. The technology aspect is keeping me in the know on what systems are being used in my field now- these additional aspects in my major are extremely powerful and I am finding them helpful. During my evaluation process I saw that most of the majors at Alverno take this approach- nothing is simple or plain, it all has its own little individual flare, as do all people.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall on Alvernos campus offers a variety of items for all hours and meals of the day. They even accommodate gluten free and vegan diets and have lots of snacks and beverages available almost around the clock. The dining hall is open late, until eleven p.m. so it is convenient for those who are coming from work or have been in school all day and just need some nourishment.

4 College Junior

Computers: The computers at Alverno College is very good. Students have easy access to the computers and the staffs are always available to help. So far in my College years at Alverno, I have not experience any difficulties in using the computers. Usually if there are any problems with the computer, it can easily be fix.

5 College Junior

Majors: The internship at Alverno College is excellent. Even though most college do not require students to do an internship, Alverno College require students to do at least one internship in their major. I think that this is an excellent idea because it gives students the opportunities to explore in a professional field to see if the career that they are seeking for is truly suited for them or not. I really appreciate the encouragement that Alverno offers for internship and the use of an internship for the students.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Alverno College has a very nice neighborhood. It is very peaceful and clean. But off campus, there really isn't much to do near campus. Most entertaining activities available are off campus, such as the shopping center, or dining in at restaurants near by. Also most fun things to do are usually down town or at a far distance from school.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are people from many different ethnic and religions background at Alverno College. I feel that Alverno College, being an all female school, is very diverse. There are people from different ethnic backgrounds and I could see that everyone here is very accepting and helpful of one another. Also, students, staffs and faculties are willing to learn and exposed more about other religion and ethnic diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather does not really affect the campuse because all of our building with the exception on one dorm is connect by hallways and even underground tunnels.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus police keep the campus safe and make sure we are well informed about anything that happen on campus that may be of any danger to us.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: They are clean and up to date. They are being renovated as time permits and as the need arise. The ground keepers work diligently to keep Alverno looking beautiful and suitable for the students, faculty and staff.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: My school is women's only college and the class sizes are small. The teachers are awesome and the atmosphere is great. Everyone is focused and there is help for everything that you could possibly need help with.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am happy with my program so far. My goal is to be a great nurse, but not only a nurse; but a compassionate friend to those under my care.
