Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants around Alverno College are limited but are also nice and cheap. Most of the places around Alverno are opened 24 hours, this is good because you are able to go off of campus and work on homework. The atmosphere's in the restaurants are very warm and welcoming. My favorite place to go is Denny's because it is always quiet and open. I am able to accomplish a lot of my homework when I am there. Noodles & Company is a great place to go with your friends when you are feeling pretty lonely or just want to get away for a few hours. Leon's Custard is an amazing ice parlor that is old school. It is a drive in and has a very loving touch. The ice cream there is incredible.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: My school's academic programs are different than any other college. First the school does not have a grading system. You are graded by a simple S or U. An S stands for success, while an U stands for Unsuccessful. This makes the atmosphere feel a lot better than what they I felt like in High School. The pressure is a lot less and you are able to work with other students. The way Alverno bases your education on is by simply having 8 values in which they also interact with the community. Alverno wants women to become well-known to all different aspects, not just sitting and being forced information. Overall, Alverno is an awesome academic school because they may grade harshly, but it is for our own benefits.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Alverno College has a great campus atmosphere due to the way all of the students interact with each other. When passing people in the hallway they all say hello and it makes you feel welcome, no matter what happens. The students are always welcoming and so are the teachers, they want to help you just as mush as other students do. Alverno makes the environment seem friendly and very welcoming.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The meals can be kind of expensive, but if you out money on your id, you get a 10% discount on purchases

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never had any problems on campus and when you hear of someone who has, you normally hear that things are working on being resolved or they have been

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Alverno is more than just a school. They work in an ability based education system, to help you with the skills you will need out in the workforce, such as communication, analysis, problem solving, valuing, social interaction, developing a global perspective, effective citizenship, and aesthetic engagement.
