5 College Sophomore

Diversity: At the campus their is a wide range of different ethics groups, as well as those with different political and financial backgrounds. They try to make it accessible for all students to attend this school.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are several off campus dining restaurants that offers discounts with school i.d. cards.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The is a no tolerance for any drugs and alcoholic beverages on our campus.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No Drug Problems – I love how responsible and respectful students are to themselves and others.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I don't live on campus, so food is rather expensive for me.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Alverno is an all girl school so there are only girls. Student's looks varies. Some dress bummy all the time, but some come dressed casually/formally. Most people are very friendly and I've heard a lot of people becoming great friends from meeting one another at Alverno.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Computer labs are great, but computers are slow. And sometimes computers aren't always available, too many students and not enough computers. Wireless access is great though.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Don't Live in the Dorms – But my classmates who do don't complain! There are coffee shops hosting regular events in the two dorm buildings. Students have a choice of a single or double in rooms.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Excellent Technology Access!! Alverno offers state of the art technology from the Technology and Learning Center, a relatively new computer lab with plenty both Mac and PC computers, to the Media Hub, where students have the finest editing equipment for video and audio presentations. Wireless access is present at several areas on campus as well. Bonus? Every student is allotted 400 pages of free printing per semester.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking at Alverno is good. There is always room in the parking structure so that is convenient.

1 College Sophomore

Computers: Printing is a hassle on campus. Half the time the printers are not working and the other time they are out of paper. It also is a pain only getting a certain number of pages to print because we pay enough to go here so it makes no sense for us to have to pay extra. Wireless is also a pain to because you can not always access it.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Milwaukee is HUGE. But has a lot to offer. Right around Alverno you have the famous Miller Park which we all know is big attraction in the summer months with the Brewers. There is also beautiful views of lake Michigan and all the museums. There is never a dull moment in Milwaukee, especially with all the festivals in the summer. Alverno is a great school located in the center of all the best things Wisconsin has to offer.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: They Actually Care – The financial aid process went really smoothly. Financial Aid plus grants from the government and my school, plus my scholarship covered all of my tuition and some of my housing. Right now I'm on a very flexible payment plan. But if you need help, don't be afraid to ask, they really want to help you. The faculty really makes you feel like an actual person, not just a number of a student in a school.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I absolutely love this school. What sets us apart is that we are all females, we dont follow a regular grade scale. They grade us on specific abilities that are necessary to have in the real world. I would recommend this school to any woman who would like to be empowered, and educated well. It's truly an amazing education and a good experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on Campus – The dorms at Alverno College in Austin Hall for freshman are pretty standard. The dorms at Clare Hall are a little more classy and better equipped. But either way, living on campus is a great experience all around.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In LOVE it here everyone has the same goal in mind its perfect

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The Atmosphere – The area is very quite and great for a college like Alverno. It helps you stay focused and not be distracted by the activities going on outside the class.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Students Physicalitys – All Alverno Physicality's are great use to the students

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is unique because its able to deliever effective learning skills that we can apply to our daily life. But I don't think I would choose this school again if i could do it over again because the tuition is expensive and commute can be a hassle.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The food is expensive. There are not many student discount in the campus. One of the best places is The Mug.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's a private school. Not much attractions but there are a lot of on going activites in the school. Some cultural events. About 3 security surrounding the campus keeping the students safe. You need to take the bus to southridge mall which isn't that bad. Lots of sports.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Quick and Easy – Many times during the week Alverno hosts a variety of activities in the basement of one of the dorms called The Mug. The activities include anything from bands performing to comedy shows. It gives those who live on campus a chance to enjoy nightlife without paying for it or having to leave the grounds.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Something You Don't Find Often – It includes a fitness center free of charge for students.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Small class sizes make it hard for acceptance because of openings.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Park It! Parking is free. There is a bus line 3 blocks from campus and bus fair is cheap. Gas is a little bit above average but again parking is free and easy to find as well as near class and dorms.
