2 College Student

Weather: The walk to the school from parking is king of far. We have a lot of snow most of the winter, so you need to wear boots all the time.

3 College Student

Parking: I think they should add parking, if you have a later class there it is very hard to find a spot.

2 College Student

Athletics: It does not seem that many students take part in athletics offered at the school.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: I have not heard of any troubles of drug use on campus. I really do not think there are many students that take part in taking drugs.

3 College Student

Majors: You have to take a lot of extra classes before you can even start taking classes that have to do with your major. I think they make you spend a lot more time in school than you have to.

2 College Student

Majors: The work load is very heavy. It is hard to be in school full time and also work. There are so many classes you have to take that are not relevant to your major.

4 College Student

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus. A lot of the classes offered at Alverno is about diversity and culture.

College Student

Greek Life: I have not heard of our school having a Greek life at all. If we did there is no advertising or special housing for it.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: It is comfortable seeing security officers walking around campus. There has been men seen grabbing girls that were walking to the bus stop or parking structure.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It is nice being so close to Milwaukee. There is so much more to do there.

4 College Student

Academics: There are a lot of options for you at the school. A lot of people come as undeclared and are able to find a major or minor they want to pursue.

3 College Student

Academics: My major is nursing. You have to take a lot of liberal art classes before you start taking actual nursing classes. To graduate within your four years you have to go full time. Some of the rooms are re done and look nice, but others are very old and have not been updated for many years.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: They are good with visitors you can whoever you want come. The parking policies are very strict. The security checks all the lots and parking structure to make sure everyone has the right permits or passes. Most teachers are strict with attendance, you usually cannot be late for classes. If you miss three or more classes, the teacher has the option of dropping you from the class.
