Transportation: Bus system isn't user friendly and quite confusing – The bus system does not seem very user friendly and quite confusing. The exchange students I have roomed with, who were used to great public transportation thought it was really hard to get around Milwaukee.

Transportation: Parking is not an issue – Parking on campus has become more accessible and available with the addition of the parking structure. No matter what building you have class in; parking is usually never an issue. Every building has its own parking lot. There is ample parking on all of the streets surrounding campus as well. If the individual lots become full, the best option is the structure. It is relatively close to the main building on campus and once in the main building the other entire building are connected through hallways and an underground tunnel.

Transportation: Milwaukee buses are slow and not reliable – I don't use it. I have a car and pretty much drive myself where I need to go. Milwaukee buses are not reliable. Not to mention, it takes forever to get anywhere.

4 Niche User

Parking: A lot more spots – Before the parking structure we had a small lot that wasn't only for the dorms. Now there is a lot more places to park. so it's crowded but there is almost always a place to park that is close.

4 Niche User

Parking: I like the parking structure because it makes it easy to find a spot right away. The structure has an elevator too which is sweet!

Parking: Parking's easy, what can I say?

4 Niche User

Parking: Always a spot close to where you are going – For residents, parking is nice because you can always find a parking spot. It may not be as close as I wanted it to be. Parking is around all buildings so there is almost always something close to where you are going.

Parking: Lots of rules about where to park – There is ample parking now that there is a Parking Structure which has three floors. However, there are strict rules for where students can park and where they have to park if they live in the dorms. Which kind of sucks. It would be nice if students could park wherever they wanted to.

4 Niche User

Parking: With the addition of the parking structure, there is a lot more space for both residents and non but there is still a race to find the good parking spot as it fills up quickly. It's a good idea to get to campus early.

Niche User

Parking: Note of advice: Do not play hacky-sack on top of the parking structure. The Security personal will not be appreciatory.

5 Niche User

Parking: I love that I don't have to pay for parking! Everywhere else in Milwaukee makes you pay for parking!

4 Niche User

Parking: Try to make it to school 10 mins before your class – Do try to make it to school at least ten minutes before you have class. Even though we have a parking structure, it still takes a few minutes to walk down from the fourth floor if that is the only place to park.

4 Niche User

Parking: Recently Alverno College had a parking garage built on campus! This rocks because I live on campus and it is much easier now to finding parking spots! People used to have to park on the street and in the surrounding area.

Campus Strictness: I feel safe – I like knowing that when I come back to the dorms after being out that I am safe. Knowing there are cameras at all the entrances makes me really feel safe. I don't think they invade our privacy at all. Just keep us safe.

3 Niche User

Campus Strictness: CAs are a mixed bag – CAs can be a little overboard with watching residents but some of them are never around. It really depends on which floor you're on or who your CA is. Some of them are cool about rules and some of them are just ridiculous. Although they are just doing their job.

4 Niche User

Campus Strictness: Rules make me feel safer – Students think the rules for living in Austin Hall are stupid- no boys after 2 am or guests can only spend so many nights per semester but it makes me feel safe. Students can't just walk into the dorms without signing in so it's not like all the college shootings you hear where random students walk into dorms and shoot someone.

3 Niche User

Campus Strictness: Follow rules while living on campus – I haven't had problems with the rules personally but I do know people who have had issues. People just need to follow the rules if they want to live on campus.

2 Niche User

Campus Strictness: The rules can be frustrating – Living on campus is pretty strict because students can't leave their guests in their rooms. Which is kind of ridiculous. I think that the rules are frustrating because they don't allow for a lot of leeway.

3 Niche User

Campus Strictness: Driniking under age is not allowed on campus at all – Drinking under age is not allowed on campus at all. When my roommate was over 21, she was able to drink in the room with the door shut. A couple years ago someone puked on my rug and threw it out. There is this idea that if you are going to get drunk, don't come back to campus. Which is nice.

3 Niche User

Campus Strictness: Sometimes I think Alverno is a bit overly strict. With students who have special issues, they are not necessarily understanding and there is a lot of favoritism. Some students get personal favors from faculty while others are not given consideration.

4 Niche User

Campus Strictness: People are respectful of their living spaces – Unlike a lot of my friends, students that live on campus are not fined for damages to hallways. Mostly because students are respectful of their hallways, common spaces and their rooms.

Campus Strictness: The rules are stupid – The rules are stupid. I am going to move to Clare next year so I can have boys spend the night. As a freshman, you have to live in Austin Hall. In Austin Hall, all your guests have to be signed in with an ID. It ticks me off because I'm an adult and I should be able to do what I please.

3 Niche User

Campus Strictness: Yes, there are more rules at Alverno than most colleges. The Alverno College campus is smoke-free. In Austin Hall, boys are not allowed to sleep over. However, all the rules have reasoning behind them. I also like that there aren't drinking parties on campus where we have to worry about our friends underage drinking.

5 Niche User

Drug Safety: There are drugs on campus? There are drugs on campus? I guess I haven't really experienced them.

5 Niche User

Drug Safety: If they do it, they don't do it here – People if they do it, they don't do it here. There are people who come back smashed or high but if they are caught repeatedly, they are put through AA or other drug treatment programs.
