Drug Safety: Really hidden drug scene – Drug Scene? It's really hidden. I know there are drugs on campus but most people are at least respectful enough to not do them here.

4 Niche User

Drug Safety: Not really a big drug problem – A couple of years ago there was a girl who vomited on my carpet outside my dorm room and threw it away. She didn't get into trouble or anything. Other than that, I don't see drugs on campus.

Drug Safety: Drugs just aren't prevalent on campus – I know girls that live on campus that smoke weed but they don't do it on campus. Drugs just aren't prevalent on campus. I think Alverno has done a good job of banishing drugs: they even got rid of tobacco on campus!

Drug Safety: What drug scene? None. I have not experienced any drugs on campus. People do smoke cigarettes in their cars even though it's against the rules.

Drug Safety: Zero tolerance – Drugs and drinking on campus are not tolerated at all. There are students living on campus who are of age and allowed to drink. They are allowed to do so as long as it doesn't happen in the dorms or anywhere on campus. If they are found with alcohol on campus, they will suffer the appropriate consequences. Drugs, however, are not tolerated at all. There is a zero tolerance policy for drug use on campus. Drug use will result in immediate dismissal from the campus and is reported to the local authorities.

Drug Safety: It's a pretty clean campus – Aside from sometimes randomly smelling pot in the dorms, which is hardly ever, there isn't really a drug scene. There's not a group of people who hover around doing drugs, if anyone does, they tend to keep to themselves. It's a pretty clean campus.

Drug Safety: ehhhh...sometimes Clare smells like pot, but other than that...

Drug Safety: Subtle but present drug scene – Let's just say that if I didn't work with food here on campus I might not have known that there was a drug scene on campus.

Greek Life: Sororities mean lots of drama – There is kind of this rivalry between some of the sororities. Lots of drama. People who are looking for the real experience should not look at Alverno for sororities.

Greek Life: What Greek life? Sometimes we have Greek food in the commons!

Greek Life: Sororities are pretty stuck up – When the sororities actually do things, which isn't often, they do it through UWM (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) or Marquette (University). They are pretty stuck up and do not allow some people in. I would never do it.

1 Niche User

Greek Life: Didn't know we had sororities – As a mother with three children, I never even knew we had sororities at Alverno!

3 Niche User

Greek Life: Great way to meet boys – Being part of a sorority helped me meet people outside of Alverno. It's a great way to meet frat boys!

1 Niche User

Greek Life: It is non-existent to me and if there are any, Alverno does not endorse or promote them. There are rumors that some of the sororities only allow African Americans in. That's pretty discouraging. In fact, the entire media generated image of sororities and fraternities is in contrast with what Alverno stands for.

1 Niche User

Greek Life: Sororities don't really have a presence on campus – I have seen a few lockers with logos about sororities but they don't really have a presence on campus.

4 Niche User

Greek Life: Sororities are a great way to meet ppl outside of school – I was part of a sororities Community Service Mentoring Youth of Latin subculture. It was an awesome experience for me! I wanted to give back to my community and being part of this sorority was awesome! It was a great way to meet new people outside of school.

1 Niche User

Greek Life: Sororities aren't prominent on campus – I have heard of one sorority for sure but other than that, not really. Alpha Kappa Alpha which really isn't on campus, just advertising.

1 Niche User

Greek Life: We have sororities on campus? We have sororities on campus? Really?

Nightlife: A lot of hip artsy lounges too – There is a lot of hip artsy lounges if the bar scene really isn't your thing. I like just going somewhere to relax and have a martini and not have to deal with the young preppy college students.

5 Niche User

Nightlife: There is really something for everyone – There is really something for everyone- goth bars, latin clubs- piano bars- you name it, you'll find it in Milwaukee!

3 Niche User

Nightlife: Water Street – If you want jocks and sports bars, Water Street is the place to be. However, watch your drinks because it is definitely a place for girls to be taken advantage of. Girls that frequently go to Water Street are called Water Street whores.

5 Niche User

Nightlife: Going out in Milwaukee is a blast! Going out in Milwaukee is a blast! I love going to Club Anything because it offers a definite alternative feel to the usual hip hop and rap scene.

4 Niche User

Nightlife: Lots of bars – Bars Bars Bars Bars.. And if you like smoky bars, Milwaukee is the place for you! There is a bar on almost every corner that a church isn't on. There are clubs too but not as many. And there really aren't many non-smoking anything in Milwaukee.

3 Niche User

Nightlife: Semi-cheap places – As a student, I don't get to go out because I don't have a lot of money. However, there are lots of places to go that are semi-cheap.

3 Niche User

Nightlife: Have to commute all the way downtown – The night life is not located by Alverno which is awful because people have to commute all the way down town. This is very difficult considering the lack of Alverno's bus pass. It's not as easy to get around as it could be.
