Nightlife: Mug events are fun but could get better.

Scholarships: When you receive help from the Financial Aid Office, the process of receiving financial aid goes by smoother.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Alverno being an all girl college really helps the way girls not only look at each other but themselves. You would think there's too much drama since it is an all girl school, but overall my relationships between friends/faculty/family have only improved and I feel like each person within our community feels good about themselves and tries to share this feeling with everyone.

Campus Housing: With reconstruction, our campus life and buildings will only improve to what already is in good standing. It feels good to know Alverno is always trying to improve for their students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food served at events by Alverno is really good, gives a variety of different options appealing to vegetarians, vegans, or anyone else. Sometimes the food can be pricey.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know too much about the Greek life at my school, am interested to know more throughout my time at Alverno.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: To put it simply, the most accepting place I've ever been. Alverno College has been a second home to me from the moment I first walked in, where everyone and anyone is accepted for who you are and to help you explore who you can become.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the food places are fast food or chains which are close by.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Many students commute at my school and few live in the dorms. Many students drive from an hour away and drive with other students.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have never heard of anyone doing or taking drugs at my school.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There are certain students that are involved in all sports on campus, otherwise I never hear anything about how the sports teams are doing or when their games are.

4 College Junior

Computers: The computer labs are open everyday and stay open very late during the school week. Depending what classes you take, your printing quota may be used up before the semester ends. You can get wireless network access everywhere on campus except the austin hall dorm.

4 College Junior

Academics: Being a nursing student is difficult. The workload is very heavy. For the nursing program students must get an 80% or higher in classes to pass, and two drops or fails equal being kicked out of the nursing program. The facility or nursing building is old and outdated, but currently a new nursing building is being built with brand new simulators. I love that each semester you have the opportunity to have your clinicals in a different location. Senior year second semester everyone is put into and internship. I have heard from many students, usually graduates get a job within 3-4 months.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone at the school represents their own unique style. The school is ethnically diverse. Nursing students do not have a social life. Typically other students are very friendly and willing to help.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never had any issues with safety and security on campus. There have been a few problems with stealing. Police and workers from the school are constantly walking around campus on rounds to make sure everything is ok.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The school being in Milwaukee means that there is always a place to go out. There is Miller Park, lots of stores: Target, Walmart, shoe stores, dinning.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school has rules, so that students do their best to succeed. In the nursing program students must achieve an 80% or higher to pass classses. For all classes two absences equal you getting dropped from the course.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: I believe that there is only one sorority on campus and it is for honors students.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I never see anyone talk or use drugs on campus. Alverno has a very strict no illegal drugs policy. Mostly everyone is so focused on studying instead of partying all the time. If anyone were using illegal drugs on campus, then they would get expelled from the school immediately. Alverno is a very clean college.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I think that the most popular program is nursing. It is a very tough program. You must be able to get into the program, and when your in the program, you can't get no less than 80% on tests otherwise you either fail or get kicked out of the program. I heard that Alverno has one of the toughest nursing programs in the state of Wisconsin.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: We have parking spots that we can park our cars if we have one, and were right on a bus line. Usually it is local transportation, but if necessary buses can go downtown. Cost is fairly cheap via buss but if you own your own car then it can be someone expensive.

Alverno is not just a school—it's a place that teaches women to think outside of the box and to understand themselves. It becomes a home for many people.
