4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Alverno College is located in between the city of Greenfield and Milwaukee. Greenfield is a beautiful, clean city with cute little shops and parks, and has a lot to offer. I prefer Greenfield to Milwaukee. Milwaukee's south side area is not safe, it's dirty and full of bad people. I'm glad Alverno College is located in a safe area, closer to Greenfield, because it is an all women's college.

Campus Dining: I have eaten here multiple times and have never had a negative experience. The staff are friendly and are always willing to help you out. For example, I wanted some tomatoes for a salad of mine, and the worker went in the back and grabbed some just for me.

Majors: Alverno offers a number of majors, but not a huge variety. They do not at all cater to continuing education or adult education as they do not offer any evening classes

Majors: The process of getting into my Nursing major was relatively easy. I didn't have to do a special application process when applying to the school and there wasn't a waiting list either.

Health & Safety: Feeling Safe on Campus – The moment I steped on Alverno's grounds I felt the warmth, energy and friendliness of a college community. I am very familiar with the neighborhood around Alverno, which makes me feel more confortable and relaxed. As far as campus crime or neighborhood crime I don't know the rates but as long as I've lived a couple blocks down the road I've never felt unsafe!

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: its not really a great atmosphere. its a long walk to get to any type of store but a short drive. not everyone has cars and no bus takes us out there where we need to go to like walmart, movie stores, etc. its far from downtown but the good thing about that is we could take one bus out there.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The building at the college are in great shape and there are plenty things to do; also there are many places to study quietly, talk with friends, or study.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at Alverno college isn't great but its livable. A lot of things are broken and/or don't get fixed properly. I would suggest better repair company or something so that we are living comfortably at the dorms. The good about the dorms is that everyone interacts with each other and if we need anythings CA's are around (2 on every floor and on duty) to help us in anyway.
