2 College Student

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

4 College Freshman

Athletics: With Alverno having the basketball team going far this year, it felt great knowing our school was really into supporting them.

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 Sophomore

Athletics: Our college has a week long table sections where clubs and sport activities have sign up sheets for people to join. It make's joining clubs and the sport teams very easy.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Spots are a big part of campus life. it's not just about the sports but the people and how hard they work along with meeting new people and having fun.

Athletics could honestly be better. There is very little of a following for the teams, and the majority of students that tries out makes it because there is such a small pool of students to choose from. The athletics program is becoming bigger, but it is quite slow. On the plus side, students, faculty, and staff can get into games for free, so there is no excuse for not checking out some games. The intramural sports have failed miserably. Everyone is so busy at Alverno with their outside lives and jobs that no one has time to play sports for fun. The College even tried having a monthly dodgeball night, and only two people showed up.

Even though Alverno sports are slowly growing, they still have a long way to go. But, honestly, Alverno's mission is not to have the best basketball players in Milwaukee; its mission is to give women the chance to have a higher education. An active athletics department is going to take a long time to develop, but with the continually increasing student population, there will naturally be more and more students who are interested in playing sports.

Most Popular Sports
The basketball team often draws a decent crowd. This may be because they play during the winter, when more students are likely to watch them, unlike during the spring or early fall when students would rather be having fun in the sun instead of watching softball or soccer.
Most Overlooked Teams
The track team has some serious athletes who train just as hard as the soccer or basketball players, but do not receive the same recognition from fellow students. However, almost all of the teams do not get the attention they deserve.
School Spirit
The sense of community felt on campus is not exactly school spirit. There is definitely a feeling that the students are all there together, but it's not school spirit in the traditional sense of wearing school colors and painting faces at athletic events. But Alverno is the thread that weaves all alumnae together.
Getting Tickets
Students get in free to any sporting event at Alverno.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The best place to take a walk is down Oklahoma Avenue toward Lake Michigan. This, however, is not on school grounds. Alverno's campus is in the middle of a residential area, and therefore, the campus itself is quite small, and there aren't any vast trails or wooded areas for walks.
