1 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It is an all girls school so guys are nonexistent.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are students from all different walks of life and everyone is very accepting of that.

2 College Student

Guys & Girls: It is an all girls school, so there is not meeting guys at the school. Most girls already have boyfriends and they can come visit. Most girls wear sweat pants and comfy close to class. Some girls do dress up though. I feel like a lot of people at the school are going for nursing, but I have been learning about other majors girls are taking.

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.

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.

Since Alverno is an all-girls school, there are women of all shapes, sizes, and from every walk of life, so it really just depends on what you consider attractive. Students at Alverno are generally friendly and more than happy to assist new students, and there is a sense of undeniable community. Women at Alverno are also incredible listeners, engaging conversationalists, and well-rounded individuals. Even though this is a women's school, there are a handful of male students, but they are either part of a master's or licensure program. They are usually older and, therefore, not typical young college hotties.

Alverno is largely a commuter college, with a large portion of nontraditional students who have children or are married. There is not a promiscuous feeling at all on campus because Alverno is about empowering women through education. Students are at Alverno either to study, go to class, or hang out with friends—not to try to hook up with random people.

Best Places to Hook Up
There really isn't a hookup scene at Alverno.
Social Scene
The social scene borders on casual professional. Walking down the hall, students smile at one another, and everyone feels really quite welcomed, but this is where the interaction ends. Students generally do not start talking to people in the lunch line or become friends with someone they don't already know. Students stick together based on their areas of study, and most friendships are made in class. Students who play sports are likely to hang with other students who play sports. Everyone is friendly, but not completely outgoing. On the other hand, if you start talking to someone, they will carry on a conversation with you, even if they don't know you.
Hookups or Relationships?
A large majority of girls that lives on campus have serious boyfriends who go to school in Milwaukee or in other areas of the country. The College's community advisers have even done programs about long-distance relationships because they are so common. There isn't a lot of gossip about random hookups, although there are always a few who choose this route. Most of the girls on campus have significant others.
Dress Code
Most students at Alverno dress professionally because they are either coming or going to their jobs. However, there is a large percentage of students that dresses casually in jeans and a T-shirt.
