3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: For a minority at Marquette, there is not many people to date or have relationships with if you are interested only in minorities. Also, I personally feel that many guys who are not minorities aren't interested in dating or getting to know a girl who is a minority.

College Sophomore

Parking: I don;t know much about parking on campus because I do not have a car. But, I hear from other people that it is not to expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food on campus is decent, but for the most part it does not change. So it is easy to get tired of eating the same thing week after week, even though you can with it up every dat of the week.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The city is easily accessible to the students, especially because of our bus passes, but because Milwaukee is not a college town, there is not much to do when you are off campus. Unless you go to another university to visit.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Having a computer or simply being accessible to a computer is very important at Marquette because most, if not all teachers, require papers to be typed. However, if you do not have a computer, there are computers in the dorms and tons in the libraries that are accessible to the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even though there are some inequalities at Marquette that many people son't address, I feel that I have learned a lot about myself at this University. I have met friends that I will probably keep for the rest of my life and I have learned how necessary it is for me to stand up for and defend my beliefs.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: On campus, it is very easy to get away with underage drinking and doing drugs. Especially taking pills, because many students take them to stay up all night and study for exams. In the weekends, many students don't care about hiding alcohol because they know Resident Assistants can't enter rooms without a reason and you can easily pass Desk Receptionists when you get into the dorms. However, when on the streets, minority students, especially black students, are more often stopped by DPS officers and their parties are more often shut down then whites parties.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: I enjoy the campus and have made some good friends here. There are a lot of different types of activities to do on campus as well. However, the activities do not cater to the minority communities on the campus. Also, DPS is more likely to shut down minority events early, but allow white students to drink and party.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is a lot, however most of the teachers try their best to help students out, even individually.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The University does not require a lot of new financial aide opportunities for students already attending, even though the tuition is constantly raised. However, they try to give a good amount for incoming Freshman.

4 College Junior

Majors: I applied into my program as in incoming freshman. I didn't encounter many challenges since I was in from the beginning, I did not need to worry about transferring or applying into any thing. For the DPT program we had to complete a different more specific essay to apply to the program.

5 College Junior

Majors: Now that I am in the professional phase of the DPT program, it is awesome! I love the course work, our faculty and esteemed professors as well as my amazing classmates. We may have every class together, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I really enjoy the clinical aspect of my program and cannot wait for my second one this summer.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: LIMOs on campus are great transportation to get around at night, especially if you are traveling alone. Otherwise to get downtown, it is cabs or the city bus or a friend DD. Mostly house parties for the undergrads, with a bigger bar scene for those of age.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I personally loved every experience I had with campus housing. It is a fantastic place to meet people and have everything you could need within or across the street from your building.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing options vary widely and the popular buildings are always quick to go first so undergrads really need to know where they would like to live early on to get into the building they would like. Studio buildings almost always have availability. Prices range from cheap to expensive depending on location, number of people per bedroom, etc.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: With any organization there will be good and bad, however I had an amazing experience with the sorority that I joined. It really helped me to meet some amazing people, that I never would have met otherwise and helped develop me into the leader that I am today. I loved getting to volunteer and do service with my sisters as I was really looking for a way to get involved in the Milwaukee community with volunteering my time and talents.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Our residence hall visitation policy is pretty strict. I understand it is for safety purposes since we are situated in an urban environment, however it would be nicer if we could check in friends to stay the night past 10pm and have extended visitation hours on the weekends and week nights. Recently the policy has been changed to begin charging fines for drinking and visitation violations, since I am older I have not witnessed 1st hand how this has effected our undergraduate population.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Living in a urban setting sets one up for safety issues, and many cannot be helped. However if students are smart, campus is a very safe place. Our Department of Public Safety is amazing with escorts and surveillance 24/7.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Being in a city increases our off-campus dining immensely. It is always a joy to venture into a new area of the city and try a new restaurant. Milwaukee has a wide variety from delicious hole-in-the-wall spots to everyone's favorite chain restaurants, there is really something for everyone!

3 College Junior

Diversity: While attending a private, Catholic University it is bound to be less diverse to begin with. However Marquette has begun making strides to creating a more diverse as well as unified student body. I have worked with a wide variety of student groups and I am always so amazing, how despite all of our differences the student leaders are able to come together and really make an effective team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being here because it is a unique experience different than any of my friends who attend different universities. It's hard to explain my experience because it is so indescribable. I never imagined I would be this happy to be where I am today, answering these questions on my favorite campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have never had an internship, so unfortunately I cannot answer this question. From hearing my peers experiences, they love internships. I plan to have an internship because I want to gain experience in my field and have background in what I want to do when I get an actual job. I've also learned that most people who intern for a company end up working for that company full time after their internship ends.

College Freshman

Majors: I have never had an internship.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My major is often recognized as a difficult one. When I tell people what it is, they usually say, "wow, good luck". So far, I haven't seen a harder schedule than any of my friends in different programs. Of course I am only a freshman, so this will probably change within the next few semesters. What I have heard though is that graduating from Marquette with an engineering degree is outstanding, and many people will recognize you for it.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: We have campus LIMOS that constantly circle campus. You can even call the safety services and they will send one to your location to pick you up. Also, if you find yourself off campus and scared for your safety, you can call and they'll send a campus security car to pick you up. Marquette is very good when it comes to making sure students are getting around safely. Local transportation is good because there are buses constantly running up and down Wisconsin ave (right in the middle of campus) that go downtown to various locations. Also, cabs are easy to call, and are usually at your location within ten minutes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

It is almost unanimous—Marquette students could not be more satisfied with their experience here. Almost every student who looks back at their experience says they would make the same decision all over again if they could. Even if a student experienced uneasiness or uncertainty at the start, they almost never regret their decision in the end. Yes, money may be an issue, the campus is not all that diverse, and studying hard is a must, but hey, no school is perfect. Marquette can offer more than you may expect, like a welcoming atmosphere, distinguished faculty, and a noteworthy academic reputation.

During the college selection process, Marquette is often a top pick among prospective college students due to a number of factors. Sure, students are quick to recognize the drawbacks, but most acknowledge the beneficial qualities Marquette can provide, such as the strong academic foundation, top-quality professors, and an endless amount of entertainment opportunities in a major city location. Most of all, a feeling of small-town community togetherness makes Marquette feel unique to the students here. With all things considered, if you can swing the cost of a Marquette education, then the price is right—so come on down. Of course, like any experience in life, college is what you make it. So get involved, make new friends, and try new experiences, and it will be the time of your life.
