College Senior

Facilities: The library is a great place to study unless it is right before midterms or finals because the students who have not been studying all year now believe that they need to start and thus take up all the spaces.

College Senior

Nightlife: On just about any Thursday, Friday and Saturday night one can walk around and find parties at nearly every corner. There is a new policy where the person throwing the part gets fined so they have seemed to have been toned back a bit.

Campus Dining: Compared to other universities MU has the cheapest and best meal plan since it is all you can eat. However, the dinning halls tend to close early which is obnoxious especially for those you have late classes or are involved in sports.

College Senior

Majors: I have not had an internship here though I have held a job at a nearby elementary school. The staff there was great except for one of the secretaries who became annoyed every time she has to buzz someone in or answer a phone call though that has nothing to do with the school itself.

1 College Senior

Majors: Getting into the elementary program was not difficult but staying in it is horrible. The amount of work required is so stressful that many end up getting sick from the stress or dropping the major. At Marquette you are required to double major which takes a lot out of a person. It is a full course load every semester unless you can test out of the gen eds or take summer classes though only a few actually transfer over to MU. A majority of my class will not be graduating on time however they were not aware of this until the end of their junior year, it kinda puts a damper on things. Most of my elementary major friends, myself included, wish we had never chosen the major. We believe that secondary would have been better or choosing elementary at a different university.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We are all about basketball. Basically the only thing talked about is basketball, we do not have a football, baseball, or hockey team. Though there are a few club sports that students can join. Some are better than others.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places around campus to eat and more the further you go. Some are great while others are worth skipping.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The girls tend to run around in yoga pants, Uggs and North Face jackets carrying their Starbucks. Guys typically have more of a variance in their looks.

Local Atmosphere: There is not much right by the school but with a simple bus ride it is easy to get anywhere in the city, as long as you know directions. It is easy to end up in the wrong neighborhood so make sure you look up the route ahead of time.

2 College Senior

Diversity: I feel that as a Jesuit institution there is little room for acceptance. God intended man to be with woman and that is that. However, that being said, there is a LBGTQ community where students hang out freely without the concern of being judged. As with anywhere I have met people who are less tolerant of those different from them, they're less than humane remarks hurt but those people are every unfortunately.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Like all schools there are good and bad professors. The same can be said for TAs. Except for the gen eds most classes have a good teacher to student ratio with a majority of teachers willing to see students after class. I had one professor who would come in the day before every test and sit in the library willing to answer any and all questions that we may have for him. He was willing to help no matter the cost to him, he truly made me feel as though he cared about his students. The unfortunate part is that he was not technically a professor but a grad student. Signing up for classes can be a hassle because all the good ones tend to close early and depending on the department they are not willing to give out permission numbers.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There is a student career service center where students are encouraged to go in order to help them figure out what they want to do with their lives. It seems to be a good idea but I have rarely heard of it actually helping students.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lucked out and got a decent dorm freshmen year and a sweet one sophomore year. Depending which building you live in the rooms are tiny, heat/coldness unbearable though most buildings are pretty close to the academic buildings. The cost between the different dorms is outrageous when you look at the difference, I don;t know why anyone would want to pay more for McComick when better dorms are far less expensive. Sophomore housing is the worse headache on the face of the planet. Not only do you have to figure out who you want to live with and where, but then you have to hope that by the time your time rolls around there are still available spaces.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's so much fun! You just have to network to find a group of friends that you get along with. Even in college, some people still seem to stick to the friend-clicks they're comfortable with.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is a lot of campus crime, including mostly robberies and drug activity. However, there is a campus police force called DPS that is there to protect us (although they seem to value writing up students for underage drinking more than keeping the streets safe, which is ridiculous).

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's pretty easy to find off-campus housing. However, crime rates are high in Milwaukee.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: While it contributes well to the social atmosphere, many Greek students have a snobby attitude as if they're better than non-Greeks…though not all of course.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity is obvious on this campus, and everyone is widely accepting of it. This is a Catholic school, but other religeons are tollerated, and not discriminated.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I haven't been to any sports games, but I've heard they are exciting, and plan to attend at some point.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: pretty open and welcome to anyone, always pleasant conditions in facilities

College Sophomore

Facilities: Honestly, I don't really know how to answer this.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I love how many support options there are for not only sexual assault victims, but anyone who needs them. The counseling center is awesome, and I can go there to talk to people about my family issues I'm currently facing, and it doesn't cost me anything.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I bet a lot of people will disagree with me, but I like having strict policies on my campus. It ensures me that my peers and I can have a safer more enjoyable college experience. Most of the people who complain about the DPS officers are the ones who have made them angry. Personally, I enjoy having them around to help me, and they are always pleasant.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I think it was relatively easy to get into the college of arts and sciences. Best of all, although there are annoying science and math courses everyone must take, this college offers courses for people who are not strong in those areas, so they can still pass the class and gain credit.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I truly think being in my program at school is wonderful. I have professors who are psychology researchers. Not only do tey bring an abundance of knowledge and expertise, but there are always research assistant positions available.

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.
