5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like how the 8 core abilities are the main framework for the curriculum.

The courses are very interesting, and have provided crucial and relevant information for respective fields of study. There are always a variety of courses offered, but seating is limited depending on the popularity of the major the courses fall under. Also, class sizes are great! Class sizes are usually small.

The instructors are very knowledgeable in the courses they teach. All the instructors that I have encountered so far in the communication field are very helpful. However, I did not have that same experience with the nursing program. The program, and instructors are very cold and rigid. It is a nurturing environment, but the nursing department does not seem the same way. It seems that if you fall behind as student then you must fend for yourself and the instructors offer very little as far as advice in how to move forward- I sought out my general advisor because I felt that I did not receive much help with my nursing instructors.

Overall Experience: The student career and services department is excellent in helping students identify their career interests, and seeking out internship opportunities that will best suite their career goals. The employers recruiting on campus are generally from distinguished and reputable professional organizations.

The alumni network is strong; and my experience in networking with alumni has always been positive. Many of the alum have showed a great amount of willingness in networking and providing guidance for current students.

Health & Safety: Campus crime does happen, but it is minimal. Nothing has been deemed severe. Campus security is consistently surveying the campus 24 hours a day. There are also emergency posts in every parking lot that are identifiable with a large blue light; and these emergency posts are in well lit areas and allow the student to push a button to alert security if that student is in danger. Also, upon orientation the students are encouraged to call campus security if they felt uncomfortable walking across campus during the evening, in which a person from the security team will escort the student to their vehicle.

I do not feel in danger on campus, and I feel safe to know that I do not have to walk across campus by myself if I feel unsafe.

Overall Experience: I enjoy everything about Alverno College. From the moment I enrolled I was designated an advisor, who was extremely helpful and someone who I felt provided a personal attention to me. As I entered my advanced level courses in my field of study, I was designated a new advisor who was just as helpful. The career and student services department has provided me with so much helpful and relevant information as I approach crucial moments in my junior and senior year: interest inventory tests, scouting for internships, finding jobs in my related field of interest, and more. I also particularly love that Alverno instills 8 core values that should be demonstrated and fulfilled before graduation for each student. This element is what, I believe, sets Alverno graduates apart from others, and makes Alverno graduates more marketable in the career world.

Athletics: I do not generally follow the athletic community at my school. However, the athletic equipment and workout facility is open to athletes and non-athletes; and the facilities are a great place for both types of people to workout in. Non-athletes are not discouraged in anyway of using the facilities and I like that aspect.

Athletics: There are always games going on for something, softball.. Basketball.. It's pretty cool!

Overall Experience: The overall experience, so far has been great. The professors and advisors are very open and helpful, not to mention, friendly! I love it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Some students are interested in Greek life, however not everyone on campus feels the need to be apart of Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wisconsin has students from all over the world. Campus life is supportive of students growing academically and socially to become members of a global society.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Wisconsin has a strong support for Badger athletics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the two out of four years that I have been on campus it has be for the most part a good experience. The teachers that I have picked where really good in teaching the class and helpful when a student didn't know how to do an assignment or project. Teachers work with the students and talk about other resources around campus for additional help if needed and reasonable times to meet the instructor outside of the classroom. The courses that I have taken were on a range from average being the lowest to highly interacting with the class that I look forward every time I go to the class. It depends on a student's major but for my major/minor it has been a great experience and would come back to this school again if given the chance.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From what I have witnessed and talking with people who have graduated from the college say that getting a great job that they love and finding many opportunities that give those students chances to go farther in their career and beyond to where it has given some students to go for their master's degree and or working on their doctorate degree. Finding an internships from this campus is good it depends though if the student is looking for a specific type of job to be patient since it does take time to find the job that is right for each individual student. The process itself isn't that hard just the time when accepted to the job in question.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I wouldn't know what it is like to live on campus because I haven't had the opportunity to live on campus. Though many individuals that i have talked to say it's 50-50 you either love it because it is easier for students to stay focus on school, transportation isn't a problem, and food. The other 50 is hate due to not much life outside of school all the time and interaction with the people who live on campus is okay not excellent.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: In my college we don't have "Greek Life" but if we did it would be good since the college makes it possible to have good time and in most cases no conflict or issue with such a event.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The college that I go to is very helpful in resources and with questions that a student has about anything from financial aid to internships/career opportunities. Most classes are enjoyable and fun with learning new information will and could be applied outside of college for my possible career choice. If I had to do it over i would, because the atmosphere and people at my college are helpful, stress-less most of time and teachers are there for the students.

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes because then the teachers can engage with everyone.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Alverno will help you find internships while you are still in school. They will even help you after you have graduated.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Alverno's dorms are generally bigger than the average college dorm. It's a lot more spacious and you're able to customize it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Alverno has a partnership with greeklife from another college. They mainly do a lot of volunteer service and giving back to the community.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am on the tennis team and sometimes when walking around campus, I'll get stopped by a faculty member and they will ask "Aren't you on the tennis team?". It's nice to know that the faculty and staff also keep up on the sports even though they might not attend the games.
