4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Alverno focuses on the abilities graduates will need in the real world and has created a curriculum surrounding those abilities (problem solving, analysis, global perspective, social interaction, valuing, communication, aesthetic engagement, and effective citizenship). You can tell an Alverno woman from well-rounded skill set and her ability to constantly self-assess efficiently and thoroughly. Because of the ability-based curriculum, there are no grades. It may seem crazy, but it is highly beneficial. There is no focus on aiming for the highest grade, but instead there is focus on reaching your highest potential. Not only is the curriculum unique, but Alverno's atmosphere draws its students in. The moment I stepped on campus for a tour, I felt wanted and like I was already part of the family. At Alverno, you are not a number.

Overall Experience: Most professors are great I have encountered some (not a lot) that are not that great. A lot of the courses offered are very good and they are challenging. Grading is also a bit different, but once you get use to it is not bad.

Overall Experience: Everything about this school is mostly great, except tuition, I think that the school should just have a set tuition and not always raise it every year. That is really the only thing that frustrates me as a student here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have been here for over two years now and the school is ok. Students are very friendly and the environment is very calm. Something that I truly dislike, is the fact that tuition keeps on going up every year.

1 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is the best school out there

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.

5 College Junior

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.
