Majors: The process of getting into my Nursing major was relatively easy. I didn't have to do a special application process when applying to the school and there wasn't a waiting list either.

Health & Safety: Feeling Safe on Campus – The moment I steped on Alverno's grounds I felt the warmth, energy and friendliness of a college community. I am very familiar with the neighborhood around Alverno, which makes me feel more confortable and relaxed. As far as campus crime or neighborhood crime I don't know the rates but as long as I've lived a couple blocks down the road I've never felt unsafe!

Local Area: its not really a great atmosphere. its a long walk to get to any type of store but a short drive. not everyone has cars and no bus takes us out there where we need to go to like walmart, movie stores, etc. its far from downtown but the good thing about that is we could take one bus out there.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The building at the college are in great shape and there are plenty things to do; also there are many places to study quietly, talk with friends, or study.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at Alverno college isn't great but its livable. A lot of things are broken and/or don't get fixed properly. I would suggest better repair company or something so that we are living comfortably at the dorms. The good about the dorms is that everyone interacts with each other and if we need anythings CA's are around (2 on every floor and on duty) to help us in anyway.

Transportation: CAMPUS IS BEAUTIFUL. TEACHERS/ADVISERS AND COUNCILORS ARE VERY HELPFUL. JUST VERY EXPENSIVE, HARD GRADING SCALE TO GET USED TO.

4 College Senior

Majors: Alverno has a wide variety of majors, and they also offer weekend college classes

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: The MBA does not work in silos as do most other programs. We are given a gross amount of projects to work on that demonstrate that we have retained the information that is taught. The projects allow us to personalize our learning and really requires us to be fully enveloped in the program.

5 College Senior

Academics: I am a graduate student working on my MBA. Each and every class I absorb a gross amount of information that can immediately be applied in my workplace. I am so fortunate to take part in such an amazing collective.

5 College Senior

Academics: The education is amazing! I actually retain the information learned and can immediately apply it in my workplace.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Alverno does an amazing job at educating students regarding health, ensures the safety and is transparent regarding possible threats.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: All of the computers and computer spaces are always efficient and allow you to get your work done whenever you need to. We do have 500 pages of free printing, which is a perk. I love coming from class and then going straight to work on my homework.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I do not think there has ever been a time where I've seen Alverno's campus neat and clean. Everything is always in place, grass is always cut, landscape makes the campus look beautiful, and the Christmas tree in the rotunda is absolutely speechless.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: We have a variety of weather, but I think that is what makes it great. Watching the seasons change and seeing the leaves change colors to the snow falling on the ground. All of these things make the campus unique.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Small, and a little pricey, but very convenient and worth living especially if you want that experience of what it is like to live on your own.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Alverno College is a great school that keeps you involved and motivated. The environment is peaceful and keeps you uplifted. There is no way you can fail. There are so many opportunities and the professors are always there to help. We have so many resources, including the computer lab, communication lab, and the library. You pay for what you get and this school is awesome!

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Although I do not stay on campus I know that there always student activities going on at Alverno! I usually come to school for class and then usually head out but I always see so many ads of upcoming events all over campus! The vibe at Alverno is extremely calming and you always feel like you can get work done!

5 College Junior

Majors: I have had an internship, not yet with Alverno College but my experience was great! I worked on the fields and with the environment one on one. I loved viewing the world through a biology perspective and I was also able to communicate with people on a daily basis on good and bad circumstances but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world.

5 College Junior

Local Area: I personally love the vibe Alverno has to offer! The atmosphere is extremely comfortable that it almost feels retro! Being that it is an all girl college, everyone feels super comfortable with one another and almost feels as thought every lady attending is there for a reason, to learn. Everyone seems to be on the same page there unlike other colleges.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I think sports at Alverno are pretty good. It's not a huge deal at our campus although there is high fan support, student involvement, and school spirit but it's not a huge focus. I'm pretty sure answers might vary coming from a student athlete than from a student not involved in sports.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's pretty rare having bad weather around campus and with the winters it is even more rare to have classes cancel. I like the weather around campus, it's comfortable but when it does snow it's kind of a pain driving to school in really bad weather. But the weather is usually always comfortable enough to go outside and get some work done or have lunch around campus.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The women at Alverno College are nice and always there to help if needed.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Very diverse. I get the opportunity to learn about all different cultures from school events.
