Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants around Alverno College are limited but are also nice and cheap. Most of the places around Alverno are opened 24 hours, this is good because you are able to go off of campus and work on homework. The atmosphere's in the restaurants are very warm and welcoming. My favorite place to go is Denny's because it is always quiet and open. I am able to accomplish a lot of my homework when I am there. Noodles & Company is a great place to go with your friends when you are feeling pretty lonely or just want to get away for a few hours. Leon's Custard is an amazing ice parlor that is old school. It is a drive in and has a very loving touch. The ice cream there is incredible.

Campus Quality: My school's academic programs are different than any other college. First the school does not have a grading system. You are graded by a simple S or U. An S stands for success, while an U stands for Unsuccessful. This makes the atmosphere feel a lot better than what they I felt like in High School. The pressure is a lot less and you are able to work with other students. The way Alverno bases your education on is by simply having 8 values in which they also interact with the community. Alverno wants women to become well-known to all different aspects, not just sitting and being forced information. Overall, Alverno is an awesome academic school because they may grade harshly, but it is for our own benefits.

Campus Quality: Alverno College has a great campus atmosphere due to the way all of the students interact with each other. When passing people in the hallway they all say hello and it makes you feel welcome, no matter what happens. The students are always welcoming and so are the teachers, they want to help you just as mush as other students do. Alverno makes the environment seem friendly and very welcoming.

Campus Food: The meals can be kind of expensive, but if you out money on your id, you get a 10% discount on purchases

Health & Safety: I have never had any problems on campus and when you hear of someone who has, you normally hear that things are working on being resolved or they have been

Overall Experience: Alverno is more than just a school. They work in an ability based education system, to help you with the skills you will need out in the workforce, such as communication, analysis, problem solving, valuing, social interaction, developing a global perspective, effective citizenship, and aesthetic engagement.

Overall Experience: I love Alverno everyone is always willing to help you and all the girls are very friendly!

Transportation: Your Own Car – Having your own car on campus is great because they offer free parking.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There Is Endless Resources on Campus – My major is Business and Management. There are organizations on campus such as Women in Business that focuses on my major and I am given the opportunity to have hands- on experience on and off campus. There is even study abroad programs and internships I have access with to participate.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors Ensures No One Is Left Behind in the Course – Alverno has very small class sizes so it is a benefit that you can grow a relation with professors. A few professors even gave me their home phone number. So whenever I have a question, it is no problem getting a hold of them and getting it answered. There is also resources thoughout the campus that offers tutoring to those in need of it. Students can borrow laptops for several days and also given 400 printing pages for each semester.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food Is Well Done! The food is quite repetitive but fortunately there are set hours during the day when meals change from tacos to turkeys.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: People from Everyone on Earth – There is a wide variety of races throughout Alverno. The great thing is that everyone is open to new things and do not migrate themselves into religion or race. I have an international roomate from South Korea and we both have similar majors. So usually, my roomate peers and also my peers are having study sessions and learning new languages.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Safe and Serious – Alverno takes the safety and health of students very seriously. To that end, Alverno is a smoke, substance and alcohol free campus with access to wellness programs, health center and counseling.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: More Than Memorization – Alverno pushes its 8 abilities allowing the student to really guide their education and results. Being able to leave Alverno with the ability to demonstrate all that you have learned is a much richer experience than graduating with untested knowledge. I am building a portfolio that exhibits work I have completed and areas I have proven capable.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Accessible and Efficient – Alverno recently underwent a technology firm switch. I haven't noticed any major issue since the switch. The upgrade to Moodle has made interaction between instructors and other students much easier.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Stay Anywhere – Milwaukee has tons of housing from less expensive studios on the east side to near campus housing at a higher end. The freeway system make campus pretty close regardless of your location.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Technology at the Tips of Your Fingers – Alverno has an excellent technology center with student assistance. Labs, Libraries, the Mug and the Commons (cafe)were created with the student in mind feeding both the brain and body. Alverno also offers various sports activities, intramurals and academic endeavors.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Central Location – Good location in close proximity to all store needed for student survival. Public transportation does its job, but traffic from Miller Stadium can impede travel. Also travel is not as modern as other metropolitan cities (ie. Chicago, DC) no rail or any kind

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Don't Always Get the Correct Answer – Alverno is pretty good about telling you everything you need to know about financial aid, but sometimes it feels like they could have told you more - mostly because student workers need to be educated more.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Buses are available to get to and from the college. Personally, I drive to and from school each day and am very pleased to always having a parking spot even if it is further away at times. Alverno has a ton of options for parking and it makes getting to class on time very easy.
