4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety and security are very big on my campus, you are able to see the on campus security regularly. If you need to reach them to ask a question they are more then willing to have you in their office to answer any questions. Security's phone number is found through out the buildings. We also have the blue light safety system on campus which is great to have in situations where students feel uncomfortable or unsafe going to their car or to a building, security is more than willing to escort you to where you are needing to go on campus. The fact that only student who live on campus can assess the buildings is also helpful and creates a sense of security for all the individuals living there. I have always felt safe on campus and never had any problems that the security team didnt have a plan for or an idea on how to resolve.

Majors: Being a business major I will be having two internships before graduation, I am somewhat concerned that I wont be able to find internships that will relate more to what I would like to be doing as my career but once I have my meeting with the internship office hopefully we will be able to find places that will be more geared towards what I would like to pursue with my education.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We do have sports and the facilities are open to all students at one time or another. We also have some clubs like Latin dance and such that allow the non competitive sports people participate and just have fun as well as being active. When there is a home game for basket ball or softball there is a turn out of student fans who attend to cheer on their fellow classmates.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: My school is by no means a party school in the normal terms. A party at my school is board games, music, junk food, and movies where we all gather in a common space and just have fun. We dont have any drinking parties that I know of, its a pretty mellow quiet school where fun is defined by number of activities there are not by the number of drinks per person.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The area that our school is located in a good safe area, from what I understand the school will have postings of off campus living when they have someone approach with the information. I have not heard of someone having an issue with off campus housing that they found through the school or through a fellow student.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not had a problem with living on my campus. I have a room that is a very good size that I share with my friend and every year we have the choice to stay in that room for the following year and who we would like to have as our roommate. I love that most of the wings in my dorm building have an open door policy which allows for a more friendly and active social building but we are also all very respectful of one another's studying times. If there is ever a maintenance problem in your room the maintenance men always show up in a reasonable time of you reporting the problem and are able to have it fixed in no time, they also will explain the issue that you had and how to avoid it in the future. On campus parking is fantastic and the security team is great about keeping the students informed of what is going on and keeping the students safe is top notch.

Scholarships: I found that the financial aid office was very good about sitting down with the student and walking us through the process of what we were able to receive and how it was being applied to us. They have also been great at helping students with any questions or concerns. Just calling and asking a question is great or I prefer to set up an appointment and sit down with them so if I have any additional questions that come up I am able to ask and they can show me what id going on with the financial aid that is being applied to my education.

Off-Campus Dining: There is really anything. It is about a 30 min walk, most students do not have cars. Or you can have delivery but not many places do that.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is the best to live on campus. You do not have to get up early to go to school. They have fun activities to do some night. It is very welcoming.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The nurses office is always open and the campus is by a hospital. It is an all girl school so sexual assault does not happen as much but it could. And the teachers and the cas are always there to help.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: This collage treats everyone the same. You are not better or worse because of something.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The collage is in a big city but many people do not have cars and there is no transportation.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not play/watch sports but I know a lot of the school does.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It's an all girl school and because of that there is no drama. It is great! Every once in a whole we see a guy and don't know what to do.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have yet to start my classes for my major but the class is able to work around you and if you need help you can get help from many places.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are small so the professor knows you by name. The professor is willing, if you need more time, to work with you and get you to where you need to be.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I do not eat meat or junk food. Because of this the options are very small. The fruit and salad bar are amazing though!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: My favorite thing about being on campus, is all of the areas the school has set for the students to study or work on homework.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient, you ware within walking distance from everything the school has to offer, but it was very expensive.

Scholarships: Although many receive scholarships, this school is still VERY expensive. I have had to take out loans that I will probably be paying back for years.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The campus is near to downtown Milwaukee, with just a short drive you have many different things to do. There are museums, many bars if you are of age, a variety of restaurants, dance clubs, and you are near to UWM.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life at our school.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics go pretty unnoticed unless you are an athlete or a close friend of one, however the program is great.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The professors are great and always willing to work with the students. Its a very beneficial environment.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Although the campus is strict, it is for our own safety and I have no complaints.
