4 College Sophomore

Majors: The process to enroll at Alverno isn't too task intensive. Prep for a full day of demonstrating ability in reading, speaking, listening and qualitative literacy (math).

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Wish I Had Gone Here First – Instead of attending a different university when graduating from high school, I wish I had started here! The CLD program is terrific and encourages civic and community participation from all students. Thankfully the world of Non-Profits and service related careers seems to be holding steady, even with the recession and federal programming cuts.

There are always group of girls going out and having fun.

The securities are in the hall ways, around the buildings and in the parking structures. Due to their high and frequent presences I always feel safe especally when I am on campus late at nights. I can recalled one night when my car battery died I was able to call the security office and I got help within minutes and my car back running.

Local Area: Amazing Surrounding – The school itself on my visit was amazing. The location was very easy to get around. There is a lot of shopping centers near Alverno and also a movie theatre, which is great. The culture of the school is very well rounded, there's people from all different ages and backgrounds that attend Alverno and I think that's very cool. Too see women I'm your class that's mothes and possible grandmothers is also great, it really just reminds you that you're never to old to achieve your dreams!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Great Variety – There are many places of variety to eat off campus. They have various asian cusine, fast food, sit down, and late night dining options. Some of my favorite places are the ones that are open late because if i have to pull an all nighter i know they will be there to satisfy the hunger of others.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Things Are Great, but I Could Change Somethings – I love Alverno, but some of the teachers are not willing to work with your situation that you have at hand, and it causes issues with trying to pass classes.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Good Amount but Could Use a Little More Help – I recieve a fair amount of aid, but i could use more since my mother is disabled and i can not work full time during the school year, it would help if things were a little less expensive i would not have such problems finding money.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: World Wide – Alverno is a very diverse place, they actually strive in a way to have a lot of diversity in the school. they link up with other countries, and have a lot of exchange students come visit Alverno, and vise-versa. this school is very diverse and as soon as you step in a classroom you see that right away.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: Alverno has a lot of places were the students can park. The spaces are quite big so there is always a spot open for anyone who wants to park. I think that the only times were parking issues arise is in the beginning of the semester and when there are events happening on campus, other than that its great.
