4 College Senior

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Alverno college is very well known for their small classroom sizes and having great relationships with all your professors. It's one of the most common answers from most students as to why they choose and like Alverno college so much.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Alverno college is one of the best colleges in all of Wisconsin. It has been the top 3rd college the last few years. It has great recognition for all students/alumnis. Many alumnis recieve employment opportunity right after graduation. Alverno college is very looked upon and is a great success rate when applying for your career.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I would say the atmosphere of alverno is very welcoming and friendly. Everyone you come in contact with is very nice and is so friendly. Alverno is a very clean and beautiful place with lots of color and beautifully designed. I personally don't live in the dorms but I stayed overnight for orientation and it wasn't so bad. It was great quality.

1 College Student

Greek Life: I don't believe our campus has greek life. Our school acts as a whole and everyone gets along with each other. No one is different and our school isn't very split up or divided, which is what I like about Alverno. No one is better than anyone we are all the same and equal.

5 College Student

Athletics: Alverno is really involved with everything that happens on campus. For sports, many students support and represent all the sports around school and host events for alot of the sports. They make sports important to the school just as a club or organization. The school has equality that really shows in relation to topics such as sports. No one is treated more higher or lower, we are all equal and we get the same amount of support.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: What I enjoy most about Alverno is how different it is to most other colleges/universities. More specifically, I enjoy the smaller classroom sizes because it's easier to work well in smaller groups and I have more one on one time with your teachers and students. I also enjoy how personal you can be with all your teachers- you can call them by their first name, they will give you their cell phone number, and they are always willing to help you at any time of day(literally). The grading system really teaches the students of how your learning really applies to real life, for instance, if something is wrong they make you do it over until you understand the concept. Which is how your career will be, they won't give you ABCD for your evaluations they will specifically tell you what you do and don't need to work on just like how it is at Alverno.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Alverno College is an excellent school. They offer new students who are attending their school for the first time scholarships to go towards their tuition. Alverno really cares about their students. Even the Admissions Counselors take the time out and give each student their undivided attention. They also will help you step by step with the registration if you do not understand some things when enrolling. The Admissions Counselors are easy to get a hold of and it is not difficult getting in touch with your Admissions Counselor. They even provide you with their cell phone number and text you to check in with you to see how things are going. Financial Aid there is awesome as well. The students there are great too. They welcome everyone there. I have not met a crabby student there yet. The campus is big and has all different types of classes and majors.

My favorite experience is the registering and enrolling process. I liked having to pick my classes. This was my favorite part of my college experience because it made my brain think and it showed what areas I am actually interested in and what I really am good at. This step you do to prepare for college really gets your brain thinking in what you want in a career and where you really see yourself at in five or ten years.

Even though college can get expensive, it is worth the money. Like I mentioned before, Alverno offeres new students scholarships and there are so many scholarships out there you can apply for. I will never regret going to college. It is worth it in the end. If you want to be successful, you have to get the education and skills. Apply for colleges and get started. It is never too late to go back to school and better yourself. I really promise you, if you get in school, you will not regret it and it will be the best decision you ever made.

Overall Experience: Alverno College is a great school. The classes are small so you get time with the instructor, in most cases. The grading system forces you to go beyond just meeting the minimum. The only upset is the price. We have to pay for things that we may not even utilize while attending and it continues to cost more and more each semester.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My college experience has been one of the best so far. I love how the staff member, teachers and classmates are here at Alverno College. They truly commit to their jobs and they all go out of their way to help students in whatever it is that they need to do to succeed in their courses. The teachers here care a lot about the students and they try everything they can to help us. The community like experience is awesome! There are always fun events every week and weekend for us. I love how they get singers, comedians, etc to perform here in school. I love how it's an all-girls school, how strong women could be. Their grading scale is different. We do not get letter grades instead we get either an "S" (for successful) or a "U" (for unsuccessful) and i feel like that grading scale is very helpful not only because they don't let a letter grade define who we are as a person or how smart a person could be. With that grading scale they tell us where we need improvement and how we can improve in that are. They keep giving us helpful feedback until we get it right. I wouldn't think twice about choosing Alverno if I had to do it all over again for the simple fact that this college is the one the best fit me and my learning style and their grading scale.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Half way through my first semester of college was definitely a different turn for me. However, I do not regret for one bit my choice of Alverno College. I feel it is the perfect place for me. I have found great friends. I don't regret my major either, Music Therapy. The music experiences is definitely different from my high school's but I am still adjusting to it. I love the environment at Alverno and the way it makes me feel so at home throughout campus. I am making the most of it all and I'm ready for the 3.75 more years to come!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love college so far.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I guess my experience has been okay. The people are extremely helpful and the staff are friendly. Although, it is super expensive, I might have to consider transferring. The food in the cafeteria is also expensive...

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's really expensive, I'm afraid I will never pay it off.
