3 College Senior

Greek Life: Alverno doesn't really have Greek Life. The college is not average in that sense, but there are a wealth of clubs and groups for students to join that are just as great, if not better. All of the groups are very welcoming and to go to meetings you don't even have to be a part of the group--you can just go check it out if you like.

Athletics: The athletics department is actually really underrated. The teams are really sisterhoods and the gym is small but nice as is the workout area. It could be bigger with more equipment but for Alverno's small size it definitely serves its purpose.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classrooms and fairly intimate. You know your professor and most importantly they know you and care about your success in the class and in general. I remember freaking out about some classes I needed to get into which were already full and emailing my professors at 10pm about what I should do and easily enough, they helped me follow necessary steps to get into their already full classes. I love Alverno and couldn't picture myself anywhere else. I'm proud to carry the name.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Alverno College is great. I live on the second floor of Austin Hall and we are the volunteer wing. So far this year we lead a bake sale where all of our proceeds were donated to Saint Jude's Children's Hospital, and we also volunteered at a hospital in Milwaukee where we organised and folded clothes for children and families in need.

Greek Life: Alverno College doesn't really associate with the Greek life. We have one sorority but I believe it is with UW Milwaukee.

Athletics: I am not an Athlete, so as far as I know athletics aren't very popular.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Alverno College has been great. We do not have grades but instead have the eight core abilities. These abilities: communication, analysis, problem solving, valuing, social interaction, developing a global perspective, effective citizenship, and aesthetic engagement, are what is used to prepare students for the real world. At Alverno I feel like I am more than just a number. Instructors are caring and they want to help you succeed. This college was a great fit for me because of the individualized learning. Because of the caring staff at Alverno I would definitely choose Alverno College again.

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.
