Health & Safety: They have security guards checking the parking lots and the campus/residence hall when school is and not in section. They also have an emergency button in the parking lots when somethings g bad happens.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The service on campus is great. They have resources such as tutors and computers to help you. When you need someone to read over you essay, you can go to the media center to get help. It's great.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: For example a lot at my school mainly play basketball. There is not too much people that attends the games because they probably are to busy studying. Overall when I stayed after to study, the team had good performance and they all worked together.

5 College Freshman

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Very cleanly and pleasant indoor and outdoor environment.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: They tell you what's going on with their community. They are very nice and pleasant people who are willing to teach you everything they know about the community and their culture.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The admissions answer every questions that you have to ensure a smooth application process. They keep in touch with you and they keep you updated about the school.

5 College Senior

Academics: Alverno has amazing academics. The Nursing Program alone is ranked one of the best in the nation. The professors really prepare you for real world problems in your field. Not only do you study the informational material but you also study how to actually relate it to real life. I always feel well prepared for assessments and when I might need to further elaborate on something or edit, the professors always give you a chance.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Alverno is very secure. There have been minor vehicle thefts from outsiders but the campus since has upped rotational security.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I recently had an off-campus internship interview and when the interviewers found out I went to Alverno, they were pleasantly surprised and the conversation took a turn toward the school. I think that alone speaks for itself. People know Alverno, and they know that Alverno students or Alumnus are prepared to take on anything they are presented with.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really love Alverno. Sometimes I do wish there were more elective classes but because the school is so small it's difficult to get students to sign up and have a full class so it's understandable... But, the classes are small so you really feel like you are a part of your own experience-not like Professor is talking at you. We even call our professors by their first names. It's a very personable school where almost all of the professors are really passionate about what they teach and they really know their stuff.

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.

4 College Senior

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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

3 College Freshman

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

5 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For those planning to stay in the Milwaukee area, having a degree from Alverno basically means you can write your own ticket. The college and its alumnae are very well respected in the community.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors have been very helpful. They take the time to answer questions and will work with you to be sure you understand the parameters of an assignment.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of personal attention and support - from teachers, students and advisers. Someone always answers the phone (no long hold times, yay!) and my questions always get answered. All in all, I love it.
