3 College Student

Health & Safety: It is comfortable seeing security officers walking around campus. There has been men seen grabbing girls that were walking to the bus stop or parking structure.

3 College Student

Local Area: It is nice being so close to Milwaukee. There is so much more to do there.

4 College Student

Academics: There are a lot of options for you at the school. A lot of people come as undeclared and are able to find a major or minor they want to pursue.

3 College Student

Academics: My major is nursing. You have to take a lot of liberal art classes before you start taking actual nursing classes. To graduate within your four years you have to go full time. Some of the rooms are re done and look nice, but others are very old and have not been updated for many years.

3 College Student

Administration: They are good with visitors you can whoever you want come. The parking policies are very strict. The security checks all the lots and parking structure to make sure everyone has the right permits or passes. Most teachers are strict with attendance, you usually cannot be late for classes. If you miss three or more classes, the teacher has the option of dropping you from the class.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There is a few good options for food, but most are fast food restaurants. We get discounts and two of the fast food places close to campus. You would have to drive closer to downtown Milwaukee to go to the more nice restaurants.

2 College Student

Guys & Girls: It is an all girls school, so there is not meeting guys at the school. Most girls already have boyfriends and they can come visit. Most girls wear sweat pants and comfy close to class. Some girls do dress up though. I feel like a lot of people at the school are going for nursing, but I have been learning about other majors girls are taking.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I feel like I get less and less financial aid each semester. Some people in the financial aid office are no help.

2 College Student

Campus Food: They are currently re- doing the dining area, but before it was very plain and crowded.

2 College Student

Transportation: I think you need a car for the campus. Otherwise you go to the store you would have to walk to the bus stop and use public transportation.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I mean this school has students from all over the globe and different racial background, ethnicity and religion and that's what I love about it.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school is very strict on a few topic but otherwise understanding when behavior is appropriate.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Absolutely no drugs or alcohol on campus. I only see a couple people smoke but far from the campus because it's a smoke free campus. I don't even remember the first or last time drugs were offered on campus at all.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of restaurants and fast food joint. Maybe a 5 minutes drive from campus. They don't offer students discounts but are conveniently located.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm a little worried about this but I guess they helped you find a place to go and do your internship. they partner with different companies depending on your major and they help find a place for you to to your internship.

2 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't even started my program yet because of all the prerequisites that this school wants you to take. It's a little annoying.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall, I love my school very much.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I hate the fact that I have to apply every year but I guess it can be worst like applying every semester. Otherwise it's ok.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Alverno does the absolute best to keep students updated on safety concerns or crimes committed near or on campus. I receive both texts and emails when situations occur and seeing campus security around campus is always comforting.

Party Scene: Mug events are fun but could get better.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: When you receive help from the Financial Aid Office, the process of receiving financial aid goes by smoother.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Alverno being an all girl college really helps the way girls not only look at each other but themselves. You would think there's too much drama since it is an all girl school, but overall my relationships between friends/faculty/family have only improved and I feel like each person within our community feels good about themselves and tries to share this feeling with everyone.
