2 College Sophomore

Administration: The university has undergone a few administrative changes. Such as new deans for some of the colleges. Also, we have a new university president, who has finished his first year at Marquette. There have been a few incidences with the administration that I have had, and have not gone well. They are very strict and tend to not help students, such as violating code, which is met with harsh criticism even if done on accident.

Scholarships: Marquette provides a variety of resources for students to obtain aid. However, it is the student's responsibility to take the initiative and utilize them.

Campus Food: Overall, I thought it was nice having a meal plan because I didn't have to worry about preparing it. However, the unlimited meal plan is very expensive, and the university makes it mandatory for students to have it for the first two years. Also, the food got bland and old after a year of having it. Some dining halls have a little more variety than others. However, the food was clean and sanitary in my opinion.

Campus Housing: Dorm life provides a good social experience for first year students. However, it is very expensive and requires students to live on-campus for at least 2 years.

Off-Campus Housing: I much prefer on-campus housing to off-campus because they are unforgiving to students who study abroad.

Party Scene: It isn't really my scene, and I believe it is a negative impact on student life here on campus. Drinking is rampant and some people just go too far.

Off-Campus Dining: Milwaukee is an awesome city to be a college student. If you have a bus pass you can get anywhere, and there are so many different options to go out and explore new cuisine just off-campus.

Administration: Everything in place at Marquette is for our safety. There are desk receptionists in the halls when we come into the buildings so we can keep track of who is coming in. We are in the not-so-nice part of the city and safety is the number one concern of DPS.

Scholarships: There are great scholarships offered by the school considering it is a private institution. I just wish there were smaller ones for upperclassmen.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It really depends on where you go. Mashuda is fine, but not worth the walk. Cobeen and Straz are my favorites, but Straz especially has poor hours (nothing on weekends). It makes choices limited if you are a busy student.

Campus Housing: I currently work with Residence Life and seeing all of the effort put into making students happy in their halls makes me so aware of how much Marquette Residence Life cares for the students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's definitely cheaper than the dorms and there are more options (cost, size, quality,etc.).

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is no student discount as I remember, but there is a plenty of choices in terms of where and what to eat.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't usually go to party, but I think it's a great place to know more people as knowing them better.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The regulations and the policies are working even though there were few incidents that slipped away.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Although it seems that there are a lot of scholarship opportunities, there aren't many for international students, especially for Biomedical Engineering Major. I thought Biomedical Engineering would be very useful for the society nowadays and in the future.

Campus Food: Choice vs. Quality vs. Price

Good number of choice and a range of food quality, but the price is quite expensive. Unlimited swipes is unnecessary if the price could be cheaper.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a great pleasure to get to know people and there's a dining hall in my dorm too; however, the room is pretty small.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Straz is the only good and healthy option and it is closed on weekends and has terrible hours

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There is so much to do in Milwaukee from shopping to dining, there is something for everyone to enjoy. You have to make sure you know where you are going though…like any city there are areas of the city you do not want to find yourself in.

Overall Experience: I love my school and I would not trade it for any other. While there are some downsides to this campus the good things far outweigh the bad. I have excellent friends, professors, roommates, and mentors. I cannot wait to see what these next few years bring.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many career opportunities on campus as a student as well as off campus internships in the Milwaukee area. As far as I know Marquette Alumni are close knit with the campus still and will definitely offer advice when asked.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is free to be themselves on this campus. There are all sorts of personalities and you just have to find the right group.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall I feel very safe here and security does a good job with preventing a student's safety from being compromised.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I was not interested in Greek life, but I have a few friends who are involved and it is cool that they sill want to do stuff other than their sorority events. Greek life is not huge here and it is acceptable if you are not involved which I really like about this campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is almost unanimous—Marquette students could not be more satisfied with their experience here. Almost every student who looks back at their experience says they would make the same decision all over again if they could. Even if a student experienced uneasiness or uncertainty at the start, they almost never regret their decision in the end. Yes, money may be an issue, the campus is not all that diverse, and studying hard is a must, but hey, no school is perfect. Marquette can offer more than you may expect, like a welcoming atmosphere, distinguished faculty, and a noteworthy academic reputation.

During the college selection process, Marquette is often a top pick among prospective college students due to a number of factors. Sure, students are quick to recognize the drawbacks, but most acknowledge the beneficial qualities Marquette can provide, such as the strong academic foundation, top-quality professors, and an endless amount of entertainment opportunities in a major city location. Most of all, a feeling of small-town community togetherness makes Marquette feel unique to the students here. With all things considered, if you can swing the cost of a Marquette education, then the price is right—so come on down. Of course, like any experience in life, college is what you make it. So get involved, make new friends, and try new experiences, and it will be the time of your life.
