4 College Freshman

Greek Life: You can get a lot of networking through frat life and I am considering it for the future when I can find the money.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Marquette is D1 and had Dwayne Wade in the past.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've come across a few racist students who talk down about me because of my color.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love the classes, the professors not as much. They are approachable though.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of recruiting and networking opportunities on campus during the year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love where I live (Cobeen Hall) because there is a great sense of community between all residents.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Great opportunities for all varsity and non-varsity athletes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Marquette and I couldn't be happier with my college choice.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: More probably could be done, but you can always say that as long as sexual assault and safety for that matter is still an issue in the world. MU gives us so many resources to feel safe while on campus if you don't feel comfortable in any situation you find yourself in. We have MUPD, the blue lights, the limos, and the safety walkers that will accompany you wherever you need to go.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Like every school you'll run into professors who don't seem to care about what they are doing and who they are influencing. Marquette shows that there isn't really room for that and looks into situations if people are being treated poorly. I've only had one professor I thought was extremely rude.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You can get a lot of help from people who are part of the career you are seeking. A lot of the resources we have on campus allow us to explore and learn more about our career path.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The options we have are all good ones, we like in a city filled with poverty so we have zero room to complain about any dorm option we get selected into. They are all maintain well and all make for a good college experience.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek-life doesn't over power the campus. I feel like you're either in it or you're not and nobody really cares if you are or aren't. I haven't witnessed anyone trying to force someone into or out of the Greek life. The sororities and fraternities here through a lot of community service events and make sure they spread the news about the social justice issue they raise money for.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: A lot of effort is put into making sure that the Athletics department is maintained at a high, and you can tell by how it performs. The athletes get a lot of recognition, making university sports a topic that you'll talk about almost everyday.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like anyone can fit in here. There are so many things you can do on campus that make your college career a good one.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The farther west you get on campus, the more unsafe it tends to get. Not always fun hearing about the occasional robbery on campus, but I personally have never been involved in any situation such as that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the most part I enjoy the educational part of this school. While each class is a challenge, it is a good type of challenge.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like coming out of here with a degree, people see that Marquette name and know that this is a person who is smart and who should be a part of their team.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Have the little problems that everyone does with roommates and floor but overall happy with my situation

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not care much for greek life on campus and don't plan on getting involved.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Going to the Marquette Men's games at the Bradly Center are the highlight of the sports on Marquette. Personally I'm involved with Club Golf along with intramural basketball and football where I have a great time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Marquette has definitely grown on me. After having been born and raised as a marquette fan due to my mother's attendance, I ended up deciding to go here. My first semester seemed a little iffy to me where I wasn't sure how much I actually liked. After winter break, I came back with a new outlook on things and have really enjoyed my second semester here as I feel like I've grown as a person.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It was a hard transition for me, so first semester was not a good one for me.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Obviously being in a city like Milwaukee security is always an issue. Luckily, Marquette has a great police department on campus that responds to calls extremely quickly and the police department sends out notices when a crime was committed on or around campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some teachers are naturally boring, but for the most part teachers are very passionate about what they do and are excited and willing to help you. Sizes for most classes are around 30, a good number, although lectures can run up to 200 in certain cases. But even then, most lectures that large include a discussion section component in which the subsection of the class is once again around 30. Small enough for personal attention but large enough to not participate if you don't wish to.

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.
