Overall Experience: I love Marquette University for its Jesuit values in both community service and education. The broad array of classes and engaging professors make nearly every class enjoyable and interesting. I love the proximity and openness with the city of Milwaukee and the spirit of school pride that students and faculty seem to have. Not to mention we have an amazing library set up and a moderate sized campus so there are no long walks (or runs!) between classes.

Overall Experience: Marquette is a medium-sized school in a fairly small area. This makes great opportunities to meet many people and get accustomed to the campus fairly quickly. I look forward going back to Marquette at the end of each semester.

Greek Life: Joining Greek Life has been one of the best experiences I have had at Marquette. It is a very unique and special experience different from other schools. It is truly my home away from home.

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the housing is on campus. Being in the middle of Milwaukee, it is best this way. No one ventures too far off campus and the off-campus apartments are so close to campus they could be considered on campus.

4 College Student

Party Scene: On the weekends, if you know people you will find something. Campus is pretty chill. The party scene is very social and there is no pressure to drink.

Off-Campus Dining: Marquette is in the hub of Milwaukee so within a short walk or bus ride, everything you can imagine is at your fingertips.

Administration: Marquette runs a strict campus, but this is primarily due to it's location and it's religious beliefs. Overall, it just builds a better student and you feel safe.

Campus Food: Marquette has many different options. The cafeteria food is only half of what they have to offer. Having a gluten allergy they have options at every place that I can eat. After a while, the food inevitably gets repetitive. My favorite place was the AMU.

3 College Student

Scholarships: While almost everyone gets financial aid, it isn't the best for everyone. Without my parents, I'm not sure how I'd be paying for school.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Living on campus is amazing! The dorms are nice and they offer a very strong community and social atmosphere. Dorms are close to campus and nothing was further than a 10 minute walk away from my dorm.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I love, love living only one block off of campus. I walk to class in about 5 minutes and many of my friends live around me. I do miss the community feel that a dorm gives you. The selection of housing is pretty big. Many boys live in houses and more girls live in apartments it seems like. I picked my location on 15th and Kilbourn because it is safe, my apartment is clean, and close to campus.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Usually I will go a friend's party rather than someone I do not know. I have fun as long as I am with my friends and other positive people! I love seeing people for class and making new friends. I feel that this has helped me with networking in the "real" world. I can openly start a conversation with anyone and I am genuinely interested in them. Parties are positive if you are with good company.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I personally go to Jimmy John's any chance I get, I love the "Big John" even though I know it is not good for me. I do not go to McDonald's or Taco Bell at all just because I think they are really unhealthy.

3 College Senior

Administration: I actually prefer strictness in many ways. I feel that the campus police and dorm rules help keep kids safe and aware of their surroundings. Milwaukee is not that safe and the police really try to keep kids out of danger and way from some of the harmful locals. The law definitely gets in the way of some peoples' social lives, but I have only noticed that troublemakers are the ones that the police go after. I have seen the DPS help many kids get home when they are too drunk, which is indeed keeping them out of danger.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: It is okay if you know what is good for you and what your body needs. However, it is really easy to make bad choices and put cheese on absolutely everything simply because no one is there to tell you no. The dining halls are themed in a way so there are different types of food on campus such as stir fry, pizza, diner type food, and salad bars.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I know that I need more financial aid that what I am receiving. The financial aid department was not very helpful and I do not really understand how they pick who they give scholarships to.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It is a community in many ways. I have met many friends because of campus dorms and dining halls. I would say that being with people who are friendly and outgoing trumps the small rooms and no air condition!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'd rather live off campus than in the dorms for the freedom.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really go to parties on campus, I work a lot.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The only real policy I have a problem with is the strictness around visitation in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living in Mashuda. It's very spacious, we have a private bathroom and air conditioning. The only probably is that the diner closes early and doesn't have very many vegetarian options and it's pretty far from the rest of the campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The meal plan is way too expensive and the food we get for it isn't very good.

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.
