Student Discounts – Around the Alverno campus there are many dining options. At these dining spots students who attend Alverno receive a 10% discount for all purchases. This very convenient for students who do not live on campus.

There are many psychology majors at Alverno. The upperclassmen who major in psychology help to lead and guide me in the areas of class choices and credits. My major is greatly supported by my advisor as well. My advisor has my necessary classes mapped out and helps me to make the right class choices.

Transfer Students – There are many transfer students on campus at Alverno College. These students stay in the dorms and interact well with the other students. On the transfer students arrival day they are welcomed and their names are on display on a bulletin board. We welcome the transfer students and treat them like we would anyone else.

Fan Support – At Alverno College the fan support of our athletics is very vibrant. Not only do the students support the athletics but so does the faculty and staff. At many of the games and athletic events students and staff cheer on the athletes. I enjoy the athletics events because of the fan support.

Dorms and Social Atmosphere – The dorms at Alverno College are very convenient. They are located at a very reasonable distance from the main buildings. I enjoy living on campus because of these conveniences and because of the social atmosphere. I have met many people from studying in the lobbies of the dorms and also in the coffeehouse. The social atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming for everyone.

At Alverno College we do not utilize a grading scale or system. We do not receive grades but simply pass or fail. After each paper we write and after each assessment we have to self evaluate our work. During the self assessments our strengths and weaknesses displayed in our work is to be clearly identified and stated why it is a strength or weakness. I personally like the self assessment process with no grading scale because it allows me to know what areas improvements are needed.

Living in Wisconsin, the weather is awful during the winter. It is hard to get anywhere in this city when it has been snowing the way that it does here most years. Alverno is very good with plowing the parking lots, the area streets, and the sidewalks so snow has never been much of a problem when it comes so getting to class easily and on time.

I love my school because there are so many different kinds of people. We have a lot of people studying at my school who come from other areas in the world and these do not include those who are studying abroad at Alverno. Everyone feels welcome because no one stands out as being different from everyone else; this is because everyone is different from their peers. I love it.

It's Better to Have Your Own – Even though there are computer labs available for the students they do seem to get very crowded aroung finals,midterms, and the lunch hour. However if you do have your own personal computer there are many places to pick up wifi on campus.

It's Ok – I have made it my personal business to complete my FAFSA before the deadline so that I may qualify for all that is available to me. A lot od documents are online so I suggest keeping up with deadlines and talking with a financial aid advisor if you ever have questions

None Seen – Alverno is a small private college with a lot of non-traditional students. If drinking or smoking occurs it is somewhere far away from campus

the atmosphere around the school is pretty much residential with a strip mall as well as resturants down the street

The computer labs are always packed from 11:30 till about 1:10, so good luck trying to find one. You only get 400 pages to print each semester. It may sound like a lot, but it is not and they go by fast.

Health & Safety:
The security is very strict there is always a police officer around campus. Since it is an all girls school everyone is really respectful of each others things. There are RARELY any stealing and never fights that go on on the campus. Overall I always feel very safe on campus.

At the campus their is a wide range of different ethics groups, as well as those with different political and financial backgrounds. They try to make it accessible for all students to attend this school.

Guys & Girls:
Alverno is an all girl school so there are only girls. Student's looks varies. Some dress bummy all the time, but some come dressed casually/formally. Most people are very friendly and I've heard a lot of people becoming great friends from meeting one another at Alverno.

Computer labs are great, but computers are slow. And sometimes computers aren't always available, too many students and not enough computers. Wireless access is great though.
College Senior 2011-12-14T22:45:04Z
Don't Live in the Dorms – But my classmates who do don't complain! There are coffee shops hosting regular events in the two dorm buildings. Students have a choice of a single or double in rooms.

Excellent Technology Access!! Alverno offers state of the art technology from the Technology and Learning Center, a relatively new computer lab with plenty both Mac and PC computers, to the Media Hub, where students have the finest editing equipment for video and audio presentations. Wireless access is present at several areas on campus as well. Bonus? Every student is allotted 400 pages of free printing per semester.

Parking at Alverno is good. There is always room in the parking structure so that is convenient.
