There are so many great restaurants within 15 minutes of Alverno. Downtown milwaukee, eastside, bayview, all of them offer great choices whether you are looking for Mexcian, Sushi, or Wings.

The school is small but charming, going to an all girls school is great because everyone has different personalities and lives but you can all relate on one thing, woman issues. The parking garage is absolutely fantastic for when a winter storm hits and if there's no parking there, plenty on the streets or in parking lots. Only about 10 minutes from downtown Milwaukee which has plenty to offer!

This is an all girls school so the only men you'll find are faculty and graduate students. However, theres a huge amount of diversity at the school and multiple activities and awesome student groups.

The food on campus is decent and there is a good variety to choose from. The mushroom soup is especially delicious. There are tons of dining options in the local area so you won't run out of new places to try.

I have never had any problems using a computer or have never had to wait for a computer to be available.

The financial aid office is very helpful! I still have to pay a small amount out of pocket, but the burden is minimal.

I major in Community Leadership and Development. I love it!! It is very challenging and has broadened my mind beyond what I was prepared for. My professors have high expectations, but they all know me as an individual and are invested in my progress. I can't wait til I graduate and can apply the knowledge I have learned.

All Girls Catholic School – Not many guys will be found on campus unless they are instructors or Masters program students. Otherwise, the girls seem to get along really well. Perhaps that is because we host students and faculty from all over the world, or that we are a college with an emphasis on community, service, and globalism... Alverno students work together with little to no drama.

Milwaukee is a small-ish town known for it's local music scene. There is alot going on as far as artistic events. Student discounts are common among businesses. The Alverno neighborhood is very safe and crime-free for the most part.

The strictness at our school is explained for right from the beginning of entering the campus and is enforced but not to the extent that it is shoved down one's throat. It is left upon the students to follow through with expectations of the policies.

I love the variety and choice's for healthy eating but the prices for those meals are outrageous in my opinion. I would eat off campus because I could receive the same meals with more additions for the same price. It was always disappointing because Alverno carries such a comfortable environment that I wouldn't want to leave and would much rather spend my money on campus but the prices are too high for students.

Health & Safety:
I have always felt very safe on campus and as an example, I remember leaving my bag in the bathroom before a class so when the class was over and went to check for my bag it was still there. This showed me how trustworthy other students can be around campus. There has not been any incidents dealing with personal safety or crime to alert me.

There are many options for off-campus dining and student discounts are of great use when grabbing lunch away from college. The only discomfort is the inconvenience of traveling when only given an hour lunch and driving takes most of it. But I always tried to eat outside of school for lunch because I felt the prices of food inside Alverno were unreasonable and would rather deal with the inconvenience.

There are fast foods, but also sit down restaurants which gives students a variety to choose from. There are a variety of restaurants and they have Wal Mart nearby as well, which gives students another option. The drive ranges from 5-10min to these restaurants.

There are only 2 sororities at Alverno College. Being part of one, I have noticed that it is not such a big deal at Alverno. It is cool to be in one but it is not a priority for most girls. There are no greek houses(for sororities) in Milwaukee due to the law the keeps more than a certain amount of women living in one house since it would be considered a whore house.

Computer labs are everywhere. Every semester you get 400 free printed pages. Two Apple labs exist in the media hub.

You can't change the fact that it's Milwaukee, so there's a lot of snow. But the campus is small, the buildings are almost all connected to one another, and the on-campus security works hard to keep it safe for all. I've never had a problem.
College Freshman 2012-12-27T14:30:18Z
Alverno has a diverse student body, including a variety of races and ethnicities. A strong foreign exchange program helps increase the diversity, as does a commitment to inclusion for all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Guys & Girls:
Alverno is a women-only college, so there aren't any guys. But the best thing about the school is its ability to help women evolve into strong, independent, compassionate, and intelligent ladies... which is pretty fantastic.

Alverno is a womans college and the woman are inspiring and full of ideas and encouragement.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T17:16:00Z
Alverno being in Milwaukee has a vibrantly diverse group of students, but we also have a large number of exchange students intermixed in our courses. I believe that the diversity, especially culturally really brings a wide range of prespectives to grow off of.

I am not familiar with any particular emphasis on Greek life at Alverno College.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T17:10:03Z
I believe that the ammount of peer groups, mentorship programs and support set Alverno apart. The opportunity for growth seems limitless and the mind set of the women around you is fresh and focused. The atmosphere always feels empowering and is encouraging to my growth.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T17:07:17Z
I have not had any issues with any of our policies. There are definetly policies in place for attendance but none of which I have found to be an issue.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
