Alverno College is on the southern side of Milwaukee in the middle of a quiet residential area, which has its pros and its cons. It is easy to forget Alverno is even in Milwaukee because it is not downtown between the skyscrapers and next to Lake Michigan. However, being removed from the urban hustle is nice, as well. Also, living in a residential area provides lots of trees and more green space than living downtown. Milwaukee is a student-friendly city, seeing as there are so many colleges within the city. Everything seems to be within a 15-minute drive, including museums that have days where students can get free or discounted admission. Milwaukee also has one of the best zoos in the country. In the winter, there are toboggan runs, snow tubing, and snowboarding. Many of these events are cheap or free for students. There are also a few malls within a 15- to 20-minute drive from campus.
Students at Alverno spend a lot of time on campus during the week, but a majority goes home on weekends since many are from the surrounding Milwaukee area. This can definitely make the weekends less fun. However, during the school year, Weekend College—exactly what it sounds like: classes that are held on the weekend—brings more life to campus, but it is only every other weekend. But, overall, regardless of the things you like to do or foods you like to eat, Milwaukee has something for everyone.
