Most students who have made it through the majority of their years at Alverno say that they cannot imagine being anywhere else. In fact, many students who leave Alverno to go to other schools because of finances or because they didn't think Alverno was a good fit, often come back. Alverno is not just a school—it's a place that teaches women to think outside of the box and to understand themselves. It becomes a home for many people. Alverno graduates go on to become important women in their workplaces, communities, churches, and homes. The College offers students a unique opportunity to take a really good look at themselves and say, "Who am I?" and "Is this who I really want to be?"
Most people say that going to college is an investment in your future, but coming to Alverno is an investment in not only your future, but also your community's future. Almost all students who graduate from Alverno get a job within six months of graduation. Its graduates are competent, well-rounded, and have made a name both locally and internationally. At Alverno, students are pushed to analyze documents, literature, and one another. They are also encouraged to continuously self-assess and focus on their success.
I do not utilize on campus housing but was considering and the options were reasonable in cost and flexible in housing options. I only opted not to because I am able to live close to campus in an apartment for a comparible monthly rent- this was just a personal choice.
I believe that the majors that are offered at Alverno give a slight twist on the same old or typical approach to a career- both educationally and once you are out in your field. My major is Communications, management and technology and this is an entirely well rounded approach to a career in communications. I am learning skills in management that are helping me most of all learn how to better manage myself, but also to understand how a successful environment is managed. The technology aspect is keeping me in the know on what systems are being used in my field now- these additional aspects in my major are extremely powerful and I am finding them helpful. During my evaluation process I saw that most of the majors at Alverno take this approach- nothing is simple or plain, it all has its own little individual flare, as do all people.
The dining hall on Alvernos campus offers a variety of items for all hours and meals of the day. They even accommodate gluten free and vegan diets and have lots of snacks and beverages available almost around the clock. The dining hall is open late, until eleven p.m. so it is convenient for those who are coming from work or have been in school all day and just need some nourishment.
The computers at Alverno College is very good. Students have easy access to the computers and the staffs are always available to help. So far in my College years at Alverno, I have not experience any difficulties in using the computers. Usually if there are any problems with the computer, it can easily be fix.
The internship at Alverno College is excellent. Even though most college do not require students to do an internship, Alverno College require students to do at least one internship in their major. I think that this is an excellent idea because it gives students the opportunities to explore in a professional field to see if the career that they are seeking for is truly suited for them or not. I really appreciate the encouragement that Alverno offers for internship and the use of an internship for the students.
