Guys & Girls:
Marquette girls are alright and everyone is pretty friendly.

No one is going to peer pressure you to do drugs or drink. This is college, not high school. Still, most people drink socially and many love to rage pretty hard.

Solid scene for the most part. Sometimes there are dead weekends but usually there is at least one good party happening.

Terrible. Just terrible. Schroeder hall has the only good food.

Greek life never interested me but I had some friends who enjoyed it. The parties were creepy at Delta Chi, but they were also things you had to experience at least once in college.

There are a variety of majors to choose from. I was so indecisive, I changed my major 4 times and still graduated on time.

I loved my program and enjoyed most of my professors. I had no concerns finding a job in my field and got one 2 months after graduating.

Living off-campus is terrific and is so much better than the areas on campus. You have all the freedom in the world.

The Marquette shuttle service is pretty good, but it can take a long time to get to your location and can take a long time to bring you to where you want to go. the Milwaukee bus system is terrible and seems to constantly change its schedules. Luckily the city is small enough were you can walk to many things.

There are a lot of scholarships that you can get but it's really competitive.

Sports at Marquette are incredible and the Golden Eagles basketball games are probably the best experiences I had in college. Many other sports are exciting on campus as well and campus intramurals are awesome.

For a small city, Milwaukee is very nice and has a solid amount of things to offer. I'm a New Yorker, so obviously Milwaukee was a big downgrade in terms of city life but there were a lot of places that are fun and the bar scene is very, very good if you know where to go. Breweries, sports teams, and many concert venues exist there along with a beautiful lakefront. the transportation is quite poor and the shopping is less that stellar but there are a lot of things to do on the weekends.

Pretty much everyone on campus is accommodating and accepting of all types of diversity. In my time at Marquette, there was even a protest staged in response to the school rescinding a job offer for a lesbian professor. The school does not seem as tolerant but the students more than make up for it.

The workload is challenging for all majors and the internship/job opportunities are plentiful. There is writing center and career center on campus that are both extremely helpful. Registering for classes can be ridiculous though and the curriculum can be ridiculous for certain majors. Why biology majors have to take 4 semesters of a foreign language elective is beyond me.
Professors are usually very approachable and willing to have one-on-one discussions or extra-help. TA's are coin flips in terms of assistance and depend on your major. The class registration process is somewhat ridiculous and the study abroad program is terrific, according to friends who have traveled with the school.

Marquette is a great place to go to college and is full of opportunity and growth. The sports is top-notch and the students are smart and kind for the most part. I had a very good experience at Marquette. The only reason I would not go back is because of the weather, the city of Milwaukee, and the fact that while many people say "college is the best years of your life" school is still school. I am sure my opinion of the city would be different if I had found the places I loved going to in Senior year back in Sophomore year but I was also extremely unimpressed with the poor Milwaukee transit system. Milwaukee also becomes a fantastic city when you turn 21. Before that age, I found it to be very boring. Finally, school has always been a source of stress and dissatisfaction for me so college will never be "the greatest part of my life" because it's still school in the end. Still, Marquette is a terrific place and is extremely supportive of its students and helps them become well-rounded individuals.

There are a lot of computer labs but I would strongly suggest bringing your own computer just because it is so much easier to have all your work in one place and with you all the time, should you have it that way. The MU Wireless internet is strong all over campus.

Campus life is very good and there is a TON of school spirit that I never experienced in high school. Everyone is very kind and there is an extensive list of clubs and programs one can join.

I fell in love with the campus when I visited and still love going back there. Most of the buildings are beautiful and the libraries are great. Marquette has terrific sports complexes and the student union is very nice.

You're in a city so obviously there is going to be a number of food options to choose from. There are some terrific restaurants that are offer diverse menus and are not overly expensive. while the variety drops dramatically past 9pm, there is still a solid amount of food places to choose from.

For the most part, the strictness in the dorms are pretty fair. It depends on your RA but my experiences were usually positive, even after my underage friends and I were caught with alcohol in our dorm room. We were told to get rid of it and that was it. We learned to not cause a stir and watch ourselves, and we never had a problem again. Judgement is the major word here. If you want to smoke and drink and be really loud, your going to cause a lot bad outcomes but if you're smart about what you do there, you will be fine.

The weather is horrible and can be unpredictable at times. I've been told that there are 2 seasons in Milwaukee: Summer and Winter. I experienced pretty much only Winter there, and it was brutal and relentless with it becoming extremely cold in the last week of October (I'm talking 20-30 degrees). The Winter made me never want to stay for Summer.

Health & Safety:
The campus is quite safe for the most part and is especially safe on campus. People have to realize that where they decide to move off-campus can have a large effect on safety. Too often have I heard people complain that the campus public safety officers were not present when they were mugged on streets or even alleyways off campus. They cannot be everywhere at once and it is up to the students' judgement to decide where to go. The heath center is not very helpful and always seems to be lacking appointments.

Transportation is convenient as many places can be reached by the bus system

Students really get involved in Varsity Basketball, and the spirits are high during game days
Sorry, there are no reviews.
