I transferred into Cardinal Stritch as a second semester freshman. I was accepted into the four year nursing program. Overall the program has met my expectations. The professors are knowledgable, the clinical experiences were excellent, and the program has unique classes such as Healthcare Economics which will no doubt be helpful in the future. The campus atmosphere fosters a sense of community, diversity, and spirituality, not to mention the newer additions are beautiful. I feel supported in my beliefs and values on a daily basis by my classmates, faculty, and the overall student body. The only changes I would like to see would be an expanded parking structure and a more state of the art nursing lab where students may practice their skills in a more safe and controlled environment. In the future, when I am further in my career, I would love to make a generous contribution to the program in order to see the necessary updates Cardinal Stritch deserves.

I do not dorm. It isn't too much to dorm in comparison to other universities. If you don't have a car (or a friend with a car), it might be a boring place. Lake Michigan is nearby and the community is rather luxurious. There are parks and businesses at proximity. Otherwise getting comfortable with public transportation is great to venture around the city. Many students visit other universities closer to downtown for the social atmosphere. It's easy to make friends!
In my first year I have already thought about transferring. There's a good majority of the school they do not enjoy their experience but believe its a good deal due to the money that is given to them. I do believe the teaching staff is amazing! I've loved every teacher I've had so far! I believe the advising part of the school can use more organization with what they do. I do not enjoy having three advisers who tell me three different things.
