Cardinal Stritch University Reviews
The professors are interesting, fair, and brilliant. I also love the Franciscan atmosphere. There are Franciscan-oriented extracurricular programs and beautiful artwork of St. Francis of Assisi. The Franciscan spirit is tangible on this campus, and I truly appreciate this. The coursework is challenging and brings enlightenment and much growth. The campus has a very diverse population and is a true representation of Milwaukee and our surrounding communities. The campus is easy to navigate and parking is ample at any time of day or night. It is a campus that feels safe; it's quiet, conducive to contemplation, conversation, and study.
I'm a nursing student at Cardinal Stritch University and it's been a great ride so far! There is no petitioning for the nursing program which is great. The classes are small. The people and professors are friendly and helpful. Although the tuition is about $28,000 a year, it's pretty affordable after all the loans and scholarships given as well.
Small liberal arts college located just north of Milwaukee, WI with a small campus that has a great sense of community. With nearly all of the buildings connected (including dorms- YES!), winters were bareable and rolling out of bed in shorts to class was very easy. Dining options are slim, and facilities could use major updates. Sporting events were often held off campus due to lack of facilities. Teachers and advisors truly wanted to see students succeed in studies, faith, and life beyond college. Small class sizes was great for a learning atmosphere; however, not many offerings per course (usually 1-2 options). Party scene included going downtown every weekend. The dorm options were either a single/double in the building connected to the rest of the school or a separate building on campus with multiple living arrangement options. Dorms could use some updating. Apartment complexes all around the school allowed for students to live off campus after first year.
