Cardinal Stritch University Reviews
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.
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.
