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!
Review Cardinal Stritch University
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.
CSU is a great school for nursing and education students. Otherwise, they have a limited amount of majors and minors. They don't offer French or Linguistics, which are my personal desired majors. This school is financially friendly to undocumented students (including DACA students) and facilitates access to a higher-level education. Without this aid I wouldn't have been able to attend college in the first place. The staff is incredibly involved in your academics and wants to see you succeed. Studying abroad is highly encouraged at Stritch, and there are many opportunities (even for students with DACA).
