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.

Cardinal Stritch University has a small home-town type of vibe. The class sizes are small which makes it easy to get to know your classmates and professors. The campus is beautiful with lots of grounds to walk on a sunny day. The school is clean and safe and there are many great places to study. The only recommendation I would make is that some of the equipment could be improved. New white dry erase boards are needed as well as some updates to the electrical outlets and plugs. Overall I would recommend Cardinal Stritch University, I was very happy I chose this college to complete my BSN-RN.
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.
