    Cardinal Stritch University is a school on the decline, but the support staff and faculty are first-rate, fighting like tigers to keep intellectual and academic integrity while fighting the current "woke" political climate. Sadly, the current administration is too concerned about embracing diversity and social justice than offering the high-quality education someone would expect at a Catholic university. Drag Queen story time? Yep, they had it my graduate year (2020). Safe spaces? Yep, those too, with pizza and puppies. If they could scratch this sort of garbage they might be able to salvage their declining reputation and be an excellent academic institution.

    The instructions are overall easy to follow, and teachers are always willing to answer questions online through email or phone calls. Any time I had a question about any of the online assignments, they would always give me a clear answer. My tutor would help me with many of my writing assignments by reviewing it and giving me some feedback on what I can add or change. It was an overall a decent experience. There were some problems I had with my online experience. These are mostly personal problems because I strongly prefer to be at school physically so I can listen to all the instructions and being able to ask questions easier. It is a lot harder to keep track of multiple classes and assignments online than it is to being able to be there physically and have a much better understanding on what you need to do for every assignment.
    All of the teachers, tutors and advisors are overall incredibly helpful. They always listen whenever any students have any questions, and are always willing to set up meetings whenever we need more help. The campus layout is easy to remember, and there are plenty of quiet places for you to go to and study for upcoming exams. Everyone will always keep you motivated to keep trying your best and will never give up on a student. All of the other students are respectful with one another, and there has never been any fights on campus during my time there. It is an overall very comfortable place to be and is very easy to adapt.
