Marquette University Reviews
Review Marquette University
Marquette is a very special school. Like any college, it takes time to adjust and make it home, but once that happens, students realize how lucky they are to attend such an excellent university. The most amazing part about MU is the community. Basketball games, homecoming, and even finals week bring everyone together. The food is decent, but there's so many options which is nice. Despite negative perceptions concerning safety, the school is in fact very safe. It is a priority of MUPD to maintain a high level of security, even in the surrounding neighborhoods. Overall, this is a fantastic school and you should definitely plan a visit, even if it's not your top choice!
Overall a very great University! The professors are all very helpful, students are always involved in sports and/or activities, and the student life in general is very comfortable and exciting. This University really prepares students for the real world!
Overall, Marquette is a very good school. I like the campus size (not too big or too small), the smaller class sizes, and the kind professors. I have not had a problem with any of my professors so far. One of the reasons I like Marquette is because of its location. Since it is in a big city such as Milwaukee and close to Chicago (which is also my hometown), there are plenty of opportunities to find jobs related to your major, get involved in the community, and to have fun. Also, we are very close to Lake Michigan and downtown Milwaukee, which is a huge plus. Another reason I like Marquette is that even though Marquette is a Jesuit school, Marquette is religiously diverse, which I think is important. Different perspectives can help us learn and grow. However, Campus Ministry has provided me with so many opportunities to grow in my faith. My favorite memory is going on a retreat called "Finding God in All Things," which was so fun and eye-opening. Even when I'm stuck in my dorm room stressing over a test I would still choose Marquette for its many opportunities and kind people. Also, hot cookie nights are a bonus!
