Marquette University Reviews
Marquette is filled with students who want to succeed and work hard. Being immersed in this environment urges all to work their hardest to achieve their goals. Although everyone has unique goals, Marquette equips their students with the tools necessary for success. For example, professors are always available to answer questions about class. Additionally, students are also very willing to help one another in order to excel in the classroom. The team environment you feel at Marquette is felt beyond the sporting events and reaches the classroom. When looking back on my time at Marquette, I will always have fond memories of participating in insightful labs, attending basketball games, and joining organizations to find my second family here on campus. I could not be more proud to be graduating from Marquette this spring. Ring out Ahoya!
My college visit was an amazing experience! Everyone was very helpful and caring. All of my questions were answered and I am in love with the school. The location is perfect with having a urban lifestyle with suburban people. The campus is located only 1 mile away from Lake Michigan for summer fun and there are also numerous activities that can be done during the summer months, such as going to their D1 basketball team. Everyone has great school spirit and safety is tremendous since they have an almost 24 hour limo service that will ensure that you make it back to your dorm after a cheer-filled game or long night of studying in their wonderful library. I recommend everyone looking into this college when they are applying.
Marquette is located in a large city, but its campus is very much enclosed. While the location provides good opportunity for night life in the nearby heart of downtown and also provides volunteer opportunities that match with its Jesuit ideals, it is part of a "Marquette Bubble" that somewhat skews Milwaukee's deeply segregated neighborhoods. The school itself provides a wonderful, safe experience, with Jesuit ideals of Cura Personalis , or care of the whole person, included in the curriculum. It has great culture surrounding its boys basketball team. The community is irreplaceable, and alumni take pride in their Marquette heritage.
