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!
Review Marquette University
Marquette University's atmosphere isn't a typical college one. At first glance, the small campus that's confined between the outskirts to the West and the City to the East makes it very confined. However, the Jesuit ideals that is interwoven in its academic values makes the experience very fruitful. Having a an up and coming city like Milwaukee gives opportunity to explore the gem that the city can be.
My only thing with the school is the amount of benefits and access to the city it provides. There's not a wide range of food choices and accessibility to spots other than the city where "must try" places are in the Milwaukee area.
Overall, the experience I had in Marquette shaped me to become more open and exploratory to what society has, along with embracing Jesuit ideals in service, excellence, leadership, and faith.
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!
