Milwaukee School of Engineering Reviews
MSOE has so much to offer to any and all types of students. Being a student with austim was very worried and nervous attending a college with zero people I would know. Freshman week being only ones on the campus truly broke the ice. I was attending as much as possible to learn what the campus will be like for the next 4 years. All are very welcoming; Advisors are easy to communicte with to progress correctly. I knew on my first visit this would be my college! Is amazing to see a dream come true and how well I fit in this college. They are so helpful, working hard for all to succeed.
Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) pushes students to do their best academically, but it pays off. The professors are incredibly knowledgeable and understand the fields they teach, which is really helpful to the students. On the downside, since the campus is so small and there are significantly less students than other universities, their athletic department lacks a bit. For example, there is no football team. However, because of the smaller school, students are better integrated and develop strong relationships with their peers. And, all buildings on the campus are within blocks of each other.
I won’t lie, MSOE was low on my list for a while, and I am so glad I changed my mind. Whatever in my gut told me it was right, was right. I’ve never felt more at home than at school. It’s not perfect - some things are real janky, classes are hard and it’s very stressful. But, I’ve made so many amazing friends, received so much support from teachers and faculty, and grown in thousands of ways I couldn’t have anywhere else. The kind of people MSOE attracts (both faculty and students) are the kind of people I want to surround myself with - driven, genuine, good. Not to mention nerdy in the best of ways. No college is perfect, but if you’re bad looking for people like you who want to work hard to truly understand and master their academic passions, you’ll be right at home here.
