    Featured Review: Junior says Marquette is a beautiful campus, the coursework is academically challenging, the city of Milwaukee has plenty to explore, and the student body has a family-like feel.

It really is nice to have this break in...The one thing I would change about Marquette is their food service. It is just basic and offers the same food everyday. It needs to have more assortment in their offerings and their dining halls....

    Featured Review: Sophomore says MSOE is not for the faint of heart. If you want to be academically successful, you need to be willing to put in the time/effort and spend your time efficiently. If you don't know how to do that,...In terms of the campus experience, I will say that some buildings are more well-kept than others, but MSOE does seem to be trying to make the campus better with the new campus green, CC remodel, and...When it comes to social life, it is what you want it to be.

    Featured Review: Freshman says As a young kid my father would bring me to Concordia for homecoming and tour the campus. He would tell me about the smaller classroom sizes and the tunnel system where they would never have to go outside during the winter. He talked about how the teachers were very engaging and helpful....Concordia has a great technology program that fits well with the things I am learning at Carmen School of Technology. I also attended several events on campus in 2019 for kids with autism and was...Also, it’s my father's alma mater and it would be an honor to follow in his footsteps..

    470 Niche users give it an average review of 3.8 stars.

    Featured Review: Junior says Overall 5/5, Pros: It's a small campus in Tosa. It's a safe and intimate setting; most classes only have 30 people or less. Labs only have about 15 or fewer people. The campus is small, but not crowded. (across campus in less than 10 min) I love that the professors are available nearly 24/7, along with TAs (Tutors). This campus also encourages you to build...Activities are posted daily throughout campus. Housing is 6/5! Freshman and Sophomore housing are usually 2 people for 1 bathroom. (PLENTY of room for housing.)Cons: Due to the placement in Wauwatosa, you can't do much without a car. Having a car is HIGHLY encouraged. Milwaukee is exciting! Take advantage of the culture nearby. The food is also a 4/5, there isn't much diversity, and it doesn't cater well to those with food allergies/ diseases (like Crohn's). The Party scene is nonexistent on campus, but Marquette, UWM, and MSOE are close by..

    Featured Review: Senior says I really love the teachers, some of my favorite people were within. The staff mixed with the small number of students means you've got a very personal connection with the teachers, not just being a...Unfortunately, I enrolled at an awful time.
