In promoting Christian values, MU encourages its students to get involved in service to the community. There is an on-campus community service center with resources for those who want to help those less fortunate and give back to society. There is also a ministry center on campus where students can worship and strengthen their faith. Volunteerism is a key component of the ministry program.
Marquette offers expedient campus tours on video that can be downloaded to your iPod or iPhone. That way, you can stop by and see the school whenever it is convenient for you, and you will still have an accompanying virtual tour guide to lead the way.
If you envision yourself going to college and obtaining a Jesuit education in the center of an exciting metropolitan city, take some time to explore Marquette University. It might have exactly what you are looking for and be the right fit for you.
60% of students gave Marquette University 4 stars overall.
The majority of the people at this school are stuck up. There are still many cliques just like there were in high school. The atmosphere is not very welcoming period. You have to know people in order to feel like you belong at this school. Unless you are in some kind of extracurricular program or you know people from home, you'll be a social outcast. Marquette is located in a rather scary part of Milwaukee. If you leave campus at night always make sure that you have someone with you because there have been armed robberies as close as a block off of campus.
Great sense of community on campus and spirit of social change and justice. Finally a school that actually acts on its mission to "care for the whole person" and "be the difference." Plus the campus is beautiful and has undergone lots of facilities upgrades in the last five years.
