About Marquette University

Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

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.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

Overall Rating

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.
