Marquette is a well-rounded university and it is a joy to go here. I know at MU, I will get a great education and become a better person as a whole. They have all the qualities I was looking for, and more!

Marquette is a place where you can be challenged academically but still enjoy your classes.The topics, even the ones required in the Core of Common Studies, are interesting and will definitely help you in the future. The professors not only teach you the required information but also life lessons that you will use in the future. You meet life long friends here as well as people you only dreamed of meeting. I was pretty shy when I first came to college and I was afraid that I was not going to meet new people. However, I met one of my best friends at orientation! Even though Marquette is a mid-sized school, it feels like home.
