Marquette University has an amazing campus and is full of intelligent person. After researching this university I think many people will be able to fit right in. Overall Marquette seems like an great choice for prospective students.
Khari from Philadelphia, PA
Marquette has a very nice atmosphere that makes it feel like a small school but is big enough to be social. The academic rigor is high, I would recommend it to all health science majors. The opportunities here are endless and the school is very well connected with the surrounding community.
Christine from Chicago, IL
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!
Kara from Palatine, IL
Everyone at Marquette is really friendly which makes the transition in very easy. There are so many opportunities to join clubs and be a part of the Milwaukee community. Also, the faculty really cares about your future and success and they are eager to help you reach your goals.
Monika from Village Of Lakewood, IL
What you get out of Marquette is really all about what you want. It has something for everyone, all it takes is finding your place (which is what college is all about, am I right?). Whatever your interest is, be it performing arts, sports, academics, clubs and organizations, or just meeting new people and doing new things, you will find all that and more here.
