Marquette University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (23)
Marquette University is more than just an educational institution. It is a place where the focus is not just on the development of the mind, but rather on the person as a whole. Marquette has a service learning program in which the University partners with several organizations in the community that are in need of assistance. It allows students to learn about the community while giving back, all while earning credit in class. My service learning requirement was one of the most rewarding experiences I had in school. Not only did it help me with my Spanish, but it also helped me learn about myself. You're challenged to be men and women for others, one of the Jesuit principle that can be clearly seen all over the Marquette community. Weather attending Marquette or as a part of the alumni community, the network is strong. There are various alumni groups all over the country. When I moved to a new place, I was able to meet people through the alumni network! While at Marquette I met my best friends, was inspired to pursue my passions and challenged to make an impact on our world. Upon graduating, I was a better person than I was when I first enrolled. From the rigorous curriculum, to pushing you outside of your bubble and challenging you to be a difference maker, an education from Marquette University will surely enrich your life.
Marquette encourages its students to step outside of his or her comfort zone and fully immerse his or her self in the campus culture. This school places a large emphasis on academics but also in service and helping out the community. Marquette molds students who are well rounded in all walks of life. I felt fully confident walking out of my program and being prepared for my future endeavors. The faculty is very helpful and wants to see its students succeed.
I strongly believe that college is meant to prepare you for a career in your desired field, and in that aspect, Marquette University is clearly a top university. My career goal is to practice Dentistry, and with that in mind I am working towards a major in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Business Administration. As these are two very different fields, I have had a chance to experience a range of professors at Marquette. Where I believe Marquette shines is that they have a strong focus on real world experience. In the sciences, numerous opportunities are available to do research, intern, volunteer and work in a scientific setting. In regards to business, many of the professors have expansive experience both in the classroom and in the real world, making their ability to teach and impart advice that much more meaningful. In terms of providing a student with the tools to forge a successful career, Marquette University gets it right.
I received a very good education here. The course offerings were diverse and the professors cared a lot about the quality of learning. The curriculum leaves room for you to choose different areas of specialization, which I liked. All students take a comprehensive exam at the end of their program of study--no thesis option. I was a little disappointed that there were no graduate-level study abroad options.
As an exercise physiology major, I had the best instructors I could have ever asked for. I am also in the physical therapy program which is the third best in the nation. The advisors and professors truly want you to succeed and encourage you to work hard. Every professor I've ever had has had office hours that allow me to learn outside of class. The campus is not in the best area, but the police officers are always around and can get to you for help very quickly. They are very friendly and focus on keeping the campus safe.
Best college ever! Great place to have fun and is a great university for driven students
Great college; small classes and knowledgable professors.
My time at Marquette transformed me completely. Although I was a hard and dedicated worker going into Marquette, I grew up extremely fast. My experience was unique in that my parents did not visit me until I graduated and I had to pay my way through school. But the advisors and mentors I had at the University ensured me that all would work out and that my future was bright ahead of me.
Good course offerings for my selected major, lots of flexibility to pursue related and unrelated minors.
Marquette provided a very practical legal education, and the professors are, for the most part, fantastic. The quality of life is high, due in part to the school's facilities, and due to the camaraderie among the students and staff. With few exceptions, I have found myself to be better prepared than my peers from UW. I would recommend Marquette for Law School, as long as you can afford the unreasonably high tuition.
