“I really don't have much of anything positiveMar 27 2014Other
The students were hit or miss. Some of them were very nice, helpful, wonderfully open minded people. Others were snobbish, arrogant, and had the "Marquette attitude". I literally had one student tell me "I decided to go to Marquette over [insert small public university] because I want to be able to get into grad school". If this is your approach to how education works then you have the wrong mindset! Overall it is an overpriced school that people attend for the name recognition only. I recommend attending a public university, which are still overpriced but much more reasonable than Marquette. You get the same education and I had better experiences in public institutions with getting to know the professors/faculty and better research opportunities. Many of the brilliant graduate and medical students I know (mostly in science fields, as that is my own field of study) did their undergrad at small public universities. It's not about the big "Marquette" name, it's about the effort you put into your own education and the help you get from your professors and mentors. After I attended Marquette I realized that goal is easier to achieve elsewhere.

Okay about the students: i'm sorry these have got to be the most arrogant and closeminded students i have ever met. It has been an intense struggle to find anyone down to earth. Seriously, I have felt miserable here. I cannot wait to get my degree and leave.
Not to mention the nightlife. I truly don't get why there are all of these reviews saying there are stuff to do... there isn't. Maybe years back when parents and relatives went here it was fun, then all of a sudden administration decided to get strict and now I literally am bored every weekend.
You can't get into bars because they scan and they have expensive fees if you get caught. Our campus security shuts parties down 10 seconds in, and there truly is just nothing to do on this ugly campus located in a really terrible place.I cannot wait to leave you Marquette. You will not be missed.
