I'm a rising 4th year in the BusinessQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I'm a rising 4th year in the Business program and to be quite honest, I've had an experience here that I'd like to forget (after I graduate). The campus is located in a nasty area and there are people from the city who bother and intimidate you into giving them money, etc. I've rarely felt safe going out with less than a group of 4 at night. The business education itself is average at best, and many students work tirelessly only to end up doing terrible on exams. Compared to what I've heard of other programs, the business education they provide doesn't prepare students well to get out into the business world and climb up the ranks. I've made a handful of friends who are very chill and down to earth, but overall, the student body is about as stuck up and arrogant as I've ever experienced before.

Marquette is a brand-name, that is all.AverageCriminal
Marquette is a brand-name, that is all. Our facilities aren't particularly nice with exception to some of the specific programs like law, dental or engineering or the like. Our gym is old, the cafeteria food is limited, and especially in comparison to the nearby state school, student resources are pitiful. Anyone not affiliated with Marquette will be treated as such. Basketball players are known to get preferential treatment (especially when it comes to work load, and financial disbursement). Marquette University shows little to no mercy when it comes to school payments resulting in many students (even good students) removing themselves based on the inability to pay semesters upfront. The majority of teaching assistants in the Chemistry, Biology and Physics departments are foreign, smart but very difficult to understand. Many of the general counselors were unhelpful, and very passive when it comes to their students. (if you do attend, please seek a counselor in your desired field immediately). In as much, the classes at this school are designed to be non- transferable to other schools, as well as other majors. Many friends that had to transfer in sophomore, junior and even freshmen year, were unable to transfer a large amount of classes. One girl in her junior year at Michigan state, was considered a sophomore because Marquette accepted so few of her credits. Overall, the atmosphere at Marquette is unkind if you are not wealthy or on a full ride. One final word of advice: Remember to read your bulletin (it will show what classes are required for your major) and try to fulfill general requirements until you are SURE you have chosen your field.

You can get the same education at aAverageHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
You can get the same education at a state school for a much lower price. Profs are generally good. The campus area leaves a lot to be desired. The air literally stinks much of the time. Milwaukee's weather is windy, damp, overcast, and cold. Drinking and basketball are the two primary sources of entertainment. There are a lot of nouveau rich kids who think they are the shit. There are many other students who went to Marquette b/c they thought they were too good for State U, but possess average intellects and often below average social skills. In retrospect, I wish I had gone elsewhere.
