I love my school. It is hard to adjust to Alverno's 8 abilities Pass Fail system and their intense feedback but in the long run you will look back on those semesters where you were all over the place and wonder "WOW! have I grown since then. I can't believe that was me." Bad about Alverno- well because we are a small school our our money flow can be a bit tight and that tends to show in the small departments we have. However there are so many things good about this school. Teachers will push you till you get things right because they want you to pass. You might not see it that way at first but if you go to a college with grades they will just look at your homework and if you failed an assignment you failed it no chance at making it up. compared to hear you will correct it till you get it right. There is a place for everyone here. Alverno likes to integrate traditions from different cultures into the culture on campus. For example we celebrate Day of The Dead and we have alters up around campus for people to enjoy and honor. People think we are a conservation college and that we are the typical old school christian college but we are very liberal actually. Advice- Well my first advice would be to grow some thick skin because it will come in handy with all the self assessing you have to do and all the feedback you will get. You will be hurt but when going here you have to make the move to make yourself a stronger and better individual. That alone is what makes us different.
