People, be warn!! Do not go here if you do not money. I went to Alverno to major in the nursing field, and most of the staffs were horrible. They talked on subjects that does not even deal with the tests. Then the Dean of nursing was a horrible person who told a lot of the students that they are not suited to be a nurse. Also, a lot of nursing students are sobs and think they are higher than any other students on the campus. The nursing field had gone bad. More than half of the class either drop, switch, or failed every semester due to their high expectation, which the professors lack of explaining.

Another thing is that this college is very money hungry even after you graduate. They will constantly send you mail asking a donation of $200 and up to help out with all these new stuff for the students. To be honest, they wasted a lot of the money on decorating the freaking campus than spending it on technology, art, science,etc. they only updated certain area of the campus (#cough# nursing ) They could save a lot of money having perennials flowers than buying annual flowers. They kept saying they are the cheapest private school in the US. If so, STOP INCREASING institution!!! People,if you plan to get a house but have a huge ass debt from this college. Just forget about it. All they will do is kept asking more money even after your done. The job you will have, it will not cover your daily expense. You will be paying your loan for a long time, like me…

The good thing about this college after I switch my major to Biology, the teachers will make time to meet with you and explain to you about the different subjects, and they will tutor you. The biology professors understand the subjects and they tried their best to related to real life jobs. The business office understand about the money struggles you have, and they will help out with another scholarship or put you on a payment which you can afford, they also extend the payment plans. The internship office will try to help you find interns that pay or have scholarships that paid you while your on it. classes are small and they are a lot of group discussions and subjects. They teach you how to deal with people whom you strongly dislike in a nice mean way(trust me…i rather work alone or work with guys than girls.) The library have electronic resources to do your research project, if not they are connected to other colleges to get the materials you need and they even paid for the research articles that will forever be in Alverno data space. they have classes for you to prepare for the advance college (to be honesty, most graduated college don't care as long you have the money)…. this college is not bad place to go to but be warn. they are money hungry and nursing students are sobs. if they stop increasing the amount of intuition, it might be okay school. however, would i come here again…NO!
