Great Jesuit Universsity

Urban campus that has carved out a nice place for itself. Easily walkable. Mass in the church very nice, but hollow echo acoustics make the homily and readings difficult to hear.

Marquette is a famous university, well known for outstanding academics and excellent sports programs. The university campus is pleasant, although small and hemmed in by the city. Good if you like urban life. Excellent facilities and attractive buildings.

Beautiful campus, very similar to St. Louis U. Easy access, good parking, lots of food around. Excited for my son to begin his journey here!

When I was there in the 50's it was a wonderful Christian University. Since them the Jesuits have joined the global communism movement and trashed the place. The Real Chili place on Wells St. is still the best.

Marquette University is the perfect setting for a city school. The entire campus is centralized within Milwaukee. Students enjoy the excitement of city life, yet have a strong sense of community.

We loved many things about this - very pretty campus that is quiet, despite having one of the busiest streets in Milwaukee carve it in half. If you like historic churches, there is a St. Joan of Arc chapel nestled in a gorgeous garden, inside the campus. Great tour guides as well.

I have probably known about Marquette for over 57 years and had no idea that it was as urban as it is. There is not a lot of green space as is found on most college campuses. It is, virtually, in downtown Milwaukee. Many of the buildings are on streets where the mansions of Milwaukee once stood. Pabst mansion is... More

As a student, I loved this campus. The best attraction is in the inner courtyard, which is a quiet retreat from the busy street and has the beautiful St. Joan of Arc chapel. The chapel was dismantled in France and shipped to Marquette to be reconstructed. It is well worth the visit to see the chapel.

This is not a review of Marquette itself, but of the tour my daughter took as a prospective student. Marquette is one of the schools my daughter is thinking of applying to so we signed up on Marquette's web site to take a tour of the school.
