One of the oldest buildings in the U.S. The chapel was brought over from France and reconstructed many years ago. Its provence is circa 1300. A lovely calm oasis to pray or meditate

Visited here during a conference. The campus is beautiful, within minutes of driving distance from the heart of downtown. Even though it was summer, there were a lot of people walking around. There is plenty of on-street parking around the campus, with a small fee. The staff was very friendly when I asked for directions around the campus.

Great urban university. Athletic fields are across the street from a slaughter house so the smell is not very pleasant. you do get used to it though. Several buildings have incredible charm and history to them. acedemics are incredibly strong.

A nice campus in downtown Milwaukee. The students are friendly and have an active and great ROTC program for the Navy, Marines and Army.

A fantastic urban university. They've come a long way in 30 years. The campus itself if very nice (now). And, they offer an excellent, faith-based education. The basketball games are a lot of fun too!

My daughter was scouting out schools and we found Marquette close to home and intellectually inviting. UW Madison took 1st place though.

A degree from Marquette University is quite an accomplishment. I was intersted in their executive MBA program that quite a few of my business associates have achieved. I also toyed with the idea of going to law school. A very prestigeous law school, excellant school of dentistry, and a very highly regarded engineering school.

Marquette University has undergone so many improvements and the most notable being the new law school just off the highway. If the law school looked that that when i was a law student, perhaps I would have spent more time at the law school than at the bars! I just hope that the crime level in the area has improved...

Joan of Arc chapel interesting,especially with science students testingthe stone every year. Visited campus, new tech building, dorms, grounds. Liked the green space and how it's in the city but doesn't feel huge and crowded. Incrdible selction of majors and diverse population. Liked the cafe and bought eagles memorabilia at gift shop.
