Smaller, private Jesuit university in a downtown setting. Strong reputation for both its undergrad and graduate programs. Top notch dental school.

This is a school with a solid reputation right near downtown. Mostly it does not impede traffic. Beautiful campus.

Located adjacent to the immediate downtown area, Marquette University offers a unique visual experience for both local and long-distance travelers. The architecture is rather unique (all of the buildings are different) and provide good insight to the historical aspects of Marquette.

Visited for my son's graduation from Engineering School, there was great attention to detail for every event which included, graduation from department and mass on Saturday, and Commencement on Sunday - all on time, and beautifully orchestrated.

So many lovely building on this campus! The neighborhood isn't the best, but enjoy a drive through the campus or walk with a couple of friends during the day.

My lady friend's son is a Junior there. I have had many opportunities to speak with him about his experience there and from his feedback we have learned that it is an excellent University.

We went to the Haggerty Museum of Art to see the "What is Hispanic?" exhibit. A very friendly security person gave us a helpful booklet about the exhibit.

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.
