    The small campus atmosphere was amazing. I loved seeing people I knew when just walking down the streets. Wisconsin Ave has almost all main bus lines going down it so it's easy to get anywhere in Milwaukee right from campus. And they just got a Sobelman's on campus!!

    Whether or not you enjoy Marquette depends on a lot of factors. For example the student themselves. Is the student very social and talkative then they should have no problem networking and making friends. However if the student doesn't intentionally put themselves out there and its hard for them to socialize then they really need to pick a social dorm perhaps to live in. McCormick is a freshman dorm and it is very social and usually the best pick for students to socialize and mingle, however there are other dorms open to freshman that aren't as socially heightened as McCormick.

    Marquette has a great atmosphere. There's always something to do in the city and tons of people to do it with. I've made so many great friends during my time here who I'll continue to be friends with long after my college days are over. The campus is beautiful and there's always a quiet place to study or read.
