Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

Great school for those looking for a university that is not too big and also not too small. Marquette truly feels like a community and a home away from home. It is located right in the heart of Milwaukee so there is always plenty to do outside of school work. Marquette itself offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities and clubs. The professors are very down to earth and care deeply about their students learning and well-being. Highly recommend to all looking for a place to attend college.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I was drawn to Marquette University because of my search for colleges during my senior year of high school. When I had decided on pursuing a Physical Therapy major, I was drawn to the Direct Admit program that Marquette offered. I was accepted and decided to attend this school. The campus is very compact but beautiful in its own right. In terms of the education offered, Marquette has its typical courses with giving Core of Common Studies and General Education to its students. When it came time to get into the PT program, that's when some concern came to light. The PT program is rigorous, but prides itself in being prestigious. While it has its high points and its distinction of a doctorate program. Classes have an artificial rigor that it gives us the appearance of difficulty as a graduate program. Grading scales make it almost impossible to get as close as a B, let alone get the required grade to pass in a program that requires us to get a certain grade and GPA per semester. Assessments of our performance tend to get very subjective and prove to be unfair. The past two semesters of my first year of the program has shown it to have this artificial rigor. However, I have heard and do expect the clinical rotation program offered will immerse us to closer to the real experience of being a PT. Despite these shortcomings, the program in itself cannot be perfect, but it does provide us the obstacles and opportunities that can present itself in the coming year. I like to compare my years here at Marquette to a funnel for how the academics were. The beginning of my years here was a funnel that had general education that exposed us to not only basic sciences and mathematics, but also faith based courses in Theology and Social Justice that exposed us to issues based in Milwaukee and other areas. As the years went on, those classes were over, but the values still were maintained in the subsequent courses. Even by this point in my graduate career, the values of Marquette still hold true even in my classes as a PT graduate student. Overall, I would do all my years in college back here again, because I couldn't imagine any other place that has provided a home for me to be comfortable and be challenged. What's better is that I'll still be here for the next two years to really cherish the influence of Marquette and to truly be the difference.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently enrolled in a doctoral program at Marquette University to pursue my degree in Physical Therapy. I cannot be happier with how much support I've received at Marquette throughout my undergraduate career. Every professor I've had has given such individualized attention to their students, no matter how many are in a class. There are so many great opportunities for networking, meeting other students, extracurricular activities, etc. Now being in the doctoral program, I'd say I receive even more attention than I did before. Everyone on Marquette's campus genuinely cares about others, and I couldn't ask for a better experience.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Marquette University is an amazing program. The professors of the program are one of the best if not the best in their respective fields. The rigor of the program is intended for students to learn holistically, and become the best Physical Therapists in the field.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2012

Great school with high tuition. It was difficult to secure a practicum although my classmates and I all did very well on the national exam. Make sure to look at licensing requirements for different states if there might be a chance that you move.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Marquette's Jesuit identity drew me to the school, and since then kept me engaged in working in Milwaukee. Throughout the city, Marquette offers opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom. The university excels at preparing students for work and enables you to accomplish your goals.
