Amazing how time stops when you walk around and your mind sees things the way you saw them, or more so the way you felt them, decades earlier. Marquette has become a beautiful campus, but like other universities, what price the green spaces pay to...More

If you enjoy college campuses, this is a great urban campus. Many great buildings including several wonderful chapels, a really nice on campus library, and a small but quality art museum. However, I would say that the best thing about this campus is the environment...More

A lovely campus, walking distance from many great downtown venues, restaurants and museums. An excellent academic institution with beautiful grounds and very friendly staff and students. The Joan of Arc chapel is lovely and a great spot for photos.

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

Growing up on a farm in Illinois, it was a definite change to go to school in such a urban setting. It was a great life experience

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. The Joan of Arc...More
