Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is perhaps best known for its famous breweries and the Major League Brewers, but there's more to the city than beer and baseball. Milwaukee is rich in historical and cultural attractions, making it the perfect place for a weekend of exploring. The newly expanded Milwaukee Art Museum, the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society, which hosts an annual show of the same flora and fauna seen in Georgia O'Keefe's paintings, the grand Pabst Mansion, former home of one of the city's famous beer barons and the Milwaukee Public Museum are some of the attractions in this ‘Genuine American City’. But on the other hand, people complain that living in Milwaukee has its drawbacks, given the weather, the job market and supposedly ‘rude’ people.
Milwaukee has a humid continental climate, with four distinct seasons and wide variations in temperature and precipitation in short periods of time. The warmest month is July, when the average high temperature is 81 °F (27 °C), and the overnight low is 63 °F (17 °C).The coldest month is January, when the average high temperature is only 28 °F (-2 °C).Low temperatures in January average 13 °F (-11 °C). Milwaukee has varied precipitation throughout the year, in both type and amount. Although Rain can fall all year round, it is rare during winter months. Snow falls from late November until early March, although snow can fall as early as late September or as late as the end of May. Between March and November, various mixed forms of precipitation can occur, such as sleet, ice, and freezing rain. The city receives more snowfall than cities even slightly inland, and people often complain of the ‘brutal winters’.
Approximately 35 percent of Marquette graduate students receive financial aid in the form of assistantships, fellowships and/or scholarships through the Graduate School. Also each academic year, the Graduate School offers its students approximately $12.5 million in stipends and tuition scholarships from merit-based assistantships and scholarships, privately funded and grant-funded fellowships and scholarships.
Marquette University has a 93-acre campus in near downtown Milwaukee with Lake Michigan on its east. The campus is expanded 12 blocks east to west and 5 blocks north to south. The residence halls and other offices are located in the south of the campus. Outside the campus, Marquette also owns and operates an athletic facility (Valley fields) which houses various track fields for soccer teams, etc. Students appreciate the parking space. Two places that are visited often are St. Joan of Arc Chapel and Gesu Church, the newer Law building (Eckstein Hall), Raynor library, the Alumni Memorial, as well as the Al (Al McGuire Center).
The Central Mall area is a surprisingly open area on campus with trees and space to sit. The Haggerty Museum of Art amazes people with its collection of the works of Picasso, Miro, and Dali. The best place to study is Cudahy Hall which is open 24 hours, spread across multiple floors, a computer lab, and multiple vending machines. The university is easily accessible from all parts of the city. Students can take a free pass and travel on the Milwaukee County Transit System buses and they recommend that one does not need a car.
On an average, 53% students live on campus and 47% students live off campus. Over the years, a lot of residence halls in the area have been bought and converted into residential buildings for Marquette University. Abbottsford Hall is specifically served as graduate apartments which provide a living area, bathroom and kitchen area in a co-ed setting. The Cobeen Hall is generally preferred by girls. Stray Tower is chosen by sophomores while the McCormick Hall may seem like a happening place to live but studies will have to be done at the Raynor Library (so not for geeks). Some of the well-rated off-campus housing options are EdgewaterReal Estate, The Grand Wisconsin Apartments, etc. Living off campus may cost around $11,000 (including food) while living on-campus may count approximately the same.
The university includes 11 schools and colleges, the university has over 1100 faculty members (600 full-time) and the student to faculty ratio is 1:14. The leadership is known to like it when students approach them with their questions and suggestions. Marquette also offers study abroad and student exchange programs. It is not an easy school to graduate and hence seniors recommend to focus on the studies with all the partying in the background. Some of the popular professors are Patrick Johnson (Communication), Philip Voglewede (Engineering), Tyler Farrel (English), etc.
Median salary is about $53,000 and the salary range can be accounted for $28,000 to $53000 after graduation. Some of the biggest of the companies come on campus like KPMG, Pricewater Coopers, Harley Davidson, Accenture, Amazon, Fiserv, Tata Consultancy etc.
In conclusion, Marquette provides a great campus in an urban setting. It is not a Harvard but probably may prove to be a good value for your money and eligibility.
