Marquette overall is an awesome school to go to. It is located very close to downtown Milwaukee and the lake which give you endless options of things to do on the weekends. Academically, Marquette is a great school and is known as a reputable Jesuit education. One of the best times on campus is during basketball season. If you go to Marquette, you MUST buy season student tickets. Everyone should go to as many games as possible. All the students gets really psyched and the games have awesome energy. Freshman/sophomore year you will probably go to a lot of house/apartment parties held by upperclassmen. When winter comes around, it is harder to find parties to go to. But that's when most students start heading to the bars downtown. Most on-campus bars card very hard, so underclassmen have a better chance of using a fake downtown Milwaukee. The best way to describe Marquette is work hard, play hard. Students take school pretty seriously but they definitely leave plenty of time to go out with their friends. If drinking isn't your thing, there are sooo many clubs and activities that will allow people to stay away from the drinking scene on the weekends. GoOOooOOoo Marquette!
Most classes are between 20-40 students. The only exception is freshman year history/science lectures and of course any general science class. Otherwise you can expect your class sizes to get smaller as you advance through your major. The business school is great. All the professors and the Career Services center totally help students find internships and jobs. My experience with professors has been great. They are always readily available for help outside of class. Every prof has office hours and gives their email address out. If you are in the business school, expect to do a lot of group projects your junior and senior year. They are time consuming but so helpful.
Marquette is predominately white, upper/middle class. But there definitely are other racial groups. There are also clubs geared towards these racial groups.
