1Marquette University is a Jesuit school located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is a relatively quick plane ride from LaGuardia Airport and a perfect fit for the student seeking a traditional campus environment in an urban setting.  

  • Easy to travel throughout the city and students enjoy being actively involved in at least one but more often several different community service activities.
  • Caring, curious, interested in learning, energetic, involved and engaged on campus and beyond are all words describing Marquette students.
  • Diverse student body comes from all 50 states and 70 countries.
  • Milwaukee is a college town.” Marquette University is 1.5 miles from Lake Michigan and home of the major music festival Summerfest.”
  • Residential campus and most students live in dorms (on campus housing is guaranteed for all 4 years).
  • Direct admit to specific programs in one of 7 colleges: Arts and Sciences, Business, Communication, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, and Nursing (highly selective with only 150 spaces available each year).
  • 275 student organizations, Division 1 Athletics, and 13% participation in Greek life.

Marquette University has all of the resources of a large institution (8300 undergraduates/3200 graduate and professional students) with the benefits of a small college. They are known for their professors and administrators who collaborate with students across all disciplines and have enthusiastic and generous alumni.
