Marquette University

Milwaukee, WIwww.marquette.edu
Marquette is a Jesuit Catholic university with about 8,300 undergrads and about 3,000 graduate students. Its campus in downtown Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, sits on the western shore of Lake Michigan, about 100 miles north of Chicago. Marquette has 11 schools and colleges and offers about 80 majors and 80 minors. About 70% of students come to Marquette from outside of Wisconsin, hailing from almost all 50 states and some 85 countries around the world. The vast majority of freshmen live on campus. The university also offers an undergraduate degree program for working adults, who can take classes on weeknights, Saturdays, online, and in blended (part-online, part classroom) formats. In addition to academics, Marquette is widely known for its athletics, with 16 men's and women's teams competing in the Big East Conference. The school's Jesuit affiliation makes its mark on campus life: An all-university mass in August brings together the school community before the start of each academic year, and Mission Week is an annual period of reflection on spirituality at the school.
