Marquette University was founded in 1881 and is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There are eleven thousand and eight hundred students enrolled, and eighty-five hundred are undergraduates. The university has an eighty-four percent graduation rate, which is high, but the tuition is high, at more than forty thousand dollars.
The university is a high-profile school, but it also has an extremely high property crime rate. “The worst thing about Marquette University is the safety concerns on and around campus. Being in an urban area, there is more crime, and students are often notified of robberies that occur on and off-campus. It is a little bit discomforting, especially because I will be living in an off-campus house next year. We have our own Department of Public Safety that patrols campus, but the problem continues.” -Christian.
