Meaningful feedback

We focus on results instead of traditional letter grades. In every class, you’ll get insightful, narrative feedback on your strengths and how you can improve, giving you a more complete view of your academic progress.

2

Small class sizes

It’s easy to develop close relationships with faculty and classmates when your classes have 25 or fewer students.

Dynamic learning

You won’t simply memorize textbooks here. Instead, you’ll apply what you’re learning through small-group work, presentations, service learning and other projects that bring lessons to life.

4

Hands-on experience

Learning doesn’t stop at the classroom door. Every Alverno student completes at least one internship, giving you invaluable experience and connections before you even graduate. Our Center for Academic Excellence offers additional opportunities, from student-faculty research projects to national conferences.

The only person you’ll compete with is yourself. Our supportive community and campus culture will inspire you to reach your highest potential — and we’ll cheer the loudest when you do.
