On-campus experiences are the best way to know if Marquette fits into your future. Join our current students (our Marquette experts) and experience our academic and social life on campus. During a Shadow Visit, you can attend classes, eat college food, meet current students, tour our academic and extracurricular amenities, and experience student life in the city of Milwaukee.
