Hi there!

My name is Hannah Jablonowski and I am a current Junior at Marquette University studying Education. My senior year of high school was filled with many emotions. Embracing the time I had left with my teachers, goofing off with my friends during study halls, spending hours after school with sports practices and theatre rehearsals, and making the most of what was left of my high school experience are some of the good memories I have from my senior year. Another memory I remember having, however, was feeling stressed and uncertain about the future. I had always wanted to attend Marquette and was beyond excited when I received my acceptance letter and committed. Despite my eagerness of committing to Marquette, I couldn't help but feel more stressed than excited.

How do I find a roommate? What Residence Hall is the best one to live in? What food do they have on campus? Where are my classes going to be held? Should I reach out to my Academic Advisor? What if I miss an important deadline? How can I get involved?

These were the types of questions I was always thinking about.

Looking back to where I was, and where you currently are, I wish I had answers to not only these questions, but answers to the questions I had not even thought of yet. As a current Student Director for New Student and Family Programs at Marquette, it is my goal for you to provide resources and information that YOU will find helpful. I am looking forward to providing you with these monthly newsletters, and hope you find them useful to your transition from high school to Marquette. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

- Hannah (she/her)

Hello future Golden Eagles!

My name is Madeline Sporina and I am a current Junior studying Exercise Physiology in the DPT program. I am originally from Sleepy Hollow, IL, but have called Milwaukee my home for the past three years.

Hands down my favorite thing about Marquette is the people, whether they are fellow students, faculty & staff. I have not met someone in this community that hasn't been welcoming, open, and honest. You are really cared about here at Marquette, and you are much more than just a number. You are set up to succeed in every class, club meeting, social event and more. I have been able to mature and grow into a fantastic young adult thanks to the people at this school and beyond.

I have lots of random advice for incoming students, so be prepared!
  1. Join as many Snapchat/text/GroupMe groups as possible. Getting to know people ahead of time, especially through the Marquette admitted students Facebook page, helped me feel a lot more comfortable stepping on campus.
  2. Bring 2 sets of sheets. it's so nice to be able to make your bed while one set is in the wash. You won't regret it, I promise.
  3. Learn how your meal plan works! It's so nice to be able to eat at a lot of dining locations on campus as many times a day as you want. If you learn it really well, then you can eat breakfast at the commons AND get an Einstein's bagel from the AMU. Yum!
  4. Don't worry about buying books ahead of time. A lot of professors will tell you if it is required during the first week of classes. A lot of them can be resold on the Marquette Ticket Exchange Facebook page, which brings me to my last piece...
  5. Join the Marquette Ticket Exchange Facebook page. You can find so many random items & books on there for resale. Definitely a game changer.
I hope you are becoming excited to start your Marquette journey. Do you have any specific questions or topics you want advice on? Submit a question to be answered on next month's newsletter below!
