Explore the Near West Side with Mary

Mary Faye BrownI'm Mary Faye Brown, a senior at Marquette from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

As I am graduating this spring with my Degree of Registered Nurse, my parents are coming in to visit me and see the campus for the first time since they dropped me off at Marquette three long years ago. They have taken the train in from Chippewa Falls and are staying at the Ambassador Hotel, so I am going to pick them up and show them around campus and the wonderful Near West Side neighborhood.

In addition to my experience, clicking on the site points also reveals the history of those buildings and provides a link to see more pictures and learn more about that building.
