I am currently a Sophomore at Edgewood College, I am pursuing a degree in Nursing. Overall, I have loved my experience here. My professors have always been there to give me extra help and notice if I am not understanding something. Edgewood has a lot of extra help available, I have taken a lot of use out of that, both my freshman year and sophomore year I have tutors that Edgewood pays for. I have been able to get close with my classmates because it is a small school. We work with the community, many classes really emphasize the strength of working together. I believe being here has and will continue to push me to being not only more educated but a better person in total.
Review Edgewood College
I would definitely suggest that you make sure you are involved in a wide variety of activities, because their are some scholarships that don't require you to be the star at a certain topic, just to be involved. Also apply for as many as you can. The nice thing about scholarships at Edgewood, is if the financial aid office sees you are a good candidate for a scholarship they will let you know, or sometimes the scholarships just gets added onto your financial aid. That happened to me this summer and it was like Christmas morning!
I love living on campus. I lived in Stevie my freshman year, and am going to be living in Regina my sophomore. All of the dorms have their upsides. For incoming freshman who are looking for social living, I would definitely recommend Stevie or Regina. Stevie is a bit more, but you have a bathroom to share between your room and your suite mates room, which is GREAT! I got into the exact housing I wanted to, and you only have to fill out a quick questionnaire for the placement.
