I have no regrets about going to Edgewood. I think I have gained a lot more opportunities attending a small school compared to a huge UW School. I've been able to conduct my own research, get individualized help from professors, have an on-campus job that allows me to do homework, and attended research conferences out-of-state with the trip paid by Edgewood! They also just re-worked the general education requirements, so it is a lot easier to take classes you are interested in and double major/add a minor! Also, since campus is not so large, I have woken up ten minutes before class and still made it on time. Wasting tons time busing or biking across campus like UW-Madison students do each day is not a problem here. The only down-side are that the food is not the best, but they are getting a new food provider next year so hopefully that will be fixed.
I absolutely loved Edgewood College, I have had no troubles with professors. They all wish for you to succeed, and put in so much work to their student's success. The school is in downtown Madison so you have the same social life as UW-Madison students do. With all the new sports that have been added, I always am at a sporting event! I would recommend Edgewood College to anyone in nursing, business, communications, psychology, criminal justice, and any field of STEM. I also have a lot of friends who graduated with degrees in sociology, english, art therapy, and music - they all loved it!
Edgewood is the perfect small school environment within a big city! You get the best of both worlds with UW Madison right down the street all while having class sizes of 15-20 students. It is the perfect combination that makes for the perfect learning environment. All the students and staff make you feel like family, it's definitely a home away from home!
