I went to Edgewood my freshman year because I got a good scholarship, but I will now be transferring to a different school. It was definitely not a good fit for me. The campus is very small and the students tend to be narrow-minded and cliquey. The academics are sub-par, I hardly learned anything in my classes because they were so easy. Even though Edgewood is in Madison, I felt very closed off from the city, and I'm from Madison! If you don't get financial aid, it is insanely overpriced. Basically, my only positive memories of Edgewood are going to the UW-Madison parties.

Edgewood College is a great place to be! The location is ideal, as you are in the center of Madison, Wisconsin. Great professors, extra curricular activities, and programs are offered here. Small classes sizes and one on one professors time is readily available!
The values, staff & campus are amazing! The school is terribly expensive. They don’t work with you when it comes to cost. They assume everyone going there is above a certain income. I know several people myself included that had to leave due to cost. The academic staff actually encourages leaving and getting more for your money elsewhere. The on campus living situation is poor. As well as diversity and inclusion
