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

Not bad for a college it’s size. Very enjoy the small class size, which can get lots attentions from the professors. But the small population and small class room size sometimes also cause some course to be canceled due to low registration for that class (happen to me couple times, and it’s really annoying if the class is the one I have to take). The dorm is bigger compared to UW-Madison’s dorm. I enjoyed the dorm life my first year there but it sucked during the second year, the RA in my hall didn’t do anything. People will be loud way pass quite hour and RA still won’t do anything. It’s really depend on which RA is in your hall, but in general, the Resident Life at Edgewood don’t do their job at all. Sadly, there isn’t much scholarship options and the list of scholarships aren’t clearly listed or can be found on schooled website.
I am a graduate student at Edgewood College seeking a Master's degree in Bilingual Education. Edgewood is nestled right off of a lovely little lake that provides great scenery, a bike path to a nearby nature preserve, and a short walk to great independently owned restaurants and shops. The professors and administration are very helpful and supportive. I would highly recommend Edgewood to other graduate students - if they can afford it.
