St. Ed's is a pretty great place. I love how it's a "small school" which allows me to interact with my teachers better. The people are great, the campus is gorgeous - it'll be even more so after the new apartment complex is done and main building is finished being restored! The only downside is that there's not much of a party scene since there's no Greek life on campus.
Review Saint Edward's University
St Edward's University is a great 4 year private university. What I like about this university is that you feel as though you are part of a community bigger than yourself. The Professors are more focused on students whereas other public university professors tend to focus on their research. The campus is beautiful, it has a church and a mosque and is very accepting of diversity type of university. There are also LGBTQ events and special housings. The education is top notch, its definitely challenging but it will always seem within your reach to excel in classes.
I was a recent transfer into St. Edwards this passed spring semester and I absolutely love the school. I wish I would have transferred in sooner! My advisor Alfred Estrello really helped to guide me pick my classes and constantly checking to see how I was doing, while I was adjusting in. The amount of friends I have met this far is amazing due it's small community.
