St. Edward's University is a wonderful place. It's literally a family of itself. It's a small community composed of great peers, professors, and advisors. At any point, if you need any assistance or have questions, you'll find that they're all there for you. I encourage everyone to apply and enroll, you won't regret it!

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.
Life on the hilltop has been extraordinary. St. Edward's is a wonderful school that is rich in culture and diversity. Their campus is smaller than that of UT, but this makes it much easier to find buildings and classes. The professors I've taken courses with have all been very kind and helpful; and, the sizes of my classes have never been more than 25 students. As for the community in St. Ed's, the organizations that are available range everywhere from politics to TV to anime. Some clubs put on community events and take trips to different areas in Austin, which is a unique city that feeds your inner adventurer.
