Saint Edward's University Reviews

One thing I would have loved to know prior to going to this school... There is usually only one professor per subject. For example there is only one art history professor and one sculpture/art inquiry professor. This can be a problem. If you are required to take two semesters of a particular subject, you are required to stay with that same professor. If you do not get along with them you will have to take them again or change your major! Complaining about a professor is very awkward and not worth it. You have to sit in front of the professor and the dean of your subject and talk through it. It will almost always not go in your favor as the deans are buddy buddy with the professors. Most of the professors are tenured too. ON a side note, The food is not very good and it is over priced. For example a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is 6$. A turkey sandwich is 8$.

I'm just starting out here, but honestly, I would like for the bathrooms to be better. It's really awkward to hear everything, the shower is small and there's this rusty knob above the middle of the shower, and the toilets are super majorly loud.
The dorms are honestly alright I guess, but when comparing them to other colleges they seem lackluster.
The food, campus, and professors are good though!
My overall experience at St Edwards University has been great! Everyone is very welcoming and makes the campus feel like home. The dorms are nice and there are various ways to get involved with the student life on campus. As for the local area, there are many stores, restaurants, and things to do during your free time.
