The biggest thing I loved about SEU is the people. Everyone on is generally so nice! The campus itself is gorgeous and not too far away from downtown Austin. The classes aren't overwhelmingly huge, which I am comfortable with. What a great school.

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!
SEU is an awesome school! I love how diverse it is . I am currently in my first year and I have had a wonderful experience so far. The school has a lot of organizations and opportunities. The professors really do care for their students and they really provide personal attention to the students. I am so happy I chose this school. There is absolutely nothing I would change about this school. Safe grounds and wonderful staff
