St. Edward's caught my eye initially because I saw it was a private catholic university, which my parents would approve of. However, once I moved in and became part of the St. Edward's community I fell in love. The campus feels warm and inviting! I've met a lot of interesting people and made valuable connections. And on top of all of that, I believe I'm going to easily get into a graduate program thanks to the quality of education I'm getting from St. Edward's.

Saint Edward's University is an amazing university. The average class size is around 18 students, so you really get to engage with your professor and peers. The campus is absolutely beautiful and you are at the highest peak of Austin so you get the best view. The campus has a vast amount of extracurricular activities and events on campus, so it's quite hard to get bored on campus!
It was a wonderful school to be at. Everyone was super helpful and they all loved to help one another. They also have a very diverse campus and held a lot of events for kids to enjoy. They had lots of resources available for the students and everyone was smiling always! If I could change one thing it would be the size of the classroom, it was medium sized in my opinion but was still nice.
