Saint Edward's University Reviews
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!
Horrible on-campus living experience. When it comes to problematic roommates, the only thing Residence Life suggest you do is move without holding the aggressor accountable for their actions. I've had UPD try to discredit my testimony and didn't do anything about the situation. You're better consulting APD. Despite it being a small school , the environment was extremely clique-ish and was hard to maintain a sufficient social circle. My first step on campus, I was bombarded with questions relating to why I didn't attend a university in my home state since I was an out of state student. This persisted even through the Spring semester. Given the variety of geographic backgrounds, especially from around the world, it was always me who would be asked those questions. What makes it worse is the fact that others rushed to defend such questioning as "conversation starters" as if it was ok for people to suddenly pretend to be admission officers even after the Intent to Enroll was submitted.
