  • I spent 2 days visiting the St. Edwards in function of a Congress held there. I was delighted with the Organization, storage, cleaning, communication and kindness that I found at St. Edwards. The library is exciting! Are 2 floors of a space conducive to study and exchange of knowledge. Equipped with many computers, small rooms for meetings and of course a large collection of books, makes you want to stay there for many, many hours. I attended a beautiful mass in the chapel. What a thrill! I met one of the villas and I loved how students can take advantage of the common spaces of coexistence. Walking through Campus, if possible accompanied by a student (super cool service offered by the University), walking calmly, without commitments with timetables, enjoy that peace is the best tip I can give you!

  • Very Very expensive! I wish I could afford to go back. Great professors! I learned so much during the time I attended..
  • Spend all your tuition here! So worth it!
  • I'm an MBA graduate student. The culture at St. Edwards is fantastic. I love it here. The classes are small and intimate, my professor knows my name. It feels great to be taught by people that want to teach. I was an undergrad at UT and I enjoy this campus far more. If you're looking for a university, visit the campus and talk to people. It really is great how it feels like everyone cares about you.
  • Beautiful campus.
  • When I started attending St.Edward's, I was debating about transferring to Texas State, since that's where some of my best friends are studying, but after a few weeks I feel in love. The student services, the beautiful scenery, the close-knit classes, everything in this university makes you feel at home (we had a petting zoo on finals week and I got to hold a lizard, a chick, a bunny, and A HEDGEHOG!!) Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this University
