    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!

    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.

    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

    This is my first semester as an MBA student at St. Edward's University and so far so good. I am very pleased with all of my professors and with the quality of teaching. All of my primary courses are very well laid out and offer ample opportunities for advancement. All courses address topics in a way that you can apply to your current organization so this helps incorporate the skills you learn in the work place. All in all, this is a wonderful learning institution.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
