  • 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!

  • We were in Austin for the 4th of July weekend so our cousin who is a St. Edward's alumni took us to the hilltop to watch the downtown fireworks. Great view. Wasn't overcrowded so my children (1 & 9 ye...  read more »
  • Main building looks like a church with it's distinctive big red doors. Nice place to even just sit on the stairs and view the Austin cityscape. There is a small quiet grotto near the field just across...  read more »
  • The university very good I love it nice place.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I spent the last two and a half years of my life there after a year a community. Presently, I am attending a visiting semester at the University of Oklahoma. While there are some interesting and impressive aspects to this large state school, it's nothing like home on the hilltop. St. Edward's was never too small and always plenty diverse. There weren't too many competing activities, but there was always plenty to choose from and get involved in. The education is incomparable, and the people are even better. At SEU are professors that want to TEACH (rather than run on the publication treadmill), students who want to LEARN (rather than compete in a cut-throat fashion or simply network), and a zeitgeist of passionate, well-rounded UNDERSTANDING.
  • 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
