Campus Dining: The dining halls need better hours. The hours are kind of weird and inconsistent. The food is good, however, and there are always vegetarian and vegan options.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of the Greek community and do not know anyone who is, so I can not judge Greek life. However, I know that they are known for service and research and not for parties.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of food options in Austin, and most of them taste amazing! There are restaurants and food trucks for almost any type of food imaginable at all price ranges and levels of quirkiness.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, so you get a lot of individual attention. The professors actually get to know you and care if you do well. As an LGBT student, I have met only acceptance and support, which actually encouraged me to come out to my family and friends back home. I can't really explain it, but St. Ed's just feels like home to me.

Scholarships: The school is expensive. I received the President's Excellence Scholarship and a few grants, but I am still working to get all the financial aid I possibly can.

Guys & Girls: Judging by the people I hang out with, both guys and girls seem to be pretty dedicated to their education. Most enjoy partying sometimes, but they are typically responsible and keep up with their studies. Typical looks vary, but the hipster style seems to be quite prevalent. Some people are in relationships, some casually dating, and some simply want to focus on their studies and not worry about relationships.

Facilities: There is no shortage of school pride, and that does not end with athletic events. There are many social events on campus complete with local food and live music. Everyone is also encouraged to get involved in the community and help others through the many school-sponsored service opportunities.

Facilities: We recently built a new library which is extremely high-tech and well-equipped for studying, research, group presentations, etc. There are multiple coffee shops where students hang out, and the campus is located on top of a hill which provides amazing views of Austin.

Diversity: St. Edwards is extremely diverse and accepting. While it is a private Catholic university, it does not discriminate or try to push beliefs on anyone. There are many different religions represented and a large number of LGBTQ students, and everyone is treated fairly.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus for my first year was easy to adapt to and the social setting made the transition fun and hassle free.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Located in south Austin,Texas St. Edward's in smack dab in the center of a very active vibrant city centered around incorporating ecofriendly practices in all aspects of life.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet had an internship through the school however, I have heard from other students that the school offers constant opportunities to all areas of study for students to engage in therefore I am not too concerned with my likelihood of finding an internship when the time comes to do so.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have very content with my choice of study. The Environmental Science and Policy field has so far proven to be exactly what I wish to pursue in life, the professors are passionate about their specialties and encourage all students to feel the same through academic support and direct concern for each individual. I am not concerned about my ability to find a job upon completing school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

St. Edward's is truly a unique place. The location of the campus itself—perched on the top of a picturesque hill overlooking one of the most vibrant cities in the country—is reason enough for many students to say they would come back time and time again. But, the personalization of the education students receive here is what makes the University so unique in comparison to its peers.

St. Ed's students are taught to view the world with a balanced perspective and to analyze things thoroughly. The University puts a heavy emphasis on global education and provides students the opportunity to study abroad, especially through its new sister campuses in France and Scotland. Studying abroad fosters a global sense of understanding for many students on campus. The University's motto is "Learn to Think," and by striving to provide students with an education that fosters an aware and ethical understanding of the world, the school helps many achieve just that.
