5 College Junior

Party Scene: UW Madison students are professional partiers. It's generally pretty safe place to party too. The Campus police are friendly and pretty forgiving for any party so long as you're not destructive. Lots of spots to hang out and have a good time too, if you're not a drinker. Plenty of places to relax, read, snack, and chit chat.

Scholarships: Edgewood is a private college, therefore expense is sort of ridiculous. I wish there were more scholarship opportunities here, but you're more likely to live off FASFA and private loans than anything else.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's a dry campus with only a few social centers. However, you are right near the heart of Madison where there are hundreds of shops, restaurants, museums, concert events, and libraries. The UW Madison is nearby so there are more than enough students hanging around and clubs/organizations to join. Edgewood provides a shuttle to and from the downtown area so you're not reduced to walking a couple of miles or spending money on transport. Edgewood is a nice, clean, and quiet campus. Although there have been security issues lately with assaults happening around it. Currently, there are great strides by the local police and campus security to make it safer.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are have been several assaults lately. Edgewood and the police are doing what they can to make the campus and the area around it safer.

4 College Junior

Athletics: If you didn't care about football, hockey, basketball, volleyball, or softball before attending Madison, you will change your tune. It's a way of life here in a positive way. If sports are never going to be your thing? Go for the band. ALWAYS go for the band!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I haven't had a lot of experience with this. I know I haven't heard of any complaints.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The houses and apartment are expensive, buddy up or you're out of luck. Houses can be pretty cruddy on the outside, but location makes ALL the difference.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Madison food is amazing. So many choices, so many late hours. GO GO GO for the food and music and everything.

4 College Junior

Administration: Edgewood staff are pretty darn amazing. There have been security issues but they are trying very hard to make the campus safer, especially for the female students. I cannot say a bad word about the Student Office. It is filled with helpful, knowledgable people. However, they are only good at their job if your talk to them. They can't read your mind, and won't go searching you out if you're struggling. you have to take the first step to change things if you need assistance or guidance.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's pretty standard. You're better off spending your money at the awesome local markets and stores, and learning how to cook for yourself.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't been able to live off campus yet due to a two year contract on campus

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties aren't allowed on campus since it's a dry campus. We do have a shuttle that runs from 9 pm to 3 am Thursday through Saturday and its great to use and get somewhere downtown

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options around Madison with many cultures. The diversity is great.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness level is where it should be and the security guards are fine to get along with. Facilities are hard to deal with sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarship process was easy and managable

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food quality is a bit if-y sometimes and there aren't enough options to eat. I found myself getting sick of eating the same thing every day.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm I lived in, Regina hall, was from the 50's and it seems it hadn't been updated since then. The rooms are so tiny and you share this wooden closet/desk/wall thing and it's like you have the other person in your room with you. Since the hall was so old there was always a lot of dust which didn't help with allergies. Our cleaning lady didn't do much cleaning either, so that made it worse. She did more sleeping in our lounge and eating in our kitchen then cleaning. Regina hall was the cheapest option on campus and it was still pricey at around $8,500 a year. It'd be nice to get better quality of living and staff for the price.

Overall Experience: The only good thing about Edgewood is their Cutting Edge program.

Overall Experience: If you are looking for individual attention during class time you have come to the right place. The courses are by far the easiest college courses you could enroll into. My 349 class is very easy. If you are looking to actually learn something, I would recommend choosing a different school.

Overall Experience: Edgewood does not give you experience. Find a bigger campus if you're looking for experience, especially experience with social skills.

Health & Safety: With a larger city you have to expect the worst. No one really comes near Edgewood College, so you really do not have much to worry about.

Greek Life: Attending Edgewood College means the Greek Life doesn't exist. UNLESS if you can find a sorority/ frat that will accept you from UW-Madison. Some students are able to get in, but its selective.

Athletics: No one really attends the games. Its a very small college, so school spirit doesn't really exist. At least we have the Badgers to cheer for, right?

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You are forced to stay in Edgewood housing for two years, unless if you live near by or try to get out of housing. Off-campus housing is nice because you're able to go closer to UW-Madison. Which is much better than being stuck at Edgewood College.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Edgewood is in Madison. Tons of places to eat and grocery shop.
