I was a recent transfer into St. Edwards this passed spring semester and I absolutely love the school. I wish I would have transferred in sooner! My advisor Alfred Estrello really helped to guide me pick my classes and constantly checking to see how I was doing, while I was adjusting in. The amount of friends I have met this far is amazing due it's small community.

In regards to the teachers (particularly the English department) I have nothing but the highest praise. Classes were challenging and invigorating, and I left tired but hungry for more. There are select faculty members and administrators who seemed to value conformity and their popularity among the student body above academics, and the religious department frequently crossed lines with its blatant condemnations of those things that differed from the catholic belief system. The arts were largely neglected in favor of athletics, and the art program suffered the most for this - I took art, my passion, for three years before realizing I had essentially just repeated Art I twice - no new material was taught, I was never challenged or given any helpful tools for preparing for a future in the artistic sphere. I can say that everyone at this school was certainly passionate - but oftentimes it felt like their passions could perhaps be placed somewhere more appropriate.

I'm only a semester in, so I can only tell you what's happened since then, but it's been pretty cool. I'm in the honors llc, which is really cool, because living in an area and taking classes with the same people makes it easier to make friends, and there's some cool perks like being able to register before the rest of the freshmen. Classes are good for the most part, tends to vary depending on the teacher, the small class sizes are just what I wanted though. Food is pretty average, and there's a stove in the common room if you want to make stuff yourself. There's always a lot of stuff going on, like residence hall events or the hall olympics. Overall a very nice school, just rather expensive.
