Austin is such a beautiful city with proximity to nightlife, shopping, amazing restaurants, and beautiful scenery including the green belt and town lake. Amongst the beautiful scenery Austin is home to year round music festivals including Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Marley Fest and South by Southwest which helps our local economy thrive by bringing in people from all around the world to our amazing city. The people of Austin are relaxed and extremely friendly. If one were to ever doubt southern hospitality, come to Austin and quickly have your mind changed. Safety here is great as well, it's rare to ever be some place alone seeing as people are always out and about during all hours of the day and night; I've never felt unsafe in my environment while roaming about the city. It's hard to speak so highly of Austin without mentioning that we are located in the greatest state ever, Texas! The best part of Texas is the almost year round sunshine, making outdoor life an almost every day activity. If you do not like the weather Monday, stick around til Tuesday as it will likely do a 180!

Mostly White Upperclass Hipster Doochbags – I've never seen anything like it, droves of boring hipster Caucasian kids running around spouting crap about their daily lives. This is supposed to be a Catholic University WTF! I have never in my life been around such uninteresting, self centered, and obnoxious doochebag people (literally snotty nosed White kids). The kids here on campus seem to only care about watching movies, getting laid, drinking and smoking (the norms for college I know) and how America sucks. This would all be well and fine but tuition here is some of the most expensive in Texas. This is a private school, you'd think the kids here would be more concerned about the real world. It's like living in Disney World every day here (Berkeley comes to mind). I'm really disappointed, but I'm gonna go ahead and finish and pursue my Masters degree somewhere else. Also, the parking sucks in a way that I can't describe!

St. Edward's University is simply the best university there is. My freshman year of college was a blast, due to the courses I was taking and also to the events hosted by the university. St. Ed's makes you feel at home, you have a home away from home and a family away from your own family. The professors, counselors and staff are all sweet and approachable. If a student asks for something they will do anything and everything they can to help the student out. I am proud to call myself a true Hilltopper!
