Overall Experience: My school is the only University with the Interactive Game studies major which is dedicated to the production of video games. Other university's may have a game program but with a mix of other content not needed. My school has the game program split into a major for the business of games and then my major which is how to program,write, and design games alone with a tad of the business side for understanding. I love that these majors are dedicated and also provide many materials which train you ahead of time for the jobs in the future. Besides my Major, my school is small which allows classes to have 25 or fewer students. This makes the class more personal and also allows the professors to help everyone easier.

Overall Experience: 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!

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been amazing. I am glad i chose this school to be my home for the next four years. One of my favorite experiences has been touring as a freshman. It is crazy to think i never toured the school, but i give tours. I learned new things about campus every time i gave a tour. I feel that St. Ed's is unique because i feel we are a close knit school. Even though you don't know certain people, you will recognize them because you will see them around campus. If i could do it all over, i would choose St. Ed's because it has given me the best experiences and i definitely feel like i am at home.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a few places to live off campus that are directly across the street from the school. The school does not offer help with off campus housing as far as I know.

Party Scene: I've only heard of the off campus parties. However, sometimes organizations throw parties on campus and those parties are usually pretty fun.

Administration: Overall The school is strict where it should be and lenient where it should be. I believe it has a very good Administration overall.

Scholarships: I was very happy with my financial aid experience. When my dad lost his job halfway through the first semester they helped me get more aid and it was relatively painless.

Campus Food: Most of the food on campus is okay at best. Some of the meals served in Hunt are really good. However, I have gotten food poisoning from eating cafeteria food once.

Campus Housing: I live off campus but many of my friends live on campus and I have visited them in their dorms. They told me that most of the time they don't mind living on campus and the people are really friendly in the dorms but living so close with someone you don't know can cause arguments.

Athletics: Varsity games are fun to go to and encouraged! Intramural and club sports are just as fun and less of a commitment!

Campus Food: The Huddle was always hit or miss but much better than the old Huddle. The meal plan is not a real meal plan, it's a set amount of money not a certain amount of meals and the food is expensive! I had friends that ran out of meal plan because of the high prices!

Administration: Campus police are pretty strict on enforcing broken rules.

Party Scene: It's pretty fun if you're just starting off and looking to make friends, but it gets tiring after a while because you run into the same people. You'll end up crashing UT parties for a change.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
