Overall Rating

When I toured the campus before deciding to attend school at St. Edward's I feel in love. It is a beautiful campus and everyone is helpful. Currently there is a lot of construction going on on campus so it is easiest to travel on the streets around campus rather than through campus if you need to get somewhere in a hurry. There are always events going on that are geared toward diverse audiences and it is really a lot of fun.
