Edgewood College is great I am so happy I picked this school. I know all my professors and they know who I am. The class size is small so you can easily ask questions. Security members here are so nice that I know that I can trust them to keep campus safe. The campus is so small that you don't have to worry about taking a really long time to get to class the from one end to the other it probably takes 10 minutes to get there still by walking slowly. I love the new art building on campus me and my friends will go there to study while watching movies on the projector to keep us entertained.


Overall Rating

When I visited the school I did not know it would be as small as it was. it felt nice knowing everything was so close and that there were not as many students as in other schools I had visited. Everyone was really welcoming, more than what I expected. For example, as my group was walking outside to see the Lake Wingra a student yelled out a window to "Have a nice day!" and that "Edgewood is the college to be in!". That was what i liked most about the visit, how everyone was welcoming and in a good mood. Even when our guide could not find a room open in the dormitories to show us, two students volunteered to have us check out their dorm rooms. One other thing I really liked was the fact that they had their own Nurse Practitioner right on campus for when the students get sick, this was a really positive sign for me since that is the career i want to be in. For other students who go to visit all i have to say is that they should keep an open mind and try to see past the fact that the school is so small because sometimes that can be a good thing since you will be able to get more personal with your professors, fellow students and even the staff.
