"I am currently a business student at Edgewood. I love Edgewood as I have been here all four years and have had a great experience playing baseball. I wouldn’t change it for the world because of the people I’ve met. The business professors are outstanding. However, the business program is absolutely terrible. A year ago my counselor was telling me and my buddies a bunch of nonsense. We all thought he had a great plan to graduate us on time. I don’t have enough fingers to count how many people they have screwed outta THOUSANDS of dollars through making them take another semester. It is disorganized, dishonest and untrustworthy. If you are a business student, think about going somewhere else unless you have a spare $10k to spend on another year of this business school."

"Not morally ethical. The school is only for profit and also becareful if you study there and you are female ( my opinion). Also becareful about them grabbing you through unexpected policies and overcharging you ( my opinion). I am just being a good samaritan and informing you of what is possible as a student. Save your money dont get a degree here ( not worth it and nobody even wants to hire anyone from edgewood college but UW) ( my opinion)."

"Would not recommend, overpriced and teachers lack real world knowledge. School is going through financial issues because they are extremely incompetent. Go next door to UW Madison. My sister in law went for nursing accelerated and paid 65000 a year and ended up teaching the teschers"

"Wouldn't recommend, it's honestly so small it's depressing,you see the same people in the class and campus everywhere! All political too and make you feel ashamed for being..white ! Sorry I can't help to be born the way I am! They even have this bias thing which allows students to stalk other students to find 'bias behavior' whatever that even means. Omg they even have a site where you can upload pictures and other "proof" ! so creepy! They also charge wayy to much not includimg hidden fees and tellyou about all the hidden fees like paying for a bus pass when it use to be free or forcing to be in the meal plan which was hard for me since I am vegetarian.one poor girl was still forced to buy a meal plan which was particularly bad for her since she got seizures from eating gluten. Even though they accommodated her meals, gluten still got in due to carelessness."

"Great school with a clear mission and core values. Small classes, enough attention. Beautiful campus on Lake Wingra! Madison is also a great city. Its big enough but small enough. You can explore and enjoy activities such as Farmers market on the capital square, kayaking in the numerous lakes etc!"

"Edgewood was one of the best decisions I ever made. The quality of the education I received there was exceptional. Edgewood is a small school, and I appreciated that the professors got to know me. The Human Issues graduation requirement was an important part of my undergraduate experience and I learned as lot about myself during the process."

"If you are looking for a school that values their students, Edgewood College is a great option. Having started at a larger university, I quickly found that I was in need of a school where I was not lost in the crowd and could develop relationships with my professors and fellow students. Transferring to Edgewood College was the best decision I made! I felt welcomed and the professors actually WANTED you to do well and help in any way they could. I recall several of my professors giving out their personal cell phone numbers if we ever needed to reach them or had a question. While studying for finals late one evening, my Biochemistry professor talked a classmate and myself through a difficult problem via phone for at least 20 minutes! I am so grateful for my time at Edgewood College and would recommend it to anyone."

"Edgewood College prepared me well for working in the field of education--I use something I learned in my courses on a daily basis. Participating in the Adult Secondary Program (ASP) was an enriching experience for me. Based on a cohort model, the supportive network that was established from day one was invaluable. The instructors are highly knowledgeable and work in local school districts, so they have keen insight into the field of education as well as the pulse of the community."

"Attending Edgewood college was a great way to learn the skills needed to enter into small business management. Aside from learning more than I could have imagined, I met good friends that I will keep for the rest of my life."

"Great school overall. Would have liked a bit more of a research component in a graduate program, but still able to provide relevant and meaningful program content."

"Edgewood's marriage and family therapy program is academically rigorous. I feel as though I am getting my money's worth out of the challenge and difficulty I am experiencing in this program. The program is expensive, however, compared to other comparable master's programs in the area."

"Pros and Cons of Going to Graduate School Deciding to go to graduate school is a major life decision and is a huge commitment. Hence, if you're unsure whether you want to go to graduate school or not, it's best to weigh the advantages and disadvantages. Pros Chance to Work with Professors As a graduate student, I will find many opportunities to work with professors. Working with professors will provide excellent work experience in my specialized field of study. Learn More About a Subject I Enjoy I will get to study subjects much more in depth than I did in undergraduate courses. Do Your Own Research Rarely do I get to research whatever I want when I am working, but in graduate school, I will have the opportunity to choose a research topic and do as I please. Earn a Higher Salary On average, students with graduate degrees earn a higher salary than students with only a bachelors degree. Many jobs now prefer to hire applicants with graduate degrees, and so a graduate degree could present a job opportunity unavailable to undergraduates. Cons Cost of Graduate School Graduate school can be expensive. Stress Graduate school may be stressful for some because of the depth at which graduate students study their subject."
