"I believe St. Edward's University was a great foundational education experience. Very early in my educational training, I learned the importance for resourcefulness and needs for system improvements through innovation. I began my college career earning my Associates in Liberal Arts and a Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing. It was during this early educational foundation where I began looking at various career fields and understanding that each contained individual organizational landscapes, each encompassing complex issues, some field specific and others with commonality attributes. It was with my undergraduate education where I learned the importance of design and overall presentation. I associate the breadth of my marketing educational training with my ability to create a great Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF); moreover dashboard development abilities. As an analyst, my utmost contribution is the ability to interact with end users and decision makers from different fields, each containing unique aspects and understanding of the problem or project at hand, and create a translation in the form of a dashboard that depicts trade-space interactions that concern or apply to the end user."

"St. Edward's University was an amazing close-knit campus with really intelligent and socially active students. The campus is beautiful and right off of South Congress in south Austin with great access to restaurants, bars, music venues, the greenbelt, and just generally the best parts of Austin! The professors are knowledgeable, entertaining and helpful, and the students are probably the best part! I'm still friends with a ton of people from my class and the year after me. I just can't talk more highly of Steds! Become a Hilltopper!"

"St. Eds was a great place to study. I came from a small high school, so the transition was easy because the classes weren't too big and the teachers actually know you. The classes were challenging and helped prepare you for life beyond college. There are many opportunities to seek extra help via tutoring sessions or the teachers who are always willing to help. St. Eds has many opportunities to get involved in the community through community service, or to get involved on campus. Whether you live on or off campus, there are many activities to know your fellow classmates and have fun!"

"I truly enjoyed my time spent at St. Edward's University in Austin, TX. I was fortunate enough to be able to obtain my bachelor's degree from there in Kinesiology with a minor in business administration. I landed a part-time athletic director job immediately after I graduated. I am now a full-time P.E. teacher and still the athletic director at the school I started out at after graduating from St. Edward's. I recommend St. Edward's University primarily because of the faculty and staff. I was able to interact with my professors for all of my courses because of the small class sizes. To this day, I still try to stay in touch with them, since they are able to help me with my current work position. Finally, I really enjoyed the students at St. Edward's University. I made a lot of friends, and it was easy to get to know a lot of people on campus. The diversity on campus was amazing. Austin is also a great and enjoyable city for college students. I am now looking into furthering my education with a master's degree in sports administration."

"I received my Bachelors from St. Edwards University in 2012 and immediately applied for my Masters because the education I received there as an underclassman was the best education I have received. St. Edwards has great professors whom will do all that they can to help you succeed. The Masters program that I entered was in Counseling and it was like anything I ever known. This program allowed for so much hands on experienced that now being near my graduation date, I am as ready as I can be to be a therapist. I am first generation graduate both for my bachelors and my masters and it's a milestone I will never forget St. Edwards provided for myself and my family. I am also a single mom and classes were very flexible allowing me to work my full time job and go to school in the evening. The campus is very beautiful and not crowded like other colleges, it's the perfect size and I am going to truly miss coming there."

"The Master's of Science in Leadership and Change program was great! It offered a great perspective on leadership and the professors were always willing to help in any way possible. They would offer guidance and advice whenever confronted...they really wanted to see their students succeed."

"I am pursuing my Masters in Environmental Management and Sustainability at St. Edward's University. I love this program because it is providing me practical skills and experience that will make me stand out when I apply for a professional job. In this program we have 3 semesters of classes in Austin, TX, 1 Summer in Costa Rica, and the last semester we go on internships anywhere we want to and engage in practical application of our knowledge."

"The faculty is knowledgeable and helpful, plus there are plenty of community resources for internships and practicums. The biggest downside is the cost of the education- especially for a field that is known for low pay."

"Great School with great teachings. Master's degree has less effort to help with career to international students and also with loans and scholarships. Master School still with few International students, but I am sure this will be the best schools of America in a few years."

"The Master of Arts in Counseling graduate program at St. Edward's University is a competitive one to apply to. The program itself offers great classes with professors that are eager to teach and happy to assist the students with anything they need. The best thing about the program is how small the classes are which enables the professors to have that one-on-one time. The majority of the professors here offer their personal cell phone and email as ways to communicate so the student can get a fast answer. There are only two cons with this graduate program and it is the lack of classes they offer for people who are full time employees. For example, they only offer a 1:30pm or a 6:30pm. I think classes between the hours of 4:00-6:30pm would help full time employees. The last con would be the tuition which is undoubtedly expensive. However, this is the price you pay (literally) for a great education at a private school."

"This University has wonderful services like their Online Writing Learning Center! All of the faculty and staff are so helpful. They understand that most of the students in their MBA program are working full time and taking night classes so they keep that in mind. Their programs are tailored to allow you to juggle both."

"As a first year in my graduate program, I have not yet found the academic challenges I had hoped, but I expect this to change the further I go into the program. The MAC program at St. Ed's is housed in the beautiful, dynamic, and lively city of Austin, TX where social activities abound everywhere. The campus itself is very green and spacious with lots of peace and quiet for studying. The library is fantastic. The program does lack close working relationships with students and faculty and opportunities for intellectual exchange outside of the classroom."

"Pros: The professors at St. Edwards really do care about their grad students. I feel they go above and beyond to make the students experiences worthy. Cons: There is no Grad financial aid support. I wish we could have access to a consultant to advise grad students on where to apply for local/international scholarships."

"St. Edward's was a great academic environment. I truly appreciate the attentiveness my professors exhibited in classes, and I felt like the focus was very much on learning meaningful lessons. The school definitely has the academic chops to be considered a good university. However, I was disappointed by the lack of career placement assistance. The career opportunities office was a very small portion of the staff, and their contribution was the very occasional seminar. I did not feel like they actively helped me utilize my degree to attain gainful employment."

"St. Edwards has been an amazing school to attend to get my masters degree. I have absolutely loved each of my professors so far. They each have a full resume of experience on the subjects they are teaching, and a true passion for working with each student. The MAC program, so far, has proven to be challenging as well as full of practical courses that will prepare me for my career."

"St. Edward's counseling program has a great networking system in place. Former students and professors at the institution constantly offer free support groups and seminars for students to attend. I have been offered two separate jobs because of the networking program they have. Professors and the administrative staff go out of their way to make your experience positive; everyone I have met who works here is genuinely nice and here to help students. My biggest con with this program thus far is that they do not let students know how to pick q specific track: LMFT versus LPC. I have heard several complaints from students and professors that the differences are not made clear enough and many students waste an extra semester deciding between the two. Cultural awareness and diversity training have also been mentioned by professors as a weak area in this program."
