Saint Edward's University Reviews
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.
