Welcome to the bimonthly Q & A Edgewood College Student Experience Blogs: Twice a month we post a question, and current Edgewood College students answer the question based on their own experience as an EC student. Feel free to add your own two cents by posting response comments. Enjoy. (don’t forget to check out the EC MySpace page and YouTube site)
A: Habitat for Humanity
A: Student Government Association which helps to voice the student body opinion on campus issues, disperses funds to students and student organizations and works to address student concerns.
Esperanza, a service organization, focused on supporting the Latino community in Madison.
EC3 (Edgewood College Communication Coalition), which is an organization for Communication Studies majors and minors, and works to build campus community through networking between organizations. They also host events that will help them learn about possible careers and internship possibilities.

A: I really like to be very involved on campus. I am Vice President of SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise), I am on the Executive Board of Student Ambassadors (the students that give you tours when you visit campus), Habitat for Humanity, the Honors Committee, and International Club.
Major: Religious Studies & Spanish
A: I am involved with a number of organizations. I first got involved with singing with the church choir because of two students and one of the campus ministers. I am also involved with Faith Builders, which is a brand new organization on campus that helps students explore their faith with their peers. Esperanza is another organization. This club’s main focus is to tutor people in English. Esperanza is involved with Madison’s community Hispano center, as well as tutoring in one or two schools around the area. I tutor two of Edgewood’s maintenance staff two times a week. Lastly I am involved with SOS, which stands for Students Orientating Students. I help with the orientation of new freshman.

being able to share my love for the campus with others by giving tours to others or just talking with them at the Experience Edgewood Days or Preview Days.
