My favorite thing about being an Edgewood student is that the professors here really try to relate the subject material learned in class to real-world situations; this is one of the very many perks of going to such a small college!

I chose Edgewood because I barely crossed the speed bumps along the entrance and the campus already felt like home. People were out and about, socializing with one another, professors were chattering with students throughout the halls about weekend plans and funny stories from the past, and the strength of the Edgewood College community was everywhere I looked.

I chose Edgewood College because it is a small campus community with the individualized help I wanted, but you still get the big-city feel with campus being in the middle of Madison.
Hometown: Scales Mound, Illinois
I chose Edgewood College because of the small, close-knit community on campus and the location. You are just close enough to downtown Madison, but just far enough away to have nature right out your back door.

Hometown: Oconomowoc, WI
Major: Nursing with minors in Psychology and Biology
My favorite thing about being a student at Edgewood is the fact that people hold the doors for complete strangers, smile at people they have never seen before, and buy food for the person in front of them that forgot their ID.

My favorite thing about Edgewood would have to be the small class sizes. I feel like I learn a lot more this way, and I love that I really get to know my professors and peers. It is nice to be able to walk into class and feel like you know everyone there. It really creates a sense of community and makes Edgewood feel like home.

I chose Edgewood College because I loved how beautiful the campus was and I liked that it was a small campus where you can get to know people better since there aren’t 500 students in a classroom.
Hometown: Middleton, WI

I choose Edgewood because of it being located in Madison on a beautiful small campus and being able to be in small classes so you could get the one-on-one attention if needed and get to know your professors on a personal level.
