Mike Acosta, Director of Admission



1. What is your favorite restaurant near campus?
My favorite place has always been Shady Grove. On a cool night, sitting under the trees, listening to live music, you cannot beat Shady Grove. Great burgers, too. 

2. What advice do you have for people applying to college?
Take advantage of the essay/personal statement. It is the best opportunity to tell us your story and let us know about your hopes, dreams and goals for the future. Instead of thinking about your essay/personal statement as a chore, think about it as a chance to help us get to know you better.

3. What is something that people don’t know about St. Edward’s?
Last year, St. Edward’s students volunteered nearly 79,000 hours of their time to service projects both locally and internationally.
