A life-changing, world-changing education

An education at St. Edward’s University, a top liberal arts college, will challenge you and change you — unpredictably and (we think) wonderfully, too. 

Come here and you’ll embark on a journey of personal and intellectual discovery. You’ll have to work harder and look deeper, but that just means you’ll learn more and go farther. We are guided by the words of Holy Cross founder Blessed Basil Moreau: “The mind will not be educated at the expense of the heart.” That means you’ll follow your academic curiosity and also pursue a more just world, whether you make a difference on a global scale or closer to home.
