Students should try to visit as many of the schools they are interested in as they can. Visiting is a great way to see what a college can offer and to be able to feel out the environment. St. Edward’s, for example, offers a variety of visit experiences for our prospective students. It’s important to get a sense of where you might spend the next few years!
My ideal day in Austin would start off with a breakfast taco from Tacodeli! Then, I’d go for a hike on one of the many Austin Greenbelt trails. If the weather is rainy, I may head over to spend some time at one of my favorite coffee shops to enjoy a good book and cozy atmosphere. Once the evening comes around, I’d grab dinner with friends and take an evening stroll to enjoy the stunning Austin nighttime skyline.
I love the location of our campus. We’re in the heart of the city and just a few miles from downtown and some popular areas, with good food, live music and outdoors activities. The entire St. Edward’s community can take advantage of the city, and students have a variety of opportunities to maximize and diversify their college experiences. At the same time, campus itself is sort of tucked away and can be a great escape from the city.
