Our student body is so diverse. On any given day you can walk across campus and hear our students speaking Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic and French! International students play a big role in shaping our campus culture and often inspire their American counterparts to want to study abroad at one of our partner universities around the world.
Because I’m hopelessly addicted to caffeine, my favorite is Jo’s Coffeeshop in the Ragsdale Center. If I’m not at my desk, I can be found in line for a latte at Jo’s, chatting with faculty and students and catching up on what’s happening on campus.
I think some students don’t realize the extent to which St. Edward’s will force them to go beyond their comfort zone and challenge their preconceived notions about the world. There is something special about exchanging ideas with classmates from all over the world who have a completely different perspective than you. St. Edward’s allows students to think critically about their work and to better understand the world they live in.
