Favorite tradition on campus?
The Legacy walk, both freshman and senior year. I believe these events mark the beginning and end of your journey at St. Edward's, holding the importance of the Red Doors and how they are representative of the Hilltop. To this day, I have only walked through the Red Doors twice, once my freshman and again my senior year!
Favorite restaurant near campus?
Homeslice, if you're a thin crust enthusiast like me, Homeslice is the place for you! Located in the middle of South Congress, it can offer great scenery and quick pit stop while touring the city.
Favorite thing about St. Eds?
Its ability to incorporate social justice within its curriculum and that the university encourages students to step out of their comfort zones to have real conversations surrounding the idea of equity and justice. Without these conversations, it is easy to become disconnected from the reality of the world. But St. Edward's draws attention to these topics through many avenues, whether it be in a lecture or through the Freshman Common Theme.
