Tracy Canales serves transfer students (last names A-M), temporary/non-degree-seeking students and post-baccalaureate students. Here she gives her insights about St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas and the application process.
What's your favorite thing about students at St. Edward’s?
They are genuinely happy to be here. From the time they are admitted until graduation, I love hearing about their St. Edward’s adventures and where their career paths lead them.
What advice do you have for people applying to college?
Start narrowing your college choices early. Visit schools and ask yourself what’s important in a prospective school (location, size, etc.) and check on whether it offers your major. And get in touch with an admission counselor early on to be sure you’re taking the right curriculum and maintaining the appropriate scores.
What's your favorite hilltop event/tradition?
Hillfest. We kick off the school year with an outdoor celebration. Live music, food and rides take over the hilltop. It's one of the most exciting times on campus because the students are excited to be back, see old friends and make new ones.
