Edison is a community college. I don't know how other community colleges are, but the first two years are basically a review of what you learned in high school. I'm not learning anything I didn't already know.

    Edison (now FSW) is a really awesome school! I was an early admissions student from the high school on campus and I loved it! It's a great place for a nursing, education, or law degree, but if you want to pursue something else, I recommend coming here for your general degree (AA) then transferring (much cheaper doing that, too!).

    The campus is small, but you could get around it without getting lost or late to class. It is a great environment. The faulty are very helpful and are willing to help in whatever you need help with.

    You go there because it is cheaper than other local colleges. You go for your AA and transfer to another college. It is good academic-wise and professor -wise.

    Edison is a friendly environment with a diverse group of people. While attending I felt welcomed by both the student and staff population. It is a really good place to start if you've struggled with understanding material in high school because of all the resources offered to help you succeed.

    Edison State College provides many different ways to complete classes, whether it is online or in person. Edison has great teachers who are very helpful. The campus is a little confusing but once you figure it out, you will know exactly where everything is located.

    An aesthetically beautiful campus with myriad outdoor locations where students can can and do express themselves artistically. Our professors vary from whimsically creative to liberally traditional. No students are chastised here for any expressed individuality; instead, students are praised and celebrated for their outstanding uniqueness.

    Edison State College has many different class times and days to fit my work schedule. The teachers seem genuinely dedicated to our expansion or knowledge. I enjoy taking classes that have an eclectic mix of students (from dual-enrolled high school students to the 40-year-old Mom going back to school).

    Edison is a small campus with easy to understand classes and a smaller student body. It is very affordable whether you wish to live on or off campus. A family income of $20,000 a year could easily afford out of pocket expenses even if the student holds few or no scholarships or financial aid.
