What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Edgewood College is perfect for students that want to enjoy a big city life while attending a small school. The school is expensive but they do a good job at providing sufficient financial aid to make it possible for students to attend that otherwise wouldn't be able to, like myself. Overall, the education is great and the people are warm and welcoming.
Jami from Madison, WI
Edgewood is a great school if you want to live in a larger city, but yet attend a small school. The class sizes are smaller, but the professors take the time to make sure every student succeeds. The campus is beautiful and the atmosphere is great for college students.
