Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Nicole from San Antonio, TX
St Edward's has the most caring and amazing professors. It is a close-knit community that is mostly good, but can be bad (depending on how you choose to live). Everyone is committed to something and it's easy to get involved--on-campus or off.
Sara from Shermans Dale, PA
Culturally diverse environment. Professors are easy to talk to outside of class. Everyone is willing to help you if you just ask.

Paris from Austin, TX
St. Edward's is definitely what I consider a diamond hidden under burnt orange. It's in Austin, Texas (huge music scene), nontraditional, and a melting pot of people. I love that I learn something new every single day

St. Edward's is about the student and providing as many opportunities to help them excel in their future careers.
An incredibly beautiful school with a rich, proud history. Small, with attention payed to every student. A bit expensive, but well worth the money.
