          Why should I attend Edinboro?
          I am very fortunate to be working at the school from which I graduated—I think that Edinboro is the best university ever! Edinboro offers some of the best qualities that both a larger and a smaller university have to offer. There are so many opportunities and choices available to students—over 100 majors, 400 professors, 200 activities, clubs and sports—just to name a few. However, we also offer smaller classes with individual attention and opportunities to work with professors on projects and research opportunities. You are definitely not a number at Edinboro University.
