Edgewood College is a small Dominican Catholic liberal arts college in Madison, Wisconsin, in the Diocese of Madison. Overlooking the shores of Lake Wingra, it occupies 55 acres (223,000 m²) on Madison's near-west side. The Edgewood College estate was bought and built in 1855 by Mr. Ashmead from Governor Leonard J. Farwell. The land was later developed by Samuel Marshall. He beautified the land by planting trees, formal gardens, and climbing grapevines on trellises. The Edgewood villa was passed from the Marshall to the Governor Cadwallader Colden Washburn in 1873. After Washburn bought Edgewood villa, he made it his home to help further his political career. Being a man who lived by the motto “stick and hang,” Cadwallader Washburn donated his Edgewood property to the Dominican Sisters as a gift for educational purposes. Mother Mary Emily Power was the one who accepted the gift of the property. In September 1881, advertisements were placed in local newspapers letting it be known that St. Regina Academy -- then a private boarding school for girls -- was open. The school eventually accommodated all grades, kindergarten through college; the latter was founded by three Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa, Wisconsin: Mother M. Samuel, Sister M. Thomas Aquinas, and Sister M. Grace. Many Dominican Sisters still live near the campus and participate in its activities. Thanks to the land grant, Edgewood College currently shares grounds with Edgewood High School, Edgewood Campus School, and the Edgewood Nursery School. The college has an art therapy program and has strong nursing, educational and business tracks. It prides itself on its service to the vocational community, with recent 2005 press releases touting refresher courses for IT professionals. However, it also serves a broader undergraduate liberal arts agenda. In 2005, the student newspaper (On the Edge) had finalists in the Associated Press Collegiate Story of the Year contest for their investigative work, having produced several stories which prompted rapid policy changes in response. Jack Vitek is the paper's current adviser.
