What is a Hillraiser?

A passionate fan and supporter of all things St. Edward’s. From cheering at athletic games, to being the loudest group at any St. Edward’s University event, Hillraisers “bleed” blue and gold.

How to Join

  • Come to the next Hillraisers Huddle, where we get ready and pumped just before the games.
  • List “Hillraisers” as a Student Org in your Topper Pride app profile.
  • Join us on CollegiateLink.
  • Follow us on social media: Instagram - Twitter - #SEUGameDay
  • Subscribe to the weekly newsletter to get information about upcoming Hillraisers events!

Come out and join the fun as we cheer on our Hilltopper teams. Collect points on your Topper Pride app to enter a raffle to win prizes during our game-day rallies. But remember, you have to be at the game to win.)

Go to the Hilltopper Athletics to see game schedules for every sport. All games are free entry with a valid SEU ID.

Battle of the Saints

Battle of the Saints is an annual athletic competition between St. Edward’s University and St. Mary’s University, our biggest rival.

Each year, the two schools compete against each other in 11 different sports (men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s golf, baseball and softball) earning a point for each competition they win (women’s golf is decided by whomever finishes higher in the Heartland Conference Tournament; men’s golf plays a preseason match-play scrimmage).

The school with the most points at the end of the academic year wins Battle of the Saints.

Stay Tuned for the Fall 2018–2019 Schedule

Check out the complete game schedule for all home and away matches with St. Mary’s, and make your plans to attend. Keep an eye on the St. Edward’s events calendar, too, for upcoming games and details about Hillraiser Spirit Parties, where you can pick up a BOTS (Bring on the Saints) shirt, face tattoos and banners.

Welcome to Topper Territory 

Once you’re on the hilltop, you’re in Topper Territory, a land rich in university traditions and Hilltopper pride! Show your school sprit by participating in our university traditions, cheering on our athletes, following our mascot Topper and wearing your St. Edward’s gear.

University Traditions

Our identity, character and optimism are demonstrated in campus rituals and celebrations that reflect the welcoming spirit and generosity that defines our Holy Cross educational experience around the world.

University Ring Ceremony

Hilltoppers’ lifelong connection to each other, the St. Edward’s community and our Holy Cross values is captured in the symbolism of the University Ring. Each year, graduating students honor this distinction at the University Ring ceremony held under the Sorin Oak. Get details on the history, tradition and ordering of your class ring.

Charm Program

This is a student reward program hosted by St. Edward University's Office of Student Involvement. Students can earn charms by attending and participating in designated involvement events. Apply before December 1st for our spring kick-off.

Hilltopper Athletics

The 12-member Heartland Conference covers a lot of ground — four states (Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas) that total more than a half-million square miles of the U.S. Supporting your Hilltopper teams is a great way to discover the Heartland beyond Austin.
