Webster has a great atmosphere. The people are friendly, the professors are accessible, and it really feels like the faculty want you to succeed. Some of the dorms could use some updating, and their facilities/common areas are nothing fancy, but the common areas are one of severable relatively comfortable spaces to hang out on campus. There isn't too much walking; many shops and services in Webster Groves are within walking distance of campus. Parking can be a bit tricky sometimes; there will always be a spot available, but it may be 10 minutes away from your dorm. There is only one sorority, heavily focused on philanthropy, and no fraternities. It is primarily an arts school, but its new science building and the available equipment is impressive. It is a relatively small college, but still has many opportunities. Overall, I am glad that I picked Webster and would definitely recommend it to others.
I love WU! It is a really great close knit community! I would really recommend joining one of the freshman learning communities! It is just for the first semester, but it is definitely worth it! We formed a really close group of friends and we had an automatic study group. It was really easy to remember everything that was due, because everyone was always talking about it! I would 100% recommend Webster!
Webster is a great school for what I am majoring in, I feel welcomed, the teachers are so helpful and makes sure every student is getting the help they need, and the school provides you with internships during your Senior year to make sure you are getting the feel of working in the field and so you can know what you are good at.
Webster University is a small, suburban school with big school opportunities. Students leave Webster with knowledge in their perspective career and ready to face the "real world." This is especially accurate for the students within the Conservatory of Theatre Arts. Students, either in performing arts or design/ stagecraft, are trained by professionals and work hard to graduate with a full resume. The students at Webster are friendly and speak out for what is right. Students come from all over the world and Webster embraces the melting pot in St. Louis. A great school for someone looking for a small school in the city.

Don't declare a major right away. Take classes that you think sound interesting and you like, and a major will follow.
My classmates are unique, diverse, intelligent, friendly, and quite opinionated.
Webster University is a lively campus, from its interactive classroom settings to its plethora of student activities.
One of the most unique aspects of Webster is how many student organizations are on campus given the small population. Between the approximate 2,000+ students on campus there are 70+ clubs and organizations on campus run by students themselves. Everyone loves interacting with each other and talking about real issues. When tough times hit our country, many students didn't know how to respond. Many got together and reached out into the community to help others cope. Overall, it is a very serving and friendly community to be a part of.
I love Webster. I really struggled with my college decision, and once I visited Webster, I knew this was where I wanted to go. My favorite part of the school is its diversity. Everyone can find a group here. And it doesn't even have to be with people that are in your major! I'm a vocal performance major, and my best friends are business management, video production and photography! you get exposed to so many different types of people, and you end up having a lot more fun that way. if i had to pick something to complain about, it would be parking. but, for parking, you get a spot in the garage, so it's not all bad. you just have to walk a ton. but if that's the worst thing I can think of, that's definitely not bad
There is a great study abroad program.
Academics here are obviously the central aspect. Class sizes are really small, so professors know your name and know the class really well. This helps them figure out what is the best way to effectively teach the class and what material to really focus on. Professors make themselves really available as well. The usually give out their email address and sometimes even their cell phone number. That's really great if you are having trouble understanding the homework and need to get in contact with them. We also have a ton of really interesting classes here. We have classes about the TV show Seinfeld, World of Warcraft, and the pursuit of happiness, to name a few. Webster's a really good place to explore new fields and areas of study that you might not be able to anywhere else.
I think the student body is the best part; it's definitely what makes Webster so worldy and interesteting and inviting.
A person open to change, willing to accept others' differences, and also people who wish to succeed in their areas of expertise. As an Audio Production Major I am getting the best education available to me.
The stereotype of students at our school is that everyone is artsy. This is definitely not accurate, we have all kinds of people here. We are DIVERSE and pride ourselves on that! Coming to Webster you will find all kinds of different people with different interests.
As a commuter student, one of the most frustrating things about Webster is the availability of parking spots. Although I am always lucky enough to find a spot, on most days I have to park in the garage which isn?t convenient for any of my classes. One way to know if it is going be a good day or bad day is, whether or not you can find a close parking spot.
Webster University is well known for their travel abroad studies. Webster also is a private university. I am blessed to be able to pay for my college education thus far, but since the new laws were implemented (july 01 2012) I am struggling to pay for my classes and I am approaching my graduation date. I have applied for scholarships abroad and beyond and to no avail have I found any finacial resources to help assist with financing my last semesters at webster. webster does not seem to know of any additional resources.
The only kind of person that should not attend this is a person with a bad attitude. Everyone here is positive and hard working. No one will coddle someone who is not trying to do the same.
Some of my teachers wrote the text books that several other universities as well as my own use for the class.
while we are a really diverse school, we do have a fair amount of a certain type of students, like hipsters and artsy kids. however, this by no means implies that they are unfriendly or anything like that. we just have more kids that are interested in more artistic activities, like making movies, music, drama, dance, writing, etc. than other things, like sports. that doesn't mean people don't like sports, though! the most important thing about webster is that it's a really friendly student body.
If I had to choose a stereotype of Webster students I would say that we are liberal artists, there are a lot of art majors here, visual, dance, music, performance. We all bled into a group of talented, outspoken students
I wish I would have known more about the surrounding area so I had an easier time adjusting to a new state.
Webster is a small school and has a large commuting student body. Because of this there isn't usually a lot of people on campus during the weekends, nor are there a lot of large activities. There is usually something happening on campus during the weekends, but the events aren't highly attended. If you have a car there are things going on in St. Louis during the weekend but you have to look for them. But overall there isn't a lot of campus activity over the weekends.
Better food than any of the other colleges I visited senior year. The cafeteria has a section where you custom-order your meals and they cook it on the grill in front of you! We also have a board of students who advise campus dining services, and they have fought for healthier food in recent years-- local, organic, etc.
Our football team is undefeated!
