5 College Junior

Academics: So far, the animation program has been absolutely great! The program has been laid out in a manner that every class builds on another. The workload is sufficient, especially while having a part-time job. The facilities are nice and the possibilities for the future are endless.

5 College Junior

Academics: I have yet to have a professor that disappoints. Each one is filled with vast amounts of world knowledge; most of them are in the field or have been. The curriculum is fresh and reflects what it take to be successful in today's times.

Academics: Different academics at my school can be anywhere from studying abroad to different club activities to help with your major. The Studying Abroad is a huge program at Webster University that they take a lot of pride in.

Academics are a top priority to the students, especially to those who are at Webster based on scholarships or grant-based aid from their GPA scores. The professors are friendly and incredibly helpful to the students, and always invite them to come during their office hours whenever they need help. They never hesitate to answer questions and are willing to answer them during or after class. No two professors' teaching styles are the same, which can be difficult when one way of going about an assignment helps in one subject but not in another. When students are showing difficulties and misunderstandings in essay writing or researching, professors may refer them to the writing center or the library to help answer their questions better.

Some students maintain contact with their teachers even after they take their courses, which is a nice social connection for when they may need help later on in their schooling. Most faculty members help advise students with registration; for example, a student pursuing a finance degree will be assigned to an adviser in Sverdrup Hall, the business building. They give suggestions and provide feedback for what classes you present to them when in the process of registration, but they allow you to have the last say. The school shows an interest in what students are learning and considers what information they will have to know once they receive a degree and begin a career.

Online Courses
Most students that sign up for online classes tend to complain about them very soon after they register. Complaints include easily getting behind in their work and lack of any interaction with the professors. Generally, students only sign up for one online class and say it's enough.
Best Places to Study
  • The commuter lounge in Sverdrup Hall
  • Emerson Library
Tips to Succeed
  • Be ready to be immersed in an incredibly diverse community.
  • Get involved with the campus. This will not only help expand your circle of friends and interests, it can also link you with other active Webster students. Usually, these kinds of students have a broad network of their own that can be beneficial to you, especially in finding an on-campus job or signing up for the best courses.
  • Make time to see your professors, especially when you are having trouble in a class.
