Most facilities on campus seem to cater to the students' needs, except on the aesthetic level. In comparison to the Emerson Library and other more recent constructions, the academic buildings could use a little TLC. The H. Sam Priest Center and Pearson House were originally built within the late 1800s and early 1900s, and were residential houses before they became academic centers. The classrooms can be cramped and small, depending on the room, especially in Pearson House. The University Center is in need of a new fitness center, as there is overcrowding and old equipment.

All of the classrooms could be updated, too, in terms of technology, especially with the classroom desktop computers that can be very slow and bothersome if a professor needs it for class. However, the buildings are structurally sound and provide what is necessary. The campus is quite clean and well-kept; the janitors and maintenance crew are always moving about the campus, keeping themselves busy. All in all, the facilities suffice students, but some of the buildings could certainly use some work.

Bar on Campus
There is no on-campus bar, but Weber's Front Row is less than a mile from campus, and many students hang out here.
Bowling on Campus
There is an intramural Webster bowling league that is quite popular, usually around February or the middle of the second semester. For this, students use an off-campus bowling alley, like Crestwood Bowl.
Coffeehouse on Campus
The Cyber Café in the Emerson Library has a café vibe going on, with the numerous chairs, computer stations, and various food and drink options. It is also a good place to meet for academic purposes or just for some face-to-face conversation.
Movie Theater on Campus
The Moore Auditorium provides a free year-long film series for those with a Webster student ID. It also has hosted various films during the St. Louis International Film Festival, also free to Webster students.
"Green" Initiatives
Various campus clubs are promoting a "greener" campus, not to mention the two clubs on campus devoted specifically to green initiatives. Some events are also held in an effort to promote greener living, like donating unwanted books or textbooks for others to use in Third World countries. There have also been free reusable water bottle handouts, hands-on activities, and some of the offices reusing the backs of paper.

Favorite Things To Do
Students hang out at on- and off-campus restaurants for some lunch or dinner with friends, or choose to hang out in their dorms or apartments. By using some transportation, they can visit local hot spots, bars, clubs, sporting events, and movie theaters, among other local area attractions. Students also look for on-campus events for when there is some time to kill.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
Some clubs are very active on campus, and there are some that do not continue into the next year. LGBTQ Alliance, MCISA, the Commuter Council, and the SGA are only a few clubs and organizations that have a strong voice on campus. When starting your own club, the process is very easy. All that is asked for is a form to be filled out through SGA and to find a club adviser from the Webster faculty or staff.
