Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Students find Webster University to be a great place to study and receive their degree at a more affordable cost. The options and flexibility allow any student, traditional or nontraditional, to discover exactly what he or she wants to do for a lifelong career. Academics are top priority, with a mixture of sociable events that keep many students interested and bring their noses out of the textbooks for an hour or two. The entire campus is dedicated to be as reality-based as possible, with diverse people and interests. However, many do agree that Webster could use some changes, like updating some of the buildings.

Despite the flaws, Webster does deliver good academic quality for the cost—a small enough campus to know many people but large enough for diversity to thrive. One of the best things about Webster is that you can have a chance to be yourself rather than constrain your schedule just within your major. A public relations major can express his or her passion for human rights by joining Amnesty International, or a double major in English and political science can play the saxophone in the Webster wind ensemble. Students are treated more as individuals rather than just numbers. Uniqueness and individuality are highly encouraged, and the campus provides a relaxed attitude needed for such encouragement.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If you need campus safety you can call them anytime. Webster Groves is a pretty safe place though. I've never been to the student health buildings. Campus safety officers come to the dorms often to help with fire alarms and other smaller problems like parking, more than anything else.

Campus Housing: It's a dorm, so it's cramped. There are apartments, mostly upperclassmen get them. You're super close to all of the buildings so thats a plus. The dorms are very strict with visitors. Nice lounge area in each wing of each floor. Very social on and off campus areas. Living on campus is expensive, but it is pretty much everywhere you go to college. They use a lottery system sometimes and other times they use the number of credits you have to give out each persons/group's first choices.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Some people get freaky in the dorms..I don't suggest that. There are upperclassmen that have apartments that have some smaller parties. There are clubs in St. Louis and lots of bars. There are some bars around the area and some night life in the University City Loop.

Scholarships: The people who work in the office are very helpful, but very busy. There are some issues they have to work out with many students, but as long as you go and figure it out it will get taken care of.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: You can get a free Metro Pass to ride the busses around the area and metro link trains into the city. Most places necessary to go are within walking distance. Extra activities and fun usually a car is ideal to get there in a short, timely fashion.
