Campus Housing: They help give you one on one help, making sure you keep up the pace in class, help you move to the next level so you will be successful. Your last school year you will have an internship, automatically get hired on after you graduate. They will help you find a job in your career path, that's what makes them special.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure about this

Campus Housing: best dorms in the country

Majors: I applied to be in the College of Arts and Sciences. I will declare my major, PNP (psychology-neuroscience-philosophy) soon. All I really need to do is update my profile on WebSTAC and then make an appointment with the head of this department to go over the requirements.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's nice because the University owns off-campus apartments for upper classmen, and these are relatively close to the school, so it's pretty stress free when it comes to finding a place to live.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are fraternity houses, but no sorority houses. The fraternity houses frequently host parties. Sororities don't do too much on campus, although it is a good way to meet new people.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus food is delicious; there is a lot of variety. BD serves good food, but some special places include the Law Cafe and Holmes Lounge. I'm also a fan of Stanley's, in the basement of Lopata Hall.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Less than a mile off campus, there is a street called the Delmar Loop full of restaurants. There are some chains, such as Chipotle, Starbucks, and Noodles & Co. There is an amazing bbq restaurant that is a little nicer; there are endless ethnic restaurants, a great burger/rootbeer restaurant, a mac n cheese restaurant, several sandwich shops too.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The alcohol policy is relatively lenient; there is an "open door policy," in that a small amount of alcohol may be drank within a dorm if the door is open and it is not too loud. Of course, this is rarely practiced, but usually it's ok, depending on how strict the RA is.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms here are wonderful; they are spacious, with nice carpeting and temper-pedic mattresses. They are very clean. Most dorms have personal bathrooms shared among 4-6 others, and the school provides cleaning staff to clean the showers, sink, and bathroom stall. The dorms are pretty expensive, but they are luxurious compared to many other universities.

Athletics: The overall student body is relatively athletic, in that the gym facilities are consistently busy. However, most students do not pay attention to varsity sports. Our sports are D3, and although in some cases we are quite good in our division (such as the male and female basketball teams), there is not a strong fan base for any of the school's sports.

3 College Student

Administration: Wash U is very fair and cares a lot about the lives of its students.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorms are a bit expensive, but it i well worth every penny. From the tempurpedic mattresses to the maids that clean your bathrooms once a week, it is almost like living in a hotel filled with your closest friends.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty low key at Wash U- it doesnt define you, but it is a great way to make friends that last a lifetime and get invited to dances and parties.

4 College Student

Party Scene: Its better than you would think, for a smart school. The thing I like is that the kids that dont drink and the ones that do all party together, and there is no pressure to drink at parties but it is easy to if you choose so.

Health & Safety: The school is super safe- although you will hear about the occasional robbery, WUPD patrols constantly and it is in Clayton which is a very safe neighborhood

2 College Student

Athletics: Not many people care about the athletics- I mean, we are division 3. People (especially your freshman year) will go to support their athletic friends!

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are multiple places to live that are close to campus, but it will be hard to let go of all the amenities that the South 40 has to offer

3 College Student

Overall Experience: It was alright. Interviews can be extremely stressful, but doing your reserch on many different types of schools will help you be satisfied with your choice

5 College Student

Campus Quality: its BEAUTIFUL. We are consistently proven to have one of the best campuses in the world.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Beyond the initial enthusiasm that so many students express for their overall experience at Wash U, a common subject of praise relates to the freedom that characterizes student life. In the academic sense, this translates into an ability to bend the rules, an encouragement to build things if they aren't already available, and support from the University for students who propose new and well-thought-out initiatives. Wash U is a young school, and the University is very much interested in channeling the energy and enterprises of its students into new traditions and organizations that can help shape its identity.

Still, not everybody likes Wash U from the outset. St. Louis can get dull, the academic life can become overwhelming, and the social scene will eventually feel a bit claustrophobic. But the quality of the faculty, the ease and relative affordability of life in St. Louis, and the receptiveness of the administration to student projects makes it a place where a motivated student can do anything he or she wants. In the last few years, three students have won Rhodes scholarships, one started a magazine for homeless people to sell on the streets, another started a fencing club, one worked for David Letterman, and another worked on the Pathfinder mission to Mars. For the one who learns to draw on the richness of the community and resources offered by the Wash U community and St. Louis, the sky is the limit.
