4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love WashU. Professors and administrative staff are really helpful and want you to succeed. Many of the students are friendly, but as with any school, there are cliques and snobs here too.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't had much experience yet at my school because I'm entering in the Fall but after visiting I am extremely excited for the fall semester. I would choose my school again because of the pre-med reputation that it has.

4 Recent Alumnus

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration strikes a perfect balance between being strict and being lenient.

Academics: They make you learn a lot at Washu, but you have so much time to do it because you only have class for a couple hours a day. And everyone is your resource to help you learn and do well.

Overall Experience: Washu is the perfect school in every way. It hits the perfect balance between big and small school, smart and fun school. It has its own campus yet it's so close to the city. There's greek life but you don't have to participate, but if you do, then there is a strong community there. It's just great across all fields.

Local Area: I was pleasantly surprised by the midwest. Coming from the Northeast, I didn't expect much but I love how friendly everyone is, and St. Louis is a happening city just as any other decently sized city is.

Guys & Girls: WashU is a school that seems like it's just completely filled with perfect people.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have a great system to ensure that all students are healthy and safe.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have an athletic campus, but our varsity sports are pretty irrelevant to student life. Intramurals are great and the gyms are great, though.

Greek Life: Greek life is incredible at WashU. Mostly everyone who partakes loves it, and there are plenty of people who don't partake. It is a really fun community that a lot of people love being a part of.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: WashU guarantees housing whether it be off or on campus for all four years if students choose to partake. Huge variety of what type of off campus housing you want. You can have it be the nicest apartment in the world or just a typical one depending on your price range.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Only school where you can find frat parties, bar nights, clubs, and small liberal-arts-college-like parties. You really have every side of nightlife at Washu. You see similar people out every night, but you're always meeting new people. I think WashU nightlife is perfect.

Off-Campus Dining: We rarely have to venture off campus because on campus food is so good, but it's also hard not to because of how many great options there are close by whether it be on the loop or in the city.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All housing options have incredible rooms. Whether it be suite style, or a typical college dorm layout, you will find an incredible living situation with regard to the quality of living space as well as the social atmosphere and floor community.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties are notoriously difficult to get into and it is often required that you know someone associated with the party. Open parties are normally loud and extremely overcrowded.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is fine, but somewhat inconvenient since it usually involves planning an entire outing. Off-campus dining usually means paying with your own money instead of meal points which can be annoying as well.

4 College Junior

Administration: I think the administrations handles the college experience correctly.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: The food on campus is amazing. There are so many great options and it is possible to never have the same meal twice. My favorite are the stations that constantly change the meals, like WorldFusion and Comfort Meal.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is amazing. Residential Life really focuses on providing comfortable living arrangements for all students. It is also nice because they put all of the underclassmen in the same area, so you are alway surrounded by people that are your own age.

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.
