3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am in the Conservatory for Theatre at Webster, and the class load is rigorous as well as interesting in my specific school. However, some classes in the lower levels (1000/2000) are so easy I could have passed them in high school. There are some great teachers that really care about their students, but the administration is only interested in making money. When one of my friends was sexually assaulted last year, I was pleased to find out that the president of the university was willing to talk to me. However, the president was accompanied by the provost, and the president didn't really say anything. She just sat there and took notes as the provost spoke with me. He told me that the only person really responsible for a woman's safety was the woman herself. The administration really does not care about its students as long as the school gets its money.

Overall Experience: My freshman year of college was pretty tough. About two months in the board sent out an email saying that they were going bankrupt and that the college would be closing down after that year, forcing me to find a new school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My countdown I created on my cellphone declares that my first day as a freshman in college is in 49 days. I am very confident that I have found the perfect fit to help pursue my goals as a musician. I am super excited to see what the next 4 years has to offer!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've had a wonderful time so far at Webster.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is everything I expected and more. The classes are unique and I am challenged every day. I absolutely love my school!!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: want to have more meemorable moments and less stress

4 College Sophomore

Majors: balance of social life is difficult at times

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We got all new gym equipment for the fitness center in January but it is still a very small space and can get a little claustrophobic if it gets crowded.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartment complexes within walking distance from campus and they're all very well kept.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The walk to Old Orchard is very convenient and the options once you're on the main street are plentiful. You can grab thai and then cross the street for Starbucks. Sadly many options aren't open very late at night so you may have to hit up the 24 hours Schnuck's a mile from campus in the other direction if you get a late night craving.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Never had anything major happen in my time here.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They automatically signed me up for student loans which I wanted no part in. Because of that motion I had to go to the office and fill out some paperwork but it was very simple and the staff was a very helpful bunch.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: If the variety at Marletto's doesn't please you Tie Too among many other options are available within a short walk. I like the vegetarian options at Marletto's more often than not, and the Sodexo to-go stations have a fair amount of choices and also Naked juice which I love.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: mostly mcdonalds, subway and other chain restaurants. nothing special

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: i have to say i rarely had problems receiving financial aid but i would have liked for them to offer more scholarships.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is where I go the most to eat. I usually go to Subway, but there are plenty of other spots to eat. The ones I have been to haven't offered any student discounts, but I'm sure that's not true for all of them. They aren't too terribly expensive without discounts, however. There are good spots to eat and there is a good variety as well.

4 College Junior

Administration: I prefer a school that is strict when it comes to the safety of the students. Especially when it comes to drug and alcohol use, the honor system, and the general well-being of the students. The only strict rule that seems to be used by most of the professors is the required and graded attendance. I just feel as though I should be graded on the way I use the information I was given in order to solve problems given to me by the professors, not on the fact of whether or not I showed up to class one day or another. If I'm mastering the subject matter, what does it matter that I come to class or not? If I'm struggling and not showing up to class, that's on me. It's my fault. But if I'm doing well and don't feel that it is necessary for me to come to every single class, then I don't see the need for me to go. That only applies to when I feel I am mastering the subject matter.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It wasn't as difficult as I was expecting when I applied for the aid. All I had to do was finish the FAFSA and fill out a front and back page to apply. It was very simple. The easiest way to apply for financial aid is to just go to the office and pick up that paper, fill it out, and turn it in. Quick and easy.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I've only ever eaten in the campus cafeteria once, but it was very good when I ate it. I usually go off campus to a small strip where there are plenty of small restaurants to eat. The food in the cafeteria didn't seem overly healthy, but it didn't seem like it was extremely terrible for you either, leaving it with an "okay" review.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: There is literally nothing to do at Webster after night. Not a lot of affordable housing off campus for parties, dorms are too small and strict, and there are NO bars or clubs in Webster Groves.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: Expensive, unhealthy yet still tastes bad, Marletto's has inconvenient hours for students who actually have class, absolutely NO variety, the only good thing is kind employees and most people are nasty to them.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's iffy. Public safety can't or doesn't do much

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's just that. It's okay.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Hard to get good financial aid

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
