4 College Sophomore

Majors: balance of social life is difficult at times

College Sophomore

Greek Life: we have only one greek organization

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.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I commute and I'm not really a party person anyway. Campus is pretty chill though. Most parties are off campus in people's apartments or houses.

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.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've been a commuter student for the entirety of my time here so I'm not at liberty to say much about housing.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: i live on my own so i have clue what the local off campus housing is like in webster groves. i would assume its expensive knowing the area.

3 Recent Alumnus

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

Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: didnt live ob campus so i couldnt say

Recent Alumnus

Administration: never had any experience with the admin.

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.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: rarely ate on campus so i really can give an accurate rating.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: i did not live on campus so it would not be fair to say anything about the dorms.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live with my parents, so the off-campus housing that would be counted for Webster is not where I live. I actually live a decent ways away from campus, so I don't know much about the off or on campus housing.

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.

College Junior

Party Scene: I don't party. I'm not the partying type, so I don't ask if there are parties going on nor do I attempt to attend any.

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.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on the campus, but it seems like it wouldn't be bad to live there. The buildings seem very nice and I've never heard of any complaints about living on campus.

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.

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.
