With only one sorority on campus, it doesn't have to be a big part of Webster's experience. That being said, I am in Delta Phi Epsilon, and this is making my college experience. While mainly a community service sorority, we are very active on our campus. Holding events like Deepher Dude and Trivia Night's, we are making a difference. The girls I have met through DPhiE have become my best friends and I could not be more thankful to have joined such an incredible bond of sisterhood!

I received a good amount of aid, with just a few thousand dollars left over, and overall, the process went smoothly. However, before the beginning of my freshman year, Financial Aid notified me, three times, that I had not turned in a particular form (which I had turned it, so they lost it somehow). If I was to give any advice, it would be to stay on top of things, and check in with financial aid often, especially if you aren't getting notification about your award status as quickly as you should be. Before this school year, I made the mistake of waiting too late in the summer to submit the required forms. I ended up receiving less than I expected, and had to appeal for more, putting me quite a few weeks behind. And if you have questions, don't be afraid to call the Financial Aid office, or sit down with your assigned advisor!

Class options are great. The instructors are approachable, friendly and always willing to help. Registration is a breeze and the work load is tough but manageable. There are multiple quiet places on campus to study, resources like writing labs and math labs for tutoring and help and the students and faculty are extremely friendly. This campus has a great atmosphere!
