Most Helpful Review for Washington University in St Louis

The classes I have taken have been interesting and challenging. It's a good idea to do some research on the professor, but generally you can expect a good experience. Class size really varies. I've had classes with 12 students, but also classes with 100+. Typically this doesn't affect the quality of the course, or at least it hasn't in my experience.

    My first visit to the campus was absolutely incredible and extremely informative. I spent one day there, took the tour, and decided it was my dream college! Everything there from the campus organization to the atmosphere itself was amazing and I would be honored if I got accepted.

    WashU was everything I could have hoped my college experience to be like. I was challenged in the classroom, surrounded by brilliant and wonderful friends, and was part of a diverse community. Better than Harvard but still under the radar :)

    WashU is everything the ideal university can offer. Everything from food to campus life is amazing. Even though itâ??s not represented like some of the Ivy League colleges, there are some aspects of WashU that no Ivy League college can compete with.

    Washington University in St. Louis has provided me with an education that is above and beyond most other universities. I do have to study at least a week prior to most exams, but the environment is friendly and everyone is willing to help. There is lots to do on the weekends to, my only complaint is the weather!

    The students here are welcoming and very motivated, and the intellectual atmosphere rivals that of an Ivy League School. The campus is gorgeous, the classes available allow for a diverse curriculum, and the food is much better than I expected. Wash U is impressive in every aspect.

    Washington University, called WashU by most of the students, is an incredible academic institution that takes pride in its strong departments across the board and heavy academic rigor, and a student body that values cooperation over competition. The social scene is very open, and WashU has several clubs for sports like soccer and basketball, and more niche clubs like Model United Nations and an Anime and Manga club (both are pretty awesome). Student life is among the best in the country with top ten rankings for both food and dorms, and the campus has beautiful Gothic architecture.

    Overall it's a wonderful place to explore what you truly wish to study and pursue as a degree. The environment balances academics and having fun very well; you never feel the need to choose between the two. Also you can't go wrong at WashU; they are strong in every field of study from Business to Engineering to the Arts.

    The campus is insanely awesome with sweet dorms. The people are super friendly, and the campus is very safe with a police headquarters right near the dorms. Saint Louis is really great and Delmar Blvd. is only a short distance away from the school.
