    Bang for the buck

    No matter what university or college a student is attending, there is always going to be a question about financial. However unlike Webster University, the university is spread out onto military bases and study aboard in Europe and Asia. In other words, it gives students an opportunity to travel and explore other cultures (study abroad) or have another shot of receiving an education while serving the American country.

    Am learning a lot

    As being raised in the military while living overseas since I was ten years old, I was return to the USA right after graduation. Thankfully Webster had a study aboard college in London, UK, which had the only major I was interested in; Film Studies. There are many film companies in the city including the (British Broadcasting Company) BBC Studios and Pinewood Studios. My professors are British but they also had worked for these companies as well. They are very helpful and advise me which pathway is better for me to take for my film career.

    Great for these types of students

    This is definitely a school for the nerds and the geeks. For the people who actually value getting an education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take notes, highlight books, do the homework. Keep notes and graded papers for finals and midterms, they will be helpful for that last week of crunch time.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a pretty expensive school, but it's worth the good education you'd be getting and looks good on resumes. They also have pretty fun activities throughout the year for students..

    Am enjoying being here

    Webster Groves is pretty out the way for me, but once I get there, there's usually some fun activity going on. There are plenty of clubs to join for just about every hobby, and if you can't find one, they're happy to help you make your own.

    Am learning a lot

    The General Requirement for this school is like no other. Instead of the boring English 101 everyone takes, I took Play-writing. The small classes make it much easier to learn and get help on harder subjects.

    Campus Safety

    The city of Webster Groves is an extremely safe area and Webster University has many safety precautions. Campus Security patrols 24/7 and all the parking areas are well lit at night. There are also many blue light safety poles where people can press a button for emergency services.

    Greek Life

    Webster is not strong in the Greek Life category. But, although there is only one sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon is a strong sisterhood of intelligent women who volunteer in and around the community.

    Clubs and Activities

    Webster University has many diverse clubs and activities. From the Quidditch Club to the Student Education Association, Webster has an academic or fun club for every student.

    Great for these types of students

    Webster University is great for artistic, different, intelligent students who enjoy personalized attention and small class size.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Webster has a University Center like many colleges and universities. But unlike other college and universities, Webster has a flag hanging to represent each country that Webster students come from. There are over 50!

    Bang for the buck

    Webster University is worth the price tag. The campus is lovely and accessible, the professors are intelligent and informed and every student graduates with what they need to survive in the real world.

    What to do for fun

    Webster Groves offers many fun places to hangout such as Weber's Front Row or Blackburn Park. Beyond that, St. Louis city offers many venues, restaurants, bars, theaters and other places for college students to enjoy. Webster University itself always has events going on like plays, movie screenings and fake proms. A special highlight of Webster's is the annual Drag Ball.

    Food and Dining

    Marletto's, Blimpie's, Freshens and WOW Chicken all provide many options for students dining on campus. Marletto's supports vegan and vegetarian lifestyles and well as many other kinds of foods. The University Center has three different options for those who want food on the go. Sandwiches, chicken, burgers, pretzels and smoothies are all offered.

    Dorm Life

    Webster University recently built two new dorm buildings. The communities found in the dorms on campus are strong and happy. Students get to know their Resident Assistants well and they're comfortable and happy in the updated rooms.

    Academic Rigor

    Webster's classes, although not as rigorous as other St. Louis Universities, are challenging enough to prepare students for their prospective fields. With such small class sizes, professors can get direct feedback from students on the rigor of the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should plan on getting involved on campus to learn about ll the opportunities that Webster has to offer. Webster can be an amazing place to learn and thrive but only if the student allows himself or herself to grow and thrive.

    In three sentences

    Webster University is a unique college located in a beautiful neighborhood. It's small class sizes make it personal and student oriented. Also, Webster's strong international presence makes the student body diverse and interesting.

    Business, Communications, and International Students

    Get involved. No other way to put it. But also dont overload yourself.

    Bang for the buck

    It could be a bit cheaper but its a private college so its expected.

    Am enjoying being here

    Enjoying your time at Webster is somthing you will have to adjust to. It takes a long while and alot of hard work, but it will all pay off.

    art, communication, film

    Tips for prospective students

    If money is an issue, give yourself plenty of time to figure out how to pay for housing and other expenses.

    Bang for the buck

    Expensive but I think it will be worth it, I personally couldn't afford to live on campus, but their housing looks very nice.

    Will enjoy being here

    Webster has a great looking library right next to the building most of my classes will be in and it's in a good area of St. Louis.

    Will learn a lot

    I looked into basically every school in Missouri for a good film program and this is the only one that interested me.

    Campus Safety

    there's public safety who drive around in their little cars making sure everyone's safe. i've never seen them actually save anyone because webster groves is not dangerous. they just ticket people a lot.

    Greek Life

    there is one sorority, delta phi epsilon. i am in it and those girls are probably the fakest people i have ever met. i do not suggest joining.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are quite a few clubs but none of them seem that exciting. i have gone to a few meetings here and there but none of them seemed that interesting.

    Great for these types of students

    artsy, homosexual, hipster, unathletic

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    there are many homosexual people. i have no problem with that but just a heads up. there's a lot more than any other school.

    Bang for the buck

    webster is very expensive and the only reason i attend is because i have very good financial aid. i do not think it is worth the amount the tuition is.

    What to do for fun

    there are events on campus every once and awhile to go to. athletics are not that exciting compared to other colleges.

    Food and Dining

    marlettos is alright. they serve a lot of the same food all the time. the places in the uc are alright as well. it would be nice if they had more options and later dining hours.

    Dorm Life

    i did not like my first roommate so i did not have a good experience. i did not enjoy living in a dorm. the one thing that was nice was the bathrooms in the suites.

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are not necessarily very hard but you do need to go to class because many professors take attendance and as long as you do the work well you should be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    be open to new and different people or else you will not make many friends. try to get involved as much as you can so you can actually know everyone on campus even though you will know everyone because the campus is so small.

    In three sentences

    it is a very diverse and open school with many different types of people that you may not run into everyday. the class sizes are small and the professors are always very willing to help. social life and athletics on campus is not a priority here.

    Campus Safety

    Very safe campus in a quaint suburb of St. Louis. Very nice are in Webster Groves.

    Greek Life

    Not involved in a fraternity, but there are some.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities, but since I commute I have not gotten involved as much as I should.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who want to experience a diversified culture of people from around the world. Also, this university has many degree offerings.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Webster has many location in and around St. Louis and also around the world. If you want to go to England for instance, you study abroad there. There are many opportunities in many areas for students.

    Bang for the buck

    Webster U. is a prestigious university and rather expensive, but I think the degree you will get from this university will be worth it.

    What to do for fun

    Computer games, martial arts.

    Food and Dining

    There are lots of places on campus and off campus within walking distance.

    Dorm Life

    I commuted so I cannot comment on this, but I have seen the dorms and apartments on campus and they are very nice.

    Academic Rigor

    I would rate it at a 4 out of 5.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are interested in going to a foreign country the study abroad program is the way to go. I went to Beijing, China and went to the university there last semester. It was a great experience I will never forget.

    In three sentences

    I like the educational programs here. They are challenging. I also did the study abroad program last semester. Awesome!!

    Greek Life

    I am not a member of a Greek club but i have some friends that pledge and a couple others that pledge state wide. They seem to love it.

    Clubs and Activities

    Any interest you share there is bound to be a group our club that shares the exact same interest. If not, its also possible for you to start your own. Webster is very student ran so whatever you want, you can make happen.

    Great for these types of students

    Students that enjoy getting involved should enjoy Webster. Also students that are capable of juggling fun time and academic time.

    What to do for fun

    Everything you possibly can do at Webster is fun. We have free food at least once a week for different causes. Dances put on by different groups at Webster, and their is a club for every interest group you can think of.

    Food and Dining

    I don't stay on campus so i would not know every in-and-out of the dining area, but i have eaten in the University Center and they have the best food in the school. Its also a really good bang for your buck. I get full each time i visit.

    Dorm Life

    I do not stay on campus but I've never heard anybody complain about their housing renovations.

    Academic Rigor

    Theirs a free tutor room for any and every subject you might need help in. Its student operated and very easy to get help in.

    Tips for prospective students

    The school bases a lot of its time on making sure their students feel like they belong. For the students that prefer not to explore new things, this might not be the college for you.

    In three sentences

    Webster University is a great college to attend if you enjoy meeting new people and becoming involved. I give it the highest score possible on the scale because i absolute love it. The students are also very friendly and most of the new experiences are free to get into so there is no reason not to get involved.

    Campus Safety

    In my two years at Webster University, I have NEVER felt unsafe. Webster Groves is an extremely safe neighborhood, which makes campus life enjoyable. Our public safety staff is also very friendly and reliable and will always be there to help you in any way possible, as well!

    Greek Life

    We have one sorority on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    Webster offers many clubs and activities and sports! We have clubs ranging from the Video Game Club to the Ecology Club! We also have one sorority. We have volleyball, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, and tennis, as well!

    Great for these types of students

    Webster University is one of the top technical theatre schools in the country, so if you are a theatre student, this is DEFINITELY the school for you. I also find that any art-related students seem to enjoy the atmosphere at Webster University, but we also have an excellent business program and international studies program, as well!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Our mascot is a mythical creature, whose name is based on the street names where the school is located. It is a hybrid of a cheetah, saint bernard, and buffalo. It is pretty fantastic! Every year, we also hold a drag ball, which is one of the most popular drag show events in the st. louis area! It is tons of fun!

    Bang for the buck

    Webster really is not an expensive school, especially for a private university! They also provide very good academic scholarships and work study to all qualifying students!

    What to do for fun

    Webster hosts many events such as free concerts, (I have seen Girl Talk and Reel Big Fish in my two years at Webster!) variety shows, theatrical performances, sporting events, lectures, free food!, random crafty events, poster sales, political and religious meetings, clubs, cultural events and pretty much anything else you can think of!

    Food and Dining

    The only real complaint I have ever had about Webster University is their campus food. I am a vegetarian, and I find it very difficult to find healthy options that suit my diet. They have either Marletto's or the fast food options at the UC. Neither are very good, unfortunately. There are many delicious restaurants near by, however! Everyone has a microwave and fridge on their floor, as well.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms at Webster are really nice! We do not have community bathrooms, which is a plus. I have lived in both West Hall and East Hall, and I loved both. The East Hall Single Style dorms are particularly nice, especially if you require a lot of private work and study time. I will be a Webster Village Apartments resident this upcoming school year, which means I will now have a private room and bathroom, and a living room and kitchen shared with a roommate of my choice! I cannot wait!

    Academic Rigor

    As a student of the Conservatory of Theatre Arts, I can only speak on behalf of our academic expectations. We work 24/7 and then some! Webster University is definitely not a school for slackers. Your teachers are always willing to help you, as long as you are always willing to put in the effort!

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early for the best chance at scholarships offered! Also, the earlier you apply for housing, the more likely you will be to get the housing that you like the best. Our housing options are somewhat limited, so the earlier you can apply, the better!

    In three sentences

    Webster University is a home for all of the unique individuals trying to find their way in the world. I am a dedicated and passionate Conservatory student there, and I could not have found a better theatre program. If you are a passionate theatre student or a student of any type, Webster University will be the perfect fit for you!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Webster is a very diverse & liberal school, so you never know what you are going to see here. One crazy tradition that this school does is a campus wide game called Humans vs. Zombies. It's like a big game of tag.

    What to do for fun

    There are many events that go on in the University Center from different clubs and organizations. This school also has a lot of free movies that are shown in the theatre in Webster Hall.

    Food and Dining

    There are many places to eat around campus, but the main two spots are the UC (University Center) and Marletto's. The food is very good, I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

    Dorm Life

    I am a commuter due to financial reasons, but on behalf of my friends who stay in the dorms, they love it. People are nice and the RA's are very responsible. It's very habitable.

    Academic Rigor

    Webster University is an academic school. They have sports, clubs, and other cool things, but this school is mainly focused on learning.

    Tips for prospective students

    Remember to stay focused on why you are in college. Don't get caught up in parties, clubs, and other fun things and forget to do your work. Work now, fun later.

    In three sentences

    Webster is an outstanding school. The learning environment is perfect. It is one of the most diverse places I've ever been to.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is in a small, safe community well outside St. Louis city limits, and Campus Safety personel are always visible on campus and easy to reach. The school also has alerts in place that not only notify students on weather alerts and campus closings, but also updates about any safety issue on campus or in the neighborhood.

    Greek Life

    There were no Greek organizations until halfway through my time there, now I believe there is one sorority and one fraternity. They exist, but are not an entrenched part of campus life.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities, but I must admit I did not take part in many. However, there are enough options to find a good fit for almost any student, and the small nature of the school makes creating intimate connections and truly unique settings east.

    Great for these types of students

    Any student interested in Liberal Arts, Fine Arts, or technological pursuits. A student who likes the feel of small towns and appreciates a small idyllic and unique campus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Several departments on campus are housed in historic mansions that have been a part of Webster Groves for over a hundred years. English, Philosophy, History, and Music classes are some of the classes held in these houses. The history Webster Hall and facing Eden Theological Seminary is a treat for anyone who loves old, beautiful buildings.

    Bang for the buck

    As a Private University the sticker price is high, but I received well over half of my tuition in scholarships and grants. I received an amazing education and got to study abroad for a year in a country I never would have visited otherwise. In short, it was well worth it, and to put a point on it I graduated with 17,000 in loans, most of which I could have avoided had I been more personally diligent about my paperwork.

    What to do for fun

    St. Louis is only a hop and a skip away, with a wonderful Art Museum, free Zoo, Forest Park, City Museum, and Fox Theatre. The Lorretto-Hilton on campus has shows and students get in to Conservatory Productions (which are very good!) for free. There is a film series, several campus sports organizations, and plenty of clubs to join.

    Food and Dining

    It's what I feel can be expected from a school this size. There are several options for meal plans, some more affordable and applicable than others, and the dining options are all tasty with nothing extravagant. Suffice to say you can access both healthy and delicious food and coffee at any time a restaurant would be open.

    Dorm Life

    As the campus is small, dorm life is close-knit. There isn't a lot of space for student housing, but I never had a problem finding lodgings, and the surrounding neighborhoods are nice with ample apartment options.

    Academic Rigor

    Students are expected to do well, and as I received a scholarship from the school that held a high GPA requirement, I certainly never let my grades drop. However, there are plenty of resources students can access if they need extra help in any subject area.

    Tips for prospective students

    Webster University excels in the Liberal and Creative Arts fields. They also have an excellent and accesible study abroad program. Don't be afraid to explore the options Webster can provide you!

    In three sentences

    Webster University was an amazing opportunity to get a well-rounded liberal arts degree that allowed me to pursue my passion and never be bored in gen-ed classes. I took them, but the options were interesting and often pertained to my fields of interest. I couldn't have asked for better or more interesting and kind professors.

    What to do for fun

    Webster has a lot of groups and organizations. Webster offers many sports one expects like basketball and volleyball, and ones a person doesn't like a kickball class. If you take time to get involved you will find plenty to do.

    Food and Dining

    Webster University has some well cooked food. I do wish there were more choices on campus.

    Dorm Life

    Webster University has some really nice dorms. I have personally looked at other colleges before I decided on Webster such as Morehouse and UT Knox, and honestly compared to them Webster's dorms are really nice and spacious.

    Academic Rigor

    Webster University academics are very challenging and really require you to use critical thinking. No matter what major you pursue you will be pushed to achieve your best.

    Tips for prospective students

    I have a few tips for prospective students. One tip I have is for all prospective students to take advantage of financial aid. Webster offers a considerable amount of financial aid and people there want you to stay in school. Another tip is to be invovled and don't be afraid to open up. You will surprised and delighted to discover all the neat things you can do. My last tip is don't be afraid to be yourself. Webster is very open and understandable to all sorts people. They really want to come as you are

    In three sentences

    I rate Webster University on their student life, academics, safety, clubs, organizations, and food. Webster University is a small, but very rewarding University. The small setting and caring teachers really make it a wonderful experience.

    None. Would be nice if more clubs and activities were offered besides the Honor Society where a high GPA is required. Not everyone can be apart of the organization.

    Academic Rigor

    The work is not hard for most of the classes but you do have a lot of reading and homework to get done. Most professors give you a generous amount of time to get the work done.

    Tips for prospective students

    You will greatly enjoy the classroom time and find that all of the professors are in your corner to help you succeed.

    Campus Safety

    Webster is an extremely safe area with help boxes to push if in trouble and campus safety roaming the campus, only a phone call away.

    Greek Life

    There is only one sorority and Greek houses aren't allowed.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are 70 different student organizations at Webster. From major-centered like Students for Biological Sciences to activity-centered clubs, like Video Game Club. There is something for everyone. Right now I'm extremely involved with WSES, or Webster Students for Environmental Sustainability, which leads our campus in the green movements, pushing for cleaner energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable solutions. There are support groups, like the LGBTQ alliance, and the Latin American Student Organization.

    Great for these types of students

    Webster is the school for anyone interested in the small school experience, who wants to study abroad, and actually become a part of the campus community. Creativity and eccentricity are praised and desired in Webster students. The campus has one of the largest LGBTQ populations and support for these students. Our conservatory theater is rated second best in the U.S. so theater students and students who enjoy theater are welcome.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Definitely the game of HvZ, or Humans versus Zombies is an unusual tradition on campus. Basically, everyone signs up online to the program and at the first meeting, we receive our bandanas. Almost everyone in the game starts off as a human, with their bandanas tied around their arms. The one person who doesn't have a bandana tied around the arm is the Oz, or original zombie. If this person tags a human, the human turns into a zombie and must put her bandana on her head, to signify this. The zombie who tags the human takes their card and logs them into the HvZ database so that it becomes official. The more people become zombies, the more intense the game gets and the only way to fend off a zombie is to hit it with a Nerf gun dart or throw clean socks. So, this becomes a spectacle for the University because people are diving into bushes, Nerf guns are being fired, people are running to safe areas. It goes on for a week and it's definitely the most fun and ridiculous event Webster

    Bang for the buck

    Webster is a global school, meaning we have campuses on several continents. Currently we just acquired a campus in Ghana. The best thing about our study abroad program is that tuition is basically the same and students receive a free plane ticket whether it be for Argentina or Thailand.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something to do from the campus-wide, weeklong game of Humans Versus Zombies to the Harry Potter themed Yule Ball. You know we're a liberal arts college when we have Quidditch instead of football.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options at Webster, even vegetarian. Sometimes Marletto's can get old because I live on campus, but they do offer worldly foods. One day could be falafels, another could be curry, and the next Chinese. There is always soup and pizza. With that we have breakfast in the morning where waffles, pancakes, omelets, french toast, hash browns, and yogurt are available. At our University Center, Webster offers Wow Wingerey, Freshens smoothies, and Blimpie sandwiches. I don't go there as much because I prefer the surprises Marletto's offers. Besides those places though, there are sushi and coffee stands in various locations, along with a coffee shop in the library.

    Dorm Life

    I've made my best friends at school from living in the dorms. The RA's really try to foster a bond among students. Sometimes it can get noisy and difficult to be around friends all the time, especially when trying to study. It's definitely an adjustment, but there are plenty of places to study, like the study rooms at the end of every hall, the lounges on every floor, or the library a two-minute walk away.

    Academic Rigor

    Webster is challenging but the professors present these challenges well so I want to take them on. Finals aren't necessarily tests but projects, presentations, or speech so we have to take what we learn in the class and actually use it, instead of cramming for an exam and throwing our knowledge away.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to get to know your professors because they will be invaluable resources when trying to find jobs or if you just need advice. Take advantage of the fact you're in a small school. Get involved so you can find your passion and what you want to do with the rest of your life. If you can, live on campus because it helps you focus more on school and become more involved. Don't miss classes even though you're in college. Webster is small and the professor will notice and wonder why you're not in class. Just remember, though, it's only because they care. Also, get a work study job because If ever I need someone to talk to, I have dozens of professors and peers who care about me in my work study. Without a doubt Webster has the best professors and the best students.

    In three sentences

    I've never comfortable in school settings until I started at Webster. The professors are the most supportive teachers I've ever met. Attending Webster makes me feel like I'm a part of this bigger family away from home. When I started my works-study at the English and Philosophy department, which is in an old mansion, I instantly became a member of their community.

    What to do for fun

    Webster University has many clubs. Clubs are great for interacting with new people and just having fun. They are great for getting away from all the school work. We also have a gym, weight lifting room (free of charge), and pool for athletic purposes. We open the pool certain times for free swimming as well.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is delightful. You have a choice of three great places. Our Marletto's Cafe is our #1 restaurant on campus. They cook right in front of you and serve you food that has been made from scratch along. This restaurant goes as a buffet as well, so it is all you can eat. Our World Of Wings (WOW) restaurant is all about the wings. They also serve other great foods such as: Hamburgers, Grilled Cheese, Chicken Tenders, and much more. We also have our Kaldi's Coffee Internet Cafe. The coffee there is phenomenal. It's something great to wake you up for class. And what a great place for watching your favorite youtube videos while drinking some of their original hot teas along with the delightful pastries.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms and apartments are great here. In each dorm hall there is 8 different study rooms with ethernet cord outlets and regular outlets for your laptop. The dormitory here is very nice. It's very clean and new. The dorms get cleaned daily. There is a laundry room on the first room free of charge for all your clothes. Our RA's are in charge of making sure that everyone is satisfied with their rooms and roommates. We have a schedule for when everyone needs to be quiet and for when you can be louder than normal.

    Academic Rigor

    Our professors have not been professors their whole life. Webster University hires professors who actually made it to the top of their previous career, in which they are teaching you now. My Film Professor is actually a TV Show Producer. My Intro to Media Writing Professor actually interviewed Jon Stewart. They know exactly what they are talking about. With all of their personal experience, they will teach you everything they know. Webster University's Academic Status is Superior to most Universities in the world.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are coming to Webster University plan on being greeted into an entire community of enthusiastic students. Webster is known for our diversity. Many people from all over the world come to Webster, because we invite them in and accept them for who they are. We do not have huge lecture halls like you see in the movies, which makes it easier because your with a small group of people which makes it easy for you to learn and focus. We have small rooms which makes it easier for the professor to make sure everyone is understanding each concept. Webster University really shows you how to apply each and everything to real life, which is good, because that is how it is in the real world. The professors are not as strict as you may think. They make it fun in so many different ways.

    In three sentences

    Webster University is a great place for learning to things and networking with outstanding people. Webster University Professors make it fun by teaching hands-on for each subject of learning. People here are really friendly, which makes it easier to make friends and work with others on school work.

    What to do for fun

    A lot of planned events happen on the weekends. The students at Webster love to schedule events for the whole campus to be apart of. There are free movies that show in the auditorium, most of which are sneak peeks at movies that haven't even shown in theatres yet! I saw Argo on campus about a week before it premiered in theatres. Pizza parties/karaoke/game nights are usual happenings on campus. There's always something to do!

    Food and Dining

    Webster's Dining options are very diverse! There is something for everyone, whether you're vegan, vegetarian, whatever! The only negative for me was that they don't serve good seafood very often, which is a food that I really love. There are other dining resources on campus other than the main dining hall as well, whether it be a sandwich shop, a fast food grill, or a smoothie place!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is an awesome way to make lifetime friends. Residential Assistants are so helpful when you need anything, and there are plenty of events scheduled for each floor to be apart of. Each floor has its own theme each semester, and the quiet hours are very convenient.

    Academic Rigor

    Webster is well-regarded for their academic accomplishments. I am only rating it with four stars, because I am a conservatory student and I don't take academic classes at Webster. However, many students give it's academic success lots of praise!

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Ask for help! There is no way to get the right answers, or any answers at all, if you don't ask for help! Every professor/faculty member I've ever spoken to here is always willing to answer any questions. 2. Take a tour of not only the campus, but the surrounding area. It's such a beautiful place to study a craft that you love. There are so many unique pieces of St. Louis, and ready to be seen! 3. Be open-minded. This is a Liberal Arts school, and creativity and self-expression is bursting at the seams of this campus. Be ready and willing to meet many new people, and explore the diversity.

    In three sentences

    Webster University is the perfect place for a dedicated, interesting, and creative student. The campus is very quaint and town-like; perfect for inspiring creativity and focus. There are plenty of academic resources to be taken advantage of, and the faculty is truly there to help you!

    Campus Safety

    Many students are annoyed by how strict and stringent Webster's Public Safety is but, they do a fairly good job of providing effective campus safety. From what I hear, they also love writing parking tickets so pay attention to the parking booklet for guidelines on what to do and what not to do.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a multitude of clubs and activities to participate in on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Webster is one of the more pricey schools in the St. Louis area. However, ultimately the education, the students and faculty you meet, and the experiences are worth it.

    Campus Safety

    Campus Safety is really important here. There are emergency kiosks scattered all about on campus. Public Safety and Health CAre Services are the top dogs of campus safety: they really care about your safety and your health, and they are willing to stop anything that they're doing to assist you. From my personal experience, I once had an accident resulting in a concussion. I was immediately checked out when I called Public Safety, they arrived at the scene in less than 10 minutes. Unfortunately, Health Services is closed on weekends, but they e-mailed me and asked me to call them to let them know that I was okay! These professionals are really passionate about their jobs and they take all matters seriously.

    Greek Life

    There isn't much Greek Life here, especially for men, but the sorority here is really awesome. You will always see sorority members getting really involved and giving back to the community. They also host a lot of events and those events are always open to everyone!

    You get exactly what you pay for. Activities, supplies, and whatever else you may need to pay for are very inexpensive, especially if you are a student! Students get special discounts and free stuff all the time!

    What to do for fun

    There are always carnivals and multicultural events going on campus. There are intramurals for people who just enjoy playing sports for fun, different clubs spanning a multitude of different interests, concerts, play, and films all on campus. You don't have to go very far for entertainment if you don't want to. The best thing about most of these things is that they are FREE for students.

    Food and Dining

    Food here is always great, and there is a wide variety of places you can go to eat. If you have a meal plan, you won't have to pay anything to eat on campus! There are also a lot of restaurants that are walking distances away, so you always have a choice.

    The dorms are fairly large and there's enough space for a bed, a desk, and a dresser. There's plenty of room for you to decorate or bring items like televisions, refrigerators, and your favorite gaming systems!

    All of the courses here are built to enrich the mind. The instructors will make sure you fully understand the course, so that you can learn as much as possible.

    Campus Safety

    VERY safe campus. Well protected, and lots of safe students.

    Greek Life

    There is only one sorority, but it is a group of very nice girls.

    Clubs and Activities

    Plenty of different types of clubs. Some are very large, and some are very small. The school is always open to the starting of new clubs or activities.

    Great for these types of students

    Democratic, Small-town oriented, have not explored much of the US, not big partiers, Non-St. Louisans, musicians, actors (great conservatory), of any ethnicity

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None that I can think of. There is an odd mascot: the Gorlock. That is basically the one unusual thing that is acknowledged.

    Bang for the buck

    I have truthfully not much enjoyed my time at Webster. I have many friends who absolutely love it, but there are also many who can say quite the opposite. Those who are from out of town like it a lot. Those of us who are commuters don't find much excitement in the school. This is a great school for liberal students from a small town, or great actors or musicians.

    What to do for fun

    There are on-campus clubs and sports games to attend.

    Food and Dining

    The food offered on campus is pretty good. The campus diner/buffet serves both (somewhat) healthy and other types of food, and it is very tasty. There are also other restaurants on campus that offer a good selection. If you are a vegetarian or a big salad eater, you may not find the food you are interested in.

    Dorm Life

    I am a commuter, so I can't answer this with a fully intelligent opinion. What I can say is that those who live in the dorms seem to enjoy it very much, especially as freshmen. The RAs on campus make dorm life a great time. There are never any dorm-parties, or things like that. Seems to be a very clean campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers tend to be very easy going. Those in the foreign language department are wonderful teachers, and very well organized. All teachers tend to be very different from one another. I have had some in whose classes I learned important information that I will never forget, but I have had some that felt like a complete waste of time; I barely learned anything.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have grown up in a small town, this would be a great school for you. There are not many on-campus activities, but those that are offered are enjoyable. If you are looking for new exciting adventures, aside from studying abroad- this may not be the school you're looking for.

    In three sentences

    This school seems to be more appealing to students who have lived outside of the St. Louis area for most of their lives; Webster Groves is a great place to live. Most teachers and classes are great, but many in the media department aren't challenging enough. It is a very liberal college; those who live on campus are usually very involved, but commuters tend to have a difficult time.

    Campus Safety

    Public safety is always out and about. Webster Groves has been crime free for years. People walk around late at night alone, leave their cars unlocked, and never feel worried.

    Greek Life

    There are a few sororities but no fraternities.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who love small schools and hipsters. The athletic programs are good and the games are always fun to attend.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The St. Louis Opera theater is located on campus.

    What to do for fun

    Many parks and restaurants are nearby. Downtown St. Louis is only ten minutes away. Anything you could want to do in or around St. Louis county is within a fifteen minute drive.

    Food and Dining

    Good food but there are not many dining halls. However, Webster hires catering companies often to give free meals to anyone on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I didn't stay in dorms.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved quickly. There are not too many students, so you will meet many people and actually remember their names.

    In three sentences

    Webster is a very close-knit school in a friendly community. The class sizes are small, and beneficial. There are also many great opportunities for research and internships.

    Campus Safety

    Public safety is always available and helpful. The campus is also becoming more and more safe with emergency pols and so on. They just get a little to excited about giving out tickets... Wish they would check the licence plates more accurate.

    Greek Life

    If you want Greek Life, Webster is probably not your school... Only one Sisterhood on campus. Sorry.

    Clubs and Activities

    Huge variety with lots of opportunities. You are able to be a part of whatever you like, and if they happen to not have the club you want to join? Go ahead and start it! Pro-Staff will support you with all the information you need.

    Great for these types of students

    People who want to meet others. Students who do not just want to be one out of many, but actually know their professors by name and vice versa. People who are openminded and ready to meet diversity in person.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The quad. A big green area in the middle of the campus. Sometimes it holds poster sales, or students will play soccer or ultimate Frisbee. Or they will just hang around with one or another. It is a great place to study, socialise and lots more. A little peaceful place in a stressful college career.

    Bang for the buck

    With the right scholarships it is doable, but the financial department could be better in helping you find the resources you need.

    What to do for fun

    Join clubs, go to events, be a part of the Webster family and it will never be boring.

    Food and Dining

    The chefs are amazing, they are funny, nice and make you feel right at home. The food variety and quality could be better, but then the chefs will do whatever they can to make you not go home hungry.

    Dorm Life

    Great staff, and best opportunity to meet great people. Quality of furniture and facility could be better for the price you pay.

    Academic Rigor

    If you work hard you will be rewarded. Don't be lazy, but also don't be afraid to ask for help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be openminded, and get involved. Try as many things as you can, and find yourself. Webster provides you with so much more than just the opportunity to earn a degree.

    In three sentences

    Incredible people and opportunities. Incredible support from staff, faculty and students. Webster is not a school, its a home.

    Campus Safety

    We have Public Safety patrolling 24/7. When something happens on or near campus, students can opt into a text message/email system that will alert students of crimes and school closings. Webster also offers an Escort Service for students who do not feel comfortable walking to and from cars, classes, or dorms.

    Greek Life

    We do not have Greek Houses, but we do have a tiny Greek Life. Our Fraternity and Sorority are more academic based, so don't come expecting to party.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a wide variety of clubs on campus from Improv to Forensics and Debate. If there is a club you want to start, the process is quite simple to file a request, too.

    Great for these types of students

    We have a wide variety of students from people who went to school in Webster Groves to international students from all around the world.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Quads are really nice places to hang out in nice weather. If you want to get homework done, though, the best places are the 3rd and 4th levels of the Library and Pearson House (English and Philosophy department building).

    Bang for the buck

    Although the school is expensive, I cannot think of anywhere else I would have wanted to go. I had enough financial aid to cover all four years of college here and I feel like I learned quite a bit that I might not have know before.

    What to do for fun

    Webster Groves has a lot of parks close to campus. Downtown St. Louis and Forest Park are only a 10 minute drive tops from campus. Every year, we have at least one Humans Versus Zombies Game, too!

    Food and Dining

    There is a limited amount of cafeterias on campus, but Webster is in between two shopping districts in Webster Groves that are easy walking distance for food ranging from Thai to Subway.

    Dorm Life

    I did not live on campus, but from what I have seen, the dorms and apartments are really nice. The dorms have options to have two to a room and three to four bedrooms in a suite, while the apartment choices ranges from a single efficiency to a four bedroom apartment.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors here will push you, so be prepared to work! The English department is very reading intensive, so you might not want to bulk up on those classes in one semester, but you will learn (and cover) a lot in these courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't worry about what you want to do! You can dabble for a semester or two in nearly every department so you can find your perfect match.

    In three sentences

    Webster is a great choice for someone interested in the Arts and Sciences and Fine Arts. Be expected to receive a very liberal arts education here, because they will expect you to dabble in many different departments in order to earn your degree. If you work hard enough in high school, they might even give you a decent Academic Scholarship!

    We have an annual Drag ball.

    Bang for the buck

    To be honest, in some aspects, Webster is an expensive school, but you definitely receive more than what you pay for. The staff and workers are all dedicated to their jobs and students' voices are heard and enact change. Not to mention, it's almost impossible to walk down the street and not meet someone you know or someone who will smile and say, hi.

    What to do for fun

    There's quite a few bowling places near by. You can hop on the metro to go downtown. The Loop is only 20 minutes away by car and there are plenty of productions on campus to attend.

    Food and Dining

    There are various options on campus for dining and plenty of small restaurants and eateries within walking distance of Webster.

    Dorm Life

    The residence halls and apartments are well maintained and comfortable.

    Academic Rigor

    Every teacher is dedicated to his/her concentration and they want students to succeed. The school has high, but completely attainable, expectations that encourage students in their success.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to really pay attention to financial aid information. Also, become involved on campus because there are numerous activities, organizations and clubs to join. There are many events that are free or at a reduced student price, such as the plays performed by the Conservatory.

    In three sentences

    It is an educational institution dedicated to creating global citizens who are compassionate and educated in the means to enact positive change within the world. The campus is warm and welcoming, and the staff are friendly and willing to always help. Webster University is definitely a one-of-a-kind learning environment.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe. I think two girls have been accosted in the last three years but those reports are skeptical. Me nor my friends have ever felt threatened in quaint Webster Groves.

    Greek Life

    Non-existent.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are surprisingly a lot of clubs and activities available for students but primarily only the on-campus residents go to them. The school also supports new clubs and awards them a budget if enough students sign a petition saying they will attend the club or activity.

    Great for these types of students

    Shy and thoughtful students, students who want to intimately meet friends, and students interested in studying abroad.

    Bang for the buck

    Webster is expensive in my opinion for what little services are offered. Every year they also seem to be cutting budgets and upping tuition.

    What to do for fun

    Go to the library, the Delmar Loop, downtown St. Louis or make friends! There is a lot to do if you know what to look for. Connect with upperclassmen for this.

    Food and Dining

    On-campus dining is lacking and is only offered for a few hours on the weekend which makes the meal plan impossible to live off of. There are very few options for vegetarians and practically none for vegans unless they want to live off of soup.

    Dorm Life

    My dorm experience was phenomenal if only for the other students. It is co-ed which is awesome because it allows students to get to know everyone. Other than that the dorms are expensive.

    Academic Rigor

    The upper classes can be particularly rigorous, especially for Art, Biology, and Sociology/ Anthropology majors. Other subjects in my experience are covered very basically and by large ignore discussions.

    Tips for prospective students

    Beware of financial aid! Ask around and frequently you will hear complaints about financial aid either messing up or randomly changing your award letter. Live on campus for your first year as it will greatly benefit you in socializing and gaining the full experience.

    In three sentences

    Webster has amazing opportunities to study abroad and offers a waiver for every student's first time studying abroad. The students and faculty are remarkable in general, but the administration's competency is questionable. It is perfectly small for intimate classes which enables students to intimately know their professors and classmates.

    Campus Safety

    I don't think there's ever been a time I've felt unsafe on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Theatre majors, music majors

    Bang for the buck

    The education you get here, especially at the Conservatory, is definitely worth the money. They give out a lot of financial aid, and there are a lot of work-study and budget jobs (work-study for those awarded it, and budget for those who were not).

    What to do for fun

    To be honest, there's not a whole lot to do in Webster Groves unless you have a car. Residential Housing Association does put on a lot of events, and one Friday every month they have an excursion, which is an off-campus event that they provide transportation for.

    Food and Dining

    The main dining hall, Marletto's, isn't the best food I've ever had, but it's for the most part manageable. The other dining options on campus, like the café in the library and the store in the East Academic Building, are much better, and the coffee is pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus is actually not that bad. The dorms are suite-style, so you have your own bathroom that you share with your roommate and two other people. The only thing that's really irritating are the thin walls (you can hear EVERYTHING) and sharing the kitchenette that is on your floor, especially if your floor-mates don't do their dishes.

    Academic Rigor

    As with all colleges, there are some classes and teachers you want to avoid. I've been able to find interest in all of my classes so far, and the teachers are willing to help you succeed even if it means coming in outside of their office hours.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're planning on auditioning for the Conservatory (in other words, if you're a theatre or dance major) don't hesitate to get in contact with the faculty before your audition. They make the process easy, and the more you communicate with them the more likely they'll remember you.

    In three sentences

    Webster has a friendly, welcoming environment that puts students and prospective students at ease. Specifically the Conservatory of Theatre Arts works to make sure students get the education and experience they need to work in a competitive environment.

    I think it's actually pretty expensive, considering that there's not much here on campus to be paying for. I mean there should be more to the campus I think, but that's another story.

    What to do for fun

    It's Saint Louis, there's not that much to do for fun unless you're not from here. There's always something to do though, so if you go looking you can't stay bored for long.

    Food and Dining

    The food was good at first...But then you'll get tired of it. The good thing is, you can use your meal plan points at the surrounding restaurants near campus.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life here is pretty OK. Each floor is like a family of their own, but you're always welcome to go from floor to floor and talk with people and make new friends.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics here at Webster are great! I've had some pretty interesting professors, and most all of them have experience in what they teach, and some still work in that field.

    Campus Safety

    I've never felt safer on a campus. I've been to St. Louis Community College, and University of Missouri St. Louis and out of all three campuses, I feel safest on Webster University for sure. It's in an amazing, festive, and polite neighborhood.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have clubs to fit with anyones interests. Even Zombies vs. Humans club that has gatherings on campus and people pick teams, bring nerf guns and dress up sometimes and the battles last for days. Its great. Even if you aren't playing, you feel like your involved. The seminars, conferences, and job expos are amazingly helpful for networking and future job opportunities.

    Great for these types of students

    Webster University is great for students that are interested in broadening their horizons and like being in a liberal surrounding. It has a huge video, audio, and film production presence. The art and theater school also carry a heavy presence. The campus feels very festive and in high spirits.

    Bang for the buck

    The resources that you have access to are amazing. They provide many online services for free through the library. The teachers are extremely qualified and have lots of real world experience and really know their stuff. They are always willing to go out of their way to help you as long as you are willing to put in the effort and show them your dedication. Their internship program also helps hook you up with great skill building experiences along with possible careers. The entire staff is really helpful and polite and there is help everywhere you look. They also give a lot of grants and scholarships on a first come first serve basis so make sure you get your FAFSA filled out by the deadline.

    What to do for fun

    Webster Groves is a great neighborhood with lots of neat restaurants and shops. The cafes in the area also have live music nights. The loop, St. Louis Galleria, and CWE are also great areas to visit while living on campus. The library also has a wide variety of video games, video and music to check out along with a vast online resource list.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved on campus because the events provide great networking opportunities. Get to know your professors because they can vouch for your skills in the future and you can use them as references when applying to jobs. Use social media to your benefit. Behance, Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Youtube, and so many more can help keep you connected and you may get access to possible job opportunities. Join organizations. They are great for networking and creating possible job opportunities down the road.

    Webster University has provided me with the skills I need to move forward with my professional career.

    Public safety is everywhere! Since campus is small, they can quickly respond if a situation were to occur.

    Great for these types of students

    Those who prefer a smaller, more personal campus.

    Bang for the buck

    I can say I could probably get the same Music education elsewhere for less $. However, since this is a private school, the smaller classes allow for more 1-on-1 treatment.

    What to do for fun

    Again, since I do not live on campus, I do not socialize very much. The most I do for fun, being a music student, is using the practice rooms to play piano. Although, there is much more to do on campus and off if you have the time and desire to socialize.

    Food and Dining

    I personally enjoy the Blimpie subs they have on campus. I also like the WOW Chicken! These are both located in the University Center. However, the UC can be a bit pricey and is closed on weekends.

    Dorm Life

    I commute to school. However, I have spent many hours in the dorms and know a few who people who live in them. Overall, they are quite suitable!

    Academic Rigor

    I have found most of my classes to be quite informative and intellectually challenging!

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't commute! I know you can save quite a pretty penny living at home. However, the ability to connect with students extremely important in the music department. Also, apply for scholarships! Most students are able to find some form of aid.

    In three sentences

    Webster is a very immersing experience. I am in the music department and was able to dive in head-first! As a commuter, I will say it is difficult to connect in the ways that I feel I should.

    Campus Safety

    In a very safe neighborhood of Saint Louis. Not being a huge party school, it makes the campus a very safe and inviting atmosphere.

    Greek Life

    Not the biggest school for sororities or frats but the have a few service and academic fraternities open for both males and females.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have many clubs geared towards students' particular fields. They offer lots of professional development activities, which always helps after graduation.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for artsy students, Webster is a pretty liberal college. There are a few campus bands that play around the St. Louis area, and currently some of our alumni students have their painted cats and dogs around St. Louis shops.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Once a year students are typically given a day off solely for service. Many of the campus clubs will have a service project on this day. It's a great way of getting out of class and doing something good for someone else.

    Bang for the buck

    Yes, for sure! Teachers are very invested in their students and in their studies. It's amazing!

    What to do for fun

    You're in St. Louis, which has lots of great music venues. Also downtown Webster is full of fun little places to have dinner. The Campus offers fun activities like movies, and poker nights pretty frequently.

    Food and Dining

    The library coffee is pretty good. I always use it as a treat when having a study session. The dinning hall can get very cramped at lunch time, but that's expected.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus can be expensive but it can be worth it; it allows students to make new friends, and feel more connected to the school. There are a lot of commuters at Webster, but if you're a typical college student living on campus would be fun, and helpful. The library is open late during finals, and midterms which is very nice.

    Academic Rigor

    This really depends on the instructor and course level. The school as a whole expects what most colleges do; assignments to be turned in on time, students to be prepared by class to discuss relevant topics, and a willingness to learn about the material. I would suggest planning 3 hours a week for each class in homework.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're thinking about going to community college first to save money, just come straight to Webster. The whole process will be easier if you start here, and graduate here. Your advisor will help you layout your college plan within your first year of school. No big surprises at this college, which is very comforting.

    In three sentences

    I've had previous experiences at other schools (not so good), and Webster University is the most helpful with their students. Teachers and staff genuinely care about how their students perform. I have enjoyed each semester at this school and look forward to graduating from here.

    Campus Safety

    I've never had an issue with safety on campus. I feel really safe just walking about freely on my own, in the day or at night. It is extremely rare for notices to be sent out warning about safety issues, because there hardly are any.

    Clubs and Activities

    Campus Activities has lots of things planned throughout the year that are really fun and helpful for you to meet new, exciting people. There are clubs for basically any interest you might have. And if per chance a club you're looking for does not exist, then it is pretty simple for you to create it, as long as you have enough support from fellow students. All of the clubs are very friendly and inviting. There's so much to do on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Webster is great for artsy, fun students. There is a great conservatory for the theatrically-minded, as well as great programs for all other students. In general it is really creative atmosphere that sparks growth and development as individuals, as well as students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Webster partakes in Humans Versus Zombies each year, which gets participation campus-wide. Another really big event during the year is the Drag Ball. Webster is a really, really fun campus.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many activities to attend and clubs to go to, it is rarely boring on campus. Campus Activities plans events off-campus as well, so you really can't go wrong. There are several plays and musicals throughout the year put on by Webster students, as well as musical performances both by professional performers and Webster students. Most all of the performances on campus are free for students with IDs, and if not, there are student discounts to help you get the best experience possible going to Webster University.

    Food and Dining

    The campus cafeteria has a wide variety of food, and is ready for vegetarians as well as those without food restrictions. Diverse specials are always announced on the doors, and are always worth a try. There are a couple of other on-campus food options, all of which are very good. Several of my friends ate pretty much at only one of the food places on campus all year, every day, because the food was just that good.

    Dorm Life

    I've never lived in the dorms, but I've spent a lot of time there regardless because of friends who live on campus. The dorms are nice and comfortable. If there are any problems, or you need help with moving anything, the RA's are extremely nice and fun, and work orders are easy to place to help with bigger room maintenance jobs.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your skill level, Webster will challenge you more or less. I've found my classes comfortably challenging. I have to work hard, and it pays off in the end in my grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would highly suggest looking into Webster's wide variety of clubs and activities beforehand, so that way you have a better idea of what to look into come Involvement Week. There is so much to see, it's better to figure out beforehand what you want to see in particular so to better budget your time. Also, don't be afraid to go out of your comfort zone. Go out; meet people. There's no better way to experience Webster than to just dive right in and see what's going on.

    In three sentences

    Webster is an amazing school that makes me feel at home and welcome. It's introduced me to all sorts of new ideas and beliefs. Webster is very diverse and open-minded; everyone can find their home at Webster.

    Crime is very low

    Greek Life

    There's only one sorority, so you don't have to deal with the jerks in a fraternity or Sorority.

    Clubs and Activities

    They are really big on student clubs and activities. Plus, there's always food at every event.

    Great for these types of students

    Art, photography, audio production, film, graphic design, dance, music, theater. Well, anything having to do with the arts really. And business.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Webster Works Worldwide is something they do every year. For one day the school is shut down and students are encouraged to volunteer in the community.

    Bang for the buck

    I'd recommend this school for anyone going into an art or business field

    What to do for fun

    Walk to downtown Webster Groves or go out to a night on the town at the loop. But, there's always something to do on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus. Actually, 75% of Webster students commute. So, my stars Here don't reflect how it actually is. I hear that they at nice, but I've never actually been in one.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get as many scholarships and grants as possible.

    In three sentences

    It's challenging, but a good challenge. Everyone is friendly. And the campus is beautiful

    There is one sorority on campus, which I am a part of and love.

    What to do for fun

    Webster is close enough to all the things to do in St. Louis.

    Food and Dining

    There are two on campus dining places, one with stations that stay the same and a station that rotates every day, and a smaller place with three different restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    The only problem I have encountered with campus life is that I live in a single room suite (which is great), but it costs more a month than the on campus apartments which have living spaces and kitchens which doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    Academic Rigor

    I started on my major classes here, so I don't know about those, but the major classes are definitely rigorous.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get your housing application in WAY early. Housing is extremely limited.

    In three sentences

    Webster is a great arts and business school. There are a lot of opportunities and diversity on campus. Webster is an awesome school overall.

    Campus Safety

    I feel super safe all the time. The campus is small so I don't have to walk far, and there are emergency call boxes at convenient places. Public safety is always willing to walk you to your dorm or car if you feel unsafe.

    Greek Life

    There is one sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm in 5 totally unique and different clubs. It's really great!

    Great for these types of students

    artsy, nerdy, international, minority, LGBTQA. Really anybody can be at home here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There's a Yule Ball every December, held by Webster Quidditch. As far as locations OF campuses, we have several international campuses in Europe, Asia, and Africa!

    Bang for the buck

    If you get scholarships, it's worth it! Paying 30k straight up? Is anything worth that?

    What to do for fun

    Join clubs! We have a sorority, an anime club, SGA, a Quidditch team/harry potter club, and tons of other student led organizations. You might also try a Learning Community, if your schedule is fairly open. Do your research and get involved!

    Food and Dining

    There's a reason they call it Marghetto's, not Marletto's. The UC is okay, but meal plan options get old fast.

    Dorm Life

    Super convenient to live on campus. Those lucky enough to live in Maria hall don't have to leave the building to get food on snowy days.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on the class, really. We have History of Rock and Roll, but also Biochemistry and calculus. Either way, you're going to learn your stuff.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for a lot of scholarships! Live on campus if you can. Don't get bogged down in too many electives your first year. Show them how you're unique.

    In three sentences

    Webster has an extremely accepting environment. The academics are great. The network and connections you'll make is worth it.

    Campus Safety

    Tiny campus, quick public safety. Also we are about one mile from the actual police station.

    Greek Life

    We have one sorority....

    Clubs and Activities

    So many. And if you don't have one you like, make your own.

    Great for these types of students

    Hipsters! Artists! Communications majors and business majors...and definitely theatre students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Strange donuts is the best, definitely eat there. There aren't that many weird things...and if there are, you'll find out about it easily enough.

    Bang for the buck

    Webster is in the city, and the city is expensive. Living off campus would be ideal, but living on is a good experience if you can afford it.

    What to do for fun

    Do intramural sports! Or take an art class, like Design Concepts or Creative Strategies for your GCP. Also, consider a Learning Community, and definitely go to your floor events!

    Food and Dining

    It's pretty good for college food, and you can get bacon whenever you want at Marlettos. However...watch the calories at the UC (if you're serious about eating healthy, otherwise, eat a nutella cheesecake crepe, yum).

    Dorm Life

    Maria is the best. As a freshman, it's the most laid-back, casual residence hall, and there haven't been any problems for my roommate and I.

    Academic Rigor

    My classes haven't been too hard, but I am a very driven student and I do all my homework ahead of time. The professors are very helpful, and are on a first-name basis with all the students. If you ever need help, they are always available.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are many ways to get involved on-campus, but you do have to put yourself out there, and don't be afraid! Also, definitely eat hot breakfast at Marletto's, the omelets are the best.

    In three sentences

    Webster University is a wonderful place for students who are looking for a diverse campus that is small friendly. It is a very liberal, arts-based campus that is easy to find a place in. Webster is friendly and open to all types of students from any background.
