Jordan from High Ridge, MO
Webster University is far better than any other college or University I've gone to. The Instructors and Counselors uphold Integrity and Character and the school stands behind it's culture. I couldn't have chosen a better University to attend.
JOHANNA from SAINT LOUIS, MO
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.
