WHAT I LIKED

I love how progressive Webster is and how reliable my professors are. I feel extremely safe here; everyone must take a Title IX class to learn how to approach situations of sexual harassment, and everyone here is vaccinated. Although I'm not a transgender, I also appreciate that the school respects everyone's pronouns and allows us to register our preferred pronouns. My professors have all been great teachers as well as career advisors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only complaint I have is that I wish the food places were open for more hours. They are currently understaffed, so it's understandable.

WHAT I LIKED

The availability and quality of adjunct and faculty staff are outstanding, and the availability of equipment included with tuition is an incredible boon as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's not a terribly social college, but you'll feel accepted and valued by peers and professors.

WHAT I LIKED

Webster is a pretty small school, so the class sizes rarely go over 30. In the art building, average classes were about 15 students and we regularly worked together, critiqued, and gave ideas. It is hard to be a loner here because of all the events, clubs, and programs to be involved with. Just walking to get food, you have to pass by the most active area for club meets and they will usually engage in conversation.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

For Art students, you basically HAVE to pass your BFA review. Graphic Design is considered an art degree there, so I had to take sculpture and 3 art history classes for a field that would solely deal with computer graphics. For four years, I studied to have a BFA in Graphic Design, but by not passing the BFA Review, my degree was changed into a BA in Studio Art. A completely different field that I was being forced into.

WHAT I LIKED

Although Webster University is located in a predominantly white area (Webster Groves) it is a very diverse school. Webster prides itself on its students being "global citizens" and has many campuses across the globe.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Webster University offers meal plans for students in the form of points at the beginning of each semester. If you live on campus and far from home, in my experience, your meal points will run out before the end of the semester (even if you are only eating 2-3 meals a day). Meal points also do not roll over to the next year if you do manage to have extra points by the end of the academic year.

WHAT I LIKED

Webster University has a lovely campus with secret treasures. It was built with the goal of making higher education accessible to students of every background, and that holds true today with its diverse student body. They are renowned for their study abroad program and scholarships. The professors each have unique perspectives perfect for the courses they teach. The more I learn about Webster, the more honored I feel to have been given the opportunity to study here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't live on campus, however, I have heard that the (2 1/2) places to eat are frequently closed. Considering the cost of the meal plan required to live in the dorms, this is rather unfortunate for students struggling financially. Students that likely study full-time as well as work full-time and can't come within the small window of time these places are open. I believe (though not positive as I have only started here a year ago) that this is an issue that arose from being short-staffed at the start of the pandemic.

WHAT I LIKED

Webster has a great film program, and access to more video equipment than many other colleges I had toured.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Didn't have many vegetarian, on-the-go options in dining areas.
