Washington University in St. Louis Reviews
WashU has opened up a lot of doors for me in terms of career exploration and pursuit. They have fantastic opportunities for research, community engagement, and intellectual pursuit. I think that they prepare their students well for life post-graduation, but I do think that the school needs to work on its accessibility to students from more diverse socioeconomic backgrounds!
WashU was the ideal place for me to spend my undergraduate career. They do an amazing job of giving students a great experience! The campus is beautiful, the professors are top-notch, and they provide an excellent education.
Many opportunities to meet people from different backgrounds, races, opinions, political stances, and abilities. This has overall helped me grow as a person, whether that be through intellectual conversation or through experiencing prejudice myself (unfortunate but has taught me a lot). There is diversity in most categories (except socioeconomic) but still much room for improvement in the university's inclusion of its minority populations, especially racial.
