My personal experience at Webster University has been great overall! The university is small, which provides unmatched opportunities for one-on-one help from professors (as well as internships, TA jobs, etc). If a vivacious and extensive campus life is important for your college experience, Webster University probably isn't for you. There are quite a few different clubs you can join, but the lack of a big sports team or university-wide events keeps people fairly divided between majors. The Conservatory's program and productions are nationally-rebound-- as they should be. The professors and teaching methods are top notch, and the people who go through the program come out as well-rounded performers, technicians, and individuals. If you are an out of state student, it is important to seek additional outside scholarships as the university is quite expensive and the university scholarships do not cover a significant portion of overall expenses.

The school itself is fine. I've had good experiences with my classes and my professors, some of whom are actually highly regarded in their fields (my personal experience was with the Psychology and International Relations departments). The administration is the reason Webster gets three stars. I transferred to Webster, and I had to fight them every step of the way for three years. I had the same problem with financial aid and the business offices. Financial aid drags its feet, which creates problems with your account through the business office. The two offices are down the hall from each other, but they don't communicate so you're left pacing the hallway like an idiot being the intermediary between them. The study abroad program/office is great though!
I am finishing my third year at Webster University at the Webster Leiden Campus. One of the best things about Webster University is its diverse student, staff, and faculty population. Webster provides everyone with the opportunity to expand their knowledge on global citizenship through one of their many international campuses. At Webster Leiden Campus, students are more than just a number. Students and faculty can work closely together in the classroom, which creates a safe and comfortable learning environment. The staff at Webster go above and beyond to welcome students and help guide them through their academic college experiences.
