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!

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking isn't difficult. Class website is easy to navigate and app is as well. I received a Webster folder full of useful information during orientation. Orientation was quick, easy and painless. And they fed us well!
As a freshmen coming in from South Florida, Webster was definitely the best University to go to get a feeling of a home away from home. Everything was different from what I was used to from the environment, the weather, and the people but Webster made the transition for me smoother than I thought possible from the many activities and programs offered from all directions of the university, the diverse community people around me helping me and others to reach their full potential and without a doubt the help of my advisors, coaches, teammates, and professors. When I voiced my concerns, my concerns were listen to and handled. Even though, I just completed my first year at Webster I truly do look forward to any and everything Webster has to offer me in the next 3 years. I have met great people and have had great experiences all thanks to Webster University. My home away from home.
