The New Student Orientation from the Department of First Year Experience is a great program and greatly helps students to become acclimated to being in college. The advising process needs greatly revamped! While I am on trac with my degree, I do struggle getting accurate help and information on the next step in my plan of study.
Review Webster University
I lived on campus all four years at Webster. I had a job on campus and was very involved in campus life and different student organizations. That being said, I can confidently say that Webster's has a diverse, intelligent, passionate and welcoming community. My issues with Webster arose with the administration and organization as a whole. Although it's probably true for many institutions, I felt that the administration didn't really care for the students. I felt that most of Webster's care was toward prospective students and alumni. Teachers and professional staff did not give me this impression, but the president/provost/ top positions did.
With only one sorority on campus, it doesn't have to be a big part of Webster's experience. That being said, I am in Delta Phi Epsilon, and this is making my college experience. While mainly a community service sorority, we are very active on our campus. Holding events like Deepher Dude and Trivia Night's, we are making a difference. The girls I have met through DPhiE have become my best friends and I could not be more thankful to have joined such an incredible bond of sisterhood!
