Positive Negative Neutral Advice
Do not attend this university.Quite BrightSociology
Do not attend this university. They only care about your money and your tuition will raise by thousands of dollars every year. The chess coach is the highest paid individual at this school. The second being the school board's mouth piece that they use as a shield so they can claim ?diversity?, Beth Stroble. They don't pay their professors well at all, which shows in the quality of education. Webster's drop out rate is exponentially higher than their graduation rate for a reason, and that is that everyone running the university is greedy and will demand that in order to do anything at that school, you have to pay your outstanding "owed" balance to $1,500. They don't care what your financial situation is, they want your money and will ruin your future to do it.

I had to drop out because it costed too much, and when I decided to go to a different school to get my degree, they decided to withhold my transcript until I pay my account balance down. Not sure how they get away with the legality of that, but they have trapped me and several others into a financial situation that I cannot escape.

They will own your soul if they can get it.Don't come here, you will regret every second of it.

Question
Do not attend this university especially if youSuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
Do not attend this university especially if you are a non-traditional student. The negatives are so numerous I can only list a few: picking up graduation cap and gown I was sent to the bookstore who could not answer questions regarding honors regalia. They sent me to Student Advising. Advising could not answer the questions and sent me to the Department Chair. The Department Chair was not aware and seemed frustrated that I asked; finally days later I received a response and had to make a return trip to purchase the correct items. This type of ambiguity in administration and organization is common practice. Do not expect personalized attention as advertised. You will be directed to a webpage and email address to contact and find the information yourself for the majority of questions. Most professors are rarely available outside of class, there is no tangible assistance with job placement, the office hours are extremely inconvenient, parking is horrible and last but not least an adjunct music professor recently instructs her class to google the answers.

Question
Do not trust anyone at this University.Quite BrightArt & Design Department
Do not trust anyone at this University. They will Lie to your face and not keep their word. They take full advantage of collecting money, but offer little help when it comes to career planning and federal work study. I am being cut off of food assistance because of a faculty member by the name of Chris Bowman promising me a job then following up weeks later with it is not in the budget. Also Do not plan on career services assisting you, cause they won't. I would recommend Webster fire these individuals and re staff. but that would require the administration to actually do work!!!!!!!
