“AMAZING UNDERGRAD EXPERIENCE”
August 2018FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

-friendly community/students (I made some long lasting friendships)

-not cut throat

-accessible professors

-the Greek system doesn't separate people from socializing like at some schools

-easy to take classes in different schools

-great study abroad programs (esp. for business school)

-STL is a great place to go to school, very under-rated

Downers

I honestly don't have any downers. It was the best undergrad experience I could have asked for. It was a perfect fit for me.

Comments

The school is a nice size. It's big enough that you don't feel like you can never meet someone new, but it's small enough you don't feel lost in a sea of students.

Amazing professors, help from all the staff, small classes and incredible facilities.

Downers

The location is in saint louis where the economy and business environment is not very good.

It is a great school, if you want an amazing university experience, try applying. If you want a metropolitan experience, then don't

“Current Student”
June 2016CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Here are some descriptors that come to mind: friendly atmosphere, very intellectual, collaborative, academic flexibility, amazing standard of life.

Downers

Sometimes people can be too devoted to school. Other than that, I can't think of any real negatives.

Comments

WashU offers fantastic academics and a friendly student body. There is also no shortage of things to get involved in (be it socially, academically, athletically, etc.). Also, being encouraged to study across different schools is a HUGE plus that I don't think many people realize before entering college.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Uppers

Great faculty and facilities. The school has wonderful programs in many different fields

Downers

Connection with the greater St. Louis area is lacking. Diversity and integration of student groups is lacking.

Comments

Great school in a city that is really underrated. The campus is beautiful and the faculty is world class.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“An excellent four years, academically and socially”
July 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

The people are friendly and the staff is genuinely concerned about your wellbeing

Downers

The name recognition, although this is getting better. I suppose as the school raises/maintains its rankings, it will continue to be more recognizable

Comments

Definitely go visit, if you feel like you "fit" then go! It is a school where you will be extremely happy, I haven't heard of one person that regrets going.

Would You Recommend

Yes
