Advising for Incoming Freshmen

Welcome to Webster University! It is an exciting time for you as you embark on the next stage of your education. You will get to focus on a particular area of study while getting the kind of general grounding that will prepare you for jobs, careers, and callings that don’t even exist yet by taking courses that will give you the knowledge and skills for responsible global citizenship in the 21st Century.

We have designed Freshman Day events that are an opportunity to meet faculty advisors, fellow students, and helpful representatives of important offices. All of us will want to welcome you and make this as informative and comfortable as possible for you and your family. We strongly urge you to sign up below for one of these events.
