Washington University in St. Louis has a personality, and you feel it everywhere. It’s a friendly, welcoming feeling that you pick up from students, professors, advisors and sta­ff.

It’s an academic environment loaded with challenging courses, and filled with intellectually curious students and teachers. It’s a flexible, supportive atmosphere that invites exploration and individuality. It's also an optimistic outlook that drives innovation and new opportunities.

We pay special attention to our new students by easing their transition to college life and connecting them to the people, programs and resources to maximize their experiences. At WUSTL, we strive to know every student by name and story because every student is an essential member of our learning community.
