International Student Welcome in St. Louis: The "international" in Webster's student body doesn't just stem from the multicultural campuses in Europe, Asia and Africa. It also comes from the many international students who come to the original campus in St. Louis to call Webster home.

The Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs hosted a week of orientation activities specifically for new students coming to Webster from abroad. Check out photos of their events in this Facebook album.

Move-in, Level Up in St. Louis: While faculty and staff attended Fall Convocation to "level up," this past week was full orientation and move-in activities at the home campus in St. Louis, where Webster was founded in 1915. Staff, faculty and returning students welcomed hundreds of new and transfer undergraduates and graduate students to Webster.
