Studying abroad leads to culture shock for students

Webster offers a wide range of study abroad opportunities to its students. There are so many reasons that studying abroad may seem daunting to some: leaving your friends and family, moving to completely unfamiliar territory, language barriers, visas and finances. Others might be excited to thrive in a different environment, meet new people, benefit from campus-specific courses, and have a fresh start. For me, it was a bit of both. 

Students officially form Webster University Conservatives (WUCON)

With the new year, student-led political activism at Webster is expanding. In 2019, students began organizing the foundations of the Webster University Conservatives club (WUCON). These efforts were led by the former club president, Vincent Fedorko, who is now studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland. At this time, the club has been officially registered and is in action, but club members feel tension within the Webster community.
