The Transitions program provides resources and services designed to assist students with the transition to Webster University. The Transitions program prepares each student for the academic rigor of Webster University and provides students with an overall knowledge of the resources available to them.
This year Summer TAP students began their college experience the Webster way – through service learning. Students braved the heat by coming together for two service projects. The first project included weeding the side of Webster Hall as we prepare for the fall semester. Webster University is known for its beautiful landscaping and TAP students played a part in keeping it that way. In a second project, student wrote letters to veterans thanking them for their service. These projects will help students prepare for life at Webster. In fact, service-learning is such a big part of Webster that every fall classes are cancelled for “Webster Works” day so that all Webster students can participate in a community service project.
The summer TAP program is an excellent opportunity to help prepare for your first semester at Webster. Students receive academic credit for participation in the program. Pictured above are students from the 2014 cohort.
Transitions students rock! Brandon Halley began his journey at Webster through the summer TAP program in 2013. In just one semester, he is already rising to the top of his class. He was appointed to the Dean’s list for the School of Communications after his first semester!
