Graduate New Student Orientation

Welcomed here by President Beth Stroble, new graduate students heard from several Webster University leaders to prepare them for success.

While undergraduates have spent the last week getting oriented to Webster University, their graduate counterparts are already in the full swing of Fall 1 courses. New Student Orientation for graduate students at the home campus in Webster Groves was held on the eve of the term, with a variety of University leaders welcoming the students and discussing how to succeed at Webster.

More than 100 new students heard from President Beth Stroble, Nancy Hellerud, associate provost; Beth Russell, assistant provost for Graduate Studies, and Ted Hoef, associate vice president and dean of students on a Saturday afternoon.

As Russel said, “It takes a village” to ensure students are connected with the support and resources to help them succeed. “The engagement and words of encouragement were so appreciated and well received by our new students.”

In addition to the administration leaders, individual schools, colleges and offices from throughout the university were present to highlight their programs and services for these students as they pursue their graduate degree.
