A current undergrad admits, “This is the hardest I’ve worked my whole life and passing with a C is considered a success.” Most, however, welcome the challenge, saying the school excels at “fostering values of hard work, perseverance, leadership, honesty, and respect” in every student. Because Webb is “a college the size of a frat” (there are only about eighty undergraduates!), “you know everyone, professors and president included.” Plus, “with no teaching assistants or graduate students, you always interact directly with the professor.” They also “have significant work experience that they bring to the classroom to relate lessons to the real world.”
On top of that, students “gain job experience by working for two months every winter” via the “mandatory internship program,” which means each “will graduate with eight months of work experience in the field.” Students are prepared, and it shows: The school boasts an incredible “100 percent placement rate” post-graduation. Even better, all admitted U.S. citizens receive a “full scholarship” covering their tuition—they are only responsible for the costs of room, board, and supplies.
Located “in a mansion on Long Island sound,” the beautiful Webb campus “is full of scenic places to relax, both outdoors and in.” Not surprisingly, maritime activities are popular pastimes. On the weekends, many go “sailing or kayaking,” or take “one of the school-funded motor boats on the Long Island Sound for some fishing or water skiing.” Webb undergrads engage in more traditional college activities, too—”sports, movies, video games, —or “venture into NYC occasionally” for a night on the town.”
