Hear from one of our graduates

What stood out to me the most about Webster is the time spent with my colleagues, the professors, and many special presenters that graciously opened up to our class about their life, career, and the struggles associated. Most importantly they all spoke about peace that comes from doing what you were called to do. That peace exceeds any difficulty in pursuing your purpose.
