Parents - Welcome Weekend | Webster University

Parents - Welcome Weekend


Taking place in August, Welcome Weekend encompasses move-in day and various orientation programs for first year students. Welcome Weekend is for students only but there are a few sessions and events for parents that take place on Move-in Day.

Most information that parents will need will be acquired from attending a GROW Day earlier in the summer with their student. If you were not able to attend a GROW event in May or June, a 2 hour GROW Make-up session will be held on Move in Day, Thursday, August 22, 2019.

Parents of residential students are also invited to a session on Thursday, August 22 from 4:00 - 5:30pm in the Loretto-Hilton Center. BRING YOUR STUDENT WITH YOU TO THIS SESSION!

If you have questions about the Welcome Weekend experience for parents, please contact or call 314-968-7007.

Webster University Parent Association

A great resource for parents is Webster’s Parent Association, an organization designed to connect parents with one another and with the Webster community. The Parent Association coordinates events specifically for Webster parents and offers opportunities to volunteer.

Parents may also complete the Family Information Form so that we have the most accurate and updated contact information for our incoming students’ families.  Some families may have completed this form during GROW.  However, if you didn’t attend GROW, please complete the form here. If you have questions, please contact Billy Ratz, Director of Parent Engagement, at
