About

Washington University in St. Louis is counted among the world's leaders in teaching and research, and draws students and faculty from all 50 states and more than 100 nations. Located in a suburban neighborhood seven miles west of downtown, the campus is full of grassy areas, quiet nooks with benches and flowers, and lots of trees. You'll almost always see people out soaking up the sun while studying, walking, jogging, or just relaxing. And right in our front yard is Forest Park, the largest urban park in the country.
