Webster Vienna's Community On Display During Spirit Week

Webster Vienna's community pride was on display when it hosted its first Spirit Week, which brought together students, staff, faculty and alumni in a series of fun events. 

From November 18 through November 23, the Webster Vienna community celebrated diversity and its unique Austrian-American culture. On the first night, participants enjoyed punsch at the Christkindlmarkt Am Hof. Then, teams competed against each other in a friendly Pub Quiz, hosted at Beaver Brewing Company. Wednesday brought with it the Wear Your Webster Shirt Day, for which many on campus received a free Webster Vienna water bottle. On Thursday, everyone indulged in the Cultural Potluck Lunch, which boasted contributions from nearly 20 different people (and different cultures, including Iceland and the Phillipines!). Donuts and coffee fueled midterm studying on Friday.

The final event saw 11 student volunteer at the United Nation's Women's Guild Bazaar held at the Vienna International Center.

Many participants also won prizes through the Spirit Week Raffle. Congratulations to all winners, and especially to Miranda Csellich, who won the grand prize: the New Amazon HD 10 Tablet!

Special thanks to our sponsors Vapiano, SO/Vienna Spa and Buddha Bowl by Elena's for generously donating prizes. Many thanks also to Beaver Brewing Company who hosted our Pub Quiz and to the United Nation's Women's Guild Bazaar.
