Students and library celebrate successful fundraiser

The Student Government Association's Pizza Fundraiser last November was more than just a healthy lunch break, it also helped grow the Library and Learning Center. Bachelor students Alexis Wing and Tristan Oblinger, who organized the event, served pizza in the atrium and accepted donations on behalf of the library, can now see the fruits of their labors: books about food.

Students help feed the homeless

Last weekend, two Webster students took it upon themselves to lend a helping hand to some of Vienna's neediest residents. Ilian Scheutz and Matthias Smolej, both members of the Webster LEADS student leadership program, spent the weekend volunteering at the International Mathematics Competition hosted by Webster.

Webster Vienna Tennis Club

Tennis club hits the courts

There's a new student club in town this semester, and it's taking local courts by storm. The Webster Vienna Tennis Club has gotten off to a great start this semester, as students have met regularly to polish their stroke. Founded by business administration major Alexis Wing, along with the support of classmate Artyom Rayevskiy, the Tennis Club has been meeting up to play doubles matches.

Webster's Got Talent (Vienna)

The Webster community gathered last week as six talented students competed for the chance to represent Vienna at the European finals. They gave the crowds a spectacular show of singing and dancing, as did the guest alumni performers. Congrats to finalists Audrey Kodjo and Kristof McFerren! Thanks to all performers, volunteers, judges and fans for making this a great event - we wish them luck at the finals (also held in Vienna this year) on April 18.

New Student Orientation Spring I, 2015

This January, we welcomed our students for New Student Orientation with an assortment of activities. Between a series of tours, introductions and activities to help the students get to know each other and the university, the group was treated to a complementary breakfast and lunch. Now that they are all aware of who to contact for a schnitzel dinner or a night out of karaoke, we hope all of our new and study abroad students have a great term!

NSO 2013

New Student Orientation (Spring I, 2015)

The New Student Orientation (NSO) will kick off for our incoming undergraduate and graduate students from January 7th-11th. It is a great opportunity to meet one’s peers new to Webster and familiarize oneself with the American university system. Students also have the opportunity to meet and make an appointment with the academic advisor, learn more about Vienna and all it has to offer to degree seeking students, discuss cultural differences and culture shock, and last but not least get acquainted with the Webster Vienna campus and its various services, staff and faculty.

United Nations Women’s Guild Bazaar

Webster students were out in force for a good cause last weekend. A dozen blue-and-yellow clad students volunteered at the annual United Nations Women’s Guild Bazaar to help raise funds for children’s charities around the world. Volunteers helped out selling gift items, tombola tickets, prizes and at the cloakroom – though they were of course free to enjoy the festivities as well! All student volunteer hours were counted as part of the Service Learning component of the Webster LEADS program.
