Thanksgiving 2014

Webster Thanksgiving 2014

Webster students, staff, faculty and family gathered together to celebrate the American holiday with a traditional Thanksgiving feast! Like every year, Director Arthur Hirsh kicked off the event by telling the history of Thanksgiving and its meaning to the American people, reminding us all what we should be thankful for.  In contrast to previous Thanksgivings, the festivities were enjoyed for the first time in Wenkheim's beautiful Atrium, yet another reason to be grateful.

Ethics workshop

Ethics Workshop for Freshman Class

At the beginning of this term, our Freshman Class took part in an exciting new event at Webster Vienna: the Ethics Workshop. Over the course of two days, our first year students were immersed into the challenging world of Ethics. Guided by our skilled faculty members, students had the opportunity to explore a number of ethical and moral dilemmas through simulations, role-plays and group discussions. The objective of this workshop was to put them in real life situations, emulating the challenges that they will face as they develop from university students to working members of society.
