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.

Charity Christmas Market 2014

On December 4th, a bunch of little Christmas helpers rose early to transform our Atrium into a cozy winter wonderland with delightful music and dishes from around the world! Courtesy of the  Student Government Association and several groups of dedicated students, the Christmas market offered punch, delicious treats and Christmas gifts for the benefit of several good causes!

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.

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.


Student Government Library Fundraiser

Members of our Student Government Association got together and provided some quick eats for students writing their mid-terms - for a good cause! All proceeds went towards Webster's library for the purchase of new books. Thanks to all who volunteered and donated.

Roman Banquet

On the 18th of November 2014, history came alive at Webster Vienna. A Roman-style banquet took place in the Atrium, organized by the students and instructors, Dorothy Kopel and Chris Newman, of ILC 2150: European Culinary History from Prehistory to the Renaissance. The Webster community enthusiastically joined the festivity and enjoyed some authentic Roman dishes in a typical Roman atmosphere.The cuisine was prepared by the Dr. Kopel and her students using ancient Roman recipes!


Charity Halloween Party

Since the opening of Residence am Augarten, Webster’s student community has really blossomed. For Halloween 2014, the students hosted a charity Halloween party, featuring face painting, food, games, a costume contest and charity drive. Attended by a significant percentage of the student population, the party was a huge success!
