Wenkheim Celebration!

On 1st of October the new home of Webster Vienna Private University was celebrated by students, alumni, faculty and staff. While Director Dr. Arthur Hirsh gave an Opening Speech and pointed out that “this move is a step into the right direction for the years to come”, the astonished faces of the visitors wandered around the new breathtaking facility. A video showed the steps of the refurbishment over the past six months.

The Webster Vienna community celebrated both new and returning scholarship students today at brunch in their honor. Scholarship coordinator Katherine Price Beuchert, Academic Director Dr. Regina Kecht, and Student Services Coordinator Jesse Alexander spoke at the event, which highlighted the rigorous academic standards and service aspects of scholarships at Webster Vienna.

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.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation Kicks Off at Palais Wenkheim

Today, the very first students arrived at our new location - Palais Wenkheim.
The two-day orientation kicked off this morning with a new cohort of 71 undergraduate students!

After a warm welcome from our Director Dr. Arthur Hirsh, the students broke into groups and received a tour of the building lead by our student leaders from the Webster Leads program. The groups were the very first to use our new classrooms, where they were welcomed into the Webster community and introduced to Webster's academic system, expectations, and our code of honor.

New Student Orientation - Undergraduate Students

The New Student Orientation is mandatory for new students and a great opportunity to meet one’s peers new to Webster and familiarize oneself with the American university system, 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.
