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.

Wenkheim Countdown: We are moving in!

This week we are opening the doors to our new campus – Palais Wenkheim. On Monday, August 11th, director Dr. Arthur Hirsh welcomed faculty and staff to their new offices and class rooms. This was a historic and very happy day for Webster Vienna. Palais Wenkheim is a magnificent, bright and elegant building with a very central location in Vienna. We now look forward to meet our new students for New Student Orientation on Wednesday the 20th of August and to welcome back all returning students on August the 25th.

Wenkheim Countdown: 8 Weeks

Although still two months away from opening, Palais Wenkheim has begun to liven up as it hosted its first two events this week. Yesterday, a press conference was held to discuss Webster Vienna's up-coming move. Also, today, the Webster Vienna Advisory Board met and enjoyed their first tour of the renovated building.

With small chats in the atrium and refreshments in the library, the new building has already demonstrated its ideal environment for hosting both Webster and international events.

It's once again Wenkheim Wednesday and we are now just 9 weeks away from the start of the Fall semester at the new Palais Wenkheim.

We are very proud of how far we have come and are excited as the next few weeks take us even closer to the finish line.
