Wenkheim Wednesday: 10 Weeks!

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
Only ten more weeks 'til we officially  open the doors to Palais Wenkheim and begin a new chapter in Webster history.  This week will be the final week for our construction workers as they briskly finish up the final touches to the building's mill work.

Since last week, the library's project rooms have nearly been completed. The rooms now feature comfortable booth seating, surrounding each room's large work table. In addition, sliding glass doors have been added to the rooms.

Wenkheim Countdown: 11 weeks!

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014
We must wait only 11 more weeks until our students move into Webster's new campus, Palais Wenkheim. As the millwork continues, the Palais begins to look more and more like a university campus every day (apart from the giant machine being used for painting touch-ups in the Atrium). Today, we got a glimpse of the workers carrying in a few of the classroom desk/chairs and watched as they carried each of them up the stairs and into the classrooms. The chairs seen below are special swivel chairs which will be used in six of the university's classrooms. They will continue to move in more furniture during the upcoming weeks.

Wenkheim Countdown: 12 weeks!

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
It's Wenkheim Wednesday and just 12 more weeks 'til we move into the newly renovated Palais Wenkheim. With an extended weekend ahead, you may want to consider taking an evening stroll down Praterstrasse to see the Palais's beautiful, illuminating lights we had set up on the façade.  Other additions include new studio lights in the Video Recording Studio. Although the room is completely black, the new lights have the ability to turn the studio into the brightest room in the building.

Students Win Kindles for Outstanding Work

In Spring 2014, first year Webster Vienna students enrolled in FRSH 1200 got up close and personal with issues of poverty, gay rights, WWII, multicultural society and more. Ethics is a core part of the First Year Seminar on the Vienna campus, which includes a special unit that aims to foster ethical reasoning skills.
