Wenkheim Countdown: 17 weeks

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014:
It's Wenkheim Wednesday and just 17 weeks 'til we move into our new campus location!

Over last couple weeks, we have been documenting the progress of our latest addition to the Academic Resource Center, the project rooms. The framework of the rooms was started just a week and a half ago, and have already shown a great deal of progress.

Students will be able to reserve the work spaces for collaborative group projects, allowing them not to disturb other students who may be quietly working in the library.

Cleaning the Atrium Windows

Wenkheim Countdown: 18 Weeks

Wednesday, April 16, 2014:
With just 18 weeks to go, we're getting even closer to moving into our beautiful, new campus, Palais Wenkheim.

Since last week there has been a great deal of progress going on in the Atrium. They have finished up painting the walls, cleaning up the floors and tearing down the remaining scaffolding. The historic fountain is visible again and not surrounded by a protective wall of wood. The crew has moved in a giant lift to help them reach the glass ceiling to touch up the windows.

Wenkheim Countdown: 20 Weeks!

Wednesday, April 2, 2014:
With just 20 weeks to go, this week the Palais construction crew moved the scaffolding from the back of the building to the front in order to paint. Inside, they have finished painting the atrium and have only a couple remaining levels of scaffolding remaining.

It is amazing to see how quickly the workers proceed with the carpeting. So far, the 4th and 5th floors are already fully carpeted.

With about 50 workers on the job, renovations are moving forward very quickly.

Scholars program

Webster Scholars Internships

On March 7th, the Webster Scholars Program students presented the results of their social impact internships from the last two months, a part of their second course in the program: Paradigms in Global Citizenship (GNST 2500/50). The exciting internship opportunities were brought to the students by course professor Rita Pollozhani  in cooperation with Steliana Kokonova from the Impact Hub and Reka Artner from TEDxVienna. By pairing each Webster Scholar up with a social entrepreneur, the internships provided the students a unique learning experience.
