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.

Students awarded for excellent blog

In Fall 2013, first year Webster students enrolled in FRSH Ethics got up close and personal with issues of poverty, vegetarianism, prostitution, food waste and more. Ethics is a core part of the Freshman Seminar and aims to foster ethical reasoning skills. For the Ethics final project, faculty members, Dr. Gupta and Mag.

Students were asked to form project teams and choose an ethically controversial topic.
