Leadership Students Partners in Crime

Last Friday, a team of Webster's leadership program students (Webster LEADS) set out on an adventure to figure out whether they could work together to solve a room full of riddles under time pressure! 

Our intrepid young leaders spent the afternoon at Crime Runners, Vienna's hottest room escape experience, to have fun while working on team building. Afterwards, they reflected on teamwork and leadership under time constraints, and in unpredictable surroundings.

Vienna Ball of Sciences 2016

The Webster Community got a taste of traditional Viennese culture over the weekend.

Over 50 very fancy and stylish Webster students, faculty and staff attended the second annual Vienna Ball of Sciences (Wiener Ball der Wissenschaften) this past Saturday, January 30th 2016.

Thanks Friday's crash dance course from Tanzschule Elmayer and a lovely pre-ball reception at Palais Wenkheim, both organised by the Student Government Association (SGA) our students were waltzing the night away.

New Student Orientation Spring 1, 2016

Webster Vienna welcomed our Spring 1 new students to the community at the beginning of January 2016!

Football team friendlies

Webster Vienna's Football club tested their mettle last week in two spirited friendly matches against local opponents.

Webster's football talents formed two 7-man teams to square off on an unseasonably warm night against PROSA, a high school team consisting of asylum seekers, and the experienced squad of NAFA, a local African football academy.

Student Leadership retreat

Last weekend students of the leadership certificate program Webster LEADS gathered in Hainburg for Webster Vienna's first-ever 24-hour mini-leadership retreat. Ten freshmen and four upperclassmen Senior Student Leaders attended.

Led by the program's Senior Leaders and Student Affairs staff, the group worked on team-building, goal-setting, reflection, team-work, and group communication. Activities included mapping their leadership journeys, cooking, and discussing different leadership personalities.

Pre-Halloween Blood Drive

As has become a once-a-semester tradition, staff and students of Webster Vienna stopped by the Austrian Red Cross donation center to give blood last night.

This semester's theme was Halloween-related, with a vampire Gorlok mascot and the slogan "Not only vampires need blood!"

Congrats especially go to first-time donor, bachelor student Anniken Schackt. "I'm proud of myself," she said after a post-donation snack, "I was pretty nervous before but I did it."

New Student Orientation Fall 2

Webster Vienna once again welcomed a new group of students to our community this week.

Our freshest Gorloks were put through the paces of what it means to be a student at Webster: learning the ropes of their programs and the resources available to them; getting to know each other and our current students; and a first glimpse into what Vienna has to offer for the next four years.

A big thanks to all the Webster LEADS students who helped welcome their new colleagues by leading workshops and answering questions, and we wish our new students success with us!

Refugee charity day

Webster Vienna hosted its annual Webster Works Worldwide charity bake sale this week.

This year's theme, by student request, was 3 B's for refugees: Bake, Buy or Bring. Our community baked, bought and brought needed items to help refugees in Austria.

In all, we raised over 900EUR and collected lots of donations-in-kind to help out! A team of students used the donations to buy needed goods, which were then delivered to organizations assisting refugees and asylum seekers in Austria.

On October 1st, 2015, Webster Vienna had the pleasure of welcoming the members of Zukunftsforum (i.e. leading individuals from the media, business, politics and media agencies) to Webster Vienna.

Webster team at Vienna Night Run

Once again a team of Webster Vienna students, staff and faculty braved the cool autumn evening to participate in the Vienna Night Run along with 20,000 other running enthusiasts.

Not only was it fun and healthy, but part of each racer's fee went to the charity Licht fuer die Welt to help seeing-impaired children in developing countries.
