New Student Orientation Fall 1 2016

It's that time of year again! Last week Palais Wenkheim was a hive of activity as our newest group of eager Gorloks arrived for their New Student Orientation (NSO) program before classes begin.

European Leadership Retreat 2016

This past weekend, 30 students of the Webster LEADS leadership program from the Geneva, Leiden and Vienna campuses met up for what has become a hallowed annual tradition - the joint European leadership retreat.

Orthodox Easter Celebration

The Webster community gathered last Friday to celebrate Orthodox Easter, an important holiday for many of our students. 

An egg-painting station was set up in the atrium for all who wished to try their hand at the traditional activity - and students, staff and family members from many different faiths did just that. Their creations included traditional designs, but also patterns incorporating their own traditions, including Persian lettering and other Middle Eastern styles.

Student Life Awards 2016

The Webster Vienna community gathered together this week to recognize and celebrate the achievements of our student community leaders at the first ever Student Life Awards ceremony.

A familiar atmosphere, coupled with sushi and a well-dressed crowd of students and supporting faculty and staff made for a great night!

Inspired by the Webster Groves campus' Student Awards, a committee including Student Affairs staff, Student Government, and faculty chose the categories, nominees and winners for this inaugural event.

Webster European Talent Show and Football Tourney

Last weekend, the Webster European community came together on our Geneva campus for the annual weekend festivities surrounding Webster's Got Talent Europe and the Webster European Football Tournament.

Aspiring artists and footballers from the Vienna, Geneva and Leiden campuses went head-to-head on Saturday, first with a five-team indoor football tournament followed by an evening talent show, featuring the winners of each campus' local competition.

Webster at the Vienna City Marathon

Once again this year, Webster Vienna students, staff, faculty and alumni were part of one of the city's most exciting events - the Vienna City Marathon.

Among the more than 42,000 runners were two Webster relay teams (4 members ran legs adding up to the distance of a marathon, 42km), several half-marathoners and one brave full marathon runner.

Webster International Night

Palais Wenkheim was alive with the sounds of the international student community last night as Webster Vienna played host to its first-ever International Night. The evening featured a buffet of foods from diverse kitchens from Austria to Egypt to West Africa, a fashion show of different traditional costumes, and performances.

Mauthausen Memorial Visit

Mauthausen Memorial Visit

Last Saturday, Webster students travelled to Upper Austria for a memorial visit to the former Nazi concentration camp of Mauthausen. 

From 1938 to 1945, Mauthausen was the main concentration camp in what is now Austria (then part of Germany) until its liberation by Allied troops on May 5 - one of the last camps to be freed. 

Webster's Got Talent 2016

The fourth edition of Webster's Got Talent (WGT) Vienna set the town on fire last Friday night, as six creative students stepped into the limelight for the right to represent the Vienna Campus at the Webster's Got Talent Europe competition to be held in Geneva in April.

Students, staff and faculty packed local club Chaya Fuera to get a glimpse of the action - and they weren't to be disappointed. 

Graduate student James Seibert got the show started with a powerful rendition of the anthem of the musical Chess, which set the tone for the evening and drew loud cheers.
