Webster Vienna Orientation

The first new student orientation at Vienna’s new location in the Palais Wenkheim forms a “W.”

Each fall, New Student Orientation for undergraduates is a maze of activity at Webster University campuses around the world. Activities range from move-ins, ice-breakers, guest speakers, local food and introductions to the various staff and services available on campus that help make each student’s Webster experience a success.

With this year’s orientations wrapped up and students already participating in their first classes, have a look at orientation scenes from around the world of Webster:
