Students also baked sweets to raise funds for the Initiative High Lung Pressure charity.

Webster University students, alumni, faculty and staff of the Vienna campus celebrated its new home in the Palais Wenkheim with a festive reception on Oct. 1.

Campus director Arthur Hirsh delivered an opening speech, noting, “This move is a step into the right direction for the years to come.” The astonished faces of visitors showed as they toured the breathtaking facility and viewed a video showing the steps of its refurbishment over the past six months.

At the celebration, guests enjoyed American-style hot dogs and popcorn, while listening to live music by RayVille. Vienna’s Webster Works Worldwide charity bake sale gave guests the option to taste sweet treats from the diverse cultures of the Webster community, with proceeds going to Initiative High Lung Pressure.

Webster students and staff guided tours throughout the building and guests had the opportunity to win raffle prizes and learn about the current student clubs at Webster Vienna Private University, which opened in 1981 and now moves to the city’s historic district in 2014.

Hirsh extended a big thank you to all the organizers for planning a fabulous way to open a new chapter in Webster University’s history in Austria!
