Going Beyond the Classroom

Student life at Webster Vienna is more than sitting in a class. At Webster Vienna, there are many events and activities designed to entertain, inform and challenge. Faculty, staff and students also work together to organize network opportunities from academic conferences and workshops to forums.

The clubs and activities you participate in during your studies are an essential part of student life. The quality of student life, experience of individual students and a strong sense of community are at the heart of the SGA at Webster Vienna. As well as advocating on behalf of students’ right and needs, the SGA is an avenue through which students can raise concerns and even make recommendations to the benefit of all, uniting the views and ideas of all students on campus.

Our Clubs and Associations

Hone your strategy game with friendly competition with your fellow students.

Although Webster is an American University, the Football Club is about the beautiful game, soccer. Current students and alumni who participate, practice together throughout the year and compete in local tournaments.

All skill levels welcome, basketballers meet once a week for a fun scrimmage.

Webster’s own Model UN for students at all experience levels. Each year members analyze and research a selected topic and act as a delegate at MUN conferences. Webster hosts and attends conferences around the world.
