Extracurricular Activities and Cultural Events
Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It hosts numerous international organizations such as the UN Atomic Energy Agency, the UN Industrial Development Organization and OPEC, and it is an important cultural center with many theaters, concert halls and museums. The city also provides many athletic and recreational activities, such as biking, swimming and skating. WU offers an orientation 3 weeks prior to the start of the semester which includes sight seeing, field trips and presentations on Austria. Exchange students can also benefit from the academic advisors that are specifically selected for each WU partner university. Finally, The Austrian Students' Union at WU provides exchange students with a "buddy" to act as a personal mentor.
