At Webster University Geneva, the concept of an international education becomes reality, as 600 students from more than 90 countries come together as a community of learners engaged by a faculty representing 25 nations. Given the presence of the United Nations and other major international organizations, many important international businesses and the largest private banking center in the world, Webster students have the opportunity to take advantage of the resources offered by these institutions to augment classroom learning. When it comes to recreation, whether skiing, hiking, climbing or cycling, the Alps offer some of the best sporting terrain in the world.
Situated in the French speaking part of Switzerland on the shores of Lake Leman at the foot of the Alps, Geneva sparkles as one of Europe's most beautiful and international cities. Geneva is a city whose prominence on the world stage is far greater than its actual size. Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and numerous other international organizations, Geneva has a long history of diversity and tolerance dating back to the Protestant Reformation. Geneva's central location, diverse population and business friendly policies has attracted international and multinational companies from around the world. Close to 50% of the population in Geneva come from other countries, and most people in Switzerland speak two or three languages.
Students who wish to travel within Europe during their study abroad experience would choose Geneva for its central location. The Swiss city has become a major hub of several low-cost airlines. A round-trip ticket to London or Paris, purchased in advance, can be as inexpensive as $60.
Students requesting accommodations for their CCE should contact The Office for Students with Disabilities at the Walter Young Center by calling 262-524-7335 to set up an appointment with Marty Bledsoe.
