Geneva

With over twenty centuries of existence, Geneva has a lot to offer from a cultural perspective. In particular, the Old Town is filled with landmarks and historical sites to discover. One can also visit much more recent organizations such as the United Nations or the International Red Cross Museum—just two of the hundreds of institutions that have helped Geneva become the peace and humanitarian capital of the world.

Geneva’s geography, history, economy and cultural fabric all come together to make Geneva a truly International city that Webster students can benefit from in the classroom, or during their leisure time.

One can easily fly directly to most major European cities from Geneva in less than one hour. For those who prefer to stay in Switzerland, the region offers outstanding skiing in the winter and numerous activities around the lake in the summer.
