Going Beyond the Classroom
Student life in East Legon, Accra is more than sitting in a class. At Webster Ghana, 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.
Our Office of Student Affairs will assist you during your transition to campus. While living on campus, we will provide you with comprehensive support in matters related to your resident permit and insurance, while also offering information regarding medical providers and other services. We’re here to meet the needs of our diverse student body and foster the atmosphere of respect, support and cross-cultural understanding on campus and in our student residences.
The main activity of football club is meeting up every Saturday to play and have fun in a competitive yet friendly atmosphere. Every once in a while, when we find the opportunity to do so, we participate in a tournament, or organize a game with another club, but the most important tournament we enter is the Webster European Cup.
We pick players for the teams in the tournaments we play based on a combination of how serious they are on Saturday training and of course their ability to play football. Most of all, the football club is more like a family than only a team.
Our men’s basketball club meets once a week in order to play several competitive pick-up games. Players of all levels are welcome; it's a great way to meet new people through sport and to exercise.
The volleyball club meets on Tuesdays from 7 pm to 9pm. We’re always looking for new members of every skill level to come and join us and learn more about the sport. It’s a great way to be active, meet new people and have fun.
Are you musically gifted? Are you searching for the right opportunity to express your artistic talent with other people like you? Our Music Club offers students the opportunity to experience the life of a music artist.
Not only does that involve practicing covers and/or composing original songs, but also rehearsing for performances during events at Webster University, such as our Halloween Party and its annual talent show. In addition to these opportunities, the Music Club has plans to collaborate with other media students for music projects that involve both studio and video recordings.
The Cross Cultural Club aims to spread awareness about different cultures, languages and politics by studying features of these cultures through club events. After finishing a four-week block about one country, the club holds an event that can reflect the most interesting aspects of this culture such as art, music, cinematography, and traditional foods.
