The mission and vision of the Business Club is to arrange and provide different aspects of applicable business experiences for students.
To ensure healthy and successful activity-based learning, the club provides knowledge and skill-building opportunities through “outside of classroom” and/or “hands-on-experiences” in different areas of businesses. Career development and business acumen are promoted by having the students engage in activities designed to reflect different aspects of cooperative business, including administration (planning), finance and accounting, media communication (marketing), management (human resource), career development (internship opportunities) and social responsibility.
Formerly known as the Cheerleading Club, the Dance Club is now more than just a group of cheerleaders! They practice on campus twice (or sometimes, even thrice) every week after hours and indulge in all different types of dances. The club performs at intercollegiate basketball, football and badminton tournament that Webster Cha-am participates in with Stamford University Hua Hin, at least once every year. Membership to the club is open to all – even staff and faculty!
Focused on bringing renowned guest speakers, hosting debates and spreading news from all across the globe is the International Relations (IR) Club. The club, while related to the IR Department, is open for all students who may be interested in political debate, current affairs or just having an intellectual conversation regarding global events with some like-minded individuals. The IR Club works hard to expose the students to many esteemed guests such as former and current ambassadors, foreign dignitaries and senior officials from different NGO and INGOs. The Club is also always on a hunt for conferences that students may be a part of in hopes of always expanding their knowledge, in and out of the classrooms.
The Media Club falls under the media department and, like all other clubs, works closely with the Student Affairs Department at Webster University Thailand Cha-am Campus. The club welcomes all students, but its activities are based on media related work such as photography, videography and production. Media club also helps other clubs by taking pictures in their events and making promotional videos for publicizing their events. The W Production newsletters are also part of the media club’s work where they publish monthly newsletter to keep the students, staff and faculty updated on what’s going on at campus.
The Music Club needs not much introduction of explanation. At the Cha-am Campus, the students have access to the Music Room that has a drum-set, 3 guitars (acoustic, electric and base), an electric keyboard, amplifiers and microphones. Students contact the Music Club leaders or the One-Stop Service when they need to use the room and they can jam together or alone when they have some free time on campus. Members of the club form a band and also perform in school events when there are visitors, during club activities and at the biggest annual event – Collage of Cultures.
The Psychology Students Association at Webster University Thailand is open to all students of any major. However, students who join the club must be willing to learn and explore the field of psychology. The purposes of the club are to learn through practical experience, outside formal classroom settings, as well as to learn how to engage and work in harmony with one another.
As a club, we meet once a week and try to learn something new – or something old but in a new and different way. The members are free to share their interests, and the club tries to incorporate this into its sessions. As a club, we organize field trips, arrange fun activities and sometimes invite experienced guest lecturers. The psychology club (PSA) and the psychology department work closely together, and the club promotes togetherness. This is a great place for members to find like-minded people to share a coffee with. Snacks are also available at most meetings.
Rotaract brings together students to take action in their communities, develop their leadership and professional skills, and have fun. Rotary clubs sponsor them, but Rotaract members manage and fund their clubs independently. Past projects include English Teaching at the local Thai elementary schools, beach clean-up, blood donation, Movember and other donation projects. Community service is at the heart of Rotaract’s mission and building better leaders for the future is its goal.
