ESN Wädenswil is a small but friendly section. The exchange students profit not only from the Wädenswil events but also from those in Winterthur, as they are part of the same school. Furthermore, they can participate in all events of ESN Zürich. ESN Wädenswil organises various events during the term. The goal of this section is to help exchange students find Swiss friends quickly; the local buddy system is contributing to achieving this goal. On average, there are about 15 exchange students per semester at the ZHAW Wädenswil.
