Webb Phonathon

The Webb Phonathon is an annual event when the members of the freshman class come together and contact as many alumni as they can. The phonathon provides an opportunity for the freshmen to reacquaint alumni with Webb and invite them to support the current and future students of Webb Institute.

Over two evenings, the freshmen introduce themselves to alumni through personal phone calls during which discussions range from a simple greeting to a discussion of winter work experiences and freshman year impressions. Webb Institute organizes the annual event as a way to create a bond between the freshmen and the alumni so that they will know more about each other when they meet at alumni regional gatherings, professional meetings, and other events on campus.
