Webb Welcomes the Class of 2015!

Orientation Week Activities

Mid-August saw the arrival of the 26 freshmen who comprise the class of 2015.

From August 15 - 21, the freshmen quickly got to know one another, the practice of free-hand drawing, the campus, and the community during what Orientation Week at Webb.  The drawing course, taught by newly “retired” Dean Emeritus Roger Compton, aided by Nathan Hagan ’12, and Dean Neilson, provides a relaxed opportunity for the class members to get to know each other as well as learn about Webb life and history.

During the evenings and later in the week, the students got to know the student orientation volunteers and leaders who had returned to campus for Leadership Week activities.

Besides the normal indoctrination into the Webb life and student organizations consisting of meetings, the freshmen activities also included a few fun trips off campus. These included trips to Six Flags, the USS Intrepid Air and Space Museum, and Manhattan, New York City for a day of exploring. These activities have proven to be well worth the planning and preparation of the administration and student leader; the reactions from the new freshmen about this week were overwhelmingly positive.
