Homecoming 2019

The Last of Its Kind!

This was an extremely special Homecoming, the last one of its kind until the opening of the new Couch Academic Center, where the landscape of the campus will be forever changed for the better!

Presentations were made focusing on the history and future of Webb, starting with a viewing of Spencer Schubert’s Zeien lecture about the concept and creation of the life-sized, bronze sculpture of William H. Webb. Afterwards, a presentation was made by students, describing their recent Winter Work experiences. Reneé Tremblay ’20 and Linda Waters ’20 spoke about the “The Braes”and the history of the Glen Cove campus. This was followed by a presentation by President Michel and architect, Dr. Carol Bentel of Bentel & Bentel, about the landscaping and construction of the Couch Academic Center.

Special highlights included personal tours of the new Couch Academic Center given by President Michel ’73, Dean Werner ’95, PG’97, and Dr. Bentel.

As always, the WooFS gave an excellent performance, as did the Webb Student Jazz Band.

Special thanks to Gailmarie Sujecki and the Development, Culinary, Media Relations, and Facilities teams that made this all possible!
