Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, Sailing, Waterskiing, Webb Family Singers (WooFS), Anchor Club, Culture Club, Garage Club, Drone Club, Mobile Grilling Club, Green Club, Culture Club, Fishing Club, Ping-pong Club, Leadership Committee, and numerous other activities and events.

What’s your favorite spot on campus and why?
There are many spots I like on campus, but my favorite is the classroom. It’s where we live and work and spend time together more than in any other single place, and it holds a lot of memories.

What will you miss the most about Webb?
I love being around my classmates all the time! Leaving Webb will be like moving away from family all over again.

Do you have any advice for incoming students?
Love your classmates, forgive them, and care for them. It’ll be worth it.
