The residential program at Webb offers students wonderful opportunities to join a closely knitted community of approximately 100 students and 25 adults on campus. Getting students involved in dorm life is crucial to making them feel at home.
From nightly dinners to bowling on the weekends, activities within each dorm and between the dorms create a strong sense of community. This residential life section of this web site is designed to increase the communication between faculty, students, and parents. The weekly calendar gives descriptions of planned activities, allowing all members of the community to be fully informed of upcoming opportunities offered at Webb.
Webb has two male and two female dormitories. Students are assigned to a dorm on the basis of their grade. Each dorm has faculty members who support students in the dorm throughout the week. Each dorm has laundry and kitchen facilities as well as common rooms. The common rooms have a TV and DVD player along with computers and Internet connections. All dorms feature a wireless network.
Webb works to create an environment that encourages independence while providing its students with structure and support. Within the dorms is a network of faculty who are there not only to monitor, but also to offer advice and guidance to students who need it. Our prefect system is designed to develop student leadership opportunities in the residential life program.
With a variety of weekend activities from which to choose, boarders are never at a loss for something to do. Activities range from professional and college level sporting events and concerts in Nashville to white water rafting and trips to area malls and movie theaters. Each dorm plans its own activities, as well. The dorms will go out to dinner, watch movies, go bowling, or whatever everyone decides to do.
"Our boarding experience fosters independence and teaches students to be mindful members of a community. It's wonderful to look back at all the relationships I have formed with boarding students over my 13 years at Webb."
James Garcia, dean of students and director of residential life
