Independence and Leadership

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. Whether it's a lesson on how to do laundry, how to manage one's personal schedule, or how to live with various personalities in the dorm, our students learn valuable life skills. Our prefect system is designed to develop student leadership opportunities within the residential life program.

Weekend Activities

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.
