Follin/Webb 150 Series

The Follin Series is an endowed program at Webb that brings speakers, performances and other programs to the school. The events are free and open to the public. As part of the series, guests meet with a group of students for discussion over lunch and visit classes in addition to the public presentation in Follin Chapel.

In observance of Webb's 150th Anniversary, three speakers were hosted during the fall semester. Included were Andrew Maraniss, Wayne White and Thompson Webb, great-grandson of Sawney Webb. Dr. John McCardell spoke in January 2020 prior to the campus closing in March as a result of COVID-19. Mark Wood, originally scheduled for May 2020, joined with the Webb String Orchestra for a concert in February 2021.
