Sophomore Career Evening 2020

Alumni returned to campus on February 23 to speak at the 21st Annual Sophomore Career Evening, hosted by the Alumni Council.

Over the course of the night, alumni speakers shared their experiences with students, leading discussions about the field of medicine, finding your path in the family business, hospitality and management, what it’s like to own and operate your own business, and the fast-paced world of technology.

During the opening remarks, Alumni Council President, Doug Gregg ’66, encouraged students to ask questions and take advantage of the Webb alumni network. Students then attended two sessions of their choice, followed by an opportunity to network with alumni over cookies and cocoa. While each session had its own focus, alumni shared with students just how influential their Webb experience was to their future and the importance of networking.

  • Emily Boyce '04 talked about the importance of studying abroad. She also stressed hard work, integrity and knowing what your team wants.
  • Angie Alexander '07 showed students her skills tracking spreadsheet, a tool she uses to show her strengths and reach the next level.
  • Jeff Taylor '06 encouraged students to be humble. "Users are at the center of everything we are doing. Be humble as a team. If it does'nt work, accept it and change it!"
  • Zamia Cohen '95 said it was important to pay attention to both the things she liked and didn't like. "The no's are important pieces of your puzzle."
Many thanks to our 2020 alumni speakers:

  • Alf Museum: Lofgren and 10 Students Co-Author Research Paper

    Over 100 years ago, the first report was made of 30-40 myo vertebrate fossils located in the Gravelly Range of southwest Montana at sites up to 10,000 feet in elevation . The first collection was made in the late 1940s by a crew from the Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) at Harvard University. In the 1980s, Malcolm McKenna ’48 and others representing the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York also made important collections in the Gravelly Range.
    However, almost all of these specimens were never studied.
     
    About 15 years ago. McKenna told Alf Museum Director Don Lofgren about the area, and in 2016, Gravelly Range mammals became a research project for Webb students in the Advanced Studies in Paleontology (ASIP) course. Many additional specimens were collected by summer crews that included Webb students & alumni, and museum trustees. These fossils and specimens borrowed from the MCZ and AMNH were studied by students in ASIP, and now three years later, their work was published in the March 2020 issue of Paludicola, a journal by the Rochester Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology. The paper has ten Webb student coauthors; Jackson Bibbens ’18, Isabella Kong ’18, Andrew Tarakji ’18, Isabel Gerard ’19, and current seniors Liam Gerken, Frank Hu, Aspen Helgeson, Cecilia Li, Emily Li, and Jill Ji.
