2023 Young Alumni Cookie Mailing Brings Treats to Mailboxes
Almost 300 boxes of the famous Webb Dining Hall cookies were shipped out to Webb’s young alumni in college in February. The treats hit the mailboxes of many students as they approach the midterm mark of their second semester.
Ms. Guadalupe Perez of Webb’s Dining Hall staff took on the enormous feat of getting to campus at 5 a.m. to make over 2,000 of the delicious chocolate chip cookies, a student favorite. Lupe has been with Webb since 2005! With the cookies fresh out of the oven, Webb parents assisted Alumni and Parent Relations staff with the box making, packaging and labeling to make sure they were as fresh as possible for alumni. Thank you to all of the Webb parents for your amazing help in undertaking this fun tradition!
Individual packages branded with a custom 2023 Cookie Mailing sticker containing half a dozen cookies were shipped off to alumni at various colleges, universities and homes in 29 states and Washington, D.C. Other Webb goodies were shipped to alumni living or studying internationally so that they could enjoy a special treat from Webb. All alumni were greeted with a special message from the Alumni Office.
Once cookies started hitting mailboxes, young alumni showed love and gratitude for their alma mater by sharing photos of their cookies and packages – on athletic fields, near gorgeous campus backdrops, in the snow, pictured with horses, dogs, fellow alumni and taken during late night study sessions. So many alumni remark how much they missed these cookies and being on campus. These posts and photos are a highlight for the Alumni Office each year. Check out all the photos from the young alumni HERE or on the “Cookie Mailing 2023” highlight real on our @webbalumni Instagram.
A huge thank you to all who participated, and we look forward to continuing this tradition! Please let the alumni office know if you’re craving these cookies and we would be happy to get you back on campus to enjoy the sweets and catch up with you!
