Sophomore Career Evening 2019

Alumni returned to campus on February 10 to speak at the 20th 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, how to follow your passion, careers in academia and education, the film and entertainment industry, and how to be an innovator in your industry.

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 afterwards.  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. Michael McDermott ’83 talked about the importance of the honor code and how it influenced his life and business. Christine Choi Kim '94 told students, “Don’t prepare the path for yourself, prepare yourself for the path.” 

The Alumni Office extends a sincere thank you to the Alumni Council members who attended, Micol Issa ’05, Praveena Jeereddi ’90, Dwight Morgan ’65, Bill Ripley ’60 and President Doug Gregg ’66, and our 2019 alumni speakers:

    “The process of finding the right college is more often than not riddled with anxiety for both students and their families. It is paradoxically both increasingly complex and more streamlined than ever. Technology allows students to simply add multiple colleges to the Common Application with a few clicks. And yet the convenience doesn’t reflect the intricate web of criteria that factor into applying to one college over another.”
    So opens the feature to our recent issue of WEBB Magazine. Reported and written by Christopher Michno, the piece delves into the myths and truths intertwined in the college admission process. He also offers up a series of personal success stories from recent Webb alumni now thriving at Stanford, Columbia, UC Berkeley and beyond. Part two follows young alumni who chose colleges related to their avocations—like art, business, engineering and others. The feature photography is done by Elisa Ferrari and focuses on the beautiful and varied architecture of the Claremont Colleges.
