A Record 125 College Visits to Webb in 2016-2017

The Ivy League. Women’s Colleges. National Liberal Arts & Sciences. Art Schools. Science & Engineering. This year 125 colleges and universities from across the country and around the world will visit the Webb campus and meet with students and staff. Always an impressive list, this year more than any other, Webb is particularly honored by the number of selective colleges interested in Webb and its students.

Columbia and Cornell, Amherst and Williams, Wellesley and Smith, Stanford and Georgetown, USC and NYU, The Claremont Colleges, and so many others are embracing the opportunity to visit and share news about their campuses and academic programs. Webb will also welcome by year-end a number of institutions from the interesting cohort highlighted in Colleges That Change Lives, including Willamette University, Whitman College, Reed College, Ursinus College, University of Puget Sound and others. Even the much written about Minerva Schools at KGI has visited Webb this year to promote its one-of-a-kind, four-year, seven international cities undergraduate program.

“Every year I am so proud that the best colleges and universities in the world are excited to meet Webb students and learn about their goals and ambitions—and to find out what they might add to their campuses. We consistently have more schools visiting each year than we have students in the senior class. I always tell our students that we can’t take this generosity for granted. We all ride on the coattails (and accomplishments) of the Webb graduates who have come before,” said Hector Martinez, director of college guidance.

  • Stanford University Takes Stand Against Low Admit-Rate Frenzy
