  • The Week @ Webb - Together in January

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a periodic photojournal of events on and off Webb's campus. Did it feel like January lasted 31,000 days instead of just 31? I know that for me, it's important to spend as much time as I can with other people when life gets really busy. We all do better when we surround ourselves with friends and family and that's what I tried to capture in this latest gallery.

    John Scalzi '87 writes a touching and thoughtful remembrance in the Los Angeles Times of science fiction and fantasy icon Ursula K. Le Guin, who passed away this week at the age of 88. Le Guin--a touchstone to many writers and readers and the author of the Earthsea fantasy series--she was the recipient of multiple awards including the Nebula, Newbery, Hugo, National Book Award and others. Stephen King calling her "one of the greats," wished her "godspeed into the galaxy." She was the author of more than 20 novels, 12 books of poetry, 100 short stories and more.

  • The Week @ Webb - 2018 Preview

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a periodic photojournal of events on and off Webb's campus. It’s always exciting to celebrate a new year, and while it would be fun to reminisce on all that we achieved and learned in 2017, I thought I’d take a look forward to what’s to come in 2018. The winter and spring seasons at Webb are packed with exciting events and beautiful occasions. This gallery shows off a lot of what makes these next few months so enjoyable, from new elective courses like The Long Novel and Faith Narratives of Holy Cities to winter hikes in the snow and bountiful wildflower blooms on campus. I hope you enjoy the gallery.
