Despite the cold, winter night, the Holiday Party lights up the room with a warmth that Webbies feel through laughter, hot cocoa, and live performances. A chance for the whole community to gather and bond, the week ends with a perfect touch of the Christmas spirit.


As the days get colder and the nights grow darker, the Webb campus gets ready to welcome back the cheer with touches of the holiday spirit. With only three weeks between Thanksgiving and winter break, the prefect council has been working hard to keep the joyous mood going strong. 

From the Giving Tree in the dining hall and cheery lunch donations to the enthusiastic charity dances at the loop, the prefect council has been keeping in mind the giving spirit amongst the holiday fun. Partnering with the Foothill Family Shelter, San Antonio Foundation, Well Connected, Isaiah’s Rock, and HOPE Partners, we seek to give back to the local charities in the area, extending the spirit to the community. 

“We’ve been donating to local charities this week along with the Toy Drive, which has been a tradition since 1990,” said Will Allan, co-Head Advisor for Dorm Prefects and humanities faculty. 

With the giving spirit brightening up the week, the culmination of these highlights is the annual Holiday Party. Caroling, cocoa, and Christmas come together; the party falls on a Sunday night, giving a chance for students and faculty to experience the classics of holiday celebration together. From competitive gingerbread house contests, the appearance of Webb’s band, The Tonics, and to Dr. Brendan Beikmann, science department faculty taking the spotlight dressed up as Santa once again, the night is filled with unmistakable excitement as everyone embraces the festivities of the holiday season.
