Honoring Retiring Hilltoppers: Linda Weber
After five years at Hopkins, Linda Weber will retire from her position as Director of Strategic Marketing and Communication.
Weber’s role involved “overseeing all the publications, print and digital, at Hopkins.” Weber had many visible accomplishments such as “the launch of the @Hop weekly newsletter, the graphic and editorial redesign of Hopkins’ magazine, Views from the Hill, the website reconfiguration to allow for mobile devices, and an emphasis on demographic digital marketing for Admissions.” Weber’s favorite day of the school year was Orientation. “The incoming students are nervous and tentative, but their parents are just beaming and so proud. I usually tear up on that day,” she said. Weber also enjoyed the lunch Hopkins serves daily: “I have soup every day. They are amazing. It is really remarkable the variety of soups the chef comes up with—so many!” During her spare time, Weber enjoys many hobbies. “In the warm months, I swim half a mile a day. I also try to keep up with the latest books, movies, and new recipes,” she said. While thinking about her five years at Hopkins, Weber stated, “I’ll miss being in the midst of a really smart, curious and independent-thinking community that makes room for everyone.”
