I’ve just finished my […]

Everyone’s all abuzz (or about to be) with acceptance letters. The turnaround is pretty quick, and before you know it, you’ll be entering Orientation. My journey was a little different as a spring transfer—my acceptance letter came in December and in just about a month I was standing in line waiting to take my W&M […]

W&M Students and VIMS: The Climate Corner

Family time can be hard to come by – parents are working, kids are in school all day and have extracurriculars all evening and night. At VIMS, school is in session – but after-hours, and for the whole family. The Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at VIMS hosts a Discovery Lab. Local families […]

Advice for My Old Transfer Self

Going to college for the first time is tough, but eventually you find your way. Transferring to a new school is obviously difficult, too, but at least you have some college experiences out of the way, right? That’s true to some extent, but nothing can fully prepare you for a new college—and I think that’s […]

Beginnings & Ends

As I near the end of my junior year here at W&M, I’ve started to become very nostalgic. Good friends will be leaving me soon and I’ve started coming across my “lasts.” As I look back at the incredible three years that I’ve had here, it’s tough to think back to my first memories of […]

I didn't think much about whether or not I'd give today, but the event did get me thinking about W&M means to me. I realized that when I think about everything I've been able to accomplish, everywhere I've been able to travel, and most importantly each of the unique people who has influenced me over the past 4 years, I thank William & Mary. If I hadn't chosen to join the Tribe, I know that many of these things would not have happened. So I donated for the opportunities that await each student, the community and friendships that will carry them through, and for the future of the College that I hope gets even better and brighter. #OneTribeOneDay @wmalumni @tridelta @reveilleacappella

Freshman year is a year that I will absolutely never forget. Before the first day of Orientation, I was a little worried about living in the smallest dorm on campus.
