Leaving the Comfort Zone: My Extracurricular Experience

Any William & Mary student can confirm, you can’t go through your four years here without getting involved in some sort of completely new extracurricular activity. That’s definitely been the overarching theme of my experience at William & Mary – most, if not ALL of my extracurriculars are things I wasn’t involved in during high school. “There’s […]

Paddle Trip Report 1 – Through the Foothills

We successfully completed our 8-day paddle trip from the foothills of the Blue Ridge to Williamsburg. It was all the adventure I’d hoped for. In this first of three posts, I report on the highlights, rough spots, and geology along our journey.  This was a personal trip completed with my old friends and goodtime buddies, but […]

“Not All Who Wander Are Lost”

This summer I got to check off something off my bucket list, and get class credit.  For five weeks I studied abroad in India.  When people ask me where in India I studied, most of them are surprised to learn that India is divided into states, just like the US.  I spent most of my […]

Who needs analysis?

I talked recently with a parent, who, quite understandably, did not comprehend the murky world of determining how the federal government (and the aid office, by extension) can arrive at what seems to preposterous amount of expected contribution. She provided me with a spreadsheet which showed all family income being consumed by household expenses, with […]

The Franklin Project and William & Mary — Civic Leadership for the 21st Century

Recently I walked the Laurel Falls Trail in majestic Great Smoky Mountains. In awe of the landscape and enamored with the Aspen Institute’s Franklin Project, I contemplated the future of national service in America. While climbing the mountain I reminisced on the past holding in high regard the brave efforts of government and individuals who made what […]

Room-inating: The Freshman Roommate Experience

I still remember what one of my freshman hall mates said to me on our walk back from taking the honor code pledge in the Wren building during New Student Orientation. “Dorms are literally the weirdest idea. You essentially take 100 or so 18 year olds who don’t know each other and put them in […]

Don’t Let Financial Concerns Stop You

While discussing my work with some friends over dinner last night, one of them asked the first question that often comes to mind when we talk about alternative breaks: “How do students pay for these trips? They must be expensive, right?” When students participate in Branch Out alternative breaks, they partner with community members (who […]

Three Hours South of Disney World: The Out-of-State Experience

I’ll never forget the moment when I finally asked my hall mate where “NOVA” is. “Northern Virginia, duh.” During New Student Orientation my freshman year at William & Mary, I got very used to conversations like this: “I’m from NOVA.” “Me too. Where did you go to high school?” “Woodson. Go Cavaliers.” “I went to […]

Advice from a (somewhat) recent graduate

The first time I felt old, like really old, was when I met about twenty William & Mary students on the steps of the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C in June. The students were all part of the D.C. New Media Institute, an incredible class that I both took and T.A.ed as an undergraduate […]

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

Earlier this year I made a promise to myself to be more timely with my posts.  I wanted to carve out an hour a week to wipe my fingers across the keyboard of my Dell laptop and hope something fit for public consumption came out.  Well, as the title of this post suggests, time sort […]

A Journey Thirty Years in the Making

In 1985 I enrolled at William & Mary. I remember bits of that summer day in which my mother and I made the journey from our home in Albemarle County (west of Charlottesville) to college in Williamsburg.  That seems a long time ago. During the past thirty years I have made the journey from Albemarle […]
