at the Moment
Even if you’re not willing to admit it, being an upperclassman in college makes everyone feel a little more important. You’re experienced in studying (read: cramming) for midterms, your major has been declared and you know exactly which classes to take (and which professors to avoid). Being older means you’re the wise one, the one […]
I spent the front end of Fall Break herding more than 100 geologists across the Blue Ridge at the 47th Virginia Geological Field Conference. It is an annual meeting of academics, professionals, students, and rockhounds that gather to learn about new geological research in the Commonwealth. It was a special trip for me as two of […]

About four years ago, I was brushing my teeth in a very small Ludwell Apartment bathroom when my college roommate told me she liked this guy also living in our apartment complex. I quickly finished brushing my teeth because I needed more details on this potential love interest. About a week ago, my roommate and […]
After the psychiatry department, I was assigned to the DVL department. When I first found out that I would be observing in the DVL department, I had no idea what DVL stood for; I had never heard of that acronym before. Apparently, it stands for Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy. Interestingly, when I searched ‘Dermatology, Venereology […]
In the span of just a few months I’ve gotten really good at packing myself up. I haven’t forgotten a toothbrush, a jumper, my peace of mind, and I’ve even put together all the pieces of my heart in two purple suitcases. Being abroad has brought me the wonderful opportunity to travel, even if it […]
Hi guys! Last year, my favorite weekend of the fall was Homecoming Weekend. After the first couple months were over, I was really excited to have a weekend filled with school spirit and football. Homecoming happens just as the leaves start to change and everything feels more like fall, which is my favorite time of […]
I am going to spend this blog telling you a little bit about my time observing in the psychiatry department in the Santhiram General Hospital. I had never shadowed a psychiatrist before so it was all the more interesting. Not only did I learn about various mental disorders, but I also got to listen to […]
During my freshman orientation in 2014, all of the incoming students received a checklist of 169.3 things to do at William & Mary. (In case you haven’t heard, William & Mary was chartered in 1693!) Amazingly, I have managed to hold onto this list for the past three years, pinning it on my wall at […]
Our Fall Geology Department field trip set out from Williamsburg to central Virginia, and the James River for a geological float trip down the river. The autumn weather was close to perfect, and our crew of 30+ students were ready for a fluvial adventure. We camped at Hatton Ferry, pitching our tents on a patch […]

Hey guys! This week I wanted to talk about my fears and hesitations that came along with transferring. Transferring to a new school going into my junior year was nerve-racking to say the least. The students in my year here had known one another for two whole years, formed networks, and acclimated to life in […]
Hi Everyone! Hoping you decide that William & Mary is your choice of transfer school, but regardless, the transfer process can seem overwhelming at times. You’re going to want to make sure that your transition to your new school is smooth and painless. A problem that you could potentially run into is being overwhelmed. As […]
As I had mentioned in my previous blog post, I have been working on writing a small e-book on the establishment of Bharosa, which is a support center for women and children in Hyderabad, India. More specifically, it’s an e-book on the commitment of Dr. Mamatha (the founder of an NGO named Tharuni) in ensuring […]
So, you want to transfer to William & Mary? Hi there, my name is Lauren, and I’m a senior here at W&M. I am and Asian and Middle Eastern Studies major with the Chinese Language and Literature minor, and I am on the Pre-Nursing track. I transferred here halfway through my freshman year from another […]
Hi guys, it’s Alfred. I am a senior studying history and government with a pre-law concentration here at William & Mary. I transferred fall 2016 from a liberal arts college in Pennsylvania. Life here at the Burg has simply been amazing! It is what I called, a true home away from home. One Tribe, one […]
Last week, I observed in the pulmonary medicine department in Santhiram and continued working on writing an e-book on Bharosa. Here is a little bit of what I have done. Pulmonary Medicine and Issues of Tuberculosis The general set up of pulmonary medicine is very similar to that of general medicine. Patients are seated in […]
Hi! My name is Caroline and I am a senior here at the university! I transferred to William & Mary in fall 2016 from a small liberal arts college in the Northeast. For my first blog post, I’d like to share some things about myself and how I have adjusted to life here in Williamsburg! […]
Hi Everyone! Considering this is my first blog post, I wanted to start off with an introduction and a little bit about my decision to transfer to William & Mary. I was born and raised in Rockville, Maryland and have always been an avid tennis player. Currently, at W&M I am double majoring in Government […]
Within just the past week of observing at Santhiram, not only have I seen outpatient (OP) of general medicine but I have also seen a C-section delivery of twins (the ~lame~ reason why the title says “lively”). General Medicine The general medicine department in Santhiram is set up so that patients register and sit in […]
I want to start off this blog by telling you a little bit about travelling for twenty-five hours. The journey was very bizarre. Spending so many hours in an airplane was as if I was living in a world where all I do is sit, eat, stretch, talk, and try to sleep. Simply put, it […]
The Joint Degree Programme has many nuances that are not immediately recognisable to the prospective student eye. For example, JDP students don’t have to take COLL100 or 150 their first year at William & Mary; the Programme seminar run by Professor Liz Barnes covers both writing and research requirements. JDP students also have different general […]
After a long summer away from my writing desk, aka whatever medium allows me to write with my laptop on my lap, I have returned with more worldly wisdom and over-easy eggs benedict sorts of guidance. St Andrews doesn’t start up again until September 18th, and I have exactly one week from the moment I […]
Classes start in just a few days, and I am fortunate to have had a great summer! It started with my study abroad program to Singapore & Hong Kong, then continued as I visited family in Spain, and is coming to an end as I welcome international students to campus. I feel as though my […]
Tomorrow, fall semester at W&M will begin and the campus will be filled with nervously excited students attending their first day of classes. But, this semester, I will not be one of those students. Although I will still be a nervously excited student, I will not be sharing my summer experiences or my class schedule […]
I am anticipating a series of questions come the beginning of the Fall semester like “what did you do over the summer?” and “whoa, how was Singapore and Hong Kong?!” I am very excited to share my phenomenal study abroad experience as many moments were surreal, and well-spent. From Universal Studios, to Port Tours, to […]
A couple years ago, while I was walking through Wren toward DoG Street I discovered a William & Mary secret: she is you and you are her. You are William & Mary and she is you. When you succeed so does she. When you hurt, she hurts as well and when you rejoice, in celebration of […]
