at the Moment
This August, for the first time in a few years, I won’t be returning to William & Mary. My studies are complete, so I no longer have a reason to be in Williamsburg. Before I left campus in May, I ventured to the dock at Lake Matoaka, whispering a thank you to the university where […]

We Admit It! We’re loving summer here in Williamsburg, with all of the sunshine and warm weather that comes with it. While we still have over a month until the official first day of fall, August 1 (today!) technically marks the beginning of the 2017-2018 admission cycle. Why, you ask? Because on August 1, the […]
Hello lovely William & Mary (et al) community! I hope everyone is having a great summer, and not melting in the heat like I was when the AC broke in my office building the other day. (Yikes!) While I like to include everyone in my blog posts, this one is going out to all of the […]
Summer 2017 has been a summer of “firsts.” It was my first time on a plane, my first time out of the country, and my first time traveling alone. I took a taxi for the first time in my life, successfully navigated a confusing bus system in a strange city, and had entire conversations with […]

If you’ve talked to many students at William & Mary, you’ve likely noticed that it’s uncommon for them to be interested in a single field. Double-majoring, picking a minor, and choosing interdisciplinary fields are all common ways students choose in their quest to graduate as a well-rounded student. Film and Media Studies is a structured […]

It’s mid-summer, and it is time for geological fieldwork with my undergraduate research students. As I’ve written before, geologists commonly go to the field to collect their primary data, and for William & Mary geologists, summer is a prime time to gather field data for Senior Research projects. The prudent geologist wears pants in the […]

As I concluded my freshman year, I could easily name off a few seniors who gave me the best advice, served as the greatest inspirations, and whom I’ll be forever thankful for. I was already planning on staying on campus through graduation, and thought what better way to spend these last few days than among […]
