He said, “it seems like a regular title lol.” That was when I realized it would be […]

Seeing the Good in Our Mistakes

Every once in a while on this campus known for high achievers, I overhear or take part in conversations that are totally counter-cultural. People talk about how good it feels to share with others about times when they really messed up. I’ve seen this in several settings. Members of a class I taught last semester […]

Knickpoint on the Nottoway

Deep in the heart of Southside Virginia lies a bedrock outcrop of tremendous size. Quality outcrops are rare in the Piedmont, but between the communities of Victoria and Crewe the Nottoway River tumbles over sloping bedrock ledges making a dramatic knickpoint that exposes acres of granitic gneiss in the channel. The Nottoway River is a […]

Jump On Into Student Research

One of our summer highlights is a student research “shark tank.” Students work with staff and faculty mentors to hone an original idea, which then culminates in a pitch to “sharks” for funding (this year sharks included Drs. Steve Hanson, Dan Maliniak, Brad Parks, Jaime Settle and Mike Tierney). Student teams submitted proposals for research […]

What makes William & Mary special? If you ask Professor Del Negro, he'll tell you it's our approach to research and the multi-level lab - a sweet spot in higher education. "PIs like me, we’re here because we like students. We really like training undergraduate students. But in order to do that effectively and to keep our research at the top of our game, we need to have Ph.D. students as well."
The multi-level model is ‘what makes William & Mary special’
