If you come into the Sadler Center this Friday you will hear Chainsmokers blasting from the stereos and the chatter of students in line, waiting for free pancakes.

On a sunny afternoon in Colonial Williamsburg, William & Mary students can be spotted all along Duke of Gloucester Street, Colonial Williamsburg’s main thoroughfare. Joggers run laps to and from the Capitol Building; study groups sip coffee at the W&M bookstore; and in the fall, everyone enjoys cider at the Raleigh Tavern Bakery. If you’re […]
Between midterms and holidays, I haven’t written in a while. But something else I’ve been doing? Traveling! The coolest part about being abroad is having the world even more within reach. If you get over the Atlantic one day, I highly recommend you take advantage of the cheap flights and close proximity of new places. […]
As my last fall semester at William & Mary draws to a close, Iâm starting to accept the reality that Iâm almost a second semester senior, Iâm graduating in 6 months, and Iâll be moving to DC to start work in August. I am happy to have had made so many amazing memories, grateful for […]

One of the aspects I enjoy most about my role as both a graduate student and paraprofessional is the opportunity for professional development. While learning and studying the field of higher education, I am simultaneously gainingÂ professional experience as a graduate assistant in the Cohen Career Center. The opportunity to fulfill these dual roles was a […]
Wherever Anne Davis â16 was, those around her were sure to feel a burst of energy. Thatâs one of the reasons I selected her to serve as the Fellow for Hunger and Nutrition in the Office of Community Engagement and why I was so looking forward to working with her. I wasnât sure exactly where […]
Happy almost Thanksgiving! It definitely feels like fall here in Williamsburg. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the dining halls are serving pumpkin pie.

Hi All! I have some exciting news! The research lab that I direct has finally finished 6 weeks of collecting data. Yes, this calls for celebration.

This last week at Santhiram flew by with adventures in the medical records department (MRD), a large multi-departmental camp, and the casualty. Here is a glimpse of what I saw during my time in those departments. The emergency room equivalent in India is referred to as a casualty. All cases requiring immediate care arrive at […]
Not to put too fine a point on it, but can we all agree that 2016 has been a pretty terrible year? If nothing else, the American presidential election alone would have been enough to give 2016 this status of being hugely disappointing. No matter which party you sided with during the election, it seems […]
One of my favorite parts about living so close to Colonial Williamsburg is the eclectic, locally owned Aromas Coffeehouse. My favorite drinks and foods include the java chip hot chocolate, strawberry crepes and the âapple pieâ specialty drink. But more importantly, some of my favorite moments at W&M have happened in Aromas. I met my […]
After months of incessant news and media coverage, the day is finally here. Election Day.

After spending time in clinical departments for the past two months, I took a glance at my first non-clinical department last week.

When I first went to college at Bryn Mawr — two years before I transferred to William & Mary — I didnât want to be an English major. English had always been my favorite subject. If youâre a reader and writer, you already know the beginning of this story: the young child with their head […]
The following story is a small part of an interview I conducted with one of my fellow DC Semester Students, Jordan Taverner. Â -Brenna Cowardin â19 âI donât know if Iâve figured that out [who I am yet], but itâs definitely changed. Even in the last few weeks, figuring out what I want to do, and […]
Happy Halloween, everyone! This is my favorite holiday, so naturally, I celebrated byÂ doing the spookiest thing I can think of:Â registering for my last semester of coursework as an undergraduate. Boo! Later tonight, I’ll probably also go for a walk in Colonial Williamsburg, just to keep the Halloween vibes going and see if I can eavesdrop […]
Last week, I finished my observation of all the clinical departments at Santhiram General Hospital through a posting in Pediatrics. The Pediatrics department at Santhiram functions as three different but interconnected subgroups: NICU, Pediatrics OP, and the Pediatrics ward. The NICU, present on the ground floor of the hospital, specializes in newborn care. After OBGYN […]
Incredibly, next Tuesday is the first day of November. For my part, I am thinking about how quickly the fall semester is moving, but for prospective students who are hoping to transfer for the spring semester, that date is looming as the deadline for spring admissions. I still remember the process of putting together my […]
The Geology Department successfully completed its Fall 2016 Departmental Trip to Virginiaâs Eastern Shore last weekend, but the difference between Friday and Saturday were striking.

This past Friday professor Chitralekha Zutshi, and the DC Center, hosted a conference on Kashmir to discuss its history, politics, and representation. This was an absolutely incredible experience, so much so that Iâm going to take the next 500 words or so and lay it on you. The afternoon began with a panel featuring two […]
Anyone who knows me well knows that Halloween is by far my favorite holiday.
