Commemorating the Legacy Tribute Garden & Hearth: Memorial to the Enslaved
In the shadow of a building where people enslaved by William & Mary once worked and lived, a memorial to those same people will soon be erected so that their stories and their role in the university’s history over the course of 172 years may be brought to light. On May 26, the university hosted a ceremony to mark the beginning of construction on the memorial, to be completed in early 2022. Titled “Hearth: Memorial to the Enslaved,” the brick structure will resemble a fireplace and will feature the names of people who are known to have been enslaved by the university.

2021 Commencement: Jonathan Diaz-Ramos '21 & Vanessa Guzman '21
Vanessa Guzman ’21 and Jonathan Diaz-Ramos ’21 came to W&M with the unique challenges most first-generation students face – a lack of knowledge and guidance about the college experience along with worries about fitting in on campus that can induce feelings of isolation and loneliness. But Vanessa and Jonathan set out to change that. Together, they founded William & Mary’s First-Generation, Low Income (FGLI) support group, a network and resource hub to help students develop strategies to deal with the anxiety of being a first-generation student. Now, the FGLI community boasts more than 100 students who support and inspire each other every day. MB01QCI7NAHHHFX
