Sorry that this title is a little (edit: extremely) misleading. If you’re here to get a summer internship, I can tell you now you’re on the wrong website. All I may do is share the amazing (first part) of my summer while interning in New York City, and (best part) no nepotism involved. How I […]
On August 4th, 2008, I published my first post on William & Mary Blogs, Living the High Life chronicled that summer’s field research with a crew of William & Mary geologists on Utah’s High Plateaus. 10-years have come-and-gone – yikes!

It was a busy second week for students participating in the NIAHD Pre-College Summer program! Between daily site visits, July 4th festivities, and a variety of evening events, time is flying by. It’s hard for me to believe that we have just one more week left in the first session. With the end of the […]
This summer, I’m back in the ‘burg working as a RPA with the NIAHD program at W&M! (Wow, that’s a lot of acronyms.) I will be a Residential Program Assistant during the National Institute of American History and Democracy’s Pre-College Summer Program. (Okay, now that’s just a mouthful.) I’ve written about my previous experience with […]

This year we’re working to better understand when significant tectonic events […]

My lack of updates can be […]

What is rough is my first year at William & Mary. What is not so rough is the completion of my CAMS minor in December! It also happens that I had to decide what major is not only job-worthy but interesting. Despite my struggles in my beginning computer science classes, I am happy to find […]
“Knowing the value of people sharing their experiences is what drives me to be a peer advisor.” -Caroline Kirk ‘21 There are so many things to become involved in on our beautiful William & Mary campus, why do some people choose the Peer Advising program?

My final week at William & Mary was a whirlwind of graduation festivities. On the last day of classes, my friends and I lined up with the rest of the Class of 2018 to ring the Wren bell, a popular senior year tradition. I also submitted the last paper (ever!) of my undergraduate career. After […]
With the close of the school year, it is the beginning of college visits. When I was in high school, I attended 19 college tours (I know, I’m a bit crazy). I visited schools from Boston to Atlanta, and everywhere in between. After each college tour, I was even more confused. All of the colleges […]

It’s been almost two weeks since I walked across the stage at graduation, shook hands, and received my diploma. Two weeks and it still doesn’t feel real. It happened though. Thousands of families watched as our Commencement ceremony began and siblings and faculty saw me miraculously not trip walking across the stage. So it definitely […]

Crim Dell is an iconic little pond tucked away in a forest glade in the middle of William & Mary’s campus. Its arched wooden bridge is frequently described as the most romantic spot on campus.

Welcome back to D.C. as told through one News & Media student’s experience. Before this week began, our TA Alicia told us that class days would be “crazy (and sweaty) but worth it.” She couldn’t have said it better.
