How has your liberal arts education helped you figure out what you want to do? Did what you want change dramatically during your time at W&M?

Does Anybody Have a Map?

In order to explain why I chose William & Mary, it’s probably first worth mentioning that I am an extremely indecisive person. So, when I began the college application process four years ago, I was apprehensive. I had no idea how to go about choosing a school, and I was stressed about making what seemed […]
