For this #WrenCrushWednesday we're going inside the Sir Christopher Wren Building & taking a look at the Great Hall.⁣ (📸: @noellabela1214)⁣ —⁣ —⁣ —⁣ [Image Description: A long room stretches away from the camera. Dark wood paneling covers the bottom half of the walls to the left and right before meeting in the middle of the far wall. This wall features a large brick fireplace in the center and more dark wood paneling extends upward to the ceiling from the fireplace. The top half of the walls are white and feature three arches on both the left and right sides. Light pours through the arches giving the room a bright feeling. The walls meet a high, white ceiling. Wooden benches line the left and right sides of the floor in rows leaving an aisle down the center through which an ornamental carpet is visible. On the walls are oil paintings of important people in the university's distant history. The largest portrait, that of Queen Mary II, hangs above the impressive fireplace.]

Here comes the sun 🌞 #wmInSpring⁣ —⁣ —⁣ —⁣ [Image Description: A large expanse of green lawn spans the bottom half of the image. Half a dozen tall trees reach spindly branches up toward the sky. The trees are beginning to show signs of spring with bright green leaves on their branches. In the distance, the red brick Sir Christopher Wren Building is barely visible through the tree branches. A student, small next to the looming trees, is walking on a brick pathway that bisects the lawn. The pale blue sky is interrupted by a spot of white: the brightly shining sun. It causes the trees to appear almost as though they're glowing with light and casts long shadows on the grass. A pair of lens flares in the center reinforces the sunny feeling of the image.]

Happy Earth Day! 🌎 Did you participate in any of W&M Sustainability's Earth Week activities? ⁣ —⁣ —⁣ —⁣ [Image Description: The sky forms a blurred greyish-blue background for a picturesque scene: a cluster of thin brown branches take up the left half of the image. Pale green leaves sprout along the ends of each branch section before giving way to white flowers. Each petal of the flowers has a little red spot at its tip, adding another subtle pop of color to the scene. Perched on one of the flowers in the center of the image is a butterfly. Its underside is facing the camera so the full design of its wings isn't entirely visible, but faint lines along the wings & little spots of red and pale yellow at the bottom of each wing still show through.]

We're a fin of this pun - it's pretty sharp. 🦈 Thank you to everyone who gave on #OneTribeOneDay, your support will have an immediate impact on campus and beyond.⁣ (📸: @wmalumni ) ⁣ —⁣ —⁣ —⁣ [Image Description: A large sign on the right-hand side of the image shows the outline of a shark head. In big bold letters it reads, "Shark Upon the Gale" – a twist on the lyrics of Alma Mater "hark upon the gale." Below the large letters is a smaller lettering of " #OneTribeOneDay." To the left of the sign is a large inflated circle on the Sunken Garden. It's blue and almost looks like an inflatable pool, but it's actually a soft landing zone for what's happening in the center of the ring: A person wearing a helmet complete with facemask sits astride a large mechanical shark, gripping onto the shark with legs and hand. The mechanical shark is captured mid-buck, like a mechanical bull, and its pink mouth is open to display a toothy smile.]

Gloves and belt of white stand out against the crimson jackets. A red beret and rifle complete their kit. Between the guards is a large wreath on a simple stand. Tucked amongst the wreath's greenery are flowers in orange and red hues to represent the official colors of Virginia Tech.]

Nighttime at the Wren Building 😍#WrenCrushWednesday⁣ (📸: @brendanswitts)⁣ —⁣ —⁣ —⁣ [Image Description: Photographed at an artistic angle are the Sir Christopher Wren Building and the Lord Botetourt statue. The statue is in the foreground and is comprised of a white stone "plinth" with a bronze statue of a man on top. The dark patina on the statue makes it slightly difficult to discern from the dark blue of the night sky in the background. A red brick path surrounds the statue and leads behind it toward the Wren Building. The Wren Building is a long historical building comprised of more red bricks, numerous rectangular windows which are trimmed in white, two large, white doors, a slanted black roof, white dormers and a white bell tower. Atop the bell tower sits the iconic W&M weathervane. The building is brilliantly illuminated by several street lamps set along the surrounding pathways so that the red of the bricks and the green of the grass stand out even at night. Four large trees sit on either side of the main pathway between the statue and the Wren Building.]

We hope you enjoyed our April Fools' story. 😂 While we aren't seriously pursuing one billion ampersands by 2020, our appreciation of this stylish (not to mention, space-saving) symbol remains. That's one reason why we support A&W Restaurants in their quest to bring back the & as the 27th letter of the alphabet: http://www.awrestaurants.com/ampersand-campaign
Inspired by For the Bold, W&M's campaign to raise $1 billion dollars by 2020, the university has announced its boldest move yet: to fully commit to the ampersand as the official replacement for the word “and” for all time coming. Learn more: https://www.wm.edu/april-1/index.php

Should I Study Abroad?

I am currently a little over a month into my semester studying abroad in Wollongong, Australia. Life studying abroad in Australia is probably 10% marvelous adventures, and 90% just living life like an average Australian. That being said, I’m so glad to have the opportunity to take part in everyday life here because, though the […]

The reasons I grew to love W&M

To be honest, there were only a handful of reasons why I chose to attend W&M. For starters, W&M is well-respected in the academic community, as it’s considered a “public Ivy League school.” Once I received my acceptance letters—no, I didn’t get into all the schools I applied to—and made my decision, I realized that […]
