H. Thomas Watkins III '74 started a family legacy when he decided to attend William & Mary. His father, Hays Watkins, Jr. LL.D.

The Great Outdoors

One of my favorite things about William & Mary is all of the green space on and around campus. For me, spending time outside is a major source of stress relief.

Surprise!

Registration time has the tendency to bring surprises. Some of those surprises are welcome and others, not so much. One of the best things about creating a new schedule is the uncertainty associated with a new beginning. It’s kind of like an academic birthday!
