at the Moment
As students at William & Mary, we have so many opportunities available to us! One of the more exciting opportunities that you may not know about are our joint degree programs at St Andrews and Columbia. St Andrews If you’ve seen a picture of a William & Mary student wearing a mysterious red robe, that […]
Hello Readers, Happy Valentine’s Day! By now, most, if not all Universities around the country should be back from a lovely winter break. Getting back from the holidays can be a bit of an adjustment, especially for students transferring into William & Mary at the Spring semester. We often get questions/there is often a misconception […]
A few years ago, I asked the students in the Aim 4 community leadership program to write down three ways they are different because of their community experiences and three ways community is different because they engaged. As I was searching for notes to use at this afternoon’s Aim 4 meeting, I found the students’ […]
Last Friday afternoon, 150 people gathered in New Town for the kick-off event to celebrate a new Williamsburg community initiative: #WMBGkind. It’s much more than a hashtag; it’s a way for people in our area to recognize, elevate, and foster kindness in daily life. This got me thinking about how kindness – and compassion – […]
Hey everyone, Welcome back to my blog! I hope you all had a great Winter Break and took some time to rest and relax. I spent most of mine driving back and forth from home (Northern Va) to good ol’ Williamsburg for work. I work as a server at a local restaurant. It got kind […]
I am reminded as I near the end of my graduate school application process of my transfer application to William & Mary. My writing quirk prevented me from being able to complete my application until the night before. No, this is not procrastination as one might think, but I simply cannot articulate what I want. […]
I was asked to speak at a Scholarship Luncheon during Homecoming Weekend where both donors and scholarship recipients would hear my unique story. Why W&M? What impact has my scholarship had on me & my community? I found writing my speech to be thrilling, and nerve-wracking, at the same time. Below is a video of […]
With prices of $85 per ticket, as well as an additional fee for parking, a day at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg is way out of the budget for most William & Mary students; however, it’s not uncommon to see hundreds of W&M students wandering the hunted mansions at Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream, or sitting down for […]
The 2019 Spring semester is underway, but before we (both students and faculty) get completely sucked into our courses we’re going to finish our 2019 Rock Music Oman program with a symposium and celebration on Wednesday, January 30th from 6 to 8 p.m. in McGlothlin-Street Hall 219. Everybody is invited as the event is open to […]
The 2019 Rock Music Oman program has traversed from Muscat through the mountains and on to the desert. Last week, we were tucked in at a desert camp in the Sharqiya Sands, a vast dune complex, for a day of rest and reflection. Our respite provided an excellent opportunity for us to find ourselves, literally. […]
I must say I’ll miss the Metro. The 7000 series was by far my favorite, with its tile-esque floors and electronic updates of stops ahead. After a bit of research, I’ve learned it is slowly replacing the more outdated 2000 and 6000 models. Perhaps commuting will be the sought-after mode of transportation in the near […]
1) Ambassadors have a vast wealth of knowledge. They possess expertise on both the health of their relevant region and geopolitical relations as a whole. Former Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon came in today, Tuesday, to chat with us about the United States’ changing role in the world. For two hours we talked on the subject, […]
The group was excited to begin our week of site visits this afternoon. Today we had the Pentagon, tomorrow the Eisenhower Executive Office Building/Capital Hill, and Wednesday the World Bank. Thursday we will be in-house for our final day, but we are all excited to hear from former FBI Director James Comey on “Principles v. […]
We’re back in Oman with the 2019 version of our Natural History and Contemporary Culture of Oman (a.k.a. Rock Music Oman) winter-break study program. It may be gray and wintery in Williamsburg, but the skies over Oman are blue and the temperature is close to perfect. Twenty-one intrepid William & Mary students left the States […]
Week one crescendoed with a day of networking, theory, and presentations. Twenty-one Tribe alumni met with the Foreign Policy group this morning to go over our Policy Memo assignments, before we broke bread (waffles) and talked about their jobs. I had a fascinating conversation about artificial intelligence (AI) with one attendee who works in the […]
First full day down. We enjoyed our morning panel on pertinent concern facing the U.S. in both the development and security fields, China. “Scramble for Influence: Economic and Security Policy for the U.S. and China” brought an incredible discussion from Scott Morris (Center for Global Development), Lindsey Ford (Asia Society Policy Institute), and Sabrina Tsai […]
Hello loyal readers of the William & Mary blogs! I hope you all have had a wonderful start to 2019. My name is Caleb Rogers and I’m a junior at William & Mary excited to be taking the “Foreign Policy: International Development and Security” class in D.C. this Winter Break! Until January 9th, I will […]
Tis’ the season, finals season. Inside Swemromas, awaiting my vanilla chai tea latte, I overheard a party of two catching up. One shared how she was studying on the third floor to which her friend gasped. I wasn’t as appalled though. Despite not knowing either party, I know that the third floor is reserved for […]
The fall semester of my freshman year is over! So, what you probably want to ask me now is, how was it? There is one word to describe it: busy! When I went on my tour of William & Mary last year, my tour guide continued to say that all of the students on campus […]
By Meghan Haslam, Global Research Institute Early last summer, 16 William & Mary undergraduate students peered out of dust-coated bus windows as they drove through the highlands of Guatemala en route to their field study on development theory. The group didn’t know what was to come as the vehicle rumbled over the rough roads. But […]

We admit it! We love our snow days here at William & Mary. They don’t happen that often, but when they do: campus looks absolutely magical. Here are some of our favorite things to do on a snow day: Have a snowball fight on the Sunken Garden. The more the merrier! Gather some friends (or […]

Hello Readers! So, it’s that anxiety-provoking time of year. Application decision time. The decision you hear back from William & Mary can be that of joy or disappointment. But regardless of what decision you receive, don’t lose hope. I actually initially applied to the university as a senior in high school, ultimately getting rejected. So, […]
Dear Readers, A week now after Thanksgiving, I just wanted to say I’m thankful for all the opportunities William & Mary has provided me thus far and all the lovely friends I’ve made here. As a transfer making friends can be a little bit more of a challenge. We often do not have the same […]
