at the Moment
On March 30th, I had the opportunity to participate in the Women’s Stock Pitch & Leadership Summit at William & Mary’s Mason School of Business alongside Jay Thompson, Alden Wagner, and Vivian Xi. In 2017, I attended the conference and wrote an article about it. I was also part of the stock pitch team in […]
Hey everyone! This week, we’re doing a special edition of the transfer blog – a joint post from all three of us! As some of you may already know, during admissions season, William & Mary sends postcards to a handful of potential incoming freshmen. In admissions, we like to call these “Likely’s!” These Likely’s carry […]
Last week, the Office of Community Engagement hosted our annual celebration of active citizenship. We invite all students, faculty, staff, and community partners to come together in recognition of the important work of the past year. No blog post can encapsulate the many things to be celebrated, so I am just going to highlight four […]
I work at a college for my day job, which means in a way, since I first began at William & Mary, I’ve actually never left college. I’ve worked at three different universities, and William & Mary will always hold a special place as it was where I first learned how higher education could be […]
Do you love William & Mary, but are worried about coming because we don’t offer the exact major you want? There is a solution! With a little paperwork, you can design your own major to fit your needs! How do I do this? Start by finding a faculty member who can be your advisor, hopefully […]
Last week much of the William & Mary Geology department hit the road again en route to the Geological Society of America’s Southeastern Section meeting in Charleston, South Carolina. It’s an annual spring ritual for W&M Geology students as this meeting is well-timed and can be the perfect venue in which to present research to […]
Hey everyone! I hope application season has been treating you well! I remember this time of year my freshman year…applications looming in my mind while midterms started really picking up steam. It’s easy to feel bogged down by all your deadlines so remember to take some time and do some self-care! I want to dedicate […]

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 […]

We Admit It! We wish we could send good news to all of our wonderfully talented applicants. Unfortunately, the small class sizes that make William & Mary appealing to so many also forces us to make several tough decisions among our very qualified students. As a result, we are not able to admit all of the […]

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 […]
Overheard in Committee: “Let’s see those mids!” We admit it! Senior year is an exciting time. With prom right around the corner, spending time with treasured friends, and of course college applications, it can be easy to let grades slide by the wayside. While midterm grades oftentimes come in after your application has been submitted, […]
As William & Mary captures a new school of fish — the Class of 2023, of course — I would like to give some insights on how to make the most out of the COLL curriculum. You will begin your journey by understanding communication at the university level. In COLL 100, students will use methods (e.g., […]
One of my favorite stories to tell people is why I chose to attend William & Mary. And that reason starts off with a story about snow. Being from Atlanta, I have not seen a lot of snow (unless you count the Snowpocalypse of 2014 as we Atlantans call it!) So, when I began looking […]
Yorktown’s most famous siege took place in 1781, when American and French troops surrounded General Cornwallis and the British forces. Ultimately, the British capitulated and the American Revolution was effectively won at Yorktown – it was a big deal. For more than a decade now, William & Mary geologists have repeatedly sieged Yorktown during the […]
By Henry Crossman ’19 The best universities do two things well: they create knowledge and they share it with the world. At William & Mary I’ve experienced this in three ways: student-faculty teams, applied knowledge to real world problems and working across disciplines. I became part of a student-faculty team at the Global Research Institute […]
By Aili Espigh ’17 I first heard about the Global Research Institute as a research opportunity on campus that paid. And while I first came for the resume opportunity, I stayed for three years because of the belief that the work done at the Institute was truly impactful in shaping the way policymakers found solutions […]
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 – […]
