Grieving the Loss of Springtime at W&M

Lately, I’ve been talking with students via Zoom. They’re expressing emotions that I relate with. That’s not normal. Often I relate to the emotions of students because I felt that some time ago and learned the life lessons associated. We’re all grieving loss — of springtime, of celebrations, of a sense of security and a loss […]

Williamsburg’s Colonial Climate: What Can Be Learned from Thomas Jefferson’s Data?

The coronavirus pandemic has turned the modern world on its head, and for the remainder of the 2020 spring semester William & Mary will teach its courses from a distance. This won’t be easy, and the instruction is not going to equal the in-class or the in-lab experience that would normally take place. As I […]

To the Class of 2020

When I left school for Spring Break I was brain-storming drafts of advice I wanted to give to current seniors. I wanted to summarize the beginning half of my freshmen year and provide hindsight on my senior year college process. However, due to recent circumstances, your college process will be unlike anyone else’s. I understand […]

COVID-19- Gratitude for New Routines

I’ve been thinking a lot the past week about what I care about. I think it’s a manifestation of my fear that I may lose something that I love or be unable to do things that give me comfort. I also let the “what if’s” creep into my thoughts. What if the worst-case scenario comes […]
