at the Moment
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. So, during my college search, I really prioritized finding a school with a beautiful campus. Now that the weather is (finally!) starting to warm […]
Every year I get to host our Celebration of Active Citizenship which recognizes the many ways students have prioritized community in the past year. While the cupcakes and awards are pretty great, one of my favorite parts of the celebration is listening to students reflect on their community experiences. This year our student speaker was Andrew […]
At the end of my first year at William & Mary, I had this strange realization that I had completed half of my time in Williamsburg. And as this year comes to an end, I am starting to get that same strange feeling that I am going to turn my last essay for St Andrews […]
A lot of my friends are currently navigating the world of interviews and/or leaving their current jobs. This can be pretty scary, especially since most of my peers are still at their first job out of college. I’m no expert on the subject, and I’m not going to pretend to be, but luckily I know […]
Among the most frequently asked questions when giving a campus tour is about the workload at William & Mary. “Will I be able to handle the work?” “Am I able to thrive here?” “Is William & Mary a sweatshop?” (NO!) Two years ago, I was debating on the same issue and had similar concerns with […]
“Is it hard to give them back?” That’s almost always the first question I am asked when someone learns that I foster cats and kittens for our local Heritage Humane Society. Of course it is hard to say goodbye to faces like this, but it is also right. Hard but right is one of the […]
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! With this in mind, some of our Exec Board members wanted […]
Over the years I’ve used this blog to report on geologic research in a format that’s intended to be both accessible and digestible by a wide audience. This post highlights an exciting new research finding, and explores the intriguing possibilities for William & Mary that could come from this ground-breaking discovery. First, a little background: […]

This weekend I had the privilege of joining the thousands of people in Washington D.C. to March For Our Lives. I am grateful for the amazing experience, not only because I spoke out about a cause I care about, but also because I had the support of my friends and classmates from W&M. No matter […]
Why choose to attend William & Mary? I’ll offer up two reasons to attend William & Mary: people & places. It’s the people that make William & Mary a distinctive and supportive community. At W&M you’ll be afforded the opportunity to learn, study and conduct research, not just on our winsome campus, but at places […]
It’s nearly course registration time again! Confused? Have questions? There is always BOB to guide you through the process. Who’s this Bob, you say? The invisible PA who brings doughnuts to the meetings? Nope. BOB is a way of approaching class registration so that it is the fun experience it was always meant to be. […]

We finally get to share the great news with you, the people who have so impressed and inspired us over the course of this admission cycle. Yes, “Good Things” means what you think […]

We Admit It! We wish we could send good news to all of our wonderfully talented applicants. Unfortunately, the small class size that makes 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 students who […]

We Admit It! This is the hardest part of our job — sending bad news to bright, talented applicants like you. You can Admit It! You’re surprised, upset, disappointed, confused, angry – maybe all of the above. All of these emotions are both natural and justified. This is not the outcome you were hoping for, and it’s not the decision we […]

Tonight’s the night, Class of the Square Root of 4,088,484 (no calculators allowed, please)! Final admissions decisions are coming, and there are so many hours to go before your results go LIVE! April 1st becomes the thing of the past for William & Mary. If you could not believe decisions come to you a week […]
If you’re a high school freshman, or a potential transfer student, you’re probably eagerly awaiting your decision letter from William & Mary. I know when I was waiting for my decision letter, or email, I was sitting on my couch watching Veronica Mars waiting for a confirmation email on something I ordered from Amazon. As […]
As an avid sports fan, this is one of my favorite times of the year. March Madness features the best college basketball teams in the country competing for a National Championship. Spring Training allows Major League Baseball teams (Go O’s!) to put the finishing touches on their rosters before Opening Day on March 29. Free […]

We have just passed the midterm, and spring break is behind us. In my informal polling, most students simply headed home, to write papers, prepare for midterm exams (I schedule them for after break), sleep, and eat home cooking. Faculty use the break for research, maybe some travel, though those of us in my corner […]
As you might expect, Peer Advisors come from all walks of life. Accordingly, everyone’s reason for joining the PA program is different. We asked our Executive Board to share why they chose to get involved! Andrew: “I think my favorite part of peer advising is seeing the difference I can make firsthand in a new […]

In order to explain why I chose William & Mary, it’s probably first worth mentioning that I am an extremely indecisive person. So, when I began the college application process four years ago, I was apprehensive. I had no idea how to go about choosing a school, and I was stressed about making what seemed […]
Learning at William & Mary does not just happen in the classroom. A top-notch liberal arts education like W&M teaches you how to think the unthinkable and solve the unresolvable. It is then up to you to test these learnings in real life. During my time at W&M, I am fortunate to intern at different […]
In early January, with two of my research students, we escaped winter’s cold by heading to the Sultanate of Oman for a week of field research. Oman is a delightful place, and even more so in January with its warm temperatures and cheery sunshine. What follows is the first of three posts that will highlight […]

How did you spend Spring Break 2018? Although, a getaway is not a mandatory component of this week-long holiday, it appears that many take the advantage of ideal weather in states like Florida, and Hawaii, just to spend their days on the beach. I had an unconventional ‘getaway’ to Baltimore, Maryland. Through Branch Out Alternative Breaks, […]
My first stay in Williamsburg was before I knew anything about William & Mary I was visiting Busch Gardens with my family and was roaming around Colonial Williamsburg when I noticed that bricks were everywhere. I continued onto the W&M campus where I noticed more bricks. Even the Integrated Science Center had bricks. That was […]
