The summer research season has arrived at William & Mary. This year, I’m starting a new project in central Virginia with a team of undergraduate students.

On the evening of March 26th, I realized that I was no longer enrolled as a student at William & Mary. I discovered this when the William & Mary online portal wouldn’t let me register for classes. Not understanding at first what was wrong, I immediately called the registration office to determine why I was […]
My 18 month old daughter has been learning how to use a fork. As often happens with anything new, she’s had a lot more failures than successes. One day at supper, she was especially focused on getting strawberries (which have the perfect texture for a little fork user), onto the fork and into her mouth. […]
Every spring my Earth Structure & Dynamics class visits the Appalachian Mountains on our weekend field trip.

It’s easy to achieve the first goal, as over the course of the weekend […]

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.

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 […]

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.
