at the Moment
This past week has been exhilarating and challenging and inspiring and raw. I hiked over 60 miles of El Camino de Santiago in Galicia, a region in Northern Spain. El Camino de Santiago is a famous pilgrimage to the grave of the disciple James in the town Santiago de Compostela. I spent 5 days hiking […]
The past month has been a blur as I’ve been away from campus most weekends doing geology with William & Mary students. I’m way behind getting these adventures posted, and this is the first in a series of posts intended to help me climb out of this virtual hole in the blogosphere. It’s been nearly […]
Prior to my departure from Williamsburg to New York, I was sure to email professors in advance to see if there were any assignment to be turned in prior to my sleep-deprived visit to the city that, coincidentally, never sleeps which reads: Professors, I have been selected to attend an incredible Women’s Leadership Conference hosted […]
We Admit It! This time of year is tremendously exciting, as we celebrate the newest members of the Tribe: the Class of 2021. We had the pleasure of meeting many of you during our Day for Admitted Students on Saturday, as well as at our most recent myWM Monday event. We look forward to hosting […]
This past weekend was Day for Admitted Students and, as always, it is one of the busiest, most fun days of the year. I love DFAS because I can walk across campus, from the Kaplan all the way to the Sunky G’s and see thousands of people hanging out and sharing their love for William […]
At first I did not think I was going to live on campus as I live less than an hour away. I figured I would just commute as I commuted for the community college and it was fine living at home. I am really glad I chose to live on campus, but I am still […]
This past weekend, prospective students and their families flocked to William & Mary to attend Day for Admitted Students. This annual event allows potential new students to explore campus, meet current students and faculty, and learn more about what the college has to offer. As a freshman, I volunteered during DFAS and helped direct families […]
Adjusting to college is hard and it might get even harder for transfer students as we are the “small number” in a bigger college campus. Have you ever wondered whether William & Mary would be your fit? No worries, you are not alone. I had the same concern before I attended W&M. Is this university […]
Tomorrow I am presenting a session on community engagement at Day for Admitted Students. I will also be celebrating ten years since I decided to attend William & Mary at my very own admitted students day in 2007. That’s right, it’s my aluminum anniversary with William & Mary. I have written before about how terrified I […]
I love discussion & collaboration & innovation, and I have often been labeled as an ambitious freshman, so when I heard that there was an opportunity to be a part of the university’s independently run TED Talk event (x=independently organized TED event) I couldn’t resist applying to be the Finance Chair of the Steering Committee. I […]
At William & Mary there is the opportunity to take classes of various topics ranging from Divas & Muses to Organic Chemistry to Diversity in the Workplace, a specialty class within the business school. I was nominated by an upperclassman, who often gives me great advice as I plan my educational career, for Diversity in […]

Hands down one of the most unified, spirited forces at William & Mary, are the most genuine, passionate athletes who stop at nothing to support both Tribe Football, and Tribe Basketball. I enjoyed my time managing for the Tribe Cheerleading team, and would not have asked for any other way to get introduced to the […]
Like many students, and people in general, I am scared, even terrified, of many things. Snakes, failure, the deep space. But in the more modern sense, I have this fear of missing out, the FOMO as my friends would say. When I first got into the Programme, I had already found a freshman year roommate, […]
Just don’t start any fires. That was the advice I told myself Wednesday, moments before hosting my first large-scale event as a graduate assistant for the Cohen Career Center. Since September, I had been planning the K-12 Education Interview Day, an event for school districts from across the state to visit campus and interview teacher candidates […]
After hitting submit it felt like my brain finally turned on. All throughout the application writing process I struggled to find the right words. I seemed to have forgotten all of my extra curricular activities and volunteer work. After my brain turned on and I got past the phase of wondering if I did enough […]
The weekend of the 2nd Annual Women’s Leadership Summit & Stock Pitch Competition, planned by those I consider my role models, had finally arrived. This three-day conference invited young women from 17 prestigious universities to compete a stock pitch competition. The four finalist teams for the stock pitch competition was comprised of undergraduate students of New York University, Brown […]
Staying involved on two campuses is one of the things I wish I could perfect. Among the few things that makes it hard to stay involved in Williamsburg while living in St Andrews, one being the ridiculous time difference and two being the whole not actually there in the physical, is the idea of fear […]
Every year, for the past decade or more, the sisters of Kappa Delta host their spring philanthropy event, Campus Golf. From 8am to 5pm this past Saturday, groups of friends dressed up in crazy costumes and danced across the Sunken Garden, tee-ing off and being caddied personally by a KD sister. Students from every corner of campus […]
Recently I volunteered to be a discussant at the Virginia Economics Association meeting. The paper I was asked to critique was “The Economic Impact of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy” by Dr. Brenda Ponsford, from Virginia Union University. (Yes, I got the “mad cow disease” paper.) Other than taking some Agricultural Economics courses and having had to […]
When I first transferred to William & Mary, a lot of my focus was on my academic work, community service and campus involvement. While I was focused on staying active in the community and on-campus, I almost forgot all about staying active in regard to my physical health! In my short time here, I discovered […]
A few months ago I got a text from my sorority little, a senior at William & Mary, asking me if I wanted to go on a road trip with her during the university’s spring break. Well, after many Skype planning sessions and inviting another friend to join the adventure, we planned our southern road […]
We Admit It! After meeting you on the road and here on campus, communicating with you via email and on the phone, and spending the past several weeks reviewing and discussing your applications, the time is finally here. All freshman admission decisions have been finalized and released. As we are posting this, decision notification emails for those who […]

We Admit It! It’s hard to put into words the absolute and unadulterated joy the members of our Admission Committee are feeling right now. 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 […]
The post Decisions, Decisions – #wm2021 (aka 2017 Regular Decision Admit Edition) appeared first on The William & Mary Blogs.
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 […]
