at the Moment
Within just the past week of observing at Santhiram, not only have I seen outpatient (OP) of general medicine but I have also seen a C-section delivery of twins (the ~lame~ reason why the title says “lively”). General Medicine The general medicine department in Santhiram is set up so that patients register and sit in […]
I want to start off this blog by telling you a little bit about travelling for twenty-five hours. The journey was very bizarre. Spending so many hours in an airplane was as if I was living in a world where all I do is sit, eat, stretch, talk, and try to sleep. Simply put, it […]
The Joint Degree Programme has many nuances that are not immediately recognisable to the prospective student eye. For example, JDP students don’t have to take COLL100 or 150 their first year at William & Mary; the Programme seminar run by Professor Liz Barnes covers both writing and research requirements. JDP students also have different general […]
After a long summer away from my writing desk, aka whatever medium allows me to write with my laptop on my lap, I have returned with more worldly wisdom and over-easy eggs benedict sorts of guidance. St Andrews doesn’t start up again until September 18th, and I have exactly one week from the moment I […]
Classes start in just a few days, and I am fortunate to have had a great summer! It started with my study abroad program to Singapore & Hong Kong, then continued as I visited family in Spain, and is coming to an end as I welcome international students to campus. I feel as though my […]
Tomorrow, fall semester at W&M will begin and the campus will be filled with nervously excited students attending their first day of classes. But, this semester, I will not be one of those students. Although I will still be a nervously excited student, I will not be sharing my summer experiences or my class schedule […]
I am anticipating a series of questions come the beginning of the Fall semester like “what did you do over the summer?” and “whoa, how was Singapore and Hong Kong?!” I am very excited to share my phenomenal study abroad experience as many moments were surreal, and well-spent. From Universal Studios, to Port Tours, to […]
A couple years ago, while I was walking through Wren toward DoG Street I discovered a William & Mary secret: she is you and you are her. You are William & Mary and she is you. When you succeed so does she. When you hurt, she hurts as well and when you rejoice, in celebration of […]
The post Welcome Class of 2021 (and 2020,2019)- You Chose Her and She Chose YOU! appeared first on The William & Mary Blogs.
This August, for the first time in a few years, I won’t be returning to William & Mary. My studies are complete, so I no longer have a reason to be in Williamsburg. Before I left campus in May, I ventured to the dock at Lake Matoaka, whispering a thank you to the university where […]
We Admit It! We can’t wait for the members of the Class of 2021 to arrive. Next Friday is Move-In Day for our entering students, marking the first time that the Class of 2021 will officially be able to call Williamsburg their home. Move-In Day is an exceptionally exciting day, where current William & Mary students, […]
Hello Admit It! readers! Jon and Erin here again. As William & Mary students, we have had plenty of opportunities to try out and explore different eateries on and around campus. Here are our thoughts on just a few of our favorites! The Daily Grind At the heart of William & Mary’s campus, the Daily Grind is […]
I spent Wednesday July 26 learning from an amazing and dynamic group of young world leaders, the Mandela Washington Fellows, at their Africa Ideas Summit. This group of 25 young women and men representing 18 African nations each spoke on their plans and projects to better their communities. These leaders inspired us with brilliant ideas and concrete action steps. During each of […]

We Admit It! We’re loving summer here in Williamsburg, with all of the sunshine and warm weather that comes with it. While we still have over a month until the official first day of fall, August 1 (today!) technically marks the beginning of the 2017-2018 admission cycle. Why, you ask? Because on August 1, the […]
Hello lovely William & Mary (et al) community! I hope everyone is having a great summer, and not melting in the heat like I was when the AC broke in my office building the other day. (Yikes!) While I like to include everyone in my blog posts, this one is going out to all of the […]
Summer 2017 has been a summer of “firsts.” It was my first time on a plane, my first time out of the country, and my first time traveling alone. I took a taxi for the first time in my life, successfully navigated a confusing bus system in a strange city, and had entire conversations with […]
William & Mary has several different majors suitable for those interested in mathematics. A student could choose to major in applied or standard mathematics, and then choose one of their concentrations, or choose to major in math for pre-college teaching. Another option students have is Computational and Applied Mathematics and Statistics (CAMS), which uses an interdisciplinary […]
It can be tough to completely express yourself through a paper application – paper applications are two-dimensional, after all. Our Admission Office recognizes this and gives students a chance to add another personal layer to their application. On-campus interviews provide you with the opportunity to make your application three-dimensional. Each summer, the Admission Office hires sixteen rising seniors to conduct […]

I’m in Williamsburg for the summer, and I cannot contain my joy. After trotting the globe for 5 months, I am excited to be back at my favorite place. When I’m not working at the Dean of A&S and giving tours to prospective students, I have been exploring Williamsburg and readjusting to life in America. These […]
William & Mary has an illustrious history. It is Virginia’s oldest college, the second institution of higher education founded in British North America prior to the American Revolution, and it has the oldest college building in the nation. It is also the only university in the nation granted a royal charter directly from British monarchy, […]
If you’ve talked to many students at William & Mary, you’ve likely noticed that it’s uncommon for them to be interested in a single field. Double-majoring, picking a minor, and choosing interdisciplinary fields are all common ways students choose in their quest to graduate as a well-rounded student. Film and Media Studies is a structured […]
We Admit It! Summer is a wonderful time of year. Williamsburg is gorgeous, summer visits are in full swing, and we have welcomed a new group of senior interviewers who are currently busy meeting with the potential applicants for the Class of 2022. As we begin to turn our focus to next year’s applicant pool, […]
It’s mid-summer, and it is time for geological fieldwork with my undergraduate research students. As I’ve written before, geologists commonly go to the field to collect their primary data, and for William & Mary geologists, summer is a prime time to gather field data for Senior Research projects. The prudent geologist wears pants in the […]
After 146 days, 50 cities, 21 hostels, 19 plane rides, 10 countries, 8 languages, 3 time zones, 2 continents, I am finally back in the US! Studying abroad in Spain has been one of the craziest, best and most challenging seasons of my life. I intersected with people from all over the world. From Australians […]
Computer science is concerned with the systematic study of algorithms for describing and transforming information. At William & Mary, students can choose to either major or minor in the program, and graduate students may pursue a master’s degree and PhD. The university also offers a five-year program, leading to the one-year master’s degree. The minor requires […]
Remarks prepared for the opening session of the SCHEV Civic Engagement Education and Assessment Summit at William & Mary on June 9, 2017: Over the past few decades hundreds of best colleges and universities in the United States have established centers for some form of community or civic engagement. The centers exists in physical and […]
