at the Moment
Ophthalmology My first stop of the week was at the ophthalmology department. The ophthalmology department has been the fastest-developing department in Santhiram. It has been renovated extensively in the past few months with the addition of LASIK equipment. During my time in the outpatient room, I immediately noticed that almost all of the patients were […]
Hi everyone! In the past two weeks, the most frequent topic of conversation on campus has been course registration. Whether registration went perfectly or if it did not work out remotely as planned, everyone is talking about it. I wanted to talk a little about how registration has worked for me since I transferred here. […]
This weekend I am going to ask you: do numbers and graphs really confuse you to the point where you are nervous about falling behind in class? The answer varies, and it begins with the COLL Curriculum! Those who have already tackled the NQR portion say they can handle the quantitative data for any discipline, or […]
Usually, I go straight into the academics part of my time in India because it occupies most of my time, but this week, I want to tell you about an absurd situation that happened on my way to the hospital. One truck was going the wrong way (it is actually quite common to go the […]
Want to know a fun fact about me? W&M’s Chief Police Officer, Deb Cheesbro, is my mentor. When I got lunch with her for the first time, I was star struck. Yeah, I know the people in my life are WAY cooler than me. I am a part of the William & Mary Women’s Mentoring […]
In my previous blogs, I focused on describing some of the highlights of my week to help you get a general idea of what I have been learning each week. In this blog, I want to outline what I do in the hospital every day so that you can get a slightly more detailed picture […]
Hey transfers, hope you guys are doing well! For everyone who is transferring 2018 spring, good luck. You made it all the way to this step and you will do a great job. The admission office cannot wait to read your application! This week I’d like to talk with you guys about the history subject. There […]
Hi everyone! This week, I wanted to write about my experience working in a biology research lab here on campus. Since I transferred from a smaller school, I was a little nervous about the availability of research opportunities for incoming juniors. As soon as I received my acceptance letter, I began to look into the […]
William & Mary sits squarely on the the Atlantic Coastal Plain, a region underlain by geologically young sand, silt, clay, and gravel. Many of these geological layers are fossiliferous, and even on campus we can find the preserved remains of 4 million-year old clams and scallops. What we don’t have is easy access to rocks, […]

Exactly a week ago, I returned from Homecoming 2017. Last week, it had been a year since my last post, and while life seemed to move forward for me — working my way up the corporate ladder, making a home for myself here in D.C., it seemed to be bringing me further away from my […]
I gave a tour to prospective students this week and got questions about why I applied early decision to William & Mary. The deadline for early decision is approaching quickly, which means you could possibly be spending your next four years at the best place on earth! Applying early decision is a pretty big commitment. […]
One of the greatest worries that many people have coming to a new school is “what type of people go there,” “will I fit in,” and many more along those lines. I love William & Mary for many reasons but the one that I tell people when they ask me “why W&M,” is diversity. I […]
Last year I wrote about having an academic family and in summary, I really and deeply appreciate my academic parents and siblings. They brought me out of my shell, gave me more brothers and sisters than I had ever even imagined having, and showed me that St Andrews was not as scary as I imagined […]

Hi everyone! This week has been pretty busy catching up after homecoming weekend, which was tons of fun! It was so much fun to see all the school spirit from both current students and alumni. Even though this weekend brought sunny, 75 degree weather, it is starting to officially feel like fall. Since I come […]
Balance. It is hard. And I’m not talking about balancing those organic chemistry equations. Throughout my time at W&M, I am learning to be better at balancing my academic and personal life. Between my economics classes and homework (yes, homework exists in college), and tutoring in economics, I draw A LOT of supply and demand […]
This week, I will be telling you about the anesthesiology and the ENT departments. And, I found out a little bit more about RMPs. Anesthesiology What do anesthesiologists do? Aside from administering local and/or general anesthesia, anesthesiologists also ensure that necessary equipment is set up for surgery. This includes making sure that the operating bed […]
Even if you’re not willing to admit it, being an upperclassman in college makes everyone feel a little more important. You’re experienced in studying (read: cramming) for midterms, your major has been declared and you know exactly which classes to take (and which professors to avoid). Being older means you’re the wise one, the one […]
I spent the front end of Fall Break herding more than 100 geologists across the Blue Ridge at the 47th Virginia Geological Field Conference. It is an annual meeting of academics, professionals, students, and rockhounds that gather to learn about new geological research in the Commonwealth. It was a special trip for me as two of […]

About four years ago, I was brushing my teeth in a very small Ludwell Apartment bathroom when my college roommate told me she liked this guy also living in our apartment complex. I quickly finished brushing my teeth because I needed more details on this potential love interest. About a week ago, my roommate and […]
After the psychiatry department, I was assigned to the DVL department. When I first found out that I would be observing in the DVL department, I had no idea what DVL stood for; I had never heard of that acronym before. Apparently, it stands for Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy. Interestingly, when I searched ‘Dermatology, Venereology […]
In the span of just a few months I’ve gotten really good at packing myself up. I haven’t forgotten a toothbrush, a jumper, my peace of mind, and I’ve even put together all the pieces of my heart in two purple suitcases. Being abroad has brought me the wonderful opportunity to travel, even if it […]
Hi guys! Last year, my favorite weekend of the fall was Homecoming Weekend. After the first couple months were over, I was really excited to have a weekend filled with school spirit and football. Homecoming happens just as the leaves start to change and everything feels more like fall, which is my favorite time of […]
I am going to spend this blog telling you a little bit about my time observing in the psychiatry department in the Santhiram General Hospital. I had never shadowed a psychiatrist before so it was all the more interesting. Not only did I learn about various mental disorders, but I also got to listen to […]
During my freshman orientation in 2014, all of the incoming students received a checklist of 169.3 things to do at William & Mary. (In case you haven’t heard, William & Mary was chartered in 1693!) Amazingly, I have managed to hold onto this list for the past three years, pinning it on my wall at […]
