My favorite summer event at W&M, the Young African Leaders Initiative

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 […]

A Major Dilemma: Film and Media Studies

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.

Film and Media Studies is a structured […]
