"When applying to graduate schools, I found myself applying to schools all over the east coast. If I would have realized just how great the higher education program at W&M was, I would have saved myself a lot time and even more money on applications! From the first time I visited after I applied, I was welcomed with open arms and felt embraced by the School of Ed community. The professors were there to answer any questions I had and have been supporting me ever since. 

Going into my second year of master's program, I decided to jump into the full W&M experience with both feet. I was elected Vice President of the Graduate Education Association and from there became a member of Graduate Council, the umbrella organization for all five W&M graduate schools. There was a opportunity for me to run for president of the Graduate Council, so I decided to give it a go and won! The School of Education, Higher Education Program and W&M as a whole, give you so many opportunities. It is just up to you to take advantage of them!"
