It’s that time of year again. The semester is winding down. Students are busy working on final projects, research papers, and all of the other end-of-the-semester obligations. Holiday decorations are starting to be displayed, Gingerbread Lattes are being sold at Java City, and Dean Ward’s office has been transformed into a Snow Globe!
Read student reflections regarding their relevant, engaging, field experiences and research efforts, and student life in general.
Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect on the things we have, and I am so grateful for the chance to further my education at W&M and spend part of my life here in Williamsburg.
It’s that time again…that time that only comes once every 4 years- Presidential ELECTION TIME!
I appreciate the way our cohort makes an effort to get together outside of class.

And so after a year of adjusting to the many rigors of coursework and day-to-day demands, now before me lies my “return” to what has been for all my life, routine and familiar. Yet I can’t help but wonder how unfamiliar it all will be. To summarize Thomas Wolfe, "you can't go back home..."
That's all that stands between me and a school exchange trip to the University of Edinburgh.
It is so easy to get secluded in a pile of books that sometimes we forget to smell the roses and enjoy the beautiful place that we’re in.
These last few weeks have been a roller coaster.
In just a few weeks, Counseling students are headed to Scotland. Students will be able to attend lectures, present at conferences, and enjoy Scotland's beautiful landscape. The University of Edinburgh has offered our students the opportunity to see what counseling looks like internationally.
Our respective weather patterns couldn’t be more dichotomous, with her experiences being “gifted” with rain and 50 degree highs.
It’s also so cool to get actual experience working with children, plus they were incredibly cute!
Well it is a lovely spring morning in Williamsburg, 10am and already we are around 70 degrees. Are you sure it is February?
This is the first time in my life that I have not had the next couple years of my life planned out, and frankly, it’s frightening.
Throughout the semester, the GEA organization puts on many events for the students at the school of education to enjoy. The latest event was a masquerade gala, open to all students, staff, and faculty.
