Ever since Williamsburg, VA became a winter wonderland about three weeks ago, campus has been buzzing with a general feeling of excitement. Snow! So rare! SO fun! However, this past Monday morning, while I was still very much in a snow-infused mood, my roommate let slip a quiet groan when I mentioned snow. At first, I was baffled. How could ANYONE not appreciate such a change of pace, the possibility of snow days, home-made snow cones? And then it hit me. My roommate is from VA – northern VA at that! Snow is nothing out of the ordinary for her. But because I am from sunny California, the novelty has not worn off – It’s been such a treat. My roommate is ready for sunny skies; as for me, I wouldn’t mind slipping on icy sidewalks just a couple more times. Though subtle and silly, this is just another example of William and Mary’s diverse community.
