Fall-ing in love with W&M

Happy almost Thanksgiving! It definitely feels like fall here in Williamsburg. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the dining halls are serving pumpkin pie. We only have a few more weeks left of classes before finals begin, and I can’t help but get nostalgic about how much I love W&M.

Here are some of the many reasons I love W&M:

  1. The farmers market on Saturday mornings. Every Saturday morning from 8am-12pm, there is a farmers market held on Duke of Gloucester street. I love to grab farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade baked goods and apple cider from the farmer’s market. It’s a great way to get off campus, plus I oftentimes see my professors at the market as well!
  2. The bricks. Whether on buildings or on the sidewalks, the bricks are a signature of W&M. The bricks are a constant reminder of W&M’s long history (Fun fact: we are older than the United States).
  3. Swemromas. The coffee shop attached to Swem Library has sometimes been my lifesaver during midterms and finals seasons. Seriously, their coffee is so good. Try their S’mores latté. Really.
  4. Barrett Hall Front Porch. This is one of my favorite spots on campus because there is a huge front porch with rocking chairs. I love to go out on the porch to hang out with friends or read for class. If you’re on campus, you should seriously check it out!
  5. Wren 10. A cappella is huge on W&M’s campus. Every Wednesday at 10pm on the Wren Portico, a different a cappella group gives a free concert!
  6. The Crust’s Skillet Cookie. It’s a freshly baked chocolate cookie in a skillet pan with vanilla ice cream on top. It tastes even better than it sounds!
  7. The Dogs of DoG Street parade. Think about it. Once a year hundreds of dog owners across Williamsburg bring their dogs in costume to DoG Street (Duke of Gloucester Street) for a parade. It is one of those events that you cannot stop smiling after.
  8. West Wing Thanksgiving. Every year students from Tribe Fellowship open up their home to host a huge Thanksgiving dinner. This year they cooked 40 turkeys and served over 400 W&M students. They had a cappella, pumpkin pie and a bonfire!
