About Richard Murphy

Richard divided his childhood years between the bustling Yokohama, Japan and the suburban metropolis of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Richard pursued a double major in Government and French. When he wasn't studying hard in Swem Library or walking quickly to class, he kept busy with his campus organizations and commitments.

Any parents reading his blog may have heard his voice as a caller for Phonathon (eagerly accepting contributions to the Fund for William & Mary). Students may remember his face from his Yates Hall Presidential campaign (circa 2010), or perhaps as a member of the Tribe Tour Guides, representative of the Undergraduate Honor Council or former Social Chair of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity. Richard was also a Senior Interviewer for the Admission Office and participated in Orientation 2013.

In his free time, Richard enjoyed watching the free movies on Netflix, going for aimless late night walks, and reading and analyzing the “We Can’t Stop” music video. He hopes to someday move back to Grenoble, France, where he studied abroad and left a piece of his heart.
