About Austin Wiese

Hey hey,

Okay, it looks like I’m supposed to give you a few critical pieces of information about myself so that you know a little bit more about me when you are reading this promisingly interesting blog. To begin, I majored in government with a business management minor. I was born and raised in the small, rural town of Flandreau, South Dakota, where most of my family still resides. It is okay if you haven’t heard of Flandreau, most people haven’t. However, if you have somehow heard of this little town please stop reading and give me a call. The thing is that if you have heard of Flandreau, you are probably from South Dakota; and because you are from South Dakota, you likely already have my phone number (Get it? Because there aren’t very many people in SD? Man, now I’m making the same jokes about myself that others make on a daily basis.)

Now, moving on to campus related activities. What to say … well, I kept busy on campus doing a variety of random things, including going to class, doing homework and making spontaneous trips into Colonial Williamsburg with friends to get cider. In fact, cider is one of my favorite parts of W&M and I definitely blog about it so that you can understand why I am so obsessed. I also had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala on an international service trip; I studied abroad for a month in Florence, Italy; and, I worked in the Admission Office. I was also a member of ODK and One-in-Four.

Now that you know everything about my life in South Dakota, as well as what kept me busy in Williamsburg, I will let you go. Again, thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me. I hope you enjoy my blog, for whatever reason … whether you’re making fun of it or admiring it …

Colonial Williamsburg = Free Cider

I recently realized that I have been back at William and Mary for over two weeks now and have not once utilized Colonial Williamsburg's cider mugs.

“You need to hurry up and come get this phone, I’m missing my TV show. I’m serious.”

At William and Mary we always talk about this crazy "Sense of Community" that you can't find at every university, especially public universities.  It was not

Ciao, bella!

It is weird thinking back about my trip to Italy.  It went by way too fast and ended far too soon, and before I realized what
