About Chris Valeska

What’s up? My name is Chris Valeska and I’m from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the City of Champions. Go Steelers and Pens!

As I sat down to start and write this bio the true and yet harsh realization that I was a Junior and therefore had completed exactly half of my time as a William and Mary student hit very close to home. With that being said I will stutter and attempt to proudly announce my junior status and fill you in with what I managed to fill the last two amazing years with.

First off I competed for the Men’s Tribe Gymnastics team. Although I will have to say that the majority of my time was spent working out in the gym I managed to fall in love with some activities outside of the chalk infested basement of William and Mary Hall.

I could be seen walking backwards around campus as a tour guide, who hoped that some of my prospective students would go home and read my blog. I was also in a social fraternity here at the College and as of junior year I would be working with a group called T.R.A.I.N. that works with other student groups to improve leadership skills.

I almost forgot to tell you that when I wasn’t found doing one of the previously mentioned activities or sitting on the terrace, I could be found in class. I’m majoring in Business (so excited for the brand new business school!) and minoring in German Studies. This summer I studied abroad in Potsdam, Germany, which was an amazing experience that everyone should get to enjoy during their time at the College.

I believe that’s all the vital information. If I give you anymore info about myself you’ll never read my posts.

A Well Deserved Break…right before Summer Break Rolls In

With gymnastics season over I get a taste of what it's like to finally have free time and be a typical William and Mary student.  Being
