Campus Activities

Resident Assistant, Passing Notes (all-female a cappella group), Multicultural Ambassador Council

Favorite Spot

Located near the back of Old Campus is a tree that a majority of the student body refers to as the “funky tree.” For some reason, unbeknown to me, it is a misshapen tree with one large, twisty branch close enough to the ground that it acts as a natural bench. To me, this tree is a physical representation of my experience at the College because it is directly in front of Jefferson Hall (a residence hall that I was an RA in the summer of 2010), behind Ewell (the home of the music department aka were I spent a majority of my campus life), and it is the embodiment of the W&M ideals of processing unique qualities and accessibility to those who wish to seek it out (or in my case sat on it).
