About Katie Fottrell

Campus Activities: Trip Leader for the William & Mary Haiti Compact, Facility Supervisor at W&M Rec Sports, Fitness Instructor at W&M Rec Sports, All-around campus celebrity

Though it’s cliché, the Governor’s Palace lawn really held a special place in my heart. Granted, it’s not technically a part of the William & Mary “campus,” but it’s proof that the students at W&M really make Williamsburg – even the colonial parts – all their own. The lawn is where I made my own College tradition with my freshman roommate, making it a place where every month we watched the full moon together with friends. And I think that’s what W&M is all about: taking the historic legacy passed down to you and putting your own fresh spin on it to make it truly your own.
