About Scott Vierick

Hi Everybody! In the fall of 2014, I had the opportunity to study in Washington DC as part of the W&M in Washington program. During that semester, I interned at the Middle East Institute and took classes relating to the challenges of political and economic development.

My time at William & Mary gave me the chance to both broaden my horizons and pursue my passions. On campus, I was active in the theatre department, and acted in numerous productions during my time in college. I worked at the PBK ticket office, and the summer before my junior year, I was a box office intern with the Virginia Shakespeare Festival. I also served as a tutor with College Partnership for Kids and a Floor Representative in Hall Council. I was a member of Canterbury, which allowed me the chance to participate in several community outreach projects, teach Sunday School, and serve as a reader and usher during services. During my sophomore year, I spent a semester at the University of Exeter in the UK, where I got the chance to study medieval history, political theory, and Middle Eastern politics. I also had the chance to intern at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, where I gave tours and interacted with visitors to help explain one of the most dynamic eras of American history.
