About Sarah Rojas

In middle school when I was visiting Colonial Williamsburg with my family, we wandered onto campus, and I immediately feel in love with William and Mary. Ever since I arrived on campus, the feeling has only grown. It was a great privilege to be surrounded by such vibrant and inspirational people. I was excited to learn from and grow with people who were as passionate about William and Mary as I was.

Before arriving on campus, I grew up in Summit, New Jersey, with my parents and my younger sister, Emily. Some of the activities I was involved with here on campus included the Student Assembly, where I served as a senator for my class and Chair of the Public Affairs Committee. Through my involvement in the SA, I helped organize a large-scale student voter registration drive. My freshman year, I was a Sharpe Community Scholar studying inequality in the American education system, and due to this, I was one of the founding members and Outreach Chair of Tribe College Outreach, an organization that helps low-income, first-generation high school students prepare for, apply to, pay for and transition into college. I was a member of Chi Omega, and I served as the Vice President of Community Service for the Inter-Sorority Council. Through Admission, I was a Tribe Ambassador and Tour Guide, and I worked with Residence Life through my position in RHA. I have served as a student representative on two College-wide committees, worked with the orientation program for incoming freshmen and have participated in student leadership workshops.

I was a government major here at the College, and one summer I was an intern for CBS News’ 60 Minutes.
