Working in New York City this summer, it took some adjusting to get used to the Big Apple. Coming from a community as close as William and Mary, walking past streets of people you don’t recognize was quite the change. A week or so after I started working in New York, I received an email titled “The Tribe, NYC Chapter.” A fellow student living in New York compiled a list of all of the undergraduates working in the city and started planning events that we could all attend together. Events were hosted, dinners were planned, and dates were set.
Being in a new environment, it’s important to take full advantage of your settings; however, every once in awhile, it’s nice to return to your comfort zone. It is wonderful being able to meet up with a few friendly faces here and there to keep the Tribe pride alive.
This goes to show just how far the William and Mary community can reach.
