Yesterday marked the last day of class before spring break. However, a select few William & Mary students will be ditching the sand and sunscreen for concrete and columns in this next coming week. That’s right, DC spring break seminars are upon us, and the students involved are eager to learn through interactive site visits, panels, and exploring DC for a week. Students accepted into this competitive program will be attending a seminar in either Public Health: Health Equity, Sustainability, and Well-Being in a Global Age or The Law and Politics of Capital Punishment. Led by our finest and brightest faculty, some of our most ambitious students will be earning 3 credits, building their network, and most importantly learning something valuable that they can take on and apply throughout their professional and personal life.
Throughout this week, I’ll be taking you with me as I embark on my W&M in DC adventure! I’m so happy and honored that I get to share my experiences with the William & Mary community, as well as my friends and family. For those of you reading outside of my Facebook wall (I will proudly post this blog post to Facebook), I’m Audrey Trebelhorn and I’m a member of the class of 2019 here at William & Mary! Here’s a face to put to the name:

I’m a Kinesiology and Health Sciences major and Psychology minor. On campus I’m the Social Chair for my sorority, Alpha Chi Omega (mixers are my life), a member of Pointe Blank dance company, and a member of a research lab regarding the neuromuscular junction! When I’m not buying loaded cheese fries for my sorority or staining rat muscles, you can catch me painting or workin’ on my fitness at the Student Recreation Center. A super fun fact is that I’m high key into running and I ran a half marathon last year. I chose to apply and partake in the Public Health seminar, because I thought it would be a very innovative way to align my passion for health policy and equity with real-life applications. I also applied to preview some jobs in the realm of my major: the future is wide and bright and I’m here for it! I am very excited to make some new public health friends and also talk to policy makers that impact so much of our health in the United States.
Again, I am could not be more excited to share my and my fellow classmates experiences this week! I’m SO ready to begin this week and flaunt off my business casual outfits courtesy of Barbara Trebelhorn: William & Mary ’19 parent and business casual guru.
