“As a California kid, I came to William & Mary sight unseen. I was shocked by how old and venerable the institution was. I was appreciative of my time at William & Mary. I’m constantly amazed on how well prepared I was for entering the workforce and the real world. William & Mary allowed me to explore and grow in a supportive environment.”
