  1. Hey everyone! I'm Liza, a 2017 graduate of the College. I'm from Martinsville, VA and I majored in Kinesiology and minored in biochemistry. I'm excited to show y'all a bit about my #williamandmary experience! Nothing gets me as excited as time spent outdoors, particularly in the woods or near mountains. This was taken on the Appalachian trail this past fall break with a friend. We backpacked to see the sunrise at McAfee Knob. ☀️🤙🏼- @ebm_118

  2. • Don't take life too seriously • (This week I wanna highlight some lessons I learned along the way as you glimpse into my life at W&M.) Relaxing and having fun is one of the things I learned through joining club field hockey! Although from the second photo we may seem #intense or serious, don't be fooled. The atmosphere of the W&M club team was so different from my high school team that it took a bit to adjust, but after only a couple weeks I realized how nice it is to be part of a team that is there to have fun and get to know each other! It was also an easy and fun way for me to incorporate exercise into my college life. Happy Tuesday! -@ebm_118 #williamandmary

  3. • Depending on other people is a good thing • This was a difficult lesson to learn as a person who always thinks my way is the best. Throughout college I was a part of @wmintervarsity and its leadership. Through working together with my team, we learned to listen to one another and rely on each other, trusting the different skills we each had. I was involved in small group, which became like a family for me at college. I also led a small group bible study and the past two years, we picked strawberries at College Run Farms in Surry, which I would highly recommend! 🍓-@ebm_118 #williamandmary

  4. • When going to a new community, remember that no matter your education, the community members are the experts, not you • One of my favorite things I was involved in through @wmintervarsity were UrbanPromise spring break trips. I went to Camden, NJ freshman year and Wilmington, DE all the other years, mentoring and getting to know students at after school camps. It was special to be able to see the same campers each year. Not only people from @wmintervarsity participate, but people from other Christian fellowships as well as anyone else who is interested can come along. To explain what I learned, when I say the community members are the experts, I mean that they are the ones who have experiences and first hand knowledge about their communities, therefore on these trips I had to remind myself to be a humble and active listener of these students' stories. -@ebm_118 #williamandmary

  5. • The people you are with can make frustrating circumstances a lot brighter • Fall 2015, which was the start of my junior year, I left for Dunedin, New Zealand to study abroad for the semester, from Late June-November. Studying abroad taught me to enjoy the simple things: a cool drink of water on a tiring hike, a hot shower after being in a van with 8 other people for 10 days over spring break, a meal cooked and shared with flat mates. The truth is for every beautiful photo, there are ten or more cloudy dud photos. While the glamorous photos may seem like the best part, remember those are just the highlights. For me it was definitely the people I met who made studying abroad incredible. They are there to laugh with you when the hike with one of the most beautiful overlooks in all of NZ is full of clouds, like that second photo. Study abroad if you get the chance! -@ebm_118 #williamandmary

  6. • Try new things / Don't be afraid to fail • This past spring, I decided to take Appalachian Music Ensemble, and it was one of my favorite classes I took during college, mainly because it didn't feel like a class at all. Each Monday evening, about 45 of us in the class gather, play music and learned some new tunes. Then we practiced in small groups. We end the semester with a show on the last day of classes. This is my small group! Happy Friday! -@ebm_118 #williamandmary

  7. • Friendship is the best ship • I can't begin to go into what I learned from Rosie, my roommate of all four years, but there's a lot. My freshman hallmates became some of my closest friends at college, and I lived with them almost all 4 years. Orientation at W&M is a one of a kind experience that was the beginning of many deep friendships for me. I am inspired by them and their commitments to making the world a better place. It's so exciting to attend a college where people are passionate about positive change! -@ebm_118 #williamandmary

  8. • Post-grad life update • I think y'all have had enough throwbacks for the week, so this is a photo from my job training a couple weeks ago. I am a fellow for MedServe, an organization that places recent grads in primary care doctor's offices across North Carolina that serve rural or underserved populations. It is a 2 year program, after which many of my cohort will attend med school, and I will hopefully attend physician's assistant (PA) school. I heard about the opportunity at the @cohencareercenter my junior year! In this photo, we are hearing from Dr. Irons of ECU Brody School of Medicine, who has had an incredible career driving the opening of many health clinics in eastern NC for people who wouldn't otherwise have access. I am excited to be working at a Duke Primary Care Clinic in Oxford, NC, which is about 45 minutes north of Durham. I start work tomorrow! -@ebm_118
