  1. Hello #williamandmary fans and followers and friends (also my mom)!! My name is Samantha Braver, I'm a senior, and I'll be your host for the week...for free! (But tips accepted, leave them in the comments). I'm a Government & Gender, Sexuality & Women's Studies double major here at the college. I'm also a Resident Assistant (s/o to GGV), and involved with Young Democrats, the social sorority Gamma Phi Beta, the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, the programming board Alma Mater Productions, and Student Assembly! I can't wait to share one of my last weeks at W&M with all of you. I think I love W&M more than King William loved Queen Mary, which is probably good considering the fact that they were cousins and of a wide age disparity, but anyways, those political power arrangements are always (green &) gold. 馃挌馃挍 -@instasambraver

  2. Ringing in my 21st birthday the same way as our founding fathers at my favorite local tavern! I'm pretty sure an exact quote from Patrick Henry is, "Give me cider or give me death!" I see why we had a rebellion over the whiskey tax...馃嵒#FORTHEBOLDROCK #williamandmary -@instasambraver

  3. Tonight, the Young Democrats are having one of our final meetings...this time at the restaurant La Tolteca! Get you somebody that can talk their (Jon) Ossoff about the Georgia sixth district special election, while eating chips and salsa at the same time. #williamandmary #Montygetsstuffdone -@instasambraver

  4. #TBT to the first half of this semester, when I interned at the Virginia General Assembly on Tuesdays and Thursdays through a program offered by W&M's Government Department. I interned with Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn, pictured here next to me. This internship was one of my favorite experiences in college! I loved reading constituent letters, attending meetings, and feeling self-important walking around in all that fancy business attire. I learned so much about how VA's state government runs, and bore witness to some incredibly powerful, tear-jerking testimony. Hit me up if you want to learn more about how a bill is passed, the best coffee shop in Richmond, or how exactly Governor Terry McAuliffe managed to wrestle an alligator that one time. #williamandmary -@instasambraver

  5. Here's a sneak peak of King & Queen Ball, one of my most cherished W&M traditions, which starts tonight! As Undersecretary for Programming & Events in Student Assembly, along with @mia.chand, I've been helping plan this event during the semester. I can't wait to see everyone's dance moves! I'm sure mine will be ~royally~ embarrassing. #scholarsandBALLers #williamandmary -@instasambraver

  6. Tonight, the Young Democrats had our annual fundraiser at Senator Monty Mason's lovely home (Monty is pictured right). On the left is Delegate Mike Mullin, and together they represent Williamsburg. I love hanging with Monty and Mike because they inspire me to enact change on a local level, and also, they both have killer names. I mean, that double M alliteration?! That should be a requirement to get your name on the ballot. Can we get an amendment over here, Milliam and Mary? #WilliamandMary -@instasambraver

  7. I am going to end my week with this, because wine not? Today, some of my sisters in Gamma Phi and I went to the Williamsburg Winery to celebrate the end of senior year. Although I realized I still do not like wine (it's honestly disgusting, what is the appeal?), I had a lot of fun pretending to be an adult, pretentiously swishing my drink, and responsibly ignoring my exam tomorrow. I just want to say thank you for following me around this week (though the paparazzi was a bit much). I am so humbly grateful for all that W&M has given me, and while I am nervous about graduating, I know I'll be back some day to this green & golden place I call home. And perhaps then, I'll finally have grown enough to down a full glass of Riesling...and maybe even enjoy it in the process. Cheers! 馃 #WilliamandMary -@instasambraver
