I came here extra early so I can get a good spot for the Yule Log Ceremony. It’s one of William & Mary’s biggest traditions and, in my opinion, it is a must-see event. I feel pretty lucky because they are putting up the fire at 5pm in the dark. At least I could get some warmth.
I’m a transfer student and I just came to William & Mary. Compared to the students back in my hometown, the students here focus more on their studies and interpersonal lives, which is something I was looking for in a friend all along. Lots of people at the College care about each other as well as their education.
One thing that I think William & Mary students should remember for 2018 is similar to the old saying “Shoot for the moon; even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.” But it’s about perseverance and taking it one step at a time, no matter what stage of life you are in. I hope that, for 2018, we will welcome our incoming members of the Tribe and teach them valuable lessons (like the one above) to follow.
It’s like passing on the torch of knowledge to the next generation.
