William and Mary

Haley Bauser

Stamps 1693 Leadership Scholar


Virginia Beach, VA (Norfolk Academy)

Why W&M?

I was pretty sure that William & Mary was the place for me when I visited for the interview weekend. The campus is small enough to allow for both lectureHaley Bauser halls and small discussion based courses, but large enough to provide various opportunities in student activities. The students also had a love for the school and their respective fields that I just did not find at any other university. Both the professors and the students here are brilliant and passionate which makes for an interesting learning environment. Since I have started attending the college, I have loved hearing about the diverse interests of the students and the professors ranging from Biomatematics to the German election system. The added benefits of the scholarship made coming to William & Mary the clear decision.
