William & Mary

Elizabeth Hill Boone '70

“I am afraid I was sometimes a rather mediocre student, and I initially struggled with writing...

. . . My freshman year, however, I was transformed by Whose Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and stayed up all night working on its analysis. My English professor, who had been giving me C+s and Bs, gave me an A- on that paper, adding the comment, 'Pin a rose on you!'  It was the perfect encouragement." —Elizabeth Hill Boone
