During her college search, Lucy Greenman longed for a place where she could study maternal and child health through hard science and liberal arts lenses, but what she sought more than anything was music. Lucy wanted a campus music scene that was low pressure and would accept her folky, singer-songwriter style, and a place where other musicians would be open to jam sessions and collaborations. She says her vision came to life when she attended an open-mic night in Williamsburg. It was in that moment that she knew she was home.
A follower of Judaism, Lucy uses music to teach and celebrate her faith. During her freshman year, she was featured on NBC’s TODAY in a series highlighting people learning from and teaching their faith and how their faith shapes who they are. At W&M, Lucy is a regular performer at events hosted by Alma Mater Productions (AMP), and she is involved with Voices for Planned Parenthood (VOX) and Health Outreach Peer Educators (HOPE). A 1693 Scholar, Lucy says she couldn't think of a better environment for sharing songs, making friends and figuring out life than William & Mary.
