Week 125 - December 12 - 18 2016 - Emily Martin '18 shows us some of her favorite memories from W&M, from working at the Rec Center, to her social sorority and studying abroad.
Hi everyone! My name is Emily Martin, I'm from Cincinnati, Ohio and I'm a junior government major here at W&M. Here on campus I'm involved in a social sorority (@wmkappas ) , @natives_at_wm , Smart Woman Securities, and I work at the rock wall at the rec center! Hobbies include hiking, climbing, and above all else, procrastinating. I can't wait to show y'all my week here (#finals) and at home in Cincinnati 😊 -@emmartin96
On most Tuesdays you can find me ~rocking~ that forest green WM rec shirt with these (and other) lovely people 🤓 the rock wall is open weekdays 4-10 and weekends 12-4! Working at the rec is one of my favorite jobs I've ever had 😊💪🏼-@emmartin96 #TAP #wmcampusrec #getrecd
"The purpose of freedom is to create it for others" -Bernard Malamud. Today I took the opportunity to check out Cincinnati's Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Cincinnati played a huge role in the Underground Railroad- enslaved people crossed this river from Kentucky into Cincinnati and freedom. Many continued from here into Michigan and Canada, but many also stayed in Ohio and contributed to the city in innumerable ways. The freedom center is a beautiful and respectful memorialization of the sacrifices that enslaved people and Native Americans made during our nation's past and I'd recommend it to anyone who has some free time if they're ever in Cincinnati! -@emmartin96
Currently entering my 3rd semester of living in my sorority house! I love living with all my friends and always having people around. The close proximity to Colonial Williamsburg doesn't hurt either 😊 -@emmartin96 #gammakaptures
My last post is a #tbt to my favorite memory from school so far- my study abroad trip to Italy! I love that W&M offers so many month-long summer programs, it really makes it possible for everyone to find the perfect program for them. This was taken during our excursion to do a wine tasting in Chianti and probably the highlight of my life. Thanks for following my week and hope everyone has a great break! Ciao -@emmartin96
