Last night we got back from a wonderful weekend in Williamsburg for W&M Homecoming. We've been looking forward to this weekend for awhile since lots of friends were going to be in town and we haven't been back in a year! It proved to be just as fun as we were hoping it would be. On Friday we went for a walk and ended up watching the parade down Richmond Rd.
We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening walking around campus seeing the places we used to live for four years of our lives. In fact, the majority of the weekend was spent just catching up with each other and walking around campus and Colonial Williamsburg. So much has changed since we were in school - they have built a ton of infrastructure over the last four years. There are some things that have not changed though, which include:
- The bricks - they are still uneven and make you trip when you're least expecting it (though do you ever really expect to trip?)
- There are still random people dressed in colonial-garb wandering the town.
- The spirit and community feel to the college are still there and still wonderful.
A few of us ended up with tickets to the football game Saturday, so we were able to enjoy watching our Alma mater play again.
