“I want to vote because it's important to be an active citizen in the community, and I believe voting is just one way to be an active citizen."

A new study examining voting among students shows that W&M student voting has doubled since 2014 and is higher than the national average.

Andrew Goldkuhle '89, MBA '01 is working on a very fragile piece of the Washington National Cathedral – a south transept stained glass window featuring the apostles Luke and Thomas. See more about his stained glass work below.

Stained glass artisan Andrew Goldkuhle (Goldkuhle Studios) is currently removing a south transept stained glass window for conservation. The window depicts the apostles Luke and Thomas. Goldkuhle will take these panels to his studio to inspect the glass for damage, replace the leading between the pieces of glass, and strengthen the panels before returning them to their place below the south rose window.

Hello Tribe Family! My name is Omar Kamara and I am a William and Mary Alumni, Class of 2015. I am currently pursuing my masters in directing at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. In order to graduate, we must complete a thesis film that showcases our voices as a filmmakers and the stories we hope to share with the world. In some cases, these thesis films are responsible for launching careers! This is where I could desperately use some Tribe help! We have raised 70% of our proposed budget but could use some definite assistance in raising the last 30%! Any gift would mean the world. Since AFI is a non-profit, all gifts may be tax deductible! Here is the website for more information and a link to support: www.massavefilm.com https://my.afi.com/dev/contribute2.aspx?don=314&fieldAmt= Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like more information at [email protected]. Thank you for your support! Go Tribe!
