The Quotable Gale: July

Take another look at some of our top posts and favorite quotes from The Gale in July:


Volunteer celebration: Alumni boards

"In staying connected and volunteering for the College, you get so much more than you give. You expand your connections and network. Your tribe family grows and welcomes you wherever you are. In times of tragedy such as I have experienced having been widowed twice before the age of 60, it was my W&M family that gathered around me and gave me so much support and love. We are always here for each other." -Cindy Jarboe '77, president, William & Mary Alumni Association Board of Directors


The King of Tribe Pride

"My parents are Griffins! I think you may be confused about how this works…" -The Griffin, W&M mascot


Education for all

"By choosing to remain a public ivy, William & Mary has made a very conscious decision not to privatize education," Delgado says. "The College also taught me that apart from equal access, being educated was not just for economic reasons, but for the purpose of having choices and freedoms." -Clarissa Delgado '09, CEO and co-founder, Teach for the Philippines


Coffee grinder

"We felt inspired by both the coffee and beer worlds," Darcy says. "We were interested in flavor mixing, so oak infusion came to us because of how many of our own favorite beverages were brewed using similar tastes and aromas." -Terry Darcy '14, co-founder, Confluence Coffee
