F&M had everything I was looking for in a college. When I first visited, I spent four days on campus. By the end of the trip, I just felt at home. I'm from Texas and I wanted to go to an East Coast college. I also wanted to play football, and F&M gave me that opportunity. While I was here I majored in anthropology, then went on to graduate from William & Mary Law School.
Today I am a partner in the litigation department at Tydings & Rosenberg LLP in Baltimore. I met some wonderful friends at F&M, including my wife, Tamie Barnett Kelley '98. I enjoyed every aspect of campus life. I tried to go to every talk, every social function, every art exhibit or performance. In my mind, that’s the true liberal arts educational experience.
