Phillip Menard – October 31st, 2016

William Chichester, III (College ’05)

Major: Foreign Affairs (Concentration: Middle East North Africa/Arabic Language)

As a native of Fauquier County, Virginia, the University of Virginia was a natural choice for William. “UVA was the top ranked school in the state, and I had quite a few mentors in high school who were UVA alums.” As a first generation college student who grew up on a farm in a predominately white and black neighborhood, UVA provided him with the opportunity to interact with a lot of different types of people.

Having grown up in Richmond, Virginia, Javona knew that she wanted an undergraduate experience that included diverse cultures and opportunities. She had family members who went to UVA and upon visiting the university, she instantly fell in love. She was blown away UVA’s focus on “providing its students with the opportunity to grow and impact the community.”
