Wow sums up how I feel right now after presenting our website on camera…how weird is it to think 20 years from now we could come back and search for our undergraduate selves and view on camera what we found to be one of the biggest accomplishments of our academic career (at least in my opinion). Even though the audience consisted of very few people it was still neat and a great practice for the symposium in just over a week eek!
Watching the Mary Washington group I realized how far we have all come even from our first presentation in class and to where we are today, seeing that our sites have grown to more than we imagined. While a few more kinks should be worked out, cough a second map cough, with the site I think the group has done really well in accomplishing what we wanted to, creating an interactive, organized site that alumni can use to remember their time at Mary Washington. Every experience is different and after doing research for this project I learned each experience is special and this could be me in 30 years looking at pictures of Mary Washington today and remembering what I saw on Devil-Goat Day or benching on a nice day! And I can now say I have had my 15 minutes of fame 😉
