Hi everyone! My name is Jake Lewitz and I am a senior public policy and American studies major from the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to my work with the SA, I am a Health Outreach Peer Educator, Branch Out Regional Site Leaders, an OA, a Peer Advisor at the Reves Center, and a member of APO. I just returned from a semester abroad in Cape Town, South Africa.
I am incredibly excited to serve as the Secretary of Health and Safety this year. The department of health and safety encompasses a variety of topics including mental health, sexual health, substance abuse, and general health. This year we are putting a great deal of focus on mental health. The programs we plan to implement hope to normalize mental illness and to encourage students to talk to friends and professionals about mental health. For sexual health we hope to improve on-campus condom distribution, continue to provide free STI testing, and invite speakers who advocate on behalf of safe sex. For substance abuse, we plan to explore opportunities to continue to educate students on drugs (including alcohol) and college alcohol policy. Our other initiatives include safety walks, free yoga classes at the Rec during exam periods, and flu shot distributions.
Our best ideas will come from you, the students. Please email with your ideas about health and safety at William and Mary.
A resident of Yorktown, Virginia, I come from a background of travel that I continue to foster at the College. A senior Government and Sociology major, I’ve participated in study abroad programs to Morocco with her involvement in the Arabic department, to Belize as a member of the student-led service organization Students4Belize Education, and D.C where she spent her spring semester interning in the city with William & Mary’s Washington program. I am actively involved on campus and continue to revel in the close bonds of community and civic-mindedness, which I believe are key characteristics of the Tribe family. In my spare time, I can often be found running the College’s Matoaka trails and enjoying the free food samples of Colonial Williamsburg. The mental health of our student body is of paramount importance to me and I hope to develop programs this year to make William & Mary a healthier happier place.
It’s so odd to now be able to say that I’m a senior just months away from graduating from this beautiful college with my Neuroscience major and all of the memories of my experience here. When I’m not in Swem, I love spending my time volunteering in the community, especially as an interpreter in Olde Towne Medical Center and as a tutor at Lafayette High School. I’m also involved with an international service trip that funds a free medical camp in eastern Nepal. I’m very excited about working with Meghan Moore and the entire Student Assembly to improve mental health on campus because I personally see this as an issue that needs to be addressed to make everyone’s experience at William and Mary the best it can possibly be. If you have any thoughts, comments, or suggestions, feel free to contact me!
Hey! I’m Maggie Skorup, a sophomore at the college from Virginia Beach, Virginia. This past year as a freshman, I became involved with the International Relations club and the 2012 Freshman Orientation staff, as well as Campus Buddies, a new student organization dedicated to promoting disability awareness on campus and serving the local community. I am excited to combine my passion for service and desire to expand campus dialogue surrounding disability issues, as I serve as both President of Campus Buddies and Undersecretary of Disability Affairs this year.
My name is Tony Song and I’m a rising Junior at the College. I was born and raised in Richmond, VA and graduated from Clover Hill High School. I enjoy spending a lot of my time at the College participating in IM sports and relaxing with some friends. On campus, I’m involved with HOPE, Club Volleyball, and Green & Gold Christmas.
I’m a senior at the College (Yay Class of 2013!) hailing from Chesapeake, Virginia. I am double majoring in Sociology and Public Health. I am extremely excited to serve as the Undersecretary of Sexual Health. I have been a member of the Sexual Health branch of HOPE since my freshman year and have since gotten the opportunity to serve as VP of the branch, present at regional and national conferences and organize many campus wide events including Tribe Tropics. When I’m not placing condoms in your mailboxes I serve as a leader for Williamsburg Girl Scout Brownie Troop 1437, a member of the Health and Wellness Committee, a Summer Peer Academic Advisor for incoming freshman and a Branch Out Regional leader. I love being outside, reading and DIY projects. If you have any suggestions for Sexual Health efforts on campus, any burning questions you need to ask or just want to say hello please feel free to email me.
