My first semester at William & Mary Law School flew by! Although the school work can be daunting, it is important that students also find a way to relieve stress and have some fun! One of my favorite ways to let loose is by participating in intramural sports with friends. There are a wide range of sports to choose from, with some of the games set up tournament-style that last just a day, while others have a weekly schedule. The teams are not only from within the law school; there are teams made up of undergraduate students and other graduate programs, so it is fun to get the chance to meet new people during the games!
This semester, I played intramural softball, football, and basketball. Some of the teams were more successful than others, but it was good to be active for an hour or two and forget about the stress of law school whether or not my team came out on top. Of course it is more fun to win…which made basketball one of my favorite experiences. My team won the tournament, which not only gave us bragging rights, but also landed us the coveted intramural champion t-shirts! Quite a success in my book! Before coming to law school, I often wondered whether or not I would still have time to have fun and relax. I am happy that William & Mary provides us with an opportunity to do just that! I cannot wait to play (and hopefully win) more games next semester!
