Phenomenal showing at WorldMUN 2012: Vancouver!

Our fabulous delegation to WorldMUN 2012: Vancouver has done it again! With eleven of the fourteen members earning the coveted diplomacy awards, W&M placed among the top few schools in the world! While the unofficial rankings have yet to be tallied, past years with this ratio have resulted in a second place for the large delegation category.

WorldMUN is truly a group effort. Our delegates trained hard, helping each other to prepare and supporting one another from position assignments all the way through to the glorious end. Many thanks are also due to the numerous members of the Club and W&M community who lent their expertise and talent to numerous training sessions. MUN is a team sport of the highest caliber, and W&M lacks nothing in team spirit.

Congratulations also to all of the universities who participated! These delegations are always a pleasure to work with. It is these friendships and good feelings that WorldMUN strives and succeeds to create.

Until next year, WorldMUN. It has been an amazing experience for all who attended and everyone at home in Williamsburg should be thanked for their assistance. Congratulations delegates!

 

MUN Fun

Now, we all know that our Model UN team is one of the best in the world. Placing second at WorldMUN last year, we’re only looking to improve. We’ve been to two conferences this semester, one hosted by Columbia (CMUNNY) and one hosted by Georgetown (NCSC). Needless to say, both were huge successes!

Sending a delegation of 20 to CMUNNY, William and Mary didn’t disappoint, with 12 delegates getting awards. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

To make things more impressive, we sent a delegation of 40 students to NCSC, our training conference for the year. With more than half of the group as freshman and almost 2/3 first-time college MUNers, it was quite the experience, and everyone seemed to learn lots. We represented well, and we even hosted an alumni event! What a life.
