WMHSMUN XXV Secretary General

Big news and big times ahead, my fellow IRCers!

There is officially a new Secretary General for WMHSMUN’s silver jubilee, and his name is William Shimer! So congratulations! We know you’re going to do an amazing job.

From his WMHSMUN bio:

William, a Sophomore, is planning on majoring in Government with a possible minor in Economics or Finance. After graduation, he wants to work for the State Department or a D.C. think-tank and eventually join a consulting firm. Outside of the International Relations Club, William is an intern at the Project on International Peace and Security (PIPS), an undergraduate think-tank, and he plays on the club Ultimate Frisbee team. He spent the summer watching the World Cup and studying abroad in Rome which was a life-changing experience. He fills his spare time by waterskiing, relaxing with friends, and spending a small fortune at Wawa.


Yes, dear IRCers, the rumors are true.

All positions for CMUNNY and NCSC are up. Simply click on this link:


Make a username, and you’re golden! If you have any questions, e-mail vpmun@wmirc.org.

All applications are due by this FRIDAY at midnight, so get crackin’!

CMUNNY is set for October 7-10, the weekend of fall break, and

NCSC is set for October 28-31, Halloween weekend. They both promise to be incredibly fun, so fill out those applications!

Also, keep in mind – CMUNNY does not have many spots, so people who are interested in going to CMUNNY but also willing to go to NCSC should apply for both and then explain their preferences in the room provided.


Hey all!

MUNtor/MUNtee lists have just gone out over the listserv! Having a MUNtor is a great way to make a new friend (ideally one with a car or a gift card to Five Guys), get to know more people in the club, and even convince to come out and play for our intramural sports teams.

Not on the list? No worries – just e-mail vpcampus@wmirc.org, and all will be just fine and dandy!

Get together with your MUNtor/MUNtee by our next meeting, this coming Tuesday, September 21 at 7:30 PM. The two (or three) of you could even show up to club dinner together! 6:30 in Lodge 1 right before the general meeting – it’s a hard one to refuse.

Make the most of this opportunity – these MUNtors are some of the coolest people on campus, and moreover, they’re there to help. So get on Facebook, stalk the heck out of them, and then when you realize they “like” Wall-e too, it can be “the start of something new.”

If they’re making High School Musical references, you may want to shy away…

IM Sports

The IRC IM sports program is the pride and joy of the William and Mary International Relations Club. Or at least, it’s this Director of Communications’ pride and joy.

Comebacks galore, close finishes, kickin’ ass… oh, and there’s that whole “having fun” thing, too. This fall season, the IRC WMDs are participating in both a softball and indoor soccer league. They also were one of the top half finishers in a day-long kickball tournament hosted by Rec Sports.

Now, the IRC WMDs have had this reputation of being awesome. Which is completely legit.

However, they’ve also somehow gotten this reputation of not really showing up – this latest trend has been nipped in the bud by the amazingness that is the Class of 2014. Freshmen are showing up by the bundle, and the records are proving it.

For the first time in recent memory (not really, but let’s pretend it is, so that it sounds more impressive), we have a winning record in soccer (an undefeated 3-0!), a barely-losing record in softball (a 1-2 start, only partially due to a forfeit), and a solid 1-1 effort put forth in kickball.

So c’mon out! We always have fun. Our next games are:

Sunday, September 26, 10:00 PM, Busch Fields for softball;

Monday, September 27, 7:45 PM, MAC in the Rec Center for soccer.

Startle us with your IRC pride!

Next Meeting Tuesday, September 21

Come on down to Small 111 on Tuesday at 7:30 PM to hang out with the IRC! Fun, food, and a 4.0 GPA guaranteed. Minus the food and the 4.0 GPA. We’ll be talking about our brand new MUNtor/MUNtee awesomeness, the success of WMOCMUN (this Sunday, September 19 at 10:30 AM), and so much more. You don’t want to miss it.

And even if you do, you should still come because you don’t want to make us sad. We had some kickin’ attendance at the last one, so join the masses! We all know that all the cool kids are doing it.

And if you’re still not convinced, we saved the best piece of news for last – Club Dinner at 6:30 right before in Lodge! Come meet the hungriest of our club members as we talk about international relations, sports, and what we did last weekend. It really is quite the experience.


Hey hey hey, what up past, present, future, and non William and Mary IR club members! Welcome to the new website. Much like the rest of this campus, we’re under construction, but enjoy what we’ve got up. Remember to check out our recent dates to see what’s up and coming! If you have any suggestions, feel free to e-mail communications@wmirc.org – we’re all ears!

Get excited for the new year – we’re hoping to make this the best year in the IRC’s history, so come join in on the fun. You won’t regret it.
