The Board is composed of students at each university who are dedicating their time and experience to strengthen the foundations of the Joint Degree Programme and to make the WaMStA Student Partnership a helpful and sustainable organization.
President: Georgie Farrington
My name is Georgie Farrington and I’m the president of the WaMStA student partnership on the St Andrews side! I’m currently in my fourth year studying history and mentally preparing for the real world. Asides from the joint degree programme, at both William and Mary and St. Andrews I have been a part of the women’s rugby team as well as judo at St. Andrews. When I’m not at sports practice you can usually finding me eating, sleeping or reading endless articles and books for my degree.
International Administrator: Caroline Stepniak
Hi, my name is Caroline and I’m currently in my third year studying history at St. Andrews. On the board, I’m the International Administrator on this side of the pond which means that I correspond with faculty and students across both schools to solve issues and generally help out wherever needed! You can find me interning at the St. Andrews Archives or involved in the Charities Society, McIntosh Hall Committee, and the Christmas Ball. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me!
Treasurer: Conor Scanlon
I am a 3rd year at St. Andrews, doing ABAB (started at St. Andrews, will graduate at William & Mary.) I study International Relations with a focus on both rebuilding African states post-conflict, as well as how weapons technologies impact international diplomacy. I extend my interest in studies to my internship in Edinburgh with the U.S. State Dept. in which help coordinate U.S. policy both Scotland and the UK. I am musically active at both universities, participating in the chamber orchestra in St. Andrews, and the symphony orchestra at William & Mary. I have also been a member of a band at W&M that has performed at numerous student musician showcases. For the student partnership, I served as the social chair this past year at W&M, and am currently serving as the Treasurer at St. Andrews. During my free time, I like to brush up on my knowledge of state-conflict and rebuilding periods, as well as traveling around the world.

External Communications Director: Anee Nguyen
Hey there Tribe and Saints! I’m Anee and I am the external communications director at St Andrews. I am a third year English student who either has her head in some Romantic poetry or is eating Janetta’s ice cream and guzzling chais. While in Scotland I work with the Alma Mater Productions as their semi-foreign special events team member and I also blog for William & Mary. I love Amazon Prime and representing the Tribe abroad! Also there’s no headshot of me because I took all of them and didn’t even think tot take one of myself!
