William & Mary senior Connor Smith is Head Delegate in his fourth and final year on the circuit. A skillful speaker, Connor’s diplomatic personality is infectious, and transfers to the entire W&M team, as they are known to be some of the most personable delegates on the circuit both in and out of committee. William & Mary finished last season at 8th place in our final rankings.
What are your goals for this year for your team?
Connor: This year, we’re aiming to expand William & Mary’s footprint by attending a wider array of conferences and drawing more schools to &MUN. I define success in terms of our positive impact on the conferences we attend: if we can project a spirit of knowledgeability, inclusivity, and friendliness onto more blocs, committees, and MUN friendships, I think we will have accomplished our goals for this year.
What are you most looking forward to this season?
Connor: Personally, since I wasn’t around this summer, I’m really excited to see all of my MUN friends again. I think, during the year, you get so used to seeing these people almost every month that it’s kind of strange to spend a summer away from the circuit. And of course, I’m excited for all the new places William & Mary is going to travel. I still haven’t gotten over the strange feeling of seeing someone I know in a different city, or even on a different continent, and that rush is what has kept me doing MUN for all these years.
