Truman Ruberti




West Orange, NJ



Activities on Campus:


Describe Yourself in Three Words:

Misery, by Stephen King

Favorite Movie:

Birdman, or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance


MMA, photography, writing, cooking.

Career Goals:

To make movies that people like

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Nowhere specific, actually. I like NJ though.

What is one thing on your bucket list?

Nothing very specific here, either. Traveling around Asia would be cool, I suppose.

What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?

I enjoy things like boxing and wrestling. It’s pretty relaxing, weirdly enough.

Describe your perfect day in Williamsburg:

Ideally, I would be able to sleep in a bit, get a lobster roll from the Tribe Truck, go to The Cheese Shop for some brie, bread, and a few drinks, then eat it all while watching a good movie, preferably in bed.

What is your favorite thing about William and Mary?

A lot of people here are a good middle ground between nerdy and socially competent, which means you can make good friends who share your interests.

If you were President of the College for a day, what would you do?

Make the Discourse Facebook group mandatory for all students to join, because that page needs more angry people.
