Autumn Blast is our annual overnight program typically held in September or October for multicultural high school juniors and seniors. During this exciting weekend, prospective students get the chance to not only learn important information about William & Mary, but also get a true sense of what college life is like. Prospective students arrive on Saturday and leave Sunday morning. Topics such as the college application process and financial aid are discussed. Students have the opportunity to take a campus tour and experience the social aspects of college life. Autumn Blast provides an amazing opportunity for students to not just see, but experience William & Mary.
Autumn Blast was wonderful. My daughter texted me within hours of being there stating that she could see herself attending William & Mary. The weekend was very informative and well organized." -2011 Parent Participant
