Fall Focus Days

Come preview the William & Mary experience during one of our comprehensive Saturday programs!

Finding the college that fits you best is a tough process. A visit to campus can be a great way to explore your options. W&M's Fall Focus Days are designed to help introduce you to many elements of the William & Mary experience. Hear from faculty about academic opportunities and research experiences, from students about campus life and the Williamsburg community and from an admission officer regarding how to put your best foot forward during the application process. Each Saturday we will also showcase the talents of our students with performances from some of our most well known organizations! William & Mary's a cappella, ensemble and improv comedy groups are fantastic. Come see what all the buzz is about!

A small group of on campus interviews will be offered for senior students visiting W&M on Saturdays this fall (in addition to those that are offered on weekday afternoons). The only Saturday interview appointment that does not conflict with the Fall Focus events is at 9:00am. We do recommend registering for your interview first and then registering for the Fall Focus event if you plan to participate in both on the same day. If you have trouble registering for both events, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission (757-221-4223 or [[admissionevents]]).
