The Tribe Adventure Program created W&M Pathways, a pre-orientation program designed to provide incoming students with a unique opportunity to integrate into the William & Mary Community through individualized outdoor experiences. Regardless of previous experience, students develop and use outdoor living skills while interacting with fellow incoming students and learning firsthand about life at the College from current student leaders. The Tribe Adventure Program also provides experiences throughout the semester.
