How much spending money do students need?
The amount may vary according to each individual’s perceived needs, what he or she has been accustomed to, etc. Some students get along on as little as $20 per week, but $30-$40 (as an average) is more realistic.
When my student graduates, is there a limit to the number of guests who may attend?
Formal Commencement exercises take place in William & Mary Hall, our basketball arena, which has a seating capacity of approximately 10,000. The College must therefore limit the number of tickets each graduating student is given for these ceremonies. However, there are many graduation activities over a two-day period and there is no limit on the number of guests at most of these other activities. You can make special arrangements to accommodate individuals with disabilities. More information about Commencement can be obtained from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
