Tribe Square Welcome Message

Greetings from The College of William & Mary!

To all students, parents, family and friends, I want to personally offer my welcome to you for the upcoming year. My name is Billie Jo Wood and I am the Area Director for the Brown, Monroe, Old Dominion, Tribe Square, and The Graduate Complex. You might ask yourself, what is an Area Director?  I am a full-time live-in staff member of the College with a Master’s Degree. I have worked in Residence Life for many years, so I have extensive experience in student housing and in working with the issues and concerns of our residential students. Overall, I am responsible for the day-to-day activities that occur in the area.

Living in a residence hall can be a time of great excitement and challenges! As Residence Life staff, it is our responsibility to ensure that we offer support to our students while encouraging their independence and personal responsibility. With many student staff members in this area, we offer a great deal of information and guidance. We are also known for having a tremendous amount of fun. I can assure you -- there is never a lack of something to do. One of the greatest ways to be involved is to be a part of Hall Council--the governing body for the residence halls. It is also a fast way to make new friends and offer input about your building.

At this point in the year, students are often thinking about how to prepare for the upcoming year. Please review the Residence Life website for information that can help in this process. I understand that sometimes it is necessary to speak to someone directly. I encourage you to contact me should you have any questions.

Welcome to all our new students, and welcome back to our returning students! I look forward to your arrival in August!
