Tribe Square Welcome Message

Greetings from The College of William & Mary!

This message goes out to all students, family and friends. The Office of Residence Life wants to personally welcome you for the upcoming year. I am the Area Director for the Tribe Square/One Tribe Place/Yates (TOY) Residential Area; which is comprised of Tribe Square (upperclassmen, apartments), One Tribe Place (upperclassmen, coed), and Yates (freshmen, co-ed). You might ask yourself, what is an Area Director? An Area Director is a full-time employee of the College with a Masters degree. Overall, the Area Director is responsible for the day to day activities that occur in this residential area.

There are 20 student staff members in this area who are ready to assist you and provide a multitude of programming opportunities to enhance your residential experience. One of the greatest ways to be involved in your community is to be a part of Hall Council-- the governing body for the residence halls. I encourage you to take an active role in your community.

Please review this web site for detailed information on all the Residence Halls in this area, as well as information specifically geared for first-year students. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly.

The staff and I would like to welcome you to the Tribe Square/OTP/Yates Area! We are looking forward to a great year.

See you in August!

Hello! My name is Capwell Taylor and I have the pleasure of being the Tribe Square RA for this upcoming year. Tribe Square is conveniently located next to Wawa and across the street from the Blow Hall and Bryan Complex. Tribe Square has three large lounges, a laundry room on each floor, and a swipe entrance elevator. One of the best things about Tribe Square is that the apartments consist of four single rooms (with full size beds!), two bathrooms, a combined living room and kitchen area with a fridge, stove, oven and microwave. Each apartment comes with one lamp located in the living rooms, but residents must provide their own lighting for their bedrooms. Each bedroom contains a full size bed, desk, desk chair, file cabinet, and set of dresser drawers. Pita Pit, the Crust, and Mooyah are located just below the Tribe Square apartments making it the perfect location if you need a late night snack!

As your Resident Assistant, I look forward to planning programs that fit your needs! Hall dues for the summer, fall, and spring will only be thirty dollars.

Our big check in times are at the start of each session.  They are:

May 31 (Jamestown Duty Office): 1pm-7pm

Until August 1st you can also check in at the Jamestown Duty Office between the hours of 6 and 10 pm.

At our hall meeting we will be discussing the community agreement.  Please come with ideas in mind of how you want our community to come together.  Self Determination is an important and unique aspect of living on campus at William and Mary.  So to refresh your memory about what that means, please check out this little movie.

If you have any questions or need to check in at a different time, please contact me at, the Area Director, Rich Schofield at , or Residence Life at .

Please keep in mind that you cannot check in earlier than May 31, and that you should be in contact at least a week in advance if you need to check in at an alternate time.

Can’t wait to meet you!

Capwell Taylor
