Preparing for Life as a University Student (PLUS)

Looking for something exciting and fun to do this summer? Apply to the PLUS program.

Photo from PLUS 2012The purpose of the PLUS program is to provide a positive, transitional summer experience between high school and college life.  The 2017 Program dates are July 1st - 8th. PLUS provides an intensive, yet supportive introduction to academic life at William and Mary, providing participants with the opportunity to interact with some of our most distinguished faculty members here at William & Mary. During the PLUS Program, students will engage in mock class sessions, while also gaining invaluable insight from professors and current students about being holistically successful at the College. Participants will also be provided the opportunity to become familiar with numerous campus resources, including the Cohen Career Center, Academic Advising, Swem Library and the D.C. Office.

PLUS also provides a great opportunity to meet other incoming and current William & Mary students, beginning that all-important process of networking and community-building.  PLUS is sponsored by the College. Therefore, your decision to attend the College of William & Mary provides you the opportunity to participate in the program. Please note that all costs (room/board, food, and other program fees) are covered by William & Mary. Participants are responsible for their transportation to and from campus.
