Shadow a Student & Class Visits

Griffin Shadow

Thank you to those that participated in our Griffin Shadow program. We do not offer our shadow program in the spring. 

Please reach out to [[maura, Assistant Dean Maura Wyrick]] with any questions.

Class Visits

The class visit program is designed to supplement our campus tours and information sessions. By sitting in on a real class, students can experience first-hand why William & Mary consistently ranks among the nation's top universities in commitment to undergraduate teaching. Due to the small size of so many of our classes, visit opportunities are limited and only classes with available seats will appear on the registration page.

There are several, pre-approved class sessions Monday - Friday during the spring semester. Classes designated "COLL 100" or "COLL 150" are our unique freshman seminars, capped at about 15 or 25 students. The below classes are available:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays:
    • 9:00-9:50 am - COLL 100: Revolutions (Government)
    • 9:00-9:50 am- Sociology & Behavioral Science in Health (Public Health, Pre-Medicine)
    • 1:00-1:50pm - COLL 100: Censorship in Music (Music)
    • 2:00-2:50 pm - International Security (International Relations)
  • Tuesdays, Thursdays:
    • 12:30-1:50pm - Caribbean Language & Identity (Africana Studies, Anthropology)
