Fall Focus Days

Come preview the William & Mary experience during one of our comprehensive weekend programs!

Finding the college that fits you best is a tough process. Visiting the campuses you are considering is the very best way to explore your options.  During the fall semester, we offer several weekend programs designed to give prospective students a peek into the life of a W&M student in order to get to know the personality of our campus.

Fall Focus Day events are designed to introduce you to many elements of the W&M experience. Hear from faculty, students and community members about the many reasons they feel the university is a unique environment in which to learn, play and grow. Each event will showcase the creative talents of our students by including performances from some of our most well-known student organizations.The day includes a panel of current students plus faculty and campus administrators, an information session given by an admission dean, and also a campus tour led by a student tour guide.

We can't wait to welcome you to campus! Register for a Fall Focus Day!
