Use Your Resources
Undergraduate students have a number of advising resources throughout their time at W&M. From the advising resources provided to new students from the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs the summer before you arrive on campus, to the post-graduation guidance you will receive from your major advisor, you will have layers of advising support every step of your educational path. You can familiarize yourself with your advising resources below.
Branch Out and Seek Other Advice
As you discover more about your interests and what W&M offers, don't be shy about branching out and seeking advice! You'll never have a better chance to try new things, learn from other people's experiences and expertise, and tap into a wealth of opportunities.
Faculty at William & Mary want you to do well in their classes, and they make it easy to talk outside the classroom. Find out when your professors have office hours, or make an appointment to meet and ask about the course material or your assignments.
Ask your classmates what they're doing and planning and who is giving them helpful advice. Find out what's available through different academic resources. The key is to remember: You don't have to figure out everything on your own. People all over campus are ready to talk about their activities and how you can get involved. Find the right balance for you. If you change your mind later, you can make adjustments and try something new.
