Family Weekend Update - July 1, 2020


Dear W&M Families,

The health and well-being of the William & Mary community is our greatest priority as we begin our Path Forward for fall 2020. The Plan Ahead team has worked diligently to ensure our new and continuing students are able to return to campus safely in August. To safeguard the health of our students, faculty, staff, alumni and the surrounding community, we are systematically adapting the physical campus, operations and curriculum.

For fall 2020, use of space at William & Mary is dedicated to core mission activities teaching, learning, research, student groups and activities and restricted to the immediate campus community. Based on these determinations and the most recent federal and state guidelines, Family Weekend 2020 will be re-imagined as a fully virtual event.

While we were very much looking forward to greeting you on campus this fall, we are excited to share our community with you in new and innovative ways. Please continue to save September 25-27, 2020,on your calendar and expect to receive more details regarding a schedule of virtual events via email, social media,and our website as the summer progresses.

Please continue to monitor the Path Forward for up-to-date information on William & Mary’s campus returnand visit Parent & Family Programs for ways to stay connected as a family member.
