Our mission is to facilitate the transition, and ultimate persistence, of new students (either first-time-in-college or transfer) into the W&M community through opportunities that promote academic, social, and personal growth.
Our vision is to create an engaging transitional experience where matriculants are empowered to optimally thrive at William & Mary.
Goals/ObjectivesThrough their First Year Experience, new students to the College - defined as either first-time in college or transfer students - will:
- Connect with and engage in the William & Mary community
- Cultivate intellectual curiosity and embrace the academic challenges of the Liberal Arts experience
- Further develop the life skills needed to manage daily responsibilities, make healthy choices, and navigate challenges
