Stepping Stones

Opportunities to connect with new classmates and begin to establish the friendships that will sustain you for all time coming.

Stepping Stones are a series of virtual new student and student leader meet-ups created with the intention of easing incoming students into life as a college student within the W&M community. 

Each of the meet-ups are centered on a student identity, affinity, or special interest to assist students in finding an initial community within the university. The focus of each will be social (or at least as social as you can be over Zoom), but you never know who you might meet ... 

Perhaps you'll find your new best friend, future roommate, or a friendly face to look for on move-in day!

Come as you are, wherever you are. Each of the live Zoom sessions will be accessed using your W&M credentials. Check back frequently for additional dates added over the coming weeks.
