Preparing for Life as a University Student (PLUS)

Looking for something exciting and fun to do this summer? Apply to the PLUS program.

PLUS provides an intensive, yet supportive introduction to academic life at William and Mary, providing participants with the opportunity to interact with some of our most distinguished faculty members here at William & Mary. During the PLUS Program, students will engage in mock class sessions, while also gaining invaluable insight from professors and current students about being holistically successful at the University. Participants will also be provided the opportunity to become familiar with numerous campus resources, including the Cohen Career Center, Academic Advising, Swem Library and the D.C. Office.

PLUS also provides a great opportunity to meet other incoming and current William & Mary students, beginning that all-important process of networking and community-building. PLUS is sponsored by the University. Therefore, your decision to attend William & Mary provides you the opportunity to participate in the program.
