Student Affairs

"The William & Mary experience is more than amazing professors and great facilities. By fostering an environment that supports and challenges students to fully engage, by graduation they’ve had access to one of the richest student experiences in the nation. That’s why we’re proud to support Student Affairs and its vital work on campus."
