If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit us, or even if you have, we encourage you to get to know the Tribe before making your final decision about graduate school.
You may have applied here because you knew that our graduates are leaders that shape the future. And you may know that our graduates are in high demand in the fields of education, administration, school psychology and counseling. What you may not know is what it feels like to be a part of the Tribe. If you haven't yet decided that your graduate school colors should be green and gold, you might consider attending the Day for Admitted Graduate Students on March 31, 2017 from 12:30 – 4:00 p.m. Check-in for event is from 12:30 to 1:45. You can tour the school starting at 1:00 and visit the Information Fair where representatives will answer some of your questions about their services.
Applicants who have been admitted to one of our graduate programs are invited to campus to meet with current students, faculty, and alumni. Both formal and informal activities are planned to help all potential incoming students become more familiar with William and Mary, our School of Education, and the expectations of the graduate programs. These activities represent an opportunity to become a part of our learning community and experience what William and Mary has to offer. We will have representatives on hand from offices across campus to answer questions you may have about being a graduate student on our campus – Residence Life, Career Services, Financial Aid, Recreation Center, Bookstore, Dining Services, and reps from other offices of student service. We will have refreshments and tours of The School of Education. This event will help you find answers to your lingering questions. The W&M community looks forward to getting to know you and hopes you'll join us for this fun and informative day.
If you plan to attend, please complete the online registration form. While there is no cost for participating in the event, each individual must cover the cost of his/her travel and overnight accommodations if necessary. If you wish to stay in a nearby hotel, we can recommend the Days Inn Williamsburg Colonial Area (902 Richmond Road/I-64, Williamsburg, VA 2318 ; 757-229-5060.)
If you can’t attend the event, you can plan an individual visit. Just call our office at 757-221-2317 and speak with one of our Graduate Assistants. (These folks can also give you the inside story on what it’s like to be a graduate student here!) If you can’t make it to campus, take a look at our faculty and blogs, news, and follow us on facebook and Twitter.
We are excited that you are considering attending the School of Education at The College of William and Mary, which is consistently ranked in the top 50 in the U.S. News & World Report's Best Graduate Schools Guide. For 324 years, The College of William and Mary has educated leaders who have shaped our democratic systems. In this tradition, the School of Education is dedicated to preparing leaders who come to us with great capacity and commitment and graduate with the competence and credentials to make an impact. We think you belong here. If you have any questions that we can address as you make your graduate school decision, please let us know. We will email you an agenda closer to the event date.
We look forward to seeing you on March 31st, and we hope you will join the Tribe!
