Dear Class of 2015 Parents,

It's hard to believe this time is already upon us, but may is here, and in the very near future this year's senior class will be ending their time at William & Mary. It has truly been a privilege to have your students be a part of the Tribe community, and we wish them the best with all of their future endeavors.


In this newsletter there is information from Residence Life about moving out and summer school, updates from Student Leadership Development, Community Engagement, Study Abroad, and more! Read below to find out what's happening on campus this month.


Thank you for allowing us to be such a large part of your students' lives during their time here, and we look forward to seeing many of you on May 16th for commencement.

Tribe TutorZone Certification
The Tribe TutorZone is happy to announce that we have received our Stage I Certification as an International Tutor Training Program from the College Reading & Learning Association. This allows us to recognize the wonderful service that our peer tutors provide to their fellow students by awarding them official certification as fully trained tutors. 
Senior Survey
Every year, the Cohen Career Center collects important information regarding outcomes for the graduating class at William & Mary. This information is vital to multiple constituencies and helps tell the story of where students land after their time at William & Mary. Our data is only as robust as the number of recorded responses - please remind your son or daughter to fill out the senior survey they will receive via email. The survey will be emailed at different points after graduation to capture updated information, as students secure positions, commit to graduate school, or continue to look for opportunities. 
May Break
May Break 2015 is an alternative break to DC focusing on issues related to food justice. As part of this trip, students will work with community organizations on issues of hunger, sustainability and poverty, and develop a core group of active citizens.
