Room Deposits, Living in CW, and Semester Break Closing
Room reservation deposits for 2016/2017 are now being accepted. Students must pay the deposit by the deadline to participate in room selection. 

Did you know that W&M has a dorm named one of the "coolest"  in the US? Check out the Colonial Williamsburg House! This is, by far, one of the most unique living experiences students can have at W&M. 

It is never too soon to plan for Semester Break closing. Residence Halls close on 12/17 at 10:00am.  
Spring 2016 Insurance Waiver Requests
Why pay for insurance you don't need? If your student is a new or transfer student this spring or a continuing student who didn't file a 2015-2016 insurance waiver in the fall, you need to file a Spring 2016 Insurance Waiver Request by 1/10/16. For more information, visit the Student Health Insurance website.
The Job Search Over Winter Break
Winter break provides a great opportunity to devote more time and focus to the job search, and the career center offers a variety of online resources. Tribe Careers is an active portal where employers nationwide post positions geared towards new graduates and young professionals. Once a student logs into Tribe Careers, he or she also has access to several other job search databases, which the career center has subscribed to. LinkedIn should also be utilized in the job search process, to connect with William & Mary alumni at organizations of interest.
