ALL ROADS LEAD HOME

October 19-22, 2017

Welcome Class of 2012

Reminisce on the Wren steps. Take a stroll over the Crim Dell. Reconnect with classmates in the Sunken Garden. However you want to relive your college moments, William & Mary's Homecoming has something for everyone. This year, festivities will be held Oct. 19-22, and we hope you will join us for your reunion celebration!
 

Wherever your life journey has taken you since graduation, we hope that William & Mary has maintained a special place in your hearts, and that you are as excited as we are about this tremendous milestone. To mark this reunion, we ask you to join us in giving back.
 

Your gift, no matter the size, will help ensure that the university can continue to build on its long history of offering a high-caliber education for generations to come. Every contribution is valued and appreciated!  Our goal is to have at least 35 percent of the class participate in the reunion gift. All gifts to any part of the university count! Private support has become the lifeblood of William & Mary and it knows no bounds. Gifts made by alumni and others fund academics, faculty research, scholarships and so much more.
