University Advancement’s events provide a wonderful opportunity for members of our Tribe family to engage and connect with William & Mary and each other. Please join us for one of our signature events:


Charter Day Weekend

Celebrating the birth of William & Mary by Royal Charter, Charter Day festivities involve students, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as the local community. In addition to the Charter Day Ceremony at Kaplan Arena, the weekend will include the Alumni Medallion and Service Awards Ceremony.

Traditions Weekend

Traditions Weekend honors three distinguished groups in the William & Mary community — the 50th Reunion Class, the Olde Guarde and the Boyle Legacy Society. This customized experience includes engaging programming and special events to build on the traditions alumni, parents and friends hold dear while reconnecting members with each other and the campus today.
