Make a difference in the lives of William & Mary students
Class Ambassadors support current students by securing critical funds for W&M's most pressing needs, such as scholarships, faculty support, and research opportunities.
"I chose to volunteer because I'm so thankful for everything William & Mary gave me, and I wanted to be able to give back to the school to continue to fund the areas where we are most in need."
"Class Ambassadors form a strong network of volunteers helping to ensure William & Mary's robust success in our time. By bolstering class unity and spirit and encouraging classmates to support alma mater, your contributions as a class ambassador will have a powerful impact."
"I love the opportunity to stay connected with the vibrant campus life, to see how things have changed and to see the traditions that continue year after year."
"I volunteer because I am an educator that wholeheartedly admires his profession, mainly due to a degree and proficiencies from the College; this would not have been remotely feasible without individuals investing energy into the longevity of the College."
“It is imperative that we fundraise like our more well endowed peers and the class ambassador model is a critical component in reaching more alumni on an annual basis.”
