    When applying, be honest and sincere. The admission staff will be able to see the hardworking, driven, and talented qualities of its applicants through the resume and test scores, and though very important, what they really love to see is the person. Whether through being daring, genuine, inquisitive, passionate, or all of the above, communicate how the W&M community will be strengthened by its new students. Complete the optional essay and, if possible, tour the campus and the surrounding area of Williamsburg. People are always surprised by how much it has to offer! It is especially beautiful during the summer, so if the prestige of the academics doesnâ??t call you, the scenery will definitely win you over!

    Definitely bring bug spray as well as clothes for all types of weather! Bring an open mind, bring an open heart, and most definitely do not forget to prepare yourself for one of the most wonderful experiences that you will ever find.

    Bond with your hall mates, it is the only time you'll ever have the experience to walk down a hallway and give everyone a high five. Also, first exams can be nerve wracking, bring gum or peppermints to chew on to help relieve the tension on test day. Don't eat off campus much, Williamsburg is by no means a cheap place to live..

    Go to your professors' office hours! The professors here are so in touch with their students and completely willing to help you out if you're struggling. They want you to succeed and take away something from their class Give yourself plenty of time to study. I personally start studying a week in advance for my exams. Also give yourself plenty of time to write major papers. Procrastination is not worth the stress. Make friends in class and study as a group. They may have caught something in class that you didn't Bring rain boots and an umbrella!!! Join tons of clubs and activities; get involved as much as possible and don't be afraid to expand your interests.
