slings & arrows


Think of William & Mary as one of those giant medieval cross bows and our graduating seniors as the arrows in its quiver. (Yeah, we know they're actually ballistas, and they fire bolts not arrows, but go with us here.) Ready, aim high and THWANG!

W&M alumni soar to dizzying heights in a wide variety of highly competitive careers (Astronaut David Brown '78 completes the metaphor nicely) and include an impressive number of CEOs and corner-office executives, lawyers and elected officials, doctors and public policymakers, social entrepreneurs and technological innovators, Rhodes Scholars and Fulbright Fellows. They are living/working proof that a liberal arts education is the ideal preparation for complex decision making, critical analysis and persuasive communication.

Join us at W&M and get ready to fly.
