So, you want to transfer to William & Mary?
Hi there, my name is Lauren, and I’m a senior here at W&M. I am and Asian and Middle Eastern Studies major with the Chinese Language and Literature minor, and I am on the Pre-Nursing track. I transferred here halfway through my freshman year from another in-state university in the spring of 2015, and I always knew W&M was my home. While I was waitlisted at the end of my senior year, I decided to continue on at the institution I had been accepted to, and charged forward to build the best transfer application that I could as a first-semester freshman. I guess I did a pretty good job, because here I am, and I couldn’t be happier anywhere else.
Here at the university, I played for W&M Women’s rugby team, am involved on the Executive Board for our school’s Hillel chapter, and I had the amazing opportunity to leave my own legacy by starting the first Jewish women’s group on campus. Even though William & Mary is 324 years old, there is still so much room to grow, with so much for students to contribute to.
With William & Mary being one of the smaller in-state universities, it still astounds me how many niches there are here for someone to take on and make their own, on and off campus. Transfer students often fit right into this eclectic student body, with current students eagerly waiting. So, you want to transfer to William & Mary? Myself and my transfer ambassador colleagues are here to help guide you on this stressful (but well worth it) journey. We were all in your shoes once, and we are here for you.
I can’t wait to get started!
