A Century of W&M Women

Inviting suggestions for 2018 commemoration

By W&M Alumni Magazine

In September 1918, 24 women entered the classrooms of William & Mary, making history. 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the enrollment of these first women. The 2017-18 academic year will also mark the 50th anniversary of the enrollment of the first three African American women students in residence at William & Mary. These women, and those who followed, transformed and enriched the university.

To help commemorate these historic milestones, the planning committee invites your suggestions, big and small, on campus or around the world. If you would like to share your thoughts with the committee, please send them to
