As part of your 50th Reunion celebration, the William & Mary Alumni Association will publish an edition of the Colonial Re-Echo. The Re-Echo is a yearbook that tells the story of our class at William & Mary and during the 50 years since graduation. Instructions to submit entries to the Re-Echo submissions will be distributed this fall and you will be able to purchase both a Re-Echo and an Olde Guarde Medallion when you register for Traditions Weekend in early 2024.

Have photos from your time at W&M you'd like to share with your classmates in addition to your Re-Echo entry? Submit them here by March 25.

Please note that any photos submitted may be used in printed material and the Class of 1974 slideshow.
