Class Project

Class of 1972 First Generation Opportunity Fund

The Class of 1972 First Generation Opportunity Fund provides support for undergraduate first-generation enrichment and wellness activities and programming, including staffing, with a preference for first-generation, low-income students.



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. There are just two questions for your submission: What’s your favorite W&M memory, and what have you been up to these last 50 years?

We can't wait to see your answers!
