An Insider’s Guide to Graduation Weekend

What kind of graduation weekend you have, or want to have, is a highly individual question. It depends on your preferences and energy levels; how many friends and relatives you have coming into town; and whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert, and therefore love or only tolerate large crowds. I count myself among the […]

So in grand scholarly […]

William & Mary Women's Leadership Summit and Stock Pitch Competition
On March 19th, William & Mary hosted its first annual Women's Leadership Summit and Stock Pitch Competition in the Mason School of Business, bringing together 200 high-performing undergraduate women and professionals from across the country for a day of networking, exploration, and engagement. The all-female stock pitch competition included 12 teams representing some of the top universities in the nation. The summit gave students exposure to outstanding professional women from a variety of fields who served as stock pitch judges, panelists, and coaches. The event was sponsored by prestigious companies and generous individuals and was organized by two William & Mary student organizations, Women In Business and Smart Woman Securities, in conjunction with the Boehly Center. The success of the summit in its inaugural year ensures future opportunities for women to engage, learn from each other, and realize their potential.
