Did you know that you can use your Tribe Card to take the bus around town? WATA's Green Line route was recently updated to minimize wait times to get you everywhere you need to be on campus within minutes.
Wall of Wishes to New W&M Students

During New Student Orientation, we asked families to leave behind some well-wishes for you all. We know that going away to school is a big adjustment and we want you to remember how amazing you are! Throughout the year, we will post these messages of encouragement on our Instagram page, so be sure to follow us to see if there is a message for you @wmauxiliaries.
Commuter Meal Plan Options

Living off campus? Consider enrolling in a meal plan! If budgeted weekly, the Commuter 50 provides three meal swipes a week and the Commuter 25 provides less than two meal swipes per week at Commons, Sadler, Tribe Truck or Marketplace. Both meal plans also include $560 Dining Dollars to use at retail locations such as Chick-fil-A, Aromas at Swem or Daily Grind, Cosi, Qdoba the Student X-Change or even at ‘meal swipe’ locations.
Textbook Rentals

Did you know that there is alternative to buying your textbooks each semester? You can rent them from the W&M Bookstore and save an average of 50%. Plus, it's easy! Simply tell the cashier that you want to rent your books. They just need a credit card to keep on file until the books are returned at the end of the semester. Details can be found on the W&M Bookstore website.
