Class of 1966 Project: Alumni House Expansion

Artist rendering of the Alumni House expansion

As the sixth oldest alumni association in the nation, the William & Mary Alumni Association is focused on fostering the lifelong relationships and culture of engagement alumni have with their alma mater. By expanding the Alumni House, the Alumni Association will gain the much needed capacity to ensure that members of the class of 1965 and all alumni will have a warm and welcoming environment in which to renew friendships and forge new bonds when they return to their lifelong campus home.

In 1995 there were 53,000 alumni and that number has grown to over 92,500 today. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be 108,500 W&M alumni. Plans call for the addition of new meeting spaces, the largest with a capacity for up to 300 people; a business center; gathering spaces for visiting alumni; a catering area; and a new entrance with an expanded reception area to better accommodate our growing alumni body. A dedicated room will feature William & Mary’s history and a display of memorabilia. The Alumni House also will support expanded programing for alumni, students and the William & Mary community. With new and larger spaces, the Alumni House will be a key location for starting the lifelong engagement with students while they are still on campus. The Alumni House will serve as the western gateway to campus and as a visible statement of the importance of alumni to the College.

Current plans estimate the cost of the project to be $8 million. In addition, the Alumni Association is seeking to establish a $2 million building maintenance endowment that will ensure the new facility stands in excellent condition to serve the William & Mary’s growing alumni community for the long term.

The Class of 1966 is taking a leadership role in helping to raise funds for the expansion of the Alumni House by designating it as the class’s 50th reunion project. In recognition of our class gift project, a prominent space in the expanded facility will carry the Class of 1966’s name. Please show your support for the expansion of the Alumni House in ways that others will hear the thunder of our chorus – alma mater hail!
