Happy Birthday W&M

by Elizabeth Cavallari

Today celebrates 320 years of the birth of the College of William & Mary by Royal Charter. While the Law School was founded in 1779, the College’s Royal Charter was issued on February 8, 1693.

Formal activities include a ceremony for the entire campus at 4 pm, an Alumni Medallion ceremony that will recognize three alumni, and a concert Saturday evening.

Here at the Law School, Chancellor Robert M. Gates, ’65, Former U.S. Secretary of Defense, opened the room to questions to students, faculty, and staff this morning before returning to Charter Day activities on main campus.
