ACADEMIC ADVISING PHILOSOPHY
Sound academic advice can make the crucial difference between a coherent and exciting education that satisfies personal and professional goals and one that is fragmented and frustrating. Academic advising is recognized at the College as important to the development of its students, a natural extension of teaching and an important professional obligation on the part of its faculty.

FACILITY ENHANCEMENT UNDER DRISCOLL In his 16 years of guiding the William and Mary Athletic Department, Athletics Director Terry Driscoll has overseen a significant number of facility enhancements for a number of Tribe’s athletic programs. It total, W&M has dedicated nearly $30 million to facilities enhancements under Driscoll. Here is a look at some of the facility enhancements on Driscoll’s watch: • In the Summer of 2010, the commitment of a significant gift to fully fund the addition of MARTIN FAMILY STADIUM to Albert-Daly Field, the home of Tribe soccer and lacrosse. Named in honor of Eff and Patty Martin, and their children, Andrew, Christine and Julia ’09, the facility, which was completed in the spring of 2011, includes a 1,000-seat pavilion, which features a state-of-the-art press box, filming positions and restroom facilities. • The $11 million, 30,000-square foot JIMMYE LAYCOCK FOOTBALL CENTER (dedicated in June 2008). • $7 million specifically for men’s basketball and the naming of KAPLAN ARENA for the gift from Jim (Class of ’57) and Jane Kaplan (Class of ’56).
• Upgrades to ZABLE STADIUM, including a permanent lighting system (2005), new artificial playing surface (Field Turf Pro) in 2006, a new video scoreboard (2007) and a new tartan allweather synthetic track surface (2008). • The recently completed renovation to BUSCH FIELD with a new playing surface, AstroTurf 12™, underlying pad and drainage systems to create a competition surface that ranks alongside that used at the U.S. National Training Centers in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Chula Vista, California and that used at the 2008 Olympic Games. • The construction of PLUMERI PARK, home of Tribe baseball, in 1999 due in large part to the generous donation by Joseph J. Plumeri II (Class of 1966). • The $1 million natural grass facility for soccer and lacrosse, ALBERT-DALY FIELD, (dedicated in August 2004) was made possible by longtime athletic benefactors Jim and Bobbie Ukrop (classes of ’60 and ’61, respectively). • Busch Courts opened in September of 2001 as the home for Tribe tennis, includes eight individual hard courts, stadium seating for 500 people and state-of-the-art lighting system. In the spring of 2010, the college honored long-time Tribe staff member Millie West by naming the facility the MILLIE WEST TENNIS FACILITY.
TERRY DRISCOLL Director of Athletics 16th Year at W&M
Under the steady guidance and watchful eye of Terry Driscoll, the William and Mary Athletics Department has solidified its standing as one of the nation’s preeminent broadbased programs. As Driscoll enters his 16th year as athletics director, he has overseen an unprecedented era of improvement in terms of funding and facilities while also maintaining the College’s rich history of producing well-rounded student-athletes. Driscoll oversees a program that is committed to balancing academic demands with athletic success. One of the department’s stated goals each year is to finish among the top 100 in the annual Director’s Cup rankings, which has happened in all but one of the years that Driscoll has been the director. In the last eight years, the Tribe’s program has combined for a total of 33 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) titles. This past season, W&M claimed four CAA titles (Football, Men’s Cross Country, Men’s Soccer and Women’s Tennis). Overall, no institution in the CAA can claim more all-time league championships than William and Mary (102), and in 2011, the College became the first league program with over 100 conference titles.
