The Esperanto Club of William & Mary was founded in 2008 by Nicholas Woods "To promote the knowledge of the language Esperanto and to create opportunities to learn, speak, and appreciate the language" 1. The club was briefly affiliated with Hello WM (a no longer active student-led language teaching program), but maintained its own autonomy.

Esperanto is a constructed language designed to be easy to learn and facilitate international communication.

A note about the contents of this site

This website contains the best available information from known sources at the time it was written. Unfortunately, many of the early original records of William & Mary were destroyed by fires, military occupation, and the normal effects of time. The information in this website is not complete, and it changes as we continue to research and uncover new sources.
