You will find great professors at William and Mary, and not just in the upper level courses. There will always be the dud teachers, but most truly want to be there to teach, not just to do research. It the ideal place for them to do both and they are very passionate about students and involving them in their research.

    I’m in my third year here, and I love it! The campus is gorgeous and colonial Williamsburg is practically in your backyard, courses are definitely academically challenging, and there really is a place for everyone because of all the different organizations on campus. The only downside I have found is that there is somewhat of a culture of stress, and a feeling that in order to be successful you should be stressed; this has lead to a large mental health problem on campus.

    William and Mary is academically challenging, rigorous, but the BEST time of my life! You're provided with ample academic, curricular, and social opportunities during the school year and you will make lifelong friendships. It sounds cliche, but there is no place I would rather be.

    I loved it as soon as I stepped on campus!! Everything is so close and all the buildings look old, but they are all updated inside. Colonial Williamsburg is right across the street and the campus is absolutely gorgeous!

    the students are hard-working. there are lots of nice shops right off campus. academics are emphasized over sports and greek life, but all are to be found.

    Rigorous academics but professors that want the best for you and are extremely willing to help. Beautiful campus in the heart of Williamsburg, steps away from Colonial Williamsburg. True sense of family and belonging once you join The Tribe!!!

    The campus is beautiful. It's extremely close to Colonial Williamsburg and not to far from Busch Gardens. There's plenty to be done during free time.
