william and mary is a school focused on academics and community. everyone here is generous, from the students and professors to the cafeteria faculty and staff. the school is rooted in tradition but committed to progression.

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.
