Royally chartered by King William III and Queen Mary II and founded in 1693, The College of William & Mary is a public institution in eastern Virginia and the second-oldest university in the nation. William and Mary offers bachelor’s degrees in 40 academic majors. In addition, W&M is home to the country’s first law school and Greek letter society, Phi Beta Kappa. Throughout the year, W&M schedules several traditional campus social events from the King & Queen Ball to the Raft Debate, a competition where faculty members entertain the student body with outlandish arguments and displays of logic.
the college of william and mary is: quirky. i have met some of the most amazing, down-to-earth people here; kindness and humor is emphasized, and academic passion is a must. college is what you make of it but w&m will be more than happy to meet you half way!!! :)

While this is no doubt an academically challenging university, it also has a warm environment and supportive community to help students with personal growth. The sense of community here is hard to miss and has provided me with the best friends, professors, peers, opportunities and the best four years of my life! I am grateful to have been able to develop myself in so many different channels while at William and Mary, and incredibly grateful for my time there.
