Founded in 1693, The College of William & Mary is the second-oldest university in the nation and royally chartered by King William III and Queen Mary II. Situated in Williamsburg, VA, the school has the oldest university structure in the country. The Public Ivy is home to the country’s first law school and Greek letter society, Phi Beta Kappa. The College of William & Mary ranks highly on several lists, including the #10 Public College by Forbes.
This school has a great mixture of the benefits of a private school (size, classes taught by faculty, conveniences), but also the benefits of a public school (in-state tuition is a steal)! People are friendly and passionate, more devoted students cannot be found anywhere, but they also are interesting and engaging. The school has an environment that fosters academics, but the community enables people to make friendships that last a lifetime.
