Greek Life: The greeks are some of the more normal people on campus. If you do not fit the normal TWAMP (Typical William and Mary Person) personality and are not an athlete, I would suggest joining a greek organization.

Greek Life: If you want to party and are not an athlete you have to go greek. WM will never be known as a school that throws down hard but for the best glimpse of it, join a fraternity or sorority. Any other organization who thinks they can keep up doesn't know what they're talking about.

Nightlife: If you're a guy who isn't on a sports team, you have to join greek life to attend decent parties every weekend as all the respectable fraternities will not let random people into their parties. Girls have more flexibility since they can get usually get in regardless but being in a sorority is useful. There are five bars so it gets pretty old after four years but if you have good friends to go out with you can usually find a good time. All the good parties are at fraternity houses off campus.

Athletics: There is very little school spirit when it comes to varsity athletic events. The teams generally are not very good and fans do not go support them unless there is a promotion or have somehow made it into a big game. The facilities are fairly nice for both athletes and regular students. IM sports like flag football and soccer are relatively popular. I have no idea what the club sport scene is like.

Campus Housing: The best way to have a good time is move off campus immediately. You can live in a house or apartment for cheaper than a dorm.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: It's a smart person school so there are a ton of weird people that don't bring much to the table. In general people are really friendly. The guys tend to be pretty normal and would fit in at schools that are actually fun. There are not very many attractive girls and the ones who are tend to be really stuck up even though they are nothing special.

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Strict about the wrong issues, ie. parking.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Haven't been to one athletic event in 3 years

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life is slowly becoming the largest population on campus

5 College Senior

Academics: Hardworking school with hard classes and excellent professors.

4 College Senior

Academics: English and History majors have endless utility and professors are challenging.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Paths on campus in the woods need to be lit up.

3 College Senior

Diversity: William and Mary prides itself on its diversity.

College Senior

Scholarships: I never applied for financial aid or scholarships.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing needs to be completely renovated.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: You get used to it... 4 bars.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: there isn't much variety besides your standard fast food stops and the olive garden. Food is either at really expensive 5 star restaurants or really cheap and poor quality fast food joints.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Dealing with sexual assault is an issue that W&M could improve on.

College Senior

Diversity: To me, William and Mary seems pretty diverse but I came from a high school that wasn't that diverse at all so W&M might just seem more diverse to me than it actually is.

5 College Senior

Facilities: This campus is wonderful. It's beautiful and offers plenty of student amenities.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Great selection of restaurants from chains to local restaurants.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Sports seem readily available for the students who would like to join them.

Something that is nearly tangible upon arrival at William & Mary is the love students share for their campus, their dedicated teachers, and their fellow student colleagues. The strong sense of community is what appeals to so many students who come from all over the United States (and some other countries, as well—there's a growing British population!) to feel like they have found their home away from home.

When asked if they would choose William & Mary again for their college experience if given a second chance, most students eagerly reply with a "Yes!" The College, though relatively tame and quiet, truly embodies the collegiate experience. It has a gorgeous campus with gardens equipped for lazy, Frisbee-throwing afternoons. It has devoted professors and staff who truly want students to succeed. Most importantly, it has students who have an overarching sense of pride for their school, their friends, and the young men and women William & Mary has helped them become.
