There are many facilities available for entertainment, exercise, and, inevitably, schoolwork. Entertainment-wise, there is a game and common area on the first floor of the Sadler Center, where students can unwind in front of a row of flat-screen televisions, play pool, or regress to their childhood days on the pinball machines. There is also the Students' X-Change, located on the first floor, where students can purchase menial groceries, snacks, and last-minute school supplies, all of which can be bought with the school-provided "flex points" (the money allotted for on-campus restaurants rather than the dining halls). The main exercise facility is the Rec Center, where there are endless rows of workout machinery, a rock wall, a weight-lifting room, multipurpose gymnasiums, a pool, and a huge basketball court. It is one of the most beloved facilities at William & Mary, especially when utilized as a means to relieve pent up stress during and after finals.
Though the Rec Center is cherished by many, the Swem Library is undoubtedly the savior in terms of facilities at the College. With the amount of work assigned in W&M classes, it's no wonder kids are relieved at the sight of this library. It has helpful employees, computers on every floor, and its collection of databases, books, articles, and movies is not only vast, but also downright enviable to other libraries in the nation. The big and beautiful business school has also become a favorite study area for a lot of students, and it also has a resource center.
