The campus of William and Mary is beautiful. Whether you're hanging out at the sunken gardens or taking a stroll around the trails by Lake Matoaka, you're in for a visual treat! You have access to historical sites such as Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown. Teachers work toward student success through challenging classes. The fitness facilities on campus are great and even include racquetball courts, a rock climbing facility, an indoor pool, saunas, and a massage room. The food isn't gourmet, but certainly adequate. There are plenty of organizations to get involved with on campus and the school puts on plenty of extra-curricular activities for students to enjoy. For those that have a car, it is also conveniently located right next to a theme park (Busch Gardens), central between Richmond and Virginia Beach, and about equidistant to Charlottesville and Washington D.C. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at William & Mary and would highly recommend it.

Attending William and Mary was the perfect choice for me. The academics are amazing, and it was so cool to take classes in the oldest standing academic building in the country! The school offers intramural and club sports, Greek life, student entertainment and activities, language housing, and a lot more. The school has a rich history and is close by to Colonial Williamsburg. It is also close to Busch Gardens and plenty of local restaurants. Virginia Beach is only an hour away and the city of Richmond is only 45 minutes away. Going to W&M was the best choice I ever made!

A highlight of W&M- No emphasis on varsity, large participation in club, nice rec center. Varsity sports teams are their own communities, constantly training so we never see them! Football games are decently well attended, especially homecoming. Club sports are a highlight of my W&M experience. I joined the sailing team and found my home with a great group of friendly sailors who welcomed me and showed me the ropes- both literally and figuratively. Some club sports hang out and party almost as much as greeks- especially rugby. They are a great social option if you want to stay fit and/or be social. The rec center is nice too, with a dedicated weight room floor, basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc etc and brand new machines near the cardio. The weight room can get a bit bro-y with the frat guys wearing their letters while lifting. I've heard good reviews of the fitness classes too.
