3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Few people do drugs on campus and most that do will not care whether or not you do drugs yourself.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors care a lot and the small class sizes make it easy to participate. Professors push you to do your best and are always available if you need help or have any kind of question. They really make an effort to support you.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I know that I will definitely get a job immediately or soon after college. with my degree, and the help from the career center I feel very prepared for working in a professional environment.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I dont have much experience with insecurity on campus or security measures.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: it's typical dorm life. most of the dorms could use updating but they arent awful. the washing machines freshman year were always broken though

3 College Senior

Greek Life: greek life seems less intense here than at other schools, which i think is really nice. people dont care if youre in greek life or not.

3 College Senior

Athletics: people are not very interested in sports at william and mary. stadiums are rarely filled. our gym is really good though.

3 College Senior

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class variety is very good and the size of the classes is great. Like at any school, the professor quality can vary. I've gotten some absolutely wonderful professors and some okay ones.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've attended multiple seminars at the career center that were helpful and gotten advice on job opportunities. They are very helpful and I am sure that my degree will be useful in getting me a job.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is going to be an issue on any college campus. William and Mary has a lot of resources for victims of sexual assaults and required seminars about sexual assault.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing quality depends on what building you get put in. There are some great options for upperclassmen like a converted hotel or apartments that still count as on campus housing, but freshman dorms vary in quality and size.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Speaking about sorority life (not necessarily fraternity life), it is a lot more low-key at William and Mary than most schools. Rush is not as intense and set up to maximize the chances of getting a bid. I have friends in other sororities and hang out with them often, but I also still feel connected to my own sorority.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student involvement is not the best, but it is steadily growing. Our sports are decent, but not everyone cares. The athletics fan club has tripled in numbers in the last year so this could change. Everyone has plenty of school spirit though.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the students strive to do well, but in a non-competitive type way. Everyone is very self-motivated and passionate about something.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Blue lights are installed pretty much everywhere they would need to be. I feel very comfortable leaving my things around, and it seems like nobody really feels threatened at all.

Campus Housing: There are a lot of options. I wish that they had made the housing process a bit more clear though, as I made a mistake my first time registering.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I am non-Greek, but I tend to really like the people who are involved with Greek life. You generally can't even tell who is because they mix so well with the rest of the student population. It seems like it is just another thing they do and that they do it because they enjoy the camaraderie and parties. They have houses on campus, which are pretty nice, and they generally seem well behaved. To me, that is pretty much perfect.

Athletics: People definitely go to the gym, and generally they are happy with it. As for the teams, they have generally done very well this year. From baseball to basketball to football, all have performed well and seem like they are improving. We do not normally play at the highest national levels, but when we do, the games are often at least competitive.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Everything important has been excellent! From academics to my fellow students (especially my fellow students) things here have been pretty much exactly what I was looking for. The people are nice, they are involved, and there is still a bit of partying. The school is certainly focused on academics, but not to the exclusion of all else.

Health & Safety: Williamsburg is a safe city and the campus police do a great job keeping us safe.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some buildings are super nice, while some are roach-infested and have no AC. It's really luck of the draw.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
