What is your overall opinion of this school?

When you walk on the campus of William & Mary, you feel like you're walking through time. It's a unique experience that I never had with other colleges I visited, and is a fact that I personally love. There tends to be a culture of stress, but there is no doubt that all the bright minds around you will encourage you to do your best. I am pescatarian (vegetarian + seafood), but even so, I don't have much trouble navigating the dining halls. You're likely to find your favorite go-to if you look hard enough. The small class sizes can be a double whammy, as it can sometimes be difficult to sign up for classes, but once you're in them, the professors are always attentive and know what they're talking about. If academics are important to you, William & Mary is definitely a university to consider on your list.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, William & Mary is a great school, especially if you're more into the academics. There are still plenty of clubs and activities around campus, including sports teams and sororities. The on-campus housing facilities aren't the newest, cleanest, or greatest, but the rooms are larger than some other schools offer. I transferred in this semester and, as someone who really is more interested in the academics but still gets bored sometimes, I've been finding it difficult to find things to do around campus since a lot of the clubs meet on the same day and many of the off-campus options include alcohol. If you get a good group of friends it might not be quite as difficult, but something to consider since Williamsburg is a fairly small town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school. Housing is a pain and not always the best, but worth it for the academics, the people you meet, and the vibe of Williamsburg. If you're a runner, there are endless opportunities for routes outside, all equally gorgeous. Very close to VA Beach if you need a break. If you don't have a car on campus, you can still easily make it to the store and shops around.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

William & Mary is an amazing school for the people who attend it. Although its small and rigorous environment can turn away some, those who end up there are dedicated and thrilled to be there. There is always something intellectually stimulating going on. Many of the students are like minded in their habits and personalities, but the student body as a whole is still incredibly diverse. I have never once met an alumnus or current student who has not loved their time at W&M.

The College of William and Mary is a beautiful campus with rigorous academics and a strong community. Each student can find their own culture and classes to enjoy. The medium size campus is perfect for those looking for a community that they can prosper in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I love William and Mary. It has its issues (ant infestations in freshman dorms, out of date dorms, long renovation times, bland food, and at times, it can be isolating being on campus being situated in such a small area). Despite these issues, the campus is beautiful, you can always find your niche (no matter what you are into, there is a club for it), and the campus is small enough that you'll likely run into someone you know, but it's not a guarantee. William and Mary is also chock -full of opportunities, if anything else, this is what I am most proud of. You can study abroad, participate in research, and join clubs from the moment you get on campus. No matter what social class you are in you can find yourself joining campus-wide leadership positions or doing research (which is reserved for upperclassmen on other campuses). In short, William and Mary is a place for passionate, intelligent people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a really great school. The people are super friendly and involved in all kinds of activities on campus. If you like politics, acting, music, movies, discussion, books, games, or really almost anything else there is a group for you. You really have opportunities to take part in all kinds of activities in addition to the great academics. Food could be better, but there are a lot of great places to go off campus. There are multiple bars across the road from campus, and everything from fast food to fancy restaurants within a few blocks. There are some nice housing options, and some that are lacking. The academics can certainly be challenging, but you will learn a lot, and class sizes are generally very good. Overall, a great place to study. You'll have a respected, valuable degree, and you can take part in a wide variety of activities while you are at William & Mary.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Students are constantly challenged by the academics of the school and the variety of opportunities presented to them that take time away from studying. It is sometimes hard to balance academics with extracurriculars, leadership positions, athletics, and more, however, this lack of free time is a strong indicator that there is always something to do on campus where you will have the best four years that push you to grow intellectually and as a person. There are plenty of traditions and historical backgrounds behind buildings, neighborhood, etc which helps me remind of the richness of the school every day I step foot on campus grounds. Go tribe!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College of William and Mary is a great school. The students are hard-working, the college’s campus is beautiful, the class sizes are well constructed, and the professors are both kind and available to students. People feel so safe around campus that they leave their property, including wallets and cell phones, completely unguarded. If a student is devoted to his or her education, wants to see a lot of great sights in Williamsburg, and loves being stuck in a library all day studying, this is the college to attend. William and Mary’s sporting events have devoted alumni that attend games each time they get the opportunity. The students on the other hand are not so interested. As a school with a reputation for being filled with nerdy (in a good way) people, not many students are devoted to sports. I have seen high school gyms with more pep (and sometimes people) from the crowd than at the college’s Kaplan Arena, which is barely 30% filled sometimes. Many William and Mary students, even on game night, would rather stay in their rooms or the library and study. This college, currently, is not recommended for those who wish to have the basketball experience of those at the University of Virginia, or the football experience of those at Virginia Tech. The students who do show up are energetic but need more help to pump up the volume on game day. The chefs and food distributors at William and Mary are some of the sweetest and best people you will ever meet. The food they cook, however, could be better. There are times when the food is lacking in variety, while the quality of it can be average at best. The best of the foods, in my opinion, are the desserts. The ice cream and treats are as tantalizing as anything some days. It is shocking students do not get cavities just looking at them. The mental health and accessibility services at William and Mary are average-to-above-average, as it stands. The college has done a good job of lifting the “suicide school” cloud that was above it a few years ago. The college, in general, is very supportive of their students. In the past week, when a student was tragically shot, many in the Care Services department were contacted and kindly asked how they were feeling. The college has even gone as far as to give one of its most prestigious dorms to incoming first-year students in need of accommodations. The dorms, in general, at William and Mary are average to excellent, quality-wise. Most of the dorms and their surrounding areas, despite annoying inconveniences like cockroaches, ants, and very bad crosswalks, are nice. The present housing situation at William and Mary, however, is not desirable. Due to a rising need for students with medical needs, dorms under construction, and new housing policies, the college is in a tight squeeze. Hopefully in future years, this issue will be fixed. The College of William and Mary lives up to its reputation as a” Public-Ivy League” school. Its classes and reputation help students prepare for the world, after they graduate. The school’s slogan is “Tribe Pride”, which many seem to feel both during and after their time at William and Mary.
