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 It has its issues (ant infestations in freshman dorms, out of date dorms, long renovation times, bland food, and at times, it can be isolating being on campus being situated in such a small area).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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus of W&M is wonderful, serene and peaceful. The traffic is moderate and both the driver and pedestrians are polite. What is more important is that all the buildings carry a lot of history and the continuity of history, giving one a great sense of honor and responsibility. It is so inspiring that you feel you are part of a wonderful history of our country.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

William & Mary is a home for the intellectually curious, the socially engaged, and the unabashedly passionate. The professors and students engage in lively discussions over scholarship, research, and general life. I have never been in a place where so many care so deeply about their peers and their world. Truly, William & Mary students strive to make a difference, and an education here will prepare you for global conversation.

The college has a very small class size for students to get more focused help from their teachers. The environment is very welcoming and the campus has a nice combination of nature. There are multiple sports activities at this college and clubs for students to participate in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have always felt so at home in Williamsburg. I am extremely proud and grateful to be part of such a diverse, accepting, and unique community that fosters both academic and personal growth. What makes William and Mary so distinct is its consistent offering of opportunities for anyone and everyone: there is such a wide range of clubs, organizations, activities, and causes to participate in, but you will obviously never be forced into anything. To be candid, I never knew for sure how I would like attending this school; after only a few months, however, I came to realize everything that I could have missed out on had I chosen another college. All in all, William and Mary is characterized by an environment that really cannot be justified in words, and can only be known if you are lucky enough to join the tribe. I will never come to regret my decision to attend the school, and am thankful to be making so many memories that I will look back on through the rest of my life endeavors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

(1) Most people are quite friendly (2) Professors are highly accessible (3) Most people are pretty liberal but not outspoken about their political belief About 10-20% of students are narrow-minded, radical leftists who deem everything racist, sexist, homophobic, and these people will hate you for what you believe(if you are a typical conservative/libertarian/Hillary supporter) (4) Most people are from Nova or Richmond (5) Chemistry, biology, physics, geology, international relations and government are some of the good programs. History program is pretty good but there are many very politicized classes.
