College of William and Mary Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about College of William and Mary? Why?


The worst thing for me was just how small it was. The student community did not really venture outside of the campus walls because there wasn't much to do beyond them.


The cost of Living in a University is very expensive. Not only is laundry a real issue to have to deal with but eating on an on-campus restraurant will leave you broke for the rest of your collegiate career. I wish it was less expensive to have a social life in a University.


The worst thing about William and Mary would have to be the night life. Not much around campus is open past 9:00 pm, and there isn't a lot to do.


The uniformity of the socio-economic status of the students who attend. I would describe the most of them as being upper-middle class to incredibly wealthy.


By far the worst thing about my school is not having enough time in a day to do everything. As an active college student, like most college students are, I find it nearly impossible to do everything I want to do within the confines of a 24 hour day. It's just simply not possible to eat three meals, go to classes, study, attend meetings, hang out with friends, and make those big dreams become a reality within a day. College students dream big - we need bigger days to help us achieve our dreams!


The work load and the lack of a social life.


The worst thing about our school are the brick walkways. Even though they look gorgeous with our historic campus, it is a risk everytime you step out of a dorm. No matter if you wear flip flops, sneakers, boots, and especially heels, you have a high chance of twisting of an ankle.


Students are at times too self-involved. many of the students here become caught up in their studies and their extra-curricular activities, so much so that they miss out on friendships, reality, and even their basic surroundings.


Most of the guys are not attractive, and you have to put in a lot of effort to have a fun social life. You can't just walk down the street and find a lot of crazy parties.


We are a great community but losing lots of money due to budget cuts from the government and very conservative alumni who don't always approve of the current forward-thinking, more accepting current students and more recent alumni.
