“You have to be a certain type ofQuite BrightEconomics
You have to be a certain type of person to enjoy William & Mary. I was not one of them. This student population prides itself on being "openminded" and "quirky", but the problem is, everyone here is "quirky" in the exact same way. In other words, nobody is. They just think they are. They love to pat themselves on the back. I do too, but from the comfort of my dorm, away from everyone else. If I sound like a grumpy troll, I wasn't always this way. I have a feeling William & Mary had something to do with that.The teachers are pretty nice though.
The students at William and Mary are friendly and passionate, and usually inspiring in some way. Make friends here, because the time you spend with them - discussing ideas from an Intro to Philosophy class into the early hours of the morning, going out to some parties for the night, or streaking the Sunken Gardens - will shape the way that you grow in college even more than the coursework will. Your time here will be meaningful in ways you couldn't anticipate.
