Going to William and Mary has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. First, the academic possibilities are limitless. The faculty here treats you as individuals are willing to accommodate your learning needs, whether you are struggling with a particular topic or is doing great and want to study the topic in greater depth. The university lends strong support to undergraduate research, and there are numerous opportunities for students to pursue research opportunities across the nation and around the world. Second, William and Mary has a very diverse student population and students generally keep a very open mind. Whatever you 'scene' - be it jocks, nerds, and everything in between - the chances of you finding somewhere you 'belong' is very high. Third, the university has excellent supporting services such as free counselling, a superb sports center, a very helpful writing center, and excellent research librarians.

I LOVED my time at William & Mary! The campus is gorgeous, but more importantly, the student body was friendly, outgoing, inclusive and FUN! My daughter is attending William and Mary for many of the same reasons that I chose it 30 years ago :)

I am a international student studying the William and Mary - St Andrews Joint Degree program, majoring in Economics. Going to William and Mary has been one of the best decisions of my life. The academic atmosphere is very conductive to learning - professors generally demand excellence, and are keen to provide all the help you need to achieve that. Every professor has a few 'office hours' per week, when you can just drop in and ask questions and discuss the course. Professors are genuinely happy to see you go their office hours and often go the extra mile to help you. The student body is very cohesive, with a strong emphasis on helping each other. It is also incredibly diverse in terms of social class, race, academic interests, and down right quirkiness. It is a place where people are not afraid of being different. All in all, W&M is what a liberal arts college should be: opening, tolerant, friendly, and tight-knit. If you are open to new challenges and take initiatives, you will be rewarded handsomely in this university.
