The student body calls W&M
the nerd school of Virginia
and in many ways it's true. This isn't a party school and a good number of people never attend sports events. You are far more likely to meet people involved in a student organization, like dance or ultimate frisbee. People study a lot here, but I found that (except around exams) they could take time out for social lives as well.

The chemistry program tended to be a little lax I think. It's not a big on research, but there are some new pieces of equiptment and nice size budgets for most of the research groups. All my chemistry classes were taught by professors (not TAs) and there was ample oppurtunity to do research, but you need to pursue it if you want to do it before your senior year. It's not a big name but you can learn a lot and have an excellent relationship with your professors (ie great recommendation for grad school or employment).
