William and Mary provides a superior education; a student can expect rigorous coursework with engaging requirements beyond sitting in 500 person classes and handing in anonymous assignments, but from this work, the student will learn to write well, read and do independent work, make sound and convincing arguments, and will learn how to learn—not just learn how to beat a test.

The social life is not what one would expect from a school in urban NY, but the campus community yields many opportunities for fun. Frat parties do get old, but hanging out at coffee shops listening to live music, wandering around the beautiful campus, many academic activities, recsports, and trips out of the Burg do provide some opportunity for fun. Admittedly, to most students this takes a back seat to their studies, so be warned … however, most W&M students are friendly and interesting people, even if they can be uberserious about school.

W&M is a good experience; a great value for in-state students, and a quality education in a very small and personal setting. It isn't for everyone, but no school is.
