The College of William & Mary is the premier institution of higher learning in Virginia. The academic programs are selective and challenging, the faculty is extremely knowledgeable, and the grounds and buildings are well-maintained. I attended W&M for four years worth of undergraduate school and had a blast! Students are generally serious and focused on academics, but the school also manages to have a decent athletic program. William & Mary is highly recommended for anyone wishing to study in the Hampton Roads area, especially those who qualify for in-state tuition ... it's like getting a Harvard education for much, much less!
