I stayed in the student dorms a few years ago while attending a conference. I actually enjoyed eating in the cafeteria and chatting with a few of the students. I walked around the grounds and felt that they were doing an excellent job of upkeep of the campus. Coupled with their strong academic reputation and attention to detail, I would... More

No dislikes If I had a child I would definitely send him or her there. Historical Value is a plus in my book. Pretty campus, seems easy to get around and has a great view.

A beautiful old university on the Hampton River. The grounds were meticulously groomed. The Clock tower has never been replace and is in excellent condition. I would have like to have gone in the church on campus but time was not with us. Maybe next time.
