“Great atmosphere and architecture!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

The campus is what gives Williamsburg most of it's charm with the countless displays of colonial architecture and history. It's what convinced us to move here.

“Fine Colonial Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

As college campuses go, William and Mary is among the prettier. The second oldest univ. in the U.S.(1693) after Harvard, the campus uniformly maintains its beautiful colonial architecture--lots of red brick and white columns. The campus, located in the center of Williamsburg and a stone's throw from colonial Williamsburg, the campus is worth a stop.

“Day for Admitted Sudents”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We've visited the College before the admission, as it was the first choice college for our daughter. I was more in favor of the UVA, but she was resolute. The weather was wonderful. The visit made me feel better about her choice and campus safety. Nice learning environment, especially felt good to be in-state and not pay double for education, but I can see why people from other states want to be part of it.

“What an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

On a recent school tour, my students loved it, its beautiful. We ate in the student cafeteria and the staff was so thoughtful of my students. The food was good and plentiful and the kids enjoyed speaking to the current students to get ideas about going away to college.
