Talk about a piece of American History. This college is beautiful and if it could only talk!!! What stories are hidden hear about our forefathers and the beginnings of our Nation. How remarkable that is continues to grow with our Nation and educate our youth.

Have had a daughter graduate from W&M; beautiful colonial architecture in the older parts of campus; wonderful traditions that tightly bind students to the university; high academic rigor throughout the curriculum (they make you really earn that degree); W&M students have free access to historic Williamsburg and to the local bus system; among the highest in-state tuition rates for Virginia; it's location by a swamp makes for high humidity in hot weather; easy to find a hotel room when visiting

I will say nothing about the College as an institution other than to say it is highly regarded and students are know to work VERY hard. The architecture is worth looking at, including one of the oldest (maybe the oldest) college building in the U.S., Wren Hall.
