Information Session: Yes - I had to sit through it twice, the video was funny the first time, irritating the second time. Very friendly &informative but keep in mind it is an information session, its the facts.

Campus Tour: Yes - I toured twice and loved it both times. Everyone is SO friendly and welcoming. It's breathtaking, and yes colonial but its cool.

Campus Visit Notes for College of William & Mary


Visit Description:

I dont feel like filling this out because I'll be repeating what I've already said. Overall everyone is very down to earth and the campus is gorgeous. The town is a nice historical town, probably more geared towards tourists than college students but theres plenty to do regardless of what others will say. I loved it so much so that I'm applying early decision. There's nothing bad to say about the school unless the surrounding area isn't for you, but its perfect for me.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

Eat ANYWHERE in town, the food is great.
