Richard Bland College of the College of William & Mary Reviews

If you are truly a person who needs attention when picking out the right classes, this school is for you just because the student mentors are great at their jobs and make you feel apart of something bigger. Professors are friendly and helpful, there are a lot of classes to choose from, and the class sizes are small enough for your professor to know you personally. It's great!
Everything is easy for transferring credits just because they have you on a two year student success plan once you register for your first classes. If you follow the plan, you will get by stress free. Trust the system!
There are some professors on this campus who I love. They invest time, do everything possible to help you understand the material, and are incredibly flexible. Don't think that when you come to Richard Bland your grades will be a piece of cake, getting an A will be difficult. You will have to invest deeply in studying and pay attention in class. Other professors aren't as dedicated to their students. Sometimes inaccessible, these professors are difficult to understand, and their material is (as typical, per Richard Bland) very difficult. Ask around before you take a class - you need to get in with the right professor. You can't BS your way through these classes. I'd say Richard Bland's academics are rigorous -- it's sad that the reputation of the school doesn't reflect that.
