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!
Review Richard Bland College of the College of William & Mary
Richard Bland is a very nice school in terms of athletics and academics. However, their is no real party scene anymore after the first semester when many students left. Any parties that happen on campus now would probably be shut down.
Also, if you plan on coming here, I would recommend bringing food if you want to stay on campus. The cafe is the only place on campus to eat, but the food choices are very repetitive and mostly unhealthy and you will tire of them quickly. Other food options is driving somewhere (because there is no place in walking distance) to get food or ordering from the two or three small business that deliver here.
If Richard Bland was to build more places to eat, and have all rooms be singles, I think the school would improve tremulously.
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!
