William & Mary Reviews
At this point the only thing keeping W&M relevant is its academic reputation, but if you want a good overall college experience, look elsewhere. There are plenty of other options in VA (UVA, Tech, UofR, GMU) that are comparable in academics while harboring healthier and better environments for students' social, mental, and physical wellbeing. Do yourself a favor and think twice before you go here.
(Side note: this is not the school for pursuing the arts. Humanities, yes. Music, theatre, or other performing arts, definitely not.)
