The College of William & Mary

The College of William & Mary

William & Mary is unlike any other university in America. 

We’re the second oldest college in the nation, but also a cutting-edge research university. We’re a "Public Ivy" — one of only eight in the nation — offering a world-class education at an exceptional value. 

Our students are not only some of the smartest in the world, but passionate about serving others and serious about having fun. Our professors are teachers, scholars and research mentors, the cornerstone of a thriving intellectual community that produces experienced, engaged, successful graduates.

One Tribe

When a group of William & Mary students get together, incredible things happen. There’s an energy here that inspires and motivates, whether that means doing original scientific research as a sophomore, organizing a medical outreach trip to Central America or reaching for new heights on the indoor climbing wall

There’s something exhilarating about being surrounded by so many smart, fun people. Why do you think we have more than 450 student clubs and organizations? Everyone wants to join in. Everyone has ideas. Everybody wants to squeeze one more activity in between physics lab, a cappella practice and open mic night at Lodge One.

We’re proud to be part of a lively, engaged, diverse community of students, professors, administration and staff who believe that there’s no better place in the world than William & Mary.
