  • I have a relative attending William and Mary currently. The campus here is gorgeous. I have been several times down to the campus to take my relative different places around Williamsburg. (My relative doesn't own a car, he lives on campus) I love coming down here just to see the beautiful campus. I look forward to my relative's calls to come and pick him up. I will say one thing though. Recently my relative went to the Rowe House, which has the "Confucius Institute" from China. The staff there were very disrespectful and told him to leave after he started asking questions about Mao Zedong, an old leader in China. Before he even started asking questions about Mao Zedong they had a disrespectful attitude and were rude. They seem to be giving William and Mary a bit of a bad name. According to my relative and his friends. Hopefully someone at William and Mary w/a bit of authority will start to come down on the "Confucius Institute" and tell them to properly talk and respect guests.
  • bad school do not go to that shcool poop they say it is good just because thomas jefferson went there
  • A wonderful place to go to school. The campus is gorgeous, the classes are small and taught by professors, and the degree opens doors to just about anywhere. In my opinion it's the best school in Virginia and one of the best universities in the country.
  • Best business school in the nation for an MBA
  • Beautiful campus. High quality education.
