(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Familiarize yourself with one of the country's most historically important educational institutions, College of William & Mary. Founded in 1693, the university is the second oldest in the United States and has educated four of the country's presidents, including Thomas Jefferson. Tour the Sir Christopher Wren building, which holds the title of the oldest college building in the United States, and view the small chapel located inside. Admire the old architecture and rolling hills of campus, and imagine what life was like during Colonial Williamsburg. If you're brave enough, go on a guided Ghost Tour to hear campus legends and spooky tales. Many seminars remain open to the public, so find one to sit in on if you thirst for knowledge.
