Why William & Mary?
- Founded in 1693, William & Mary is the second oldest educational institution in the U.S. Although Harvard began operation first, William & Mary’s antecedents actually predate those of the Massachusetts institution.
- Four US Presidents benefited from educational programs offered by the College: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and John Tyler.
- William & Mary ranked 32nd overall in national rankings and the College maintained its spot as the sixth-best public university in the country, according to the 2018 U.S. News & World Report. William & Mary is one of the 8 Public Ivy universities.
- The College’s student/faculty ratio of 11/1 is the lowest among the top public universities–and comparable to those at the nation’s top 25 schools. In addition, nearly 50 percent of William & Mary’s classes have fewer than 20 students.
