Campus Visit Notes for College of William & Mary
I've talked to couple students at William and Mary, and they all seem like they are in love with the school. They all welcomed me with the smiles. We talked about the 2008 presidential election a bit, and it seems like all the people I've talked to were politically left-leaning. I think the campus has a large majority of liberal students, but also an outspoken conservatives. I went to the caf, and the food was good too.
One thing that turned me off was the Greek scene at William and Mary.--They have 30% student population who are in Greek. I noticed lots of girls with their Sorority Greek letter stuffs, like t-shirts and bags. Just to compare the school to UVa, I liked William and Mary MUCH BETTER, because of the small scale and diversity. I really felt the sense of community while I was at William and Mary, and I loved all the students didn't care whether they looked geeky or nerdy. They all seemes very diligent at learning and studying. The school has a intellectually stimulationg atmosphere and you can feel it just by being on the campus for couple minutes. Everyone was studying and I was surprised by how many students read and walk at the same time. I felt intimidated and it really made me want to study more!

It seems like you don't really need a car if you live on campus...I know that there's a public bus system.
