About College of William & Mary

The College of William and Mary in Virginia is one of only eight "Public Ivies" in the United States. This means it offers a superior education at a cost significantly below the Ivy League schools. It maintains a low 12:1 teaching ratio, the lowest of any public university in the United States. The college was founded in 1693 and is the second-oldest university in the United States after Harvard University. It became publicly supported in 1906.

William and Mary is known for being the Alma Mater of U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and John Tyler and for its many 'firsts' which include: the first honor code; the first college fraternity; and the first college to become a university. Its historic campus in Williamsburg includes the oldest college building in the United States, the Christopher Wren building. Unique traditions include the annual 'Raft Debate' where students choose which professor to 'save' based on how well they argue in support of the value of their academic field.

William and Mary offers a broad range of undergraduate degrees, several graduate programs and four professional schools for Business, Education, Law and Marine Science. 6,285 undergraduates and 2,455 graduate students are currently enrolled (2017-18).
