My advice to potential students is to do your homework. (this doesn't mean work required for your degree) It means to check out your choice of college fully. I thought I had at the time, but was very disappointed.
I think the primary reason for my disappointment was that I was a transfer student from a junior college. Friendships had been forged between students and frankly, I didn't feel welcome to the school as a transfer student. I felt like a fish out of water there. I generally make friends quite easily, but in that particular environment, I found it difficult.
I don't remember an orientation program or a welcoming program. Perhaps that may have helped.
If I had to do it again I would not choose this college. My junior college was THE perfect college experience and I am happy that now they went to being a 4 year institution.
I have recommended this college but only on the basis that it is known for having good physical therapy and nursing programs. It is constantly expanding its facility to provide more programs.
Chancellors at the College of William and Mary have included some very famous retired statesmen, including Margaret Thatcher (UK Prime Minister), Henry Kissinger (US Secretary of State), Warren E. Burger (US Chief Justice), and, currently, Sandra Day O'Connor (US Associate Justice).
