The second oldest school in the United States, the College of William & Mary is a “Public Ivy” located in Williamsburg, Virginia, a city known for the historic recreation of Colonial Williamsburg. This is a college of great American traditions, such as each class beginning and ending the collegiate experience by parading through the Wren Building, the oldest college building still in use in the U.S. It is also a college of great American modern education where the finishing touches are being added to a new science facility, where students can study at both the College and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and where over 60% of students double major or minor. And while you are on campus, look for Thomas Jefferson. The statue was given by the University of Virginia to the College of William & Mary, Jefferson’s alma mater.
