    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    AN HISTORIC & HONORABLE COLLEGE

    From the moment I entered, the campus felt like home. Students interacted with my tour guide and myself, and the tour guide ensured that I knew every possible detail she could give. I loved learning about the history, diversity, and academics, and I knew William & Mary was the perfect choice for me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The COLL Curriculum is very straightforward, and allows students to create an education specific to their own academic needs! Although I have only had positive experiences, I have witnessed the very few students attempting to transfer struggle to apply these credits to other schools? curricula.
