Tour the Sir Christopher Wren building, which holds the title of the oldest college building in the United States, and view the small chapel located inside. Admire the old architecture and rolling hills of campus, and imagine what life was like during Colonial Williamsburg. If you're brave enough, go on a guided Ghost Tour to hear campus legends and spooky tales. Many seminars remain open to the public, so find one to sit in on if you thirst for knowledge. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Williamsburg fast, fun, and easy.

Great historical university. Second oldest chartered school in the country after Harvard. You can tour the restored Christopher Wren building, the original campus building. Walk the historic grounds. Also, a great school with many undergraduate and graduate degrees offered.
The three years I spent at William and Mary were the best three years of my life. My professors were passionate, caring, understanding, knowledgeable, and experienced. My friends were exceptional and inspirational, while I was given so many opportunities to learn and grow. I am especially indebted to the endless support I received from the Writing Center, the Career Center, the Counseling Center, Reves Center for International Studies, and the Student Engagement and Leadership Office, and can't wait to pay it forward.
