His Own Words
“It has been my experience that Marshall-Wythe is very proud of those who’ve served in the military and treats veterans with the utmost respect. The atmosphere here is one of complete appreciation from faculty and staff and students alike. I believe that the core principles and ideals that embodied military service are synonymous with the ideology of the Citizen Lawyer. Faithful service to the community and country are presented proudly in the every day lives and lessons of the William and Mary community.”
