Student Life

 At William & Mary, we encourage our LL.M. students to participate in life outside the classroom, whether through other organizations at the College or by taking advantage of the attractions our town has to offer.

The Reves Center for International Studies supports international students at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and offers a variety of programs and events on campus.  The Reves Center is an excellent resource, with information on topics from student visas to health insurance to local international restaurants and grocery stores.

The College has an active Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, which holds different programs and celebrations throughout the year.  With more than 25 multicultural organizations on campus, there are plenty of ways to get involved.

Looking for a job?  Students with F-1 visas are permitted to work on-campus, so peruse the listing of available positions at the College. LL.M. students with an F-1 visa may also be eligible to participate in one year of Optional Practical Training in the United States after graduation.

Williamsburg offers easy access to a host of local attractions.  Experience the living history at Colonial Williamsburg, adjacent to the William & Mary campus; travel down the Colonial Parkway to the Revolutionary War battle site of Yorktown; or visit America's first permanent settlement at Jamestown on the James River. For those seeking an adrenaline rush, the rollercoasters and other thrill rides at Busch Gardens will surely fit the bill.  For rides with a splash, Water Country USA is a few miles up the road. Shoppers will enjoy the Prime Outlets, and outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate Williamsburg's many cycling and jogging paths.  Check out the seasonal farmer's markets in Merchants Square and New Town to sample locally grown produce.

These are just a few ways to enjoy Williamsburg!  If the big city is beckoning, Washington, D.C. is just 2.5 hours away, and Richmond is less than an hour to the west.  The Amtrak train station is located a few blocks off-campus, and the Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport is a 20-minute drive south.
