Her Own Words
"One of my favorite things about William & Mary is the close-knit community. After attending a large undergraduate institution, I knew that I wanted more interaction with professors and administrators as a graduate student. I am pleased to find that William & Mary faculty are always willing to answer my questions and really care about the learning environment. Even though we have some 'superstar' faculty members, I feel completely comfortable asking for one-on-one appointments, going to office hours, as well as getting help from our teaching assistants."
