Why did you choose to attend William & Mary?

My parents got engaged at the Williamsburg Inn on a visit to see my great aunt and uncle who retired in Williamsburg. Therefore, Colonial Williamsburg was a popular April vacation destination for my family. There was something for everyone—golf for my dad, history for my mom, and Busch Gardens for myself and my siblings. When I was touring colleges, William & Mary stood out as having a strong business school uniquely positioned within a renowned liberal arts education. Additionally, I believe William & Mary’s size is a sort of Goldilocks situation. It's not too big, it's not too small, it’s just right. It came as an added bonus that I have a family connection to Williamsburg, especially since I’m 600 miles from home. Last year, I was even able to attend my great aunt’s 100th birthday party!
