The College of William and Mary, founded in 1693, is a public institution. Since its founding in 1693, it has brought students and faculty together in an intimate setting to study the arts and sciences. The university's low student-faculty ratio and small class size educate exceptional graduates, who have won five Rhodes Scholarships and many other similar awards in the last ten years. On the graduate level, William and Mary offers a wide range of programs in the arts and sciences, law, business, education and marine science. Its 1,200-acre campus, includes a variety of colonial buildings and is located in Williamsburg, 15 miles northwest of Newport News.
