Overall Rating

This is a really nice college and you can see why Jon Stewart (host of The Daily Show) has fond memories of attending it. The campus is nestled in the heart of Williamsburg and while it's not the most exciting town, any history buff will absolutely love the place. I transferred here from a city university and liked it much more.
