Additionally, Williamsburg is nationally ranked as a top small town for livability.

"People aren't coming here just for the history or theme parks anymore. They're coming to enjoy the town."

On top of all this, William & Mary has been recognized by Forbes as one of America's Best-in-State Employers for 2022. W&M is indeed a wonderful place to work, and Williamsburg is a wonderful place to live!
