W&M is famous for its firsts: the first U.S. institution with a Royal Charter, the first Greek-letter society (Phi Beta Kappa, founded in 1776), the first student honor code, the first college to become a university and the first law school in America.
William & Mary’s traditional rival in football is the University of Richmond. William & Mary and Richmond have met 120 times since 1898, making the rivalry (sometimes referred to as “the South’s oldest rivalry”) the fourth most-played in Division I college football.
William & Mary is one of only eight U.S. universities designated a “Public Ivy.” A public ivy is a state-assisted institution that offers a superior education at a cost far below that of Ivy League schools. The Wren Building is the oldest college building still standing in the U.S., and classes are still taught there.
