College of William and Mary
Before Mr. Jefferson could found a college, he had to attend one: William & Mary. Located in the living museum of Williamsburg, with its recreation of colonial life featuring actors in period costume and speech, William & Mary puts less emphasis on athletics and the professions than UVA and perhaps more on areas of study such as the humanities. Campus buildings have an architectural uniformity of red brick and buff trim, with forest green providing the accent. Add gold to the green, and you have the Tribe's uniform colors—the nickname a tribute to a part of the original mission: educating Native Americans.
