Hey there! I recall going through the same process with my child not too long ago. If you're looking for schools similar to William and Mary, consider checking out Wake Forest University in North Carolina. It's known for its engaged student body and strong academics, fitting that niche of being rigorous without being overwhelmingly large. Another great option might be Davidson College, also in North Carolina. It has a tight-knit community and is recognized for its commitment to a liberal arts education with high academic standards. Don't forget about Middlebury College in Vermont, which boasts a strong sense of community and similar academic rigor, especially for students interested in international studies and languages. They all offer that balance of being challenging without the anonymity of a larger school. Best of luck in finding the perfect fit!
