The College of William and Mary (officially The College of William and Mary in Virginia, also known as William & Mary or W&M) is a top tier and highly selective public university located in Williamsburg, Virginia, United States. It is the second-oldest institution of higher education in the United States and is one of the original eight institutions known as Public Ivies. William & Mary was founded in 1693 by a Royal Charter issued by King William III and Queen Mary II, joint sovereigns of England, Scotland, and Ireland. In 1698, the College hosted the seat of government of the Colony of Virginia as a new capitol building was constructed nearby. In modern times, the College's landmark Wren Building stands at the western head of Duke of Gloucester Street opposite the reconstructed Capitol of Colonial Williamsburg. William & Mary educated U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and John Tyler as well as other key figures important to the development of the nation, including U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall, Speaker of the House Henry Clay and 16 signers of the Declaration of Independence. W&M educated future MIT founder William Barton Rogers. U.S. President George Washington received his surveyor's certificate there and noted legal scholar George Wythe was both an early student and, later, the first head of W&M's law school. W&M is notable in higher education for the founding of the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society in 1776. It was the first school of higher education in the United States to install an honor code of conduct for students. Notably, W&M became a university in 1779 (it is among several institutions claiming to be the first university in the United States), although the institution retains the traditional "College" in its name, as was specified in its Royal Charter of 1693.
