It was the first time I'd joined the Road Scholar and I was very impressed. The program was very well organized. Eileen, our coordinator did a superb, superb job! The lecturers were very knowledgeable, and Ward, the bus driver was more than a bus driver - he was an excellent tour guide himself! Michie Tavern lunch buffet was a great treat! I enjoyed the performance to make us laugh "A visit with Col. Monnroe" - not only was he an excellent actor, but also a historian himself! I really enjoyed the trip, came home with more knowledge of the American history than I've ever learned! These Presidents are amazing ... Thank you!

What a great week to be in Charlottesville and be able to visit the homes of all these outstanding leaders of our country. William and Mary College run a super program! The course content was excellent, the speakers knowledgleable and the accommodations lovely. It was a treat to enjoy a meal at Michie Tavern. Ward, our bus driver was very helpful about using public transportation on our free time. Eileen, our coordinator was on top of every situation. Make plans to attend this wonderful program.
