"The College of William and Mary is home to many firsts:  first royal charter, first honor code, first Law School, but now it can add another one.

Last year, William & Mary became the first university in the United States to have a detachment of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. The detachment is part of the Coast Guard Auxiliary's Flotilla 67 in Williamsburg. The Auxiliary is the uniformed, volunteer component of the Coast Guard."
