What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Baldwin University is great overall. It gives you a chance to develop who you are through an excellent community. As for me, I have been able to excel on an academic standpoint and that has really motivated me. They also are very easy going and easy to work with which helps make it a great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that the University is beautiful, the scenery is gorgeous and the people are so kind all around. I think that the dorms are a bit old and have older furniture, there are not any sororities but the government committee is very involved and is willing to help to include more activities and such on campus. The academic classes are simple and although there a lot, they're not very challenging.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I went to Mary Baldwin College from Fall of 1983 until I graduated in May 1987, I would give the teaching a 4 out of a 5. There was always something to do back when I attended. The only negative I can attest to was the traumatic hazing experiences I suffered from my roommate and her clique my freshman year, one professor I had who tried to bed me (which he failed), a sexual predator peeking in my dorm window because the school refused to replace the broken blind, and the occasional girl who would intentionally undermine another student or professor if they didn't like them. It is now 2017, and Mary Baldwin I am sorry to say has become such a hostile backstabbing institution of higher learning that even though they offer more scholarships now and claim inclusiveness, your child is stepping into a volatile environment where if they disagree with or question any of the University' policies or practices, the school will publically denigrate them in the newspapers, on TV news, radio news, editorials, social media, and wherever else they can destroy your child' reputation. Mary Baldwin use to have a very supportive alumni base, but the schools Administration, Alumni Board, and Trustees excommunicated thousands of their female alumni when the alumni refused to support catastrophic changes and had questions concerning the schools finances. Your daughters are precious treasure and should never be treated as "Trifle". For those of you who have sons, let this tragedy be a wake up warning that if Mary Baldwin University treated thousands upon thousands of the female alumni so wantonly, at some point in the future, your son will end up as trifle also. Whether you have daughters or sons, if you love them, you will not send them to Mary Baldwin University. Instead you will send them to a different school that has honor and integrity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Baldwin University is a pleasant higher educational facility in terms of professors, class sizes, and student culture. The professors are very involved with promoting student success and have a passion for the subjects they teach, this gives students a greater enthusiasm to learn. Class sizes are between fifteen and thirty students. This relatively small class size allows for comfortable student discussions during class. Student culture at Mary Baldwin is very diverse; there are students from all across the United States and also international students. This diversity allows for varying points of view to be expressed during classes and this strengthens the learning experience at this university. However, there are a few aspects of student life that should be improved. Resident dorms are in need of preventative maintenance and renovations. The Freshman dorms do not have air conditioning; this causes problems during the beginning and the end of the school year because temperatures reach the high nineties. In the past year, two residence halls have had pipes burst; this left many students without water for laundry or showers for a few days. Overall, Mary Baldwin Univesity has dorms that are in need of remodeling and more preventative maintenance in order to improve residence life; however, student life in regards to academics is unique because of diverse students and faculty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my college. It's small and has a beautiful view from all sides of the campus. I love the recent change to have the other eating facility open until 10 p.m. and I love that the library is open until midnight. The historic downtown is very cute and goes along with the history of the campus. I both love and hate that the campus is open because of potential danger. Although there are some things I may disagree with, I wouldn't want to enroll anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Baldwin University as a whole is a stable and safe environment to learn and grow within. It is an extremely inclusive space and people often are found involved in various activities. There are parts in which the University can improve but so far it does an excellent job in making freshman feel at home and allowing the upperclassman to further grow.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As much as I love MBU, I can honestly say that the housing and food sucks. There's a disconnect from what admissions says to what the campus is actually like. I do love the school though. They deleted my major before I came in (and didn't tell me), so I had to propose an independent major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hate it, the students can be rude, there is nothing in the area and no good research opportunities. some professors can also be rude and everything downtown is overpriced especially as a college student on a budget. There is nothing to do on or off campus because you're literally on a mountain top.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Baldwin University is good. It's much better than people give it credit for. The campus tries very hard to be involved in every aspect of everything, which can get a bit overwhelming, but is better than the apathetic alternative. The food is good.
