The most important thing to do before deciding what college to go to, is to do as many college visits as possible!!! Think about what you want in a college, size, location (city, small town....), majority of gender ethnicity, religion, and financial costs. These are some examples of what to think of before you make your decision on a college or list of colleges. After you have picked your select few, take the time to make a visit, so you can actually visualize what it could be like. It is also a good idea to try to sit in a few classes or to spend the night at a college, so you can experience more than what a campus tour guide can tell you. Once you find the "right " college for you, one of the first departments to talk to would be the financial aid department. Usually if you really want to attend their school, they should do everything possible to get you there and help you financially along the way. Okay, so now your in college, what can you do to make the most of it? Number one, Don't be shy!! Do your best to be social.
My school is best known for developing strong, independent, opinionated women. Most of all they are best known for their education. They also have a great networking system, which helps for graduates to achieve the jobs or internships they truely want.
A person who is very school oriented and focused on achieving great things in life. Someone Who likes a small community that is respectful of our opinions. Someone who likes one on one contact with their teachers and other students, which provides learning based on group discussions, not just teachers lecturing. There is a lot of hands on learning and trips out in to the "real" world of their professional field.

Don't choose a college based solely on academic programs, though these are very important--choose a school that will force you to consider things that you may have never considered, a school that forces you to think outside the box. The college years are the time most people begin to examine their worldview, so attend as many special events your school offers, and you will be better prepared to enter the world of conflicting ideas and opinions with an open mind.
I only considered one other school, and that was a conservative Christian school. What's unique about MBC compared with the other is that students here are much more open-minded and willing to accept belief systems that are not their own.
Best known...for being an academically rigorous school.

Look at all of your options. But in the end, let your child attend the college he or she want's to the most. I believe that if a student has a strong desite to attend a college, they will suceed.
I think that the academics are of qood quality, and I know that the majority of the teachers are knowledgeable and really care. The work load is hard, and the students truly learn a lot. Mary Baldwin is in a small rural town, and because of that I don't think it gets enough credit. The ratings aren't as high as the should be for the quality of education students recieve.

I would advise students to actually imagine themselves attending the school, and visiting the college. Some schools offer prospecitves to stay overnight to see what student life is like, or to sit in on classes that you might be interested in, or taking a tour of the college. Many people are steered away from a women's college, but it's better than what people say. I strongly advise parents to encourage students to go to a smaller college/university. With a smaller college/university, you have a chance to meet professors and actually have a first and last name, where as other schools you are a social security number, or student ID number for the first 3 years of your undergraduate studies. Also, look to see ways your student can get involved on campus, is it competitive to get involved, or is it available? are questions you should ask an admissions councler when calling schools. Lastly, I would also encourage your student to obtain course catalogs from each school, so they know what school offers the type of classes they would like to take.
The worst thing about Mary Baldwin College, would be the walk to class, everything is up hill or down hill.
Mary Baldiwn College is an academic school built for women to learn and comprehend the information taught at the school; while building bonds with their "sisters" and maintaining friendships that will last for an eternity.

The advice that I would give to any new coming family is find a school that you feel is closest to what kind of environment that you would like. If you like the tiny town with barely anything new to do is for you then try a tiny school, but if you like the city life then look out for more of those. But within your search you also need to pick a couple of the oppsite just so you can try and expand your mind and search. I would also go for what types of activities that you like, although school work is the most important thing to do in college many students wont be consumed into it for their entire four years, so having safe on campus activities to do is a must and a ton of fun. The enviornment and activites are what make or break a college experience, because if you are having fun in an area that you enjoy you will follow in the footsteps of you company, but if you're in an area thats not for you then you'll try and find more things for your taste and not worry about school.
What I was getting into, it is a great school with great people but it is much different then I had expected.
Being an all girl private school, having a great basketball team, its academics, and its theather.
My classmates are extremely diverse.

As a maturing adult or an already mature adult you need to first know your own needs and limitations and have set expectations. From that you must search without relent or lowering your standards to find a college or university that keeps your needs and expectations in mind and high priority. Finding the right college or university is like finding a soulmate, at times we think we want one thing or can settle but in the end, not fully pursuing what we know to be necessary for ourselves will only shortchange one person.
Determined, open-minded, culturally aware and adaptive,accepting.

I would encourage parents/students to look at as many schools as they can. Keep your financial abilities in mind, but do not let that limit the schools you consider. Students should follow their heart and gut feelings about a school because if you're not comforatble there you are going to regret making the decision to go there. Never sacrifice athletic programs for academic programs or vice versa. Visit the school twice, once on a guided tour, and once on your own to get the true feeling of the school.
It's a lot smaller than any other school I looked at. MBC is very class oriented, if your going to go there be ready to study.
Someone who likes a small school environment, small classes, and can ignore drama. If your very focused on your studies and getting the best education you can MBC is for you.
A lot of my classes had less than 10 people in them, so my classmates felt like family of sorts.

An American Council on Education survey reported that 92% of college graduates thought their education was worth it, and 78% would go back to the same institution if they could do it all over again. This means that whatever college one chooses, one is more than likely to overall be satisfied with their degree. Of course, there are some decisions of balancing that students/parents have to make: smaller classes and interested professors that know all of their students vs. a more diverse faculty with more classes to offer, the campus never stops partying vs this campus is dead on the weekends, etc., but I cannot say which is the best for everyone. What's important is what the student does when one arrives. 1. Attend your classes. It's the best pressure to do one's work. If one's social life is preventing one from attending classes, one might not be ready for this level of work quite yet. There is plenty of time to have fun and do work. 2. Get involved. One will only have so much work. Being helps one stay out of stupid dramas. Study. Stay focused. Have fun. The future will be great.
Despite excluding half the population from our student pool, this school is extremely diverse. As a female college, we have a large or at least louder population of lgbtq students. Additionally, some of our college's most popular clubs are ethnic based. Moreover, we have the VWIL's and the PEG's. Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership is a ROTC program. PEG (Program for the Exceptionally Gifted) is a program for girls to skip all or parts of high school, so we also have a bunch of 14-year-old geniuses running around.

It seems to be well known for being well known. Everytime I mention to an adult that I'm attending MBC they tend to say "Oh yes, I've heard of them. Good school." without actually knowing anything about it.
Make sure you thourghly investigate the school first. Visit the campus and find out if you can sit in on some of the classes to help you get a sense of class-size and how the proffessors operate. Once you're there, join clubs. Just one or two at first, so that you aren't overwhelmed once you start having a lot of schoolwork. This, and attending school functions such as sports games and dances, is a good way to make friends and integrate yourself into campus life. While you may feel homesick at first, it is best not to go home too often during the first semester as this can only make it worse. College can be a wonderful time to grow. Try new things - join clubs you might not have participated in back in high school. Try to have fun. Getting all your classwork done is important, but make sure you balance it out with social events. This will help to make college a more enjoyable and memorable experience. It's a good time to make friendships you will maintain into adulthood.
Administration can be inflexable when helping students with a problem they're having with a system, be it housing or food. The president wastes money painting the outsides of buildings and recarpeting her house while the roof on the art building colapses and there are huge holes in the walls in the science building.

Finding the right college is never easy. It will never be and easy process either. The only advice I can give anybody is to follow your gut instinct. If you fall in love with a college and or university just go for it. Another thing for the parents is to always trust your child no matter how much you dont agree with them. They will be the ones that have to live and study there so dont try to talk them out of it. One big thing about college is getting envolved. Try an join all the things that you've always wanted to try because this is your last chance. Just dont overload yourself because you want to leave some time for yourself.
To attend this school you must want to learn and make life long friends. This school has a lot of opportunities for people that want to succeed in life. Also, it has many activites on campus that will keep you ocuppied.
The type of person that shouldn't attend this school are those only interested in parties. If your from a big city and aren't acustom to the small town life you really wouldn't want to attend this school.
