What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Stick with your instincts. If you feel like one school just isn't right, don't commit to four years there. Also, make sure that they offer a wide range of majors that interest you instead of just one. That way, if you want to change directions you can do so without changing schools.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school offers very little engagin options for entertainment that don't involve parties and drinking. Most events, when offered, were of little interest to the students.

What's unique about your campus?

A strong sense of community, even among individuals of different social groups.

Very friendly, very giving.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do you like large crouds and partying, or do you like small crounds and intimate conversations. That makes the biggest difference in choosing your school. I started out at a school with 40,000 undergrad, and quickly realized I needed a place where my teachers were reachable, and actively involved in my learning.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You have to find a place that makes you feel comfortable. For me it was a small school and being in an old town. Dont go where your high school friends go. College is for making new friends and going new places.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You must talk to students on campus. Not the tour group leaders, human resources, etc. Do not beleive them Especially at Mary Wash. You must look and eat on campus off tour days, you need to talk to students in your department, etc.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The administration was terrible. They were concerned with money, developments, size and business, not education.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmastes are dilligent workers who are looking for a solid job in the world; they are also happy, outgoing, laid back, and enjoy having a good time with friends.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Mary Washington is known for its outstanding Historic Preservation department as well as a sound Business department. It is also known for the beauty of its campus, filled with trees, flowers, and open grassy areas. The Jeffersonian architecture is also a picturesque sister-school to the University of Virginia.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Follow your passion. To lead an ultimately happy life, you must put yourself into the field of study which you love. When searching for universities and colleges, be sure to eliminate those which don't include an undergrad major in your area of interest. While taking in information from all the different schools to which you wish to apply, stay organized. Parents can be a great asset in this, helping prospective students with filing and recyling all those brochures you receive in the mail! Once you have selected the schools that interest you, it is of utmost importance to conduct a campus visit. This is often the make-or-break point in deciding which college to attend. If you don't feel at home on the campus, then you will not be happy spending four years of your life on it. Once at your school, a new world will be opened up to you in the form of parties and other such temptations. While having fun with friends is a great way to let off steam, don't forget the ultimate purpose of attending a school of higher learning: to learn the tools you will need to follow your passion.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

UMW is best known for being a smallish, high-quality liberal arts undergraduate school.

What's unique about your campus?

UMW is small enough and caring enough that you don't get lost in the shuffle. Classes really are small, and you are in constant contact with professors, so you really learn. Socially you don't get lost in frats and crazy drinking, you meet real people and hang out with them.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

[I just like filling out surveys, I don't wish to apply for the scholarship]

Alexandra
What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The food because it could be better. There could be more variety and healthier choices.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Apply to many colleges so your options are open. Visit each college and do the research behind the differernt programs and as to what makes each college unique. Know what you are looking for in a college. Become involved in your campus community by participating in community service and extracurriculers. Make responsbile decisions in how you spend your time. Balance your time well between academics, community involvement, and free time. Have a positive attitute.
