What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Mary Washington is a great place to learn and grow in character. The campus is gorgeous, the professors are usually nice and helpful, there's a good selection of classes, and a great selection of clubs and activities. UMW may not have a football team or a party scene, but it has what matters in the long run: a good education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Washington is a campus that truly provides you with a sense of beloning. Due to the small class size you are able to connect with your porfessors on a personal level. They constantly ensure you are doing everything you can to secure the best future possible. Your peers are kind and encouraging and make you feel as if you belong. College should be a place you feel safe and secure at. I have found that at the University of Mary Washignton. I thank the staff for ensuring these are four fabulous years of my life. They have helped shape me into the person I need to be in order to meet with success in the real world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While Mary Washington has a beautiful campus, they speak very highly of their academics, lack of greek life, friendliness of students, delicious food, and of classes taught only by professors. I, on the other hand, disagree. The academics here are extremely lacking. People who have never had to write an essay for college classes have been accepted, and even the honors college is quite pitiful. Not only is it difficult to find an honors class to count towards your credits, the only benefit is getting to register for classes first. Even with "guaranteed" registration, I was not able to be placed into honors classes because they were all filled. That is how few classes are offered. Next, they push their school for having a lack of greek life on campus, but at least half of the "clubs" are unrecognized. If you are not on a sports team, you join a sorority or fraternity. If you happen to not belong to either one of those categories, then you are immediately classified apart from the "cool crowd". At first, I believed that maybe all colleges were the same as Mary Washington, seemingly stuck in the high school way of life. But they aren't. I feel as though I have left one clique infested school and entered into another. Another driving factor in my decision to come to UMW was the quality of the food. I quickly discovered that it is all an act for when the student days are on campus. We, as students, are able to see when parents and possibly new students will be exploring campus dining because it actually has more to offer than a protein and rice for once! Lastly, this school speaks highly of their classes being taught solely by professors, which is untrue. They just do a good job of hiding it. Unknown to me, they signed me up for a class taught by an assistant professor. Who I had to look up in the directory in order to even find out that he was who he was. So if you feel like you peaked in high school either socially, academically, or athletically - the University of Mary Washington is the place for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have had a great time here. Some days I stress about my future and even if I will graduate on time because there are so many classes I want to explore. The people here are great, you can find a home in any group, whether it be with the tennis team or the Theater department.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Mary Washington is a great place to be academically and socially. They present to you the best staff and professors around. Most of our staff and professors here either went to college here or graduate school. We have an Honor Code set in stone at the school to alleviate any cheating, lying, or stealing. All of our values are strictly enforced upon the campus community. Class sizes are phenomenal for the subjects. University of Mary Washington is where "great minds get to work."

The University of Mary Washington is a very accepting community that is not afraid to give assistance at any time. They have counseling that is available for free to all full-time student and they have an office of disabilities that are willing to help students with professors and courses that may cause conflict due to mental or physical circumstance.

The Mary Washington campus is small, but very beautiful. Everyone here is very nice and helpful. The professors' doors are always open if any help is needed, and there are plenty of other resources on campus for student to seek academic help from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Washington is a place where Academics are a huge priority and at the end of the day, it will take precedence over parties or sports. Many students here are very intellectually engaged and interested in what they study, thanks in part to the many fabulous and caring professors who know their fields well, and go above and beyond the call of duty in helping you gain a better understanding of their field. They are extremely accessible, and engaged in the community; often they can be seen at events and just walking around campus for a stroll. The dorms are not as nice as some other colleges, but the communities within them are priceless. The food is pretty varied and we have several choices on campus, and endless off campus. The people are really what makes Mary Washington special. They truly care about one another. It really can't be put into words, but I know that Mary Washington is made up of family, both students now and alumni. I always know that I can count on a fellow Eagle if I need anything. Once while sitting outside my building alone at night, I had 5 people within 15 minutes ask if I was doing okay. Students, faculty, and staff really do care here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Mary Washington! The class sizes are small and the professors really care about you and how you are doing in the class. The president of the university often jogs around campus and will talk to the students! The school is small enough that we are able to have many events for the students for free which builds a tight-knit community on campus. Downtown, there are many shops, bars, and restaurants that are always fun to visit. Because of the area, there are often festivals happening downtown as well! There is always something to do. The only complaint is that food closes pretty early, but we hope that changes soon.
