What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think University of Mary Washington is such a wonderfill college. With its beautiful scenery and amazing landscape theres just something about it that makes someone feel right at home. I love all the teachers mainly because the small class sizes allow for more teacher student communication. Facility way go out of their way to help students. Another great thing is that the students who attend University of Mary Washington are so friendly and supportive.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UMW is a pretty great school! The campus is beautiful at any time of year, the professors are top-notch, the location is not too far away from home for me but it's far enough that I'm not going home every weekend, and the academic programs are well respected. My first year at UMW was a great one and I cannot wait to see what the next few years bring me!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Wash came to me as a buried gem. I applied to the school the day I found out about it, which was only a couple of days before the deadline! After applying and doing proper research, I found it to be the PERFECT fit for me! It is a pretty quiet school, but that is how I like it. Parties are there if you look for them, but there is absolutely no pressure to join in. The professors, staff, and other students are all insanely nice (sometimes I like to tell my roommate "suspiciously nice") and the campus itself is BEAUTIFUL! One downside is that the food can get a little mundane after a while, but I have found this to make me a little more creative in my meal selections. There are a plethora of amenities (such as the free mental health facility and innumerable academic services) offered for the students, as long as one is willing to seek them out. We do have strange little quirks, like our weird one-way rivalry with CNU, biweekly (relatively new!) $1 movies with raffle prizes, and Friday night "Nug-Night" in the dining hall, but these make UMW so much more wonderful to me. P.S. There are over 120 clubs you can join, you might even have a hard time limiting yourself, especially since you can create your own club if you desire. That said, join the Quidditch team! Tell them Katie sent you :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This small close-knit college in a small close-knit town is a comforting campus that allows students to live in an historic area and still receive the best education. The campus is regularly cleaned, buildings have ample amount of sitting areas, an there are wide open outside areas to use on a sunny day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very beautiful campus and academics are great. The party scene is there if you know where to look but it's a bit difficult to find sometimes. As a music and theatre double major I would suggest looking otherwise. Music is pretty run down, doesn't have a wide variety of majors within the field but the education quality is still there. Theatre is also very good but small and close knit - very much a clique. There is opportunity to grow and advance within the department unlike at larger schools. My only fear is less opportunities because of the size of the school. Although the department chair is approachable and knows some big names in the theatre world personally (NEA Four members, namely Holly Hughes).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very pleased to be attending the University of Mary Washington. The smaller class sizes allow for individual attention from the professors. The campus has a very friendly environment and the atmosphere of the classrooms makes learning enjoyable. My favorite part, however, has to be the food. Mary Washington offers a variety of food options so there is something for everyone and the food is made fresh right in front of you.
