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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Washington is a poorly-ran school. Everybody at the top is not in it for the growth and the students, they are in it for the money and power with a "behind-the-scenes" take at leadership. I would start with the top and make sure he students investing the money and time into the University are receiving what they bought in to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Really enjoy this school! One of the best decisions I have made. The class sizes are small, it really allows the teachers to get to know you and spend time on the material that is being covered. Everyone is really friendly and it feels like a home away from home. You can’t go down campus without seeing at least one person you know!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mary Washington is an exceptional institution that values community and academics. The campus is always a safe place and people are friendly and willing to talk and give directions when needed. There is a big sense of community on campus and downtown, which really helps students and people visiting feel comfortable and more at home. I personally love this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved this school as soon as I walked to the bell tower. There is a feeling of acceptance and community that attracted me to the school along with the great location for my desired major. It is just far enough away from the craziness of DC but close enough for it to help with my classes. The faculty is available and helpful. The academic advisors are sometimes more confident of our potential than we are and they push us to do "more than the normal 12 credits" in a semester. We don't have a football team but soccer, basketball, and softball are big NCAA sports available and club level sports in everything imaginable (even Quidditch) are offered. It is a small campus comparatively but it is my second home.
