University of Mary Washington Top Questions

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Michael

No. Although UMW is above average academically there are plenty of social opportunities. There are plenty of people at UMW who party pretty hard you just have to find the right groups.

Quinn

This school is not diverse but there is always something to do.

Micah

Most of the students are white and have money, but the University is really trying to recruit more men and minorities.

Sarah

These stereotypes are somewhat accurate. There really isn't much diversity on campus - it's mostly middle class white kids. And the few black or international students that we DO have, all group together. So there's nt much mixing, but people are nice enough, I guess. Rumours spread fast on such a small campus, so beware.

Danny

For the most part (about 85%), yes.

Nate

It is majority white and majority female, but these are not entirely the truth. There's a social scene out there if you find it. Get involved with a group, club or team. there's something out there for you. People do tend to leave on weekends, but its certainly not a majority.

Nicole

not in my opinion. i only live an hour away and i hardly ever went home on the weekends. if you want to have fun on the weekends you can find friends and you can find something to do. i think that we only have this reputation because we don't have frats.

Greg

Not at all

Bettsie

Most of the campus is white, it isn't very diverse

Erin

Yes

Sarah

YESSS!!! Race more so than gender.

Ashley

Absolutely, there are not that many smart guys at UMW

Blake

Sort of, a lot of students are from the Northern VA area and tend to be a bit preppie.

Stephan

These stereotypes may be somewhat accurate at times but the people at UMW are mainly extremely welcoming. I think it is more of an institutional problem that keeps the student body from being more diverse.

Jim

Pretty much

Rory

Chelsea
