My current experience so far has been very enjoyable. Mary Baldwin College is now Mary Baldwin University so there has been a small name change o reflect the growth of the school. The thing that I like most about Mary Baldwin is that the school is very diverse and enjoys being that way. There is a mixture of people, sexuality, religion, and so much more that allows students to learn and grow together in ways unimaginable.
All of the professors here are very passionate about what they are teaching, as well as being knowledgeable in their fields of study. Many of the classes are small, so professors are willing to spend time with students to help them understand course materials.
Review Mary Baldwin College
I like the professors at Mary Baldwin and the sisterhood I have created. There are many different clubs and organizations here to choose from and the classes are fairly easy. The traditions within the office of inclusive excellence always keep me busy and are a great experience. I enjoy the scenery and weather in the area, the campus is close to downtown Staunton and it is convenient to walk there. Mary Baldwin is a great school with a diverse campus and I am proud to be a flying squirrel.
Overall, it's a decent school. It does cost a lot of money to go to this school and you don't receive the value of what you're paying for. The school is quiet and hilly. The professors are understanding and very helpful. The food and housing are definately not worth all the money that you pay for it. There are little to no fun social engagements. Nonetheless, the school is alright if you're willing to pay a lot of money to sacrifice a college experience for a chance to be well focused on your education.
