Mary Baldwin University, what could I say in order to give you a picture of campus life. The students body are as diverse, as is the exceptional variety of courses offered. I believe growing up in Staunton I was in awe of the history surrounding the school.. Within the small town of Staunton, you cannot help but be in awe of such a picturesque campus, steeped in a long history of excellence. Now that it is no longer a Girls Only School, my dream has come true!

What I love about Mary Baldwin, are the small academic classes. The professors get to know you, and they are able to work better with each student due to the relatively small classroom size. The campus itself is stunning!
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.
