Mary Baldwin University Reviews
By now I have been at Mary Baldwin for three years. I personally think it is a wonderful school, and just like every school, it has its downsides. The Residential College for Women is amazing and very women empowering! The schools Liberal Arts programs are amazing, and I particularly love their education program. The small class size makes it perfect for students to be able to interact with the teachers within the classroom and gain help when needed. Overall, I have had a wonderful experience at Mary Baldwin and would defiantly recommend the school to others.
I JUST RECENTLY FINISHED MY FIRST YEAR AT MBU. ALTHOUGH I DON'T LIVE ON CAMPUS, I FOUND IT REALLY EASY TO CONNECT TO THE CAMPUS LIFE AND THE ACTIVITIES AROUND ME. I FELT REALLY COMFORTABLE IN ALL MY CLASSES AND I FORMED GREAT RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY ADVISORS AND PROFESSORS. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE THREE YEARS AHEAD OF ME AND EVERYTHING THEY'LL HOLD!
Mary Baldwin was originally an all female institution, which was the main reason I applied. Though there is a lack of communication between the heads of the university and students, it is still a beautiful campus. The campus is beautiful, downtown is phenomenal, and it is an overall great place to study. There is even our own personal Holiday called Apple Day, it is a blast. There's a carnival, food, and games. The small campus makes getting to know your professors even easier.
