I love mary wash. Its my home and I'd never go anywhere else, but i feel i should provide the negatives first. The on campus food is quite subpar, they have a decent number of shit professors(just talk to peers to avoid that) and some of their budgeting makes NO sense. Like building the UC, a building that is 4 floors, designed FOR students, and the only thing students use it for is to eat. The cafeteria is at the TOP of said building and the food is lile i said, subpar. Why i love the school, however- most of the staff is SO great, I've had a great time here. party scene is..decent. Beautiful town, lots to do, and great people. Very accepting and caring community. Our honor code is so strong-I've lost many things on this campus including a wallet with $100+ in cash in it, which was promptly returned to me. i have never felt unsafe since i got here. Glad i chose this school. Its a great day to be an eagle!
Review University of Mary Washington
I am a freshman at the University of Mary Washington and my experience at the university has been excellent so far. I chose Mary Washington because of its friendly atmosphere paired with good academics. There are many opportunities for students to get involved at UMW. The professors are qualified and available for their students. For a small University in Virginia, the school is pretty diverse and makes diversity an important aspect of campus life. Overall a great school. Can't wait to come back next year!
I love this school! The small size is one of the biggest reasons that I chose to come here. The class sizes are small, so it is easy to form relationships with professors and to go to them for help outside of the classroom. The campus is beautiful, the facilities are excellent, and there are tons of resources to take advantages of. The only downside is that, if you are looking to join clubs, many of the clubs are not very active. I would not want to attend any other university.
