The University of Mary Washington is a warm and welcoming school where everyone fits in! Professors are always interested in helping students succeed and maintaining a good quality of life. There are several opportunities to get involved - from academic clubs, service clubs, and social clubs.

I love Mary Washington! So far, all of my professors have been easy to work with and they genuinely want you to succeed. There are a lot of on-campus resources to help you succeed as well such as the writing center or speaking center. Overall, my only complaints about UMW have only been the UC's hours and sometimes the quality of food. My only 'bad' experience here has really been some of my roommate's friends who I politically disagree with but you can avoid that by hanging out with people who share common values/ideologies with.
Mary Wash is set in the beautiful city of Fredricksburg. The school has an awesome dining hall at the student union and the dorms are pretty sweet too! I recommend the apartment style dorms across the from the gym by giant if you are a student athlete. Also, athletes are highly supported at this school which is awesome being that it is D3. Besides the sports program, I think the school is pretty artsy if I were to classify the students.
