    When I say it is a small school and a small campus, I mean it. A lot of the time, you've got to make your own fun around here. There is a party scene over at JMU that a lot of girls enjoy for the first few months here before that runs dry. I personally don't mind us being in such a small town. While some weekends can get boring, you're living down the hall from all your best friends, it isn't that hard to have fun. The school tries its best to entertain us with movie nights at the downtown theaters, or campus-wide events; you get what you put into it. You can have fun here if you try just a little

    The school has a few organizations that have events every now and then. The Baldwin Program Board has the best ones. They have an event every third Thursday that utilizes both movie theaters and plays their own selection which you can see for free with either free popcorn or drink. In the beginning of the year there are a lot more events, but as winter and spring come around it's more sparse. Finally, downtown has a few shopping options (like thrift stores and vintage stores) and some nice restaurants (some give discounts).

    You can always go downtown. However, there is not much to do there either. You can watch a movie at the theatres. If you want to party, then a car would be required to drive down to JMU. If you want fast food, all of that would be in driving distance. Bottom line is... there is nothing to do for fun. On campus activities can most likely compensate for that.

    Watch movies, hang out with your newly made friends, go downtown where they have great shops & restaurants- but only after all your work is done!!

    Bowling is near by. Ice-skating in Charlottesville is nearby. There are 5 historic districts in the Staunton community which make for very lovely walks with friends.

    MBC is located in Staunton, VA. Staunton is a very small town but it is one of the cutest towns in America. In fact, it was named #10 in best small town in America by the Smithsonian Magazine. It is in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, which offers great outdoor activities. The little cafes are always a treat and MBC offers free movie tickets every 1st thursday of the month. If that's not good enough, James Madison University, Washington and Lee, and University of Virginia are each 20 minutes away....and they always have social gatherings.

    I would say that if you have a car on campus, you could go home for the weekends, or go to JMU, Bridgewater, or UVA for parties. Mary Baldwin Students get in for free at the Bridgewater events.
