  • The only downside is that half of our dorms still don't have AC, but otherwise I think they're pretty good compared to most colleges. The buildings are never over five…

    The food at Mary Washington is pretty good. Seacobeck hall offers tons of options from an Italian room to a Grill, however, the hours of operation are pretty small. The Eagle's nest has a great sandwich place comparable to subway, as well as The Wingery where you can get chicken and fries and burgers, as well as Vocelli's Pizza which has GREAT pizza. The last option for dining on campus is The Underground which has healthy options including vegan and vegetarian options. The Underground has sandwiches, soup, smoothies, and salads.

    As of right now there are three dining areas: Seacobeck, The Underground, and The Nest. Okay, first up is Seaco which is the basic buffet style dining hall that has three different rooms that vary in the times and the type of food they serve. Seaco offers a pretty good deal because you can get as much food as you want for only a meal swipe and the food is not too bad. The Underground is more of the natural foods type of place and serves lots of foods that have more healthy choices. I tend to eat at the Underground quite a bit for lunch even though you mostly have to use Flex to get any food there (I recommend the turkey club with chipotle sauce). The Nest has pizza, wings and sandwiches, there are three separate places for each type of food. The food isn't bad or anything, but for me it does get a tad boring and making dinner or lunch for yourself can spice it up from time to time (aka making microwave mac-n-cheese).

    Campus dining options are very good actually. The main dining hall is not the best but is much better than anyone expects when they first arrive. Campus has several other on site options that are also very good but Fredericksburg has a wealth of incredible dining options that usually have student specials or even accept the college's pay card.

    There are three main dining locations in campus. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, there are certain locations that cater to those needs. If you are a meat and potatoes type of person than this is a great place to eat. Come visit and try to eat at one of the dining locations to get a better feel of the school and its food.

    There are some Fraternities that are not sponsored by the school on campus. The Fraternities are service oriented and they are a big part of school spirit.

    There are a few clubs for greek life, but it's not really a huge thing at UMW. However, there are so many other clubs and organizations that you won't really miss it.

    The University doesn't officially recognize Greek Life but there is a sorority and fraternity that recruits students.
