Most Helpful Review for University of Mary Washington

Students at the University of Mary Washington definitely learn a lot. There are about 4,000 students total in the entire school, so over 900 students in each graduating class. It is so beneficial going to a school that is smaller because classes are smaller, making it more comfortable to participate in class and ask questions. Professors also know who you are: you are not seen as just a number to them. Because classes are so small, they get to know their students: the different personalities, strengths, and weaknesses of their students, making it easier for professors to know how to...

    UMW is a great place to get established and earn your degree, whether you're a traditional or non-traditional student. It's a small campus environment, yet big opportunities, especially in the Fredericksburg area. The staff is friendly and the professors really care about your well being, going above and beyond to make sure you receive the help you need no matter the situation you're in.

    Small school atmosphere with teachers that truly care. There are plenty of clubs and sports to get involved in. The financial aid is pretty great too!

    The professors that I had at UMW were outstanding. The campus is beautiful, Fredericksburg is an amazing town, and the other students at UMW are wonderful people.

    Mary Washington is very into academic excellence you have to maintain atleast a 2.0 or you wont be able to receive financial aid which sucks but you can appeal the process. There are alot activities for students through the campus.

    The University of Mary Washington is a fantastic school for those interested in challenging academics and personalized instruction. The professors are not interested in letting you simply slide through the semester but rather they push hard to know each student and to challenge each student to their very best potential. The largest class I have had at UMW contained 30 students and the professor knew everybody's name the first week. UMW also has a beautiful campus and great food.

    Not very helpful when it comes to your academic standing and applying for financial assistance. You are not given too much assistance in continuing your education if you aren't doing very well.

    UMW is not a huge college so if you are looking for tons of people, I don't suggest this college (however, our school is mostly female, so there are lots of single ladies). UMW is the type of college that everyone gets to know one another because we have a smaller community and the staff/professors really try to get to know their students. Our campus is one of the main things that drew me to the college, it truly makes me feel at home.
