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...

    the university of mary washington was my #1 college when i was in high school because i remembered how beautiful and welcoming the campus felt when i went on a student lead tour years before. i am starting my sophomore year in the fall and could not be any happier about my decision of umw. the students and faculty are always so warm and welcoming here and the "homey" feeling you will get while walking down college walk is unbeatable.

    Mary Washington is a small school with a beautiful campus, in a historic town. Professors are fantastic and class sizes are generally small, giving it a more individualized feel. You really get to know your professors and fellow students here, and on such a small campus everyone starts to feel like family.

    A terrific school that I got into with a beautiful picturesque camous. However, I do not attend, my sister did and I love coming to visit this close-knit heartwarming campus. The cultural diversity fair is worth looking towards for.

    There's a social niche for everyone who is willing to look for it. The school is growing and expanding with three new buildings. A small student body gives us smaller, more individualized classes.

    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.

    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.
