    UMW is one of Virginia's cheaper colleges, but you get a lot out of your money. Tuition is usually under 8,000 dollars per semester, living on campus, and about half that for living off campus.

    Since I'm a commuter student, tuition is a lot cheaper. I find my commuter meal plan definitely worth my money! I feel like I'm being challenged as a student and my money isn't being wasted. I'm exciting about the new Convergence Center and other new features on campus.

    I come from out of state and this school is only a thousand or two more than my local state schools. They offer some pretty good financial aid as far as that goes. I do wish they would offer a Spanish major though, but as a small school, they don't have all the majors a big school can offer.

    I think for as low as the price is (compared to others), the professors are absolutely amazing and you will get a good education. At the end of the day, that's the most important thing.

    I'll say education wise UMW is definitely worth the money but as far as social life or having a real university experience yeah not so much.
