Mary Baldwin College offers student many opportunities in their education. The faculty and staff are committed to not only making you a better student but helping you to grow as an individual person. The atmosphere here is that of acceptance and confidence.
Hannah from Big Sandy, TN
I love this college more then I thought I would! It's an all-woman's college, meaning a lot of sisterhood bonds. It is most definitely NOT one of those party colleges, but you can still find yourself distracted when you go to the historical downtown they have here in Staunton.
