The University of Mary Washington is a 4-year liberal arts college in northern Virginia. UMW is home to colleges of Arts & Sciences, Education, and Business conferring undergraduate degrees in over 60 fields of study. To provide a transition to college academics, UMW offers a number of First Year Seminars which feature small class sizes and personal interaction with the college faculty. Throughout each week of the school year, UMW schedules a number of on-campus events and performances at a space called The Underground, including small concerts, trivia nights, and open mic nights.
Mary Washington is a wonderful school that really gives you so many wonderful opportunities. We have professors here who have won awards, and if you are in the Creative Writing department we have Claudia Emerson as a Professor here. Not only do we have great academics, we have lots of fun here.
