What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Keep in mind that yes, college years are supposed to be some of the greatest years of your life. Its perfectly fine to have fun in college, but don't let anything distract you from the reason why you're truly there, which is to get an education. Take advantage of all the opportunities made available to you by the school.
Breon from Stafford, VA
Although everyone wants to live in Alvey at first, due to its proximity to the gym and the fact that it has air conditioning, I would not recommend it. The rooms are actually very cold, you will wind up wearing sweatshirts in August. The dorm is isolated from the rest of campus, making it difficult to meet the rest of your class. I would recommend making Russell your first choice for dorms, it has the biggest rooms and closets, along with a lot of handy built in storage space. Try to avoid eating weekend meals at Seaco, with the exception of brunch, because the weekend food is worse than usual. The Nest is good to eat at for lunch, but the amount of food that constitutes a meal swipe there is not filling enough to be eaten for dinner. There are a lot of cheap places to eat within walking distance of the school. On campus jobs are great and extremely convenient, although not easy to come by once you are already a student due to the high amount of applicants. If you are offered a job with your admission, I advise that you take it if you think at some later point you would like to have a campus job.

Excellent price, seemed to me to be a private education for the public price.
William from Burke, VA
One tip I have is to join clubs! That is a sure way to make friends here. Also, don't be afraid to talk to people sitting alone, that's how I made my closest friends here.
Jordan from Smithfield, VA
get enough sleep. many students here fail to do so and you can see it affecting their academic performances and also making them too worn out to have fun on weekends. also, always go to sunday brunch. it is delicious and something that most students try to go to at least once a month.
Lyndsey from Fredericksburg, VA
Get involved! I can't stress this enough, for any college or University you attend. I have found that since I became involved in a club that I have met more people, had more fun, and had so many more wonderful experiences. While academics are very important, it is also important that you feel comfortable and accepted where ever you go. Mary Washington has so many different clubs and organizations that it is not hard to find something that interests you. Also, if you don't find something it is not hard to create your own club.
Rebecca from Reston, VA
My advise to any prospective UMW students would be to read when the professors assign readings, they're not doing it because they want to...it WILL be on a pop quiz, test, or final. Believe me. And also to enjoy college. It's stressful but you will look back on it and remember the best times you had at UMW :)
Kelsie from Spotsylvania, VA
joining a club, cheering on the eagles at a sports event, and partaking in one of the almost daily events on campus are great ways to enjoy all that umw has to offer.
